You can bring any kind of aquarium related thing for the little auction they have at each meeting. Just bag some up, as many fish/plants per bag as you like, and label them with your name or initials or whatever and a number. You get a sheet of paper to put your name on, and list what you're selling by the numbers. The club takes 10% of the proceeds, IIRC.
People usually bring in plants, some fish and miscellaneous stuff. Most things go for a dollar or two, although it occasionally gets up there for an especially beautiful plant.

I bring in my 'weeds' and microworm starter cultures, and it always pays for the subway ride, at least. For me, it's not about making money but 'spreading the wealth' of stuff I have too much success growing! So I usually bring in several of everything so everybody who wants it can get it at the minimum price, and the club benefits.

People do use the meetings as an opportunity to meet up and make swaps arranged in advance, too.

Excellent. I'll have lots of baggies for trades, and some for auction.

I'd wouldn't mind trying a couple stems of that rotala.
Want to trade for a C. Undulata 'Copper' ?

I find it kind of odd that the FW club is dong a meeting on a SW topic... sort of stepping on MAST's toes

I'm interested in learning from S/W fishkeepers even at a F/W meetup,
it's all fascinating. There's zero chance of me starting any salty tanks,
other than brackish, but I'm interesting in knowing as much as I can about everything related to fishkeeping, salty or fresh.
