Our 2020 frag swap speaker is.....

The Indiana Marine Aquarium Society is excited to announce that our 2020 frag swap educational speaker is none other than the legendary Richard Ross!! 

You will most recently know Rich as one of the duo from the new Skimmate Podcast as well as the Master of Ceremonies for the MACNA banquet.   If you have never had the enjoyment of listening to and speaking with Rich you will not want to miss this opportunity.  I think many would declare him "The most interesting man in aquatics!".    

Richard Ross

Richard Ross is known for his“Skeptical Reefkeeping” article series, his groundbreaking work with cephalopod husbandry, his entertaining and informative talks, and for managing the ambitious 212,000 gallon reef tank in the Steinhart Aquarium in the California Academy of Sciences. “It’s so great. I get to work on what interests me in a variety of ways; I write and speak about the practical philosophy of aquarium keeping and animal welfare in the hobby press, and I get to publish in academic journals. I get to practice the fascinating craft of aquarium keeping on a daily basis, as well as participate in various kinds of field work like coral sexual reproduction. Through it all, I have the ongoing challenge and honor of working with incredible species like pygmy seahorses, unique cephalopods, ghost pipefish and more”.

Richard was presented with the MASNA Aquarist of the Year award in 2015, and his work has been covered by Scientific American, National Geographic, Penn’s Sunday School, NPR’sScience Friday, Discovery News and Fox News.

If you have Never Been to a Coral Show Before Check out this Video from a previous swap to get an idea of all the fun that you will have. image.gif.09ad05dad45586e42bae9f1c66e122ee.gif:)

Vendors from around the country come to sell coral (much of which are the amazing brightly colored corals that you see online).

It is also a great way to meet old friends and make new friends that are in the hobby.

You will find the hottest Zoanthids, Acros, Acans, Chalices, Mushrooms, etc. all at great prices!

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 Portable Cooler - to Store the Corals that you Bought In and to Keep them at the Right Temperature.

3. Doors Open at 12:00 Noon and the Swap Ends at 4:00 PM

4. Admission is $5 Kids are FREE too. Having the Exact Amount Helps Things Go Smoother at the Entrance.

5. Please be Patient with Vendors. Please keep in mind time is short and the crowds are large, if a vendor does not have adequate time to answer all of your questions ask for a business card or web address follow up with them at a later date, they are all professional and have great experience with keeping salt water tanks thriving but time is limited.  The chaos can be great at these shows.  The vendors greatly appreciate your business.
