MACNA in New Orleans last weekend was one of the best looking reef aquarium shows we’ve ever been to. Despite the unfriendly traveling conditions due to Hurricane Harvey making landfall not far from the conference, the vendors and exhibitors all showed up with some of the best booths, and the best wares, that we can ever hope to see at our hobby’s biggest annual event.
Despite a minor ‘health delay’ on our part, we still managed to see, document and film a huge pile of great new products. Some of these were making world debuts, while others might have been making their first North American appearance. Either way there was so much great new gear and announcements that you’d have to be blind to think the hobby is sitting still.
We had a great time at MACNA seeing everyone, meeting new reefers and old friends alike, and we’ve got a substantial video reel to show for it. Be sure to follow us along as we break up our MACNA adventure into a number of video parts, bringing you as close to the action as we humanly know how.
