Scales N Tails in Joplin hosts aquatic swap meet

JOPLIN, Mo. —Scales n tails in Joplin held an aquatic swap meet.

The swap meet sold everything aquatic-related – from fish food and equipment to actual fish. The organizer of the aquatic swap meet says they hosted the event to get more of the community interested in this hobby.

They say having water and fish in one’s home can even help people relax and unwind.

“This is a hobby of peace and tranquility, this is something you can dive into your creative side. You could create beautiful scapes, you could create an underwater world and ecosystem that you have in your own mind and vision,” said Co-owner Derrick Harper.
