A Few Show Tips for Both Newbies and Veterans

1. Don't Forget Cash. Some Vendors will Take Credit Cards, but Others are Cash Only.

2. Bring a Small Portable Cooler to Store the Corals that you Bought In.

3. Doors Open at 10:00 AM and the Event Ends at 7:00 PM on Both Days.
- VIP Entry is 10:00 AM
- Early Bird Entry is 11:00 AM
- General Admission is 1:00 PM


4. Be Aware of How Much Time You Take Talking to a Vendor if what Your Discussing Doesn't Involve Buying Something. Vendors are Very Helpful and Knowledgeable and Most Will Try to Help You, but Please be Conscious of the Fact that Vendors are There to Sell and Not to Explain How to Rid Your Tank of Nuisance Algae (For Example).

I always bring a couple of these Small Coleman Coolers.

To Keep the Corals that I Buy at the Right Temperature.

But any Cooler will do.
