So what did you come back with?
Lol 33 corals. We spent about $900. I got some crazy $10 corals too at the end. They had raja rampage frag for $10. I didn’t get it, but I got 8 other killer $10 each corals from BSA corals at the end. Pretty sure they would all be $40-$60 frags at LFS or online. Here’s a pic of them acclimating. Will post pics after they settle in!

I only got one coral, a cotton candy torch at the end for cheap! But I also picked up an NOS Puratek RODI for a good price and some other bits and bobs and @Vivid Creative Aquatics hooked me up with a not even on the market yet RFA to try out on my new cube. I will review that on my build thread. But best of all... Winner Winner chicken dinner... Raffle Eshopps Aqua-Fuge plus a Bio cup R.
And Garreth over @reelreefrock gave me a deal on a bucket of frag rock

I wonder what attendance is like vs Aquashella? We had Aquashella here a week ago and I'm guessing they had around 5000 to 7000 in attendance over the 2 days. Not sure if they publish numbers but I would love to know. When I got there at 11am there were probably 500+ people in front of me and the place was packed when I got inside. We are having RAP here in a couple of months so I guess I will find out.

Also, what is the difference in the entrance packages as far as the badges go? The $125 package has a "diamond" badge and the $225 has an "ultimate pass". I can't find anything saying exactly what those different badges get you.

I just got $30 normal pass. Went at 2pm and was there for final 4 hours and they definitely were lowering prices at the end!

Nice that’s sick! I got a $25 super neon green hammer. Small but I’m super excited about it! Will post pics soon. Got 32 corals for 900ish plus won free frag in a raffle at one booth where the guy just pushed the spinning wheel over so we’d win cause they were trying to give away last couple frags and we were hyping them up haha.

Most of the vendors I bought from I've dealt with in the past and they know my face. I was able to get great deals on most of what I bought. Paying cash also helps. Unfortunately everything I see that I like is very expensive so my $800 only got me a couple of things. It is going to be interesting to see who is at RAP since Aquashella - Chicago is the same weekend. One vendor I was hoping was going to be here said they were going to do Aquashella instead.
