Minerals for Kids

Dealers are encouraged to bring free minerals for kids. They are also encouraged to bring $1.00 specimens for the more discriminating wealthy kids.

 

Aquarium Display Cases

This is an inexpensive solution for dealer display cases.   The image below shows a 10 gallon fish tank sitting on top of a 20 gallon fish tank.   The 10 gallon is priced at $14 and the 20 gallon at $26 at Petsmart.   The lights are Portfolio Black Roundback track lights available at Lowe’s for $40.  3 lamps and housings come with the track.   An extra lamp can be purchased to maximize the illumination.  An adapter to bring a cord and plug into the track will be needed unless you want to jury rig the ceiling connector. 

Several extra 10 gallon tanks are available for show dealers.  Contact Bart Cannon at cannonmp@comcast.net to arrange to pick them up at his house.

  TUB Display Cases. 

A couple of these cases should be available. Contact Bart Cannon at cannonmp@comcast.net to arrange to pick these up at his house on Friday night or Saturday morning.  The tubs bottoms are 22″ x 16″.  The top tapers out to 24″ x 18″.
