Here it is, the official announcement for the biggest coral swap in the universe (at least it feels that way for me...). My students and I have been working hard to get the ball rolling for the 2019 FFM. I have a great list of coral farmer's lined up for the 2019 FFM, including a few new additions. With 60+ coral vendors, and a bunch of dry goods companies, you will not find a bigger selection of corals anywhere. It looks to be another amazing year for the FFM! I'll post more info here as the weeks go on!
See you all in March!

The list of vendors continues to grow... I'll post the epic list of vendors that will be at the FFM in a few days. This looks to be the biggest FFM yet!

I've never been to a swap. How are prices at swaps usually?

At the FFM, you have 60+ vendors, with a mix of hobbyists and shops. With that many people selling, the prices tend to be very good. If someone is asking too much, just move along to the next guy who has that coral.

100+ vendors, more coral vendors than at any other show, great speakers, door prizes, a HUGE raffle, a painting session with Rachel from Reef Weeds, a cornhole tournament with the Reef Shine Guys, only a $5 admission, and all the proceeds go to support the coral project at the school! My students and I have been working hard to get this whole thing together. Hope to see all of you at E.O. Smith High School in Storrs CT on March 2nd!

I went in 2006 or 2007 as a freshman - It was so long ago haha. There weren't any corals there then from what I can remember. I am very excited to come down and start filling out my 50g.

The eye candy that is being posted up in the FB group has been CRAZY. I can't seem to convince the vendors to post here so here is a sampling of what has been posted there by sellers at the FFM to show off what they are bringing...
Less than a week to go, 100+ vendors, not a show to miss!!!
