Here we go again, the biggest coral show in the Northeast. I used to jokingly include this but it has become true over the last few years. I have quite a list of sellers already signed up and some room for new people as well. Pretty much all the major players will be there again this year, and a few pretty exciting new ones! As usual, I would love to add more hobbyists to the list, but let me know soon so I can save a space for you to sell.

I also wanted to mention the admission fee. Based on the # of people who came out last year (800+), I was asked to pay to use the school's space for this year's FFM. I very reluctantly decided that I had to raise the admission fee. I chose $5, and am planning to increase the number of FFM gift certificates that I give away as door prizes and in the raffle. I am also going to use some of the $ collected at the door to start a scholarship for college bound seniors planning to study biology. I am not sure what the scholarship looks like yet, but I promise that the $ will go to a good cause!

As in previous years, please let me know if you have questions or need any information on this year's FFM. It looks to be bigger and better than last year!

Thanks-
Jon

Here is a link to the shops and stores that will be participating in the FFM this year:
http://www.eosmithcoralproject.org/FFM2015.html
The list there does not include the 20+ hobbyists who are going to be there selling as well. The shops are great (Dr. Mac, Jason Fox, etc...) but the hobbyists can really be the diamonds in the rough at the FFM.

Will there also be a way to donate directly to the scholarship fund?

fitch4
01/25/2015, 08:21 AM
I was going to set something up at the door for people to donate directly to the scholarship. I have gotten a ton of messages and interest in the scholarship idea. I have a bunch of kids who work with me and go on to do marine biology, biology, conservation, etc... With the Frag Farmer's Market growing bigger each year, I wanted to be able to kick some $ back into the kids who help out to help them get a jump on their education. I am also thinking about setting up something bigger, beyond the walls of my school, but have to work out the details on that still. Thanks for the interest!

I just wanted to give Caribsea a huge thank you for again offering to provide the water for the FFM again. They have been a huge supporter of both the FFM and the school project.
Thanks!

People have been harassing me mercilessly to release the seller list for this year, so here is the preliminary list. I apologize ahead of time for the people that I did not get the location correct (in parenthesis next to the name). This is only the coral sellers. I have quite a few more dry goods vendors coming out this year for people to shop/chat with as well. I will put that list out in a bit. Also keep in mind that this is only the list SO FAR. I have a bunch of people who have contacted me and said that they are coming out but have not confirmed and/chosen their spot. That said, I still have a few open spots till those people confirm, so if you would like in, let me know. Enjoy!

Raffle "leak"...
Logan at ReefBreeders is putting a 4 channel dosing pump into the raffle at the FFM this year. I also want to extend a special thanks to him for offering to light tanks at the FFM for people who need (including the school's tank!) He will also be at the FFM this year showing off his LED fixtures, pumps, etc... A great guy and a great company- thanks Logan!

With the Frag Swap only a few weeks away, wouldn't it be nice if you could easily list frags that you wanted to sell and trade with other attendees? Wouldn't it also be nice to be able to see what others are bringing and have available?
The New England Frag Farmers Marker has been listed on ReefTrader and you can add or view existing listings! ReefTrader is and always will be free to use so check it out: http://www.reeftrader.com/swaps/8
Other clubs use sites like ReefTrader for their swaps, check out all of the listings for one of the swaps in Ohio: http://www.reeftrader.com/swaps/2/listings

I have gotten a TON of emails asking for clarification on how the FFM works so I thought it might be easier to just post the general info for people who have not been in the past.
The FFM is on March 7th and the doors open to the public at 11am (there is usually quite a line by then!). There are no advance tickets, you just need to pay at the door that day. Admission is $5 per person. Spouses, and kids under 15 are free.
It is a GIANT coral market, with a TON of corals for sale. Some swapping does go on but it is really just a way to bring together as many hobbyists and local shops as I can to sell off their "homegrown" stuff. The focus is really on the "homegrown" corals and promoting aquaculture, so you can figure on seeing lots of frags of all different types.
My seller list is pretty much full and I already have a small waiting list to get a space if people cancel but people are welcome to shoot me a PM and get on it. I have already had some spots open, so you never know!
Do me a favor in the last few weeks- spread the word!

Looks like we will be adding another dimension to the FFM this year. Lou Elkus from Tropic Marin will be giving a talk on "Basic Reef Chemistry" at some point during the day. In talking to him, he was very interested in doing something for the beginners, or people who really do not understand reef chemistry well. I will have time(s) and more details in the next few days.

Lou Elkus, from Tropic Marin and a huge supporter of the school's project, and I had been talking about the range of the crowd at the FFM- from legendary reefer to complete newbie. Lou mentioned that he gives a number of talks about reef chemistry. Having talked to Lou a number of times about various aspects of my own reefs, I thought it would be a great idea to include one of Lou's talks at the FFM to get some of the newer people up to speed on their own tanks. Here is the official announcement for Lou's talk:

http://i557.photobucket.com/albums/ss12/fitch4CT/acfe56df-f7e5-45e8-b955-491abb4d7f3d_zpsdj1x0rnw.jpg (http://s557.photobucket.com/user/fitch4CT/media/acfe56df-f7e5-45e8-b955-491abb4d7f3d_zpsdj1x0rnw.jpg.html)

At 1pm in the lecture hall of the school (just around the corner from all the corals!) Lou will be giving a talk titled "Basic Reef Chemistry." The talk will be focused on teaching the newer reefer the basics of reef chemistry including calcium, alkalinity, magnesium and more. I have heard Lou speak a number of times and he really has a gift for breaking down the complex ideas of reef chemistry into an easily understandable package. I highly recommend it. Oh, and by the way, the talk is FREE and anyone who attends the talk will be in the running for a $25 FFM Gift Certificate to be pulled at the end of the talk.
Thanks and see you all in a few weeks!

First, he is throwing a Superlux LED fixture into the raffle, to go with the dosing pump he was already putting in. He is also offering:

$20 off all Jaebo pumps, at the FFM only. He NEVER discounts them.

$40 off all Photon Units, again only at the FFM.

Ben at Building an Obsession is donating a very cool frag transport rack into the raffle. It is a step more than a "typical" rack, with plastic "locks" for the plugs so you can ensure their safety for your trip in/out. He is also sending out a few racks that can be mounted in your own transport containers, which I will have for sale that day. Lastly, he is offering FFM people a 15% discount off any orders from his site using the code : DR8UZWY
Thanks Ben!

I just got back from the school (okay, I might have slept for a few hours...) and about 1/2 the people came to set-up last night. I have to say that the stuff people brought this year, compared to previous years, is amazing. Just walking around, I saw quite a few things that I had never seen before. The only problem that I had was that I was too busy to cherry pick anything before the FFM got going! Seriously, I am positive that this will be the biggest and best FFM yet, with more set-ups, and just about all of the local clubs there to promote their events and club. Do me one last favor and tell someone about the event this morning, or just stop by their house and grab them on your way out. When you are at the FFM today, stop by and introduce yourself. I love to meet all the people that are just as crazy as I am!

I just want to extend a quick thanks to everyone that came out to the FFM yesterday. The event was awesome and it was great to see such a huge crowd all gathered together to talk reefs and pick up some great corals. It was also cool to see some of the local reefing "celebs" at the event. I also have to say that the quality of the corals that were there yesterday was way beyond what I have ever seen at the FFM in previous years.
I also want to thank all of the people who helped out with set-up, troubleshooting and clean up afterwards. Without all of your help, the FFM would not run as smoothly as it did. Thanks again and mark your calendars:
