    It's not restricted at all from what I understand. I might bring my Tanganyikan group down there so I can finally be a one tank guy.

    Ok thanks for the info. I was just seeing if it would be worth going down for it, but probably not.

    I've been going for a couple years now. There is always saltwater stuff for sale. Admittedly, it's predominately freshwater, but there are always odds and ends. Last spring someone brought 4 - 5gallon buckets of cured Florida live rock....it sold cheap. There's good deals for those who like to root out stuff.

    No fees for buying - what you bid is what you pay. For selling, the club takes the first dollar and then 20% after that.

    I just got back from the EIAA auction.   It's good to be one of a few "Reefers" at a mostly freshwater auction:
    [​IMG]
    1) 5 Gal Box of DT's Magnesium Additive
    2) 2 Bottles of DT's Magnesium Additive
    3) Bottle of DT's Alkalinity Additive
    4) Container of Reef Chili
    5) 2 Bottles of Seachem Advantage Calcium
    6) Kent Turbo Strontium
    7) Kent Coral Builder
    8) Kent Superbuffer -dKH
    9) 2 Small bottles of Seachem Reef Carbonate
    10) Small bottle of Seachem Reef Calcium
    11) Small bottle of Seachem Reef Plus (Vitamins & Amino Acid)
    12) Small bottle of Seachem Reef Complete (Calcium, Magnesium, Strontium)
    13) Large Acrylic Fish Trap
    Total Spent: $39
    There were several other reef items up for grabs as well (even a 48" dual 250W Metal Halide fixture) but I had to leave early.

    That is a killer deal for $39. It wasn't to bad, it always a good thing the check these things out. Never know what you can bring home cheap.  Bob told me that the light with 2 MH went for $100.
