    We will be doing another auction during Reef ED and this time around part of the proceeds will be going to benefit a group that should be near and dear to us all... the Coral Restoration Foundation. Who is working on education, conservation and restoration of the Coral reefs in the U.S., and primarily around Florida and the Keys.

    So come bring your items to sell in the auction. You can put in just about anything aquarium related as long as it's alive, healthy or in good working order. Make some cash and help a good cause while you at it.

    As mentioned, proceeds for this events auction will be going to The Coral Restoration Foundation, who is working to conserve, restore and educate about the coral reefs in the U.S., and around Florida. If you haven't checked them out yet, you should take a minute and read over their mission. Find out more about them here https://www.coralrestoration.org/about

    So time to clean out those fish closets, make a little cash, and help a good cause, all at the same time. Bring your items to auction off at the event. Just about anything aquarium or marine related will work. New/user gear, tanks, stands, coral frags, livestock, ect... As long as its clean, in working order, or in good health, we will auction it off. See auction full rules for more details. https://www.marinecolorado.org/threads/official-masc-auction-rules.27014/
