Hi, me again!

I'm starting this thread as Anthony suggested to discuss who's coming, what'cha bringing ect. I'll check in as much as I can but I'll let you guys carry the ball here.

Anthony's list:

Some "blueberry" zoo frags.
Assorted other zoo frags (colourful)
Assorted mushroom frags
A few Red Fromia starfish
Red Halimenia macroalgae
Chaeto macroalgae
Packs of 50 sheets of Nori

Possibly:
some frogspawn
trumpet/candycanes
colt coral

for food: I'll bring a big 1.5 kg pack of Harvest Beef Weiners I just picked up from Costco if someone else local can supply the buns & condiments. Don't want to crush the buns bringing them from Burnaby.

Anthony

May be able to bring over some small stuff from the Lower Mainland LFS.

I just fragged around 30 ricordea this morning, some are spoken for the rest are up for trade (I'm looking for sps frags mostly :biggrin: )

I also have an unlimited supply of purple tip, green and orange montipora digitata, yellow monti cap and maybe some purple cap.

For the potluck bbq I'll bring some dessert, nobody wants to eat my potato salad after its been sitting in the car for 4 hours :razz:

I will try to join and would like to get some zoo frags. :biggrin:

05-29-2007, 05:00 PM
I have 2 very very large colt corals on rock each weighing over 3lbs, 1 large leather coral, and some Kenya Tree frags, mushrooms of varying color....will post pics later, if anyone is interested in the large corals I would bring them with me....but they are LARGE....I am interested in $$, easy SPS, Ricordea and zoos. PM me if interested in them at all, so I can plan it.....they would be excellent choices for newer large tanks that need some colonies and have spaces to fill!

I can bring Caesar Salad if that's ok, if there is any other items in need such as buns etc let me know as I can bring that too....any thought to having a 50/50 draw? It would help cover meat and miscellaneous supplies PLUS someone ends up a winner....let me know if any interest in it and I will grab tickets....it will be my husband, myself and possibly one of our kids.

http://i28.photobucket.com/albums/c212/Chaloupa/FTS.jpg

here is the colt...one in the centre and one is behind it....the front one is very very large, the toad on the right is the one I would like to sell also....sorry for the photo skills or LACK thereof!

To add to my corals for sale/trade...if anyone is interested I have a pair of Gold Stripe Maroon clowns that I would trade or sell. let me know via PM and I can bring them (cooler, etc etc to go with them)

PoonTang
05-31-2007, 04:36 AM

marie
06-06-2007, 11:49 PM
Unfortunately I won't be bringing any ricordias to the bbq, I lost a large portion of the frags to brown jelly this weekend and the rest don't look good :cry: .
I will bring montipora if any one wants some. I have some yellow cap, purple cap, green, orange and purple tip digi. I also have pink birdsnest i can frag

06-07-2007, 12:25 AM
I'll be bringing some softie frags and a sebae anemone if anyone is interested in it.

AW! Sorry to hear about your ric frags Marie! I'm always interested in your frags of SPS!

Scavenger

Hi all,

Sorry I haven't been able to keep up here. Anyway, for those that pm'ed for directions, I'll have them out soon.

We may be setting a first here. This might be the first frag meeting without a reeftank. Things have developed about a year before I thought they would. My wife and I are getting into a position to buy our first house. As the older kids have or are about to move out, we are looking at a much smaller house. I've had a great offer on my current 110 system and will be busy getting repairs and maintance done here, and I really don't forsee having the room for it (and alot of other toys) once moved. I'm taking a bit of a hiatus until settled and at that point will set up a nano or smaller tank. I will at least have some salt water in the 48 gallon to serve as a float tank for the event however.

I'm still more than willing to have you all over, but appologize if I have no tank for you to see. Perhaps other local reefers would be willing to have a tank tour after the bbq and frag swap???

I'm off to the west coast for the weekend guiding a couple of fishing charters so I'll check back on Monday and see how things are developing.

