View Full Version : VI frag swap


Gee

I had so much fun at the frag swap at Anthony's that I think we should do one here on the island. Maybe tentatively for the weekend after labor day weekend in Sept? I have plenty of room to host.

Thoughts?

I'd be interested. Looking to buy some SPS to replace those I lost. I have some Toadstools & Kenya Trees to give away to whoever wants them. Things grow like weeds.

Bummer! I was hoping someone's was growing, as mine is not looking too good after the fan incident.

Aww nuts. That was an awesome piece too. Did you send some off to Marie? Maybe you should, she'll have frags for all of us by September :razz:

I can't remember if she took one. I hope so. I know she took a piece of that rainbow Stylo. I lost that one too. :sad:

Once you set a date, I'll see if I can arrange a group from over on the LM to come to your event (reciprocating your efforts to come to ours:wink:)

Actually, I've been to at least a couple of VI reefer get togethers over the years & they've always been lots of fun. I would encourage anyone who can make it to do so.

I can probably bring a cooler of frags & if VI/Powll River reefers let me know ahead of time, I can also bring some supplies from the LFS if desired.

I took a piece of your green stylo.....don't think I got a frag of any yellow acro.

The rainbow stylo I got from snappy is trying to take over the tank....your welcome to a chunk of it

Yes sadly mine never survived either. Very strange and sad too because it was an awesome coral.

Oh, ok. I knew it was one of the stylos. As for the rainbow, I'd love a piece. Whenever you get around to fragging it give me a call.

I may need your help to frag it....stylophora is hard to frag at the best of times and this one is growing in a tight ball shape.

I've been putting off fragging it even though it's shading my pearlberry acro

Thats crazy, I thought your pearlberry was at the highest point on the rock (although you've moved the tank around since I saw it last). Lets see some close ups! :wink:

Hmm, I think we've hijacked this thread pretty good today, at least its keeping it at the top though :razz:

This would be my first get together with other reefers... (technicaly I'm not a reefer yet... but I may be by September)... I hope to have water in my set-up and be ready for a couple of frags... I'll be there even if I don't have my set-up up and running yet... but it would be nice to have a date and time set ASAP so I can book the day off. :D

I don't even have to book a time off... I can start on Sunday any time I want :D even at 11:59 pm or even Monday but it would make my Monday shift a long one cause they might run into each other :D I'll be there!
Also its a little bit later in the month so I should have my tank cycled and some fish in it already.

I have a minivan and would be willing to pick-up up to 5 people from the PR ferry and drive them to the thing and back (Depending on the time it starts and what the group from PR wants to do probably the first ferry 8:10 (would get us to Naniamo before 11:00 or the 12:00 would get us there at around 2:30-3:00 probably catch the last ferry home on the Sunday 7:15 we would have to leave by 5:30ish depending on the location in Naniamo).

Poor pearlberry, its just not growing nearly as fast as that stylo :razz: Crazy!! The piece from you, Marie, isn't a happy camper in my tank, it STNed some and has now totally browned out. I'm hoping it comes around soon :neutral:

Greenmaster
08-05-2010, 10:08 PM
I might not even be able to buy anything yet... I'm rushing my build so that I can get the water in soon but it looks like I'll be out by about 2 weeks... I'll still be there though.

Gee
08-08-2010, 02:43 AM
So this is a go? Not much has been said for over 2 weeks...

It's a go ... I've fragged a ton of zoa's including but not limited to boy scouts, cammiepallies, darth mauls, radio active dragon eyes, whammin watermelons, assorted blues, assorted greens. I have some branching green acro cut, some purple with green polyp acro, some green digi, some funky blue base with red and green polyp encrusting monti, I might have some sunset monti ready ... ummm, just going off the top of my head here, but ... superman monti ... limited deep water japenese zoa's as I just got them recently ... mmm, probably a lot more by then.

I'll have some styro boxes here ... also, John a local reefer will fire up a bbq and we'll have some beverages available. John will also have some of his frag racks here and he has a source for frozen uni (urchin eggs I believe) that will be available too.

PM me for my address and contact info, it could be one of the easiest houses to find in Nanaimo. I don't want to post the addy publicly though.

Everyone save your sun dances for that weekend ... :lol:

Lance

Looking forward to it. :biggrin: I love meeting other Canreefers!
I'll mostly be a buyer. Had a partial tank crash and am looking to replace some SPS and zoos.

Gee
08-10-2010, 09:32 PM
Took some shots today from my frag tank. I add a few frags every day. Note that lighting is pure 14k 250 hqi MH, no attinics so the blues will be better in most tanks ... hard to believe. You can check my photo bucket for more shots. Most all will be available at the swap, please don't message me now about frags, I will only reply to buying requests after the 12th of Sept. Don't worry ... clean up crew is going in tomorrow, guess the one tang can't keep up with the algae.

I'm not sure if you would want to put them in my tank as it is going to be very new... but that would be a possibility.

As for the pics they look awesome I'll probably buy some of the cheaper SPS when I am there. I don't want to get anything too costly... because it is most likely going to die anyways.

Well I was sure I was going till someone reminded me that I have volunteered to help with a dog show (my wife is in it) I tried to get out of it but it's too late to find a replacement... Maybe I will make it to the next one... on a side note I think I rushed my tank too much in prep for frags so I think it's good I have to take a step back.

