We would like to see some of the Calgary Crowd down here. Any chance some of you going to make the trip? Perhaps a car pool?

There will be tables there for everyone that needs them. If you are bringing anything requiring power please remember to bring an extenson cord and a power bar if needed. Anybody needing to get there early to set up pm myself, whiteclown, theshark or trabby and they can help you figure out a plan.
I might have a little spare space if someone wanted to display a couple frags but otherwise everyone that wants to display frags for trade or sale is reponsible for their own setup.
If a setup is Impractical to bring I have found that bringing a picture of the coral works just as good and the coral can stay bagged up.

Hey Larry which colony is this from?

cuz
01-25-2012, 01:19 AM
fresh frag courtesy of "El' Mata the putz" during nori time last night.....
Came off this piece, I believe its a prostrata, red/pink base with blue polyps and blue new growth..

http://i670.photobucket.com/albums/vv69/scuzzycuzzy/new%20tank/046.jpg

Its the piece in the upper right hand of this pic

SteveConn
01-25-2012, 02:07 AM
I could probably frag:
Flower pedal monti cap, pink monti cap and a few spongodes (or digi?) (rust polyp with green base and green polyp with cream colored base). I also have a med sized colony of birdsnest (pink base and blue polyps..browned out currently under bad lighting) I have collected a LOT of frags since the summer when I started this. Once I move the ghetto tank and two nanos to the bigger tank in a week or two, I will likely have frags to sell.
I have a few small colonies of wild coral I bought from a local guy that I have managed to keep. They're coming back nicely. I could possibly frag a few of those.
If I can come down, I'll take some pics.

Flower Pedal Monti is green with blue polyps right?

SteveConn
01-25-2012, 09:19 PM
The monti is more of a cream/blue with blue polyps.

Very nice corals cuz! I'd be interested in the green blasto and the prostata frag courtesy of El Mata!

SteveConn
01-26-2012, 03:06 AM
Hey Ryan,
I bought a lot of this guys frags. The monti is the one he posted a pic of. I have to tell you though, the colour hasnt come back yet because it is in a ghetto tank ( Rubbermaid... I ran out of room in my TWO nanos!) with crappy lighting while I wait to pick up my new tank (Saturday!!!). It's alive, but browned. I'm hoping it will look great again after being in the new tank and under the radions :-)
EDIT: I just realized I bought the scrolling monti AND the flower pedal from this guy. Had the colors mixed up

SteveConn
01-26-2012, 03:18 AM
A swap would be better if you have stuff to trade...and I think you have some pretty nice stuff. Still new to SW, so gathering up anything that's interesting. I have some cool looking wild/uncultured corals that I may frag.
Funny that I have had more luck with SPS than softies or even fish :-/

Ryan
01-26-2012, 03:20 AM
I lost most of my colonies in the transfer. I am rebuilding my stock.

All I have left that are big enough are the A. Lovelli, Blue Polyp A. austera, and my Pokerstar Monti.

SteveConn
01-26-2012, 03:36 AM
Yikes, sorry to hear that!! I will be moving in a couple years. The thought of THAT transfer already makes me nervous!

I amabout to do a tank transfer this weekend too.

I'd be interested in what you can frag...

I'll try to post pics of what I can frag to see if there's interest

SteveConn
01-26-2012, 04:20 AM
Things I could frag (and ID too!! :redface::lol:) Bought the uncultured corals from a local here. Still had the cites tags on them. First one seems to be the most touchy
