The seller list for the 2018 FFM is pretty much full. If there are hobbyists out there who are interested, let me know and I will add you to the waiting list.

If there are companies who would like to come out for the day, get in touch soon. I do have space for companies still but that will fill up too! With over 1000 people in attendance the last two years and a VERY low set-up fee, you will be glad you made the trip!

I just got the official word that CaribSea will be supplying the water again for the FFM. I just want to give a shout out to Betsey and everyone down at Caribsea for their continued support of the school project and the FFM.

Here is the contest that is associated with the FFM this year- thanks to Lou from Tropic Marin! I have three corals that need names (so I can charge twice as much for them when I sell them...). I am not looking for the scientific names, something a little more fun! Here are quick descriptions of each to compensate for my poor photography skills:

Coral #1 is a Neon green Leptoseris (maybe?) with a purpleish growth rim

Coral #2 is a Light, mint green Acropora with big "bulby" coralites

Coral #3 is a deep purple Rhodactis mushroom with neon green fringing tentacles

Email your names to me with the subject "2018 FFM Coral Name Entry" by Thursday March 1st to be considered. Winners will be announced on the FB page, and here on RC that night. Winners MUST pick up their salt buckets at the FFM on March 3rd- just another reason to go to the biggest event on the East Coast! Thanks to Lou Elkus and Tropic Marin for sponsoring this FFM contest!

It has come to my attention that people may not have the correct email for the "Name that Coral" contest- the email is swansonjL <-- that is an L not a 1 in the email address. Whoever is at swansonj1 is probably VERY confused about the emails he has been getting!
Entries have been trickling in, keep em coming - this is free Tropic Marin salt that you could win here!

Here are the speakers for the FFM this year. I tried to put together a range of subjects and include some new ideas. As always, the talks are free with admission to the FFM.

This year's New England Frag Farmer's Market looks to be bigger and better than last year's. There are more coral vendors at this swap than ANY other swap and includes lots of BIG names! Add to that a HUGE raffle- spoilers to come... See you all there!
