The Midwest Frag Fest is the the largest marine aquarium event in the central U.S. and Reef Builders will be attending in full force with our very own booth and no fewer than 4 Reef Builders writers. Not only will we be liveblogging from MFF like we did with the MAX show but we will have our very first Reef Builders Lounge. The RB Lounge will feature some of the latest in high end products for the marine and reef aquarium like the VorTech MP10, the Vertex Alpha 250, the twinarc lamp and LED striplights from Advanced LIghting Solutions and a bevyy of other novel aquarium products. The Reef Builders booth will also have some relaxed seating for all of you to stop by and engage each other in progressive discussions of aquarium equipment and livestock. Last year we saw many cool aquarium products and some really unique livestock and we expect no less from this year’s MFF. We hope to meet many of our Chicagoland Reef Builders readers in person so be sure to attend Midwest Frag Fest (this weekend 4/25-26) and stop by the Reef Builders Lounge.