Hi,

I've sent directions via pm to all who requested them. If I missed you, just let me know. Anyway, as 1 of our weekend charters canceled, we had a chance to do some personal fishing so I'll have a couple of salmon to toss on the BBQ on Sunday. Looking forward to seeing you all.

BCWolfen
06-15-2007, 02:15 AM
Thats a terrible time. I'm thinking more like 5:30pm till 10pm. lol
Unfortunately I will be there late in the afternoon. I initailly had Sunday off, but now I have to help with the ocean dives for the scuba class this weekend. Hopefully there will be a bit left when I get there. If not, too bad. I may send Amber up during the day with some $$ LOL

Anthony, If you still need a ride, Amber can still pick you up from the ferry and take you to Ken's. No problemo!!

Just fire me a pm or call the cell #. Ambers cell # is the same as mine except ending in 2 instead of 1. If your calling Sunday morning I'll probably be underwater by 10am LOL

06-16-2007, 04:10 AM
Would anybody be interested in a small frag of my staghorn coral. This thing has amazing colouration when seen from the top and I suspect it would be even better under 400w MH. I'll also have pink birdsnest frags If anyone is interested

On a side note, the staghorn skeleton is considerably harder to cut then montipora, hence all the smaller frags that I have :mrgreen:

This is the coral I fragged a chunk off

Well I'm officially reefless now. But I have about 20 gallons of fresh water in the 48 to serve as a float tank. Hopefully keep your frags warm and cozy in their bags. I wanted to add salt, but alas, my bucket has solidified and I don't have tiime to scrape it and fluff it up.

Anyway, as I don't have frags, I will be dumping more hardware that I don't think I'll need.

1 five gallon tank
2 175 MH + 2 40w flourecent ballest box
1 five gallon bucket of recently live sand (free)
1 xp3 filter
1 ac 300 filter

Lookin forward to seeing you all tomorrow!

I'll be bringing the all-beef weiners if someone local can pick up some buns. Thanks.

I'll have some red halimenia macroalgae, red fromia starfish, Hawaiian featherdusters, blue zoo frags, & maybe a few assorted small frags.

Anthony

06-17-2007, 07:28 AM
Frags I'll be bringing;
#1-1 head of hammer coral $10.00
#2-2 heads of hammer coral $15.00
#3-2 heads of frogspawn bright green with bright pink tips $15.00
#4-many mushrooms by the polyp $5.00 ea?
#5-Frogspawn colony roughly 8-11 heads (some in the splitting process) incredibly healthy $55.00
#6-if their is someone that is interested I still have 1 colony of monster size colt coral....the rock it is on is large and so is the coral....they are also under 400w right now, and are doing well but would prefer less lighting than that.....I need to be PM'd to bring this one along as I don't want to bring it down and back again! $60.00
#7-Kenya trees....
the frags are not mounted on anything...just their own skeleton for positioning


All corals are incredibly healthy and doing very well....have been under 150w over 14 inches from halide and recently at the bottom of my 150g with 400w....doing well in both situations....all are up for trade also for Zoos, Micromussa or Acan polyps, or easy to keep SPS .... if you would like one reserved please let me know before 10:00am tomorrow! If you would like pictures of any PM me with your email address.

See you all there!

Thanks Christy and Anthony for the frags!!! Thanks Ken for hosting!!
Hopefully I can make it for the next one.

06-18-2007, 08:44 AM
Amber thanks for grabbing the buns:wink: and cooking the weiners:redface:

Thanks especially for being my driver.

Scavenger, thanks for hosting. The food was great & its too bad more reefers couldn't have stuck around to visit more.

It's after 12:30 at night & I finally finished putting away all the new corals (thanks Marie:biggrin: ) Everything has their polyps opening up already, within minutes of being positioned after hours in the bags & coolers & at least 30 minutes being handled while reaquascaping the whole right side of my tank.

It was great meeting everyone who showed up & that feeding frenzy over the frags & starfish was fun & really helped pay for the trip over.

See you all at the next one.

Anthony

Was realy looking forward to this, but I will have to cancel. We will be satying on the other side of the island that weekend now. Hope everyone has fun.
