OK I think it's official.

This years event will be a combination of swap meet and silent auction.
all sellers should contact me via PM to let me know you need some space to sell.
For those who want to submit auction frags I will need exact coral frag types and amounts as soon as you can.


Date: June 27th 2010
Time : 11:00am until everything is sold (this usually happens fast)
Location : Seahorse Fanatic's house (exact location will be posted here closer to the event)
6745 Lakeview Ave, Burnaby
Anthony's cell is 604-868-5553.
Please e-mail photos to reefnetwork@gmail.com for all corals that will be entered into the auction

many of us canreef members are just as fascinated with freshwater aquatics as with reef keeping (just take a look at forum here dedicated to freshwater keeping). to stir up most everyones' enthusiasm why not encourage people to also bring in freshwater equipments, livestocks, plants etc and make the swap party a roaring success. i myself for one will be hunting for treasures you might be bringing in.

Give me a shout later when you guys get a chance. I'll send up a few things if you like so you can auction off and use the proceeds for your expenses.

By All means I think it was the first swap meet we encouraged the Fresh water people to come out. Unfortunately not a lot came. But by all means we can do that

I will have 5 patio tables available and lots of deck/camp chairs. If you are selling and have a small table, you're welcome to bring it along.

Freshwater & saltwater enthusiasts are welcome to this event. Bring your families if you want. This will be a great chance for you to prove to your spouses that NO you are not so crazy, here's somone crazier about fish & corals. I have 8 tanks to view (from a 3 gallon cherry shrimp tank to a 210g mixed reef) for almost 750g total volume.

My wife Irene will be making some Malaysian food (probably some spicy noodle soup dish & maybe curry chicken on coconut milk rice) as well as bbqing up some weiners & smokies if anybody wants to buy an inexpensive lunch on-site instead of taking off for McDs. Pop & juice will also be available.

Start time is 11am & we'll run it till 4:30pm or whatever time everyone leaves.

This Sunday morning.

Anthony, Irene & Felicia:biggrin:

It doesn't look like the Auction is going to have a huge amount of Corals. Most people appear to be selling in the Swap meet fashion. Nothing wrong with that.
We will still have the Auction. There are 29 corals in the Auction. I will post times and coral names Later today

Well folks, I won't be able to attend tomorrow anymore. Someone just decided to hit-n-run my car tonight on the way home, so I'm going to dealing with this BS tomorrow.

Really I was only coming to grab a frag of Anthony's awesome purple bonsai and one other nice frag for the new tank. If someone can take pity on this cursed soul, could you save me a frag?:cry:

SeaHorse_Fanatic
06-27-2010, 10:28 AM
I'll save you a frag or if they all sell, then I'll make you a fresh one when you can make it over here.

SeaHorse_Fanatic
06-27-2010, 10:46 AM
So, after fragging for the last month, I will have available:

Purple bonsai/purple plasma/bali tricolour frags
Deep red chalice frags
Photosynthetic gorg. frags (purple, purple whip & orange rod) - have had for over a year in captivity now, so very hardy for gorgs.
Neon green zoas
Neon orange zoas
Duncans (frags & small colonies)
Green hammers (frags & small colonies)
Green Favia frags
Green Pipe Organ
3 Aussie War Coral (Neon orange-red with pastel baby-blue/green centers).
Blue-Green trumpet coral (small colony).
Purple Rhodactis indica mushroom colony (4 shrooms)
Med. toadstool with long polyps (if anybody is interested).

The vast majority of these have been aquacultured, either in my tank or another local reefers' tank, so should be very hardy.

See you all in the morning/early afternoon.

Yard has been prepped.

Deck is stained.

4 patio tables & 1 huge table & 2 small "tables" are set up with chairs for the sellers. The huge table can easily handle 3 sellers but is on the lawn & not on the covered deck.

2 bbqs prepped & ready for firing.

Malaysian curry chicken with potatoes & eggs is cooked & soaking up the flavours.

Cutlery, plates, paper towels, chips, salsa ready.

Wife & possibly parents set to help host/cook.

Seating for 30+ crazed reefers is all set.


Now if someone can bring us some good weather, we're golden.:wink:

For those who have never been or can't remember how to get here, Mapquest or Googlemap it.

The address again is:

6745 Lakeview Ave, Burnaby
604-868-5553 or 604-437-6172

I have stacked several salt buckets next to my driveway by the street so reefers can spot the place.:wink:

Come around the right side of the four-plex to get to my backyard where the swap meet will be taking place.

Well its almost 3:30am so good night & see you all here tomorrow. Can't promise that the host will be bright eyed or bushy tailed though.
