Two (2) guest Speakers added to our Frag Swap event. Laura Birenbaum & Michael Paletta

Don’t forget to register for your tickets.

Laura has been devoted to her career in the reef aquarium industry for over 13 years and has been a fish keeper for most of her life. In addition to her internship at the Steinhart Aquarium, she has worked on many sides of the trade including aquarium retail, wholesale and manufacturing and earned a B.S. in Marine Biology at Western Washington University.

Laura is the proud Owner and Co-Founder of ReefGen, a wholesale coral and fish aquaculture company in Riverhead, NY. ReefGen propagates a diverse selection of coral frags in collaboration with the Long Island Aquarium and Exhibition Center. Laura’s focus and passion has been breeding Dwarf Cuttlefish (Sepia bandensis,) which are now being distributed through retailers across the country. She eagerly looks forward to future cephalopod breeding opportunities with bobtail squid, flamboyant cuttlefish, and more!

Michael has been keeping marine tanks since 1980 and reef tanks since 1985. During the past 30 years he has written over 250 articles on marine fish and invertebrates in both the US and Europe. Magazines he has written for include Aquarium Fish Magazine, SeaScope, Practical Fishkeeping, Aquarium Frontiers, Coral and Freshwater and Marine Aquarium. His first book “The Modern Marine Aquarium” is an attempt to simplify marine fish keeping for the beginning hobbyist while at the same time incorporating advances that have been made due to reef keeping. His second book “Ultimate Marine Aquariums” illustrates how far the hobby has come in the past 15 years. In this book are examples of just about every type of reef tank using different methodologies and technology. Michael has enjoyed speaking at over 180 marine societies and national conferences in North America, Canada, South America and Europe. Michael has appeared on both local and national radio shows to discuss the hobby and to help new hobbyists become successful. Currently Michael has 300, 90. 75, 40 and 26- gallon reef tanks of various types set up in his home. He has helped in the set up of over 200 tanks throughout the U.S, including several tanks over 4,000 gallons in capacity. Michael is also currently writing a weekly blog on ReefBuilders and has done over 30 videos for American Reef. Michael also acted as a consultant with the National Aquarium in Baltimore and the Pittsburgh Zoo Aquarium. Michael has B.S. from Dickinson College and a Master’s degree from Yale University. Michael has also been a technical consultant for several equipment manufacturers and online companies. Michael is currently employed in sales in the biotechnology field.

No fragswapper setup to arrange between hobbyists?

I agree, and $250 for a booth yikes! To me the normal hobbyist will loose money setting up a booth.

There’s a hobbyist to hobbyist swap thread on the NJRC site. I spoke with Kevin, the NJRC President :slight_smile:

Can hobbyist setup a table?