I can pick you guys up from the Departure Bay ferry, you might have to find a ride back to the ferry after though.

I'll have frag(s) of:

Pink pocilipora damicornis
Greeny yellow birdsnest (I think S. caliendrum)
Pipe organ
Pink birdsnest with green tipped polyps (kind of irridescenty)
Piece of A. turaki
Green digitata
Supposed to be blue digitata but is brown right now (its a bit of a crabby bugger)

thats all off the top of my head, there might be more but my motivation levels are at an all time low.

Chaloupa
09-09-2010, 05:27 AM
I'll be there as a seller and possibly buyer......

I will have some colonies and some frags..but mostly small colonies as I'm planning to do the tank switch over next month and don't want to risk trying to move these to a very new and fairly unstable setup..will just keep a small piece of each to grow out again.

Will post some pics after the camera is charged...but will have (if interest is shown);

LARGE colony of Bubblegum Acro
Medium colony of Snappy's Shag Carpet
LARGE colony of Blue Tenuis I believe....someone correct me when you see the pic
HUGE frag of Purple Cross
Colony of Blue Mille
Medium colony of Green Acro (technical eh?)
Medium colony of Snappy's Deep Purple Valida
LARGE frag or small colony of Snappy's Yellow Purple Polyp Acropora Austera
1 frag of Snappy's Killer "Special-K" Cerealis
Frags of this very cool colony that I have no idea what it is...but it's a blue green acro and it grows well...(another technical name)
And more...just have to look harder at the tank!

Gee
09-09-2010, 05:53 AM
Lots of PMs .... should be a good turn out. On a side note, my tank in the last couple of day went meh, some corals dead ... not sure what happened. But this means more real estate, lol.

RipTide,

If we do go, you can meet at my place in Burnaby and we all carpool to the ferry terminal together & back. I may be also able to hold your purchases for you in one of my tanks during your vacation.

SeaHorse Fanatic I might take you up on the offer for babysitting if it's still there...

Gee still waiting for an address....when you get the chance:wink:

Not sure about frags from me, just got home and my green S. caliendrum has partially RTNed and about half looks like the polyps are mush. I just fragged the crap out of it to try to save it. As well my pink P. damicornis and pink birdsnest are not happy campers. Not sure what is going on in the tank, things looked fine at 11am but something is up. :neutral:

Blue Mille $50.00 (sorry the glass isn't clean but the coral reaches the glass

You bet, will do!

So Purple Valida is sold......the rest are still up for grabs.

The blue on the mille is really really hard to catch...it's very blue with purple tips and the colony is large, my picture just sucks. The Bubblegum is very very very large. There has been some die off on the bottom as it get's absolutely no light due to the coral being so large. The rest are all in good shape, healthy, the Birdsnest has had a bit of a time...it was broken off the rock it was on, moved it into better flow and it's done beautifully!

$20 or trade for some high end zoa frags, I still looking for a good size piece of bright orange digi, and a nice little Monti cap, and a small bright pink birds nest


So Ive never been to a frag swap before.. I'm thinking Since I have so many diff colors of ric's I would put them on a rack and take a picture.. Then number them, putting the number on the bag. Then we could look at the pic on photo bucket with a laptop or Iphone???

Took some shots today from my frag tank. I add a few frags every day. Note that lighting is pure 14k 250 hqi MH, no attinics so the blues will be better in most tanks ... hard to believe. You can check my photo bucket for more shots. Most all will be available at the swap, please don't message me now about frags, I will only reply to buying requests after the 12th of Sept. Don't worry ... clean up crew is going in tomorrow, guess the one tang can't keep up with the algae.

Sorry y'all but my injuries sustained when I crashed on the tile flooring during the 220g tank breakage is acting up with this cold, damp weather & I'm in no condition to make a ferry trip over to VI to join everyone on Sunday. This totally sucks but if I go, I'm sure it'll mean I'll be lots of pain and will set back my full recovery by several days, if not longer. Not worth the extra wasted time. Better to stay in bed & rest & hope things get better sooner rather than later.

(PS: first time ever that I'm feeling my age & "old")

These types of injuries used to go away after a day or so. Not so much nowadays. Hate not being 20 any more:cry:

Have fun everybody. This will be the first VI get together I've missed so I'm pretty bummed out.

For the reefer from AB, if you want, you can still leave your purchases in my tank. Just drop them off at my place in Burnaby when you get back. My cell number is 604-868-5553.

i'm in I think, is my birthday the 12th, so have to se how to fit it in.

in worst case I would put up what I'm locking for/ i have, and maybe somone can shop for me (prepaid)

depends if i can go or not

so now the day has come, and unfortunatly, the planning dous not alow me to visit the FS.

whit this in mind, I ask you all to considder a new FS in the beginning of next year, lets say the end of february ore so.

I will open my door to any that wants to drop in, and depending on the wether, we can still do a BBQ ore something.

this way it gives everyone about 5 months to frag,

we can even combine it with a yard sale for aquarium related things


as long as we have fun.

sorry I cant attedn this one, hope we can set something up for beginning of next year at our place (Langford, Vic)
