a sunday would be easyer for my self as my daughter has stuff I have to drive her to and my wife does not drive. She has MS and they would not renew her drivers licence 8 years ago. So it's all up to me to do the driving, I would prefer a sunday besides trafic is better on sunday I think. I wouild have to say it would have to br the 21st if it were on a saturday and I would have to pass it by sick lid but I'm sure he would be ok with it not 100% though.

Bill

If no one has a date that they perfer then I will set the date and let sick lid know. come on guys pipe up and let me know what date is good for you.. I have some candy cane a couple finger leathers, a few zoes on frag plugs and maybe some mushrooms, I may even have a blasto to bring a green digita. if everyone listed what they want to bring maybe more intrest will come of this you can bring a friend that is not on canreef.

On direct orders from the wife -- I had to clean up and de-junk my basement office.

I was thinking that is anyone wanted any of it, I would bring it with my.

Please note: my wife is VERY anti-clutter and the idea is that if you have a use for it, great. If you are just going to put into your basement, that would get me into trouble :lol:

What's going either to a good home or the dumpster :

A 5 gal pail pull of bio-balls, a prism HOB skimmer and a "aquarium solutions" skimmer. they need some TLC but both work. If you want to give me a nive SPS frag I'll take it in trade, or you can just have any/all of it. It's all going in the dumpster otherwise.

I'll try to make this event, can't guarantee though. I have some good sized hammer corals (3 with at least 10 heads each), GSP, plain brown zoas, some red macroalgae if anyone is interested, chaeto of course as well. I also have two GBTA clones from a recent split. If interested advise and I'll bring at least one of those, if not, it will save me the trouble of disturbing my Maroon Clownfish nest to get it out. I'd be looking for a small SPS frag or two since I have none at this time and think my system's about ready.

I am ordering mangrove pods for the frag swap. I can order other cleaners and fish, they would arrive in 2-3 weeks.
mini hermit .75
medium hermit 1.15
cerith snail .75
astria snail .95
tequila turbo snail 1.30
emerald crab 4.00
cleaner shrimp (unknown till arrival)
peppermint shrimp 6.00
fire shrimp 20.00
mangrove pods 4.00

I can get other inverts and fish just PM me. I might also have to many snails/hermits when they come in. If someone could help house some of the extras for a bit I can leave some behind for the favor :biggrin:.

I am going to be ordering livestock for the frag swap. If you order now, before it arrives (Aug 26-27), I can give a better discount.

I'll take 10 cerith, 5 turbo, 2 pods. Also I got lots of room for you to keep stuff in.

FitoPharmer
08-20-2010, 03:00 AM
Sorry, I just got a call from my supplier. The livestock order will be delayed for 2+ weeks. I have to piggy back my order to get the best price. The hopefully mangrove pods should be arriving before the swap still since they are on a different order. Let me know what you want for cleaners and I can still hold it for you. I'm not sure how long they will last at that price.

08-20-2010, 03:31 AM

anyone want a six line wrasse as I know some one that is going to be selling one and I can bring him to the frag swap for you, I do not know how much he wants but let me know what you want to pay and I can ask at least till I have a solid asking price that is. I have 3 blue dansels that I can let go for a nice sps frag or a LPS frag. Aug 20 I just found out he wants $10.00 OBO or a nice frag.

Looks like we'll be around this weekend, so will probably head over that way.
I will have a few more pieces of unmounted plating green monti if anyone's interested. The darn thing is so big it gets accidentally fragged every so often when my naso tang gets frisky and I just don't have the time to mount them..
I also have a couple pieces of pulsing xenia. I know- everyone's nightmare- but a pretty addition to someone's tank who's just starting out, and it is very pulsating and it's on short stalks, not the long stuff (yet).
Let me know if any interest.

Well, I figured I'd post up what I'm hoping for just on the hopes that others might do the same, and that I might be more of what I'm looking for.


Overall -- I'll be leaving with less money, and more frags that I come with :)

Looking really for SPS (would LOVE a pruple monti cap), and other such pretty things.

I'll be bringing mostly small SPS frags, with the exception of some orange cap which I'll bring peices is anyone want it. My orange cap is getting huge (18" across now), I can easily break off some larger pieces, but I don't want to bring large bits if no one wants it (or small if you want).

I'm hoping people that are either hoping to sell or buy post up so that there is general idea for those that are bringing frags to figure out how much to bring.


PS. see my earlier post about the freebie stuff I'm getting rid of. It goes in the trash after this weekend.

Dang it. I was hoping to come up for the swap meet but have to replace my hot water tank this weekend instead. Share the tank with the upstairs family & the pilot light keeps going out & the lady upstairs is getting on our case to replace the tank asap. Small chance of coming up but if I do, will mostly be bringing sps frags & some zoas.

08-28-2010, 09:16 PM
Check my earlier post (first one on page 2) for what I plan to bring. I do have a little red macroalgae but it's already spoken for.

On another note, I'm thinking of bringing my refractometer just to see how it does with readings of other people's water. Might be a good opportunity to compare readings and add to the ongoing debate on how to best calibrate a refracto, i.e. is calibration fluid really worth the effort & expense. So if everyone would take a reading of the water they're using to transport their frags and mark the bags/containers with SG reading, we could all benefit from a little experimentation and comparison.

bvlester
08-29-2010, 06:02 AM

I'd like to second the motion. Thanks to Bill for the regular reminders to keep us informed and Larry, well holy cow, gracious host of the event and his fish room in the basement.... I haven't seen that many, admittedly, but that set up is pro all the way. The only one I've seen that's more elaborate is J&L in the big V. My LFS marine offerings pale in comparison. I was going to peek at his electrical meter on the way out, but forgot to. I'm sure he's got an underground power plant going there somewhere to run all the stuff. Thanks again to Wolf and Bill for their generosity, frags, fish and otherwise. It was nice to see the odd bit of hardware available as well.

I didn't think I left that early, (after 13:00)... what/who did I miss? Look forward to the next one, if only to have another ogle at Larry's setup, if he's generous enough to host the next one that is.

Hello and thanks to everyone that I met. That was a real good time and nice to meet nice people with the same interest. All the corals are doing excellent. infact when i opened the box at home most of them were waiting for food with mouths open.

To the host, WOW , what an amazing show of prestine husbandry and dedication to the hobby both salt and fresh. Hard to describe to others just how amazing that was. Thank you again.

As newbies, that was absolutely awesome to meet you all and tap into your knowledge.

The frags we bought and were given look really good.

Thank you Larry, my wife showed our girls the video of the clowns and they were just in absolute aww.

It was cool to talk to other people who are so passionate about this hobby. It's funny when I start talking about my tank to someone who doesn't share the addiction. I hear this little voice saying "OK Shawn, shorten up the conversation", but I just cant, so I end up sounding like a total addict :)

bvlester
08-30-2010, 07:37 AM
I think any reefer can say the same thing we all get on topic about tanks and corals and fish. The next thing you know 3 hours have gone by and there is always someone in the back ground saying I thought that you said you would be only 15 minutes.....
The natural answer is I just can not help it or I did not notice the time go by.
I think one of these frag swaps should be a frag and equipment swap, I think spring is good for that. The other should be a BBQ lunch kind of thing pot luck or some thing. Some people bring Hot dogs some smokies some hamburgers some potato salad ect....
Go to a park that would have to be in the summer thought.

Anyways it was great to have you guys out, as I said lots of out of towner's. I believe we will have more as this was a success, hope there will be more people next time and I know there will be more veriety. I hope to bring back some nice frags from Van between now and then...
