Visitors to MACNA 2022 in Milwaukee met with a wide range of coral vendors, including regional staples, new farmers, and nationally recognized coral purveyors. Friday’s early admission for MASNA members gave folks the first crack at the rarest corals and best selection, while Sunday was the day to pick up your corals and snag some last-minute deals. Here is a virtual walk-through with a glimpse of most vendors who were present and enjoying person-to-person interactions with reefkeepers.
