    Sweet, glad to see more of these types of events.

    Although they forgot fairy floss as well?

    AS far as invertebrates go depend if they are fresh water or marine. Fresh water would be in Class 11 Any other Variety or if they are marine they would be in Class 19 Marine.
    Hope this helps
    There will be plenty of Fairy Floss at the show.
