I was thinking of hosting a frag swap in late August or early September, depending upon interest. I am in central Nanaimo and can pick people up and drop them off at the Departure Bay Ferry if anyone from the mainland wants to come over. I will post my contact info here for future reference...

I'm totally in!


Do we have to bring stuff or can we just come and get stuff? :)

Fragswaps are usually pretty open to people with frags to sell, those who are just buyers, and to traders, as well as people just wanting to meet up with other reefers. In other words, anybody.

Wow, it'll be a long drive. But for a frag swap I'm sure I can make it 4 blocks down the road.

Late August works for me too. Everyone is welcome, no need to buy or sell, you can just come by and chat :). I will post some pics of the wares over the next few days... Suggestions on a date?

Alberta! I'll get you to bring me a bottle of Old Pulteney ;) can't find it in BC! You are welcome to drop by anytime if you happen to be out this way :). No need for an 'official' frag swap.

The 25th is my brothers wedding, but........What's more important?????? Frag swap right???????? right?????? Someone help me out here!!!!! Anyone????? Why would anyone plan a wedding on a day there might be a frag swap????? I don't understand what he was thinking.

Oh damn it!!! I guess the 25th is out for me. I better go to the wedding but if it's the 26th I can make both.

Looks like the 25th is no good for me too but the 26th works...

Let's set the date for the 26th, time from 1-4pm, and pickups/dropoffs to the Departure Bay ferry are available if anyone wants to come over from the mainland.

Either day works for me. I wont be bringing any frags tho, they are going to be huge friggin' colonies!!! I need to do some major trimming, the poor fish are running out of room.

Will anyone need picking up from the ferry? I am just in Oregon right now en route to California, and might be checking out some LFS here. Might have a hard time looking and not buying:)

I think I might come by for a bit... I've never been to a frag swap. I don't have any frags to trade, but I just set up my tank again recently and its ready for a few frags. I would love to get some soft corals if anyone has some. I'll take just about anything... xenia, colts, kenya tree, yellow polyps, clove polyps, GSP, green metalic mushrooms...

as you can se

http://www.canreef.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?threadid=88918

all empty,

all rock and 50% of the water was just swapped from the frag / sump tank I had made, so it should be safe to put some frags in.

ohh, and if you are in for a frag tank, ore sump, i can bring it !

I didn't think I had anything anyone really wanted but jon.smolders wants some Xenia. Anyone else? I've got lots I can bring :)

Well it looks like I am going to have to work on the 26th which is too bad because I really need to do some serious pruning.

Here's a couple pics of what I may be able to bring if anyone's interested. I've never fragged anything before so some pointers would have to be had beforehand :(

My pulsing Xenia, those under the 20K side are much lighter than those on the 14K side. The ones on the 14K side are very easy to get.

Some loose paly's - I have lots of these as well:

A Poccillopora (I think) that I inherited. Pic of the colony:

And some kind of purple tipped acro, not sure exactly what it's called but any help in ID would be welcome

Kevin

Ahhh, that's who's wife was running around getting stuff, lol. Mine won't come near a frag swap. :D
Hope you enjoy the Xenia! Make sure you place it up high and not next to another rock unless you want it to spread. It was 4" below the surface of my tank with a 250W MH right above it, so it'll handle the light. If you have a bit of current and the main stalk leans onto something it'll split and grow another branch on what it was leaning against.

Thanks Dan for opening up your home and letting us snoop :)
You'll totally have to come over to my place and give me fragging lessons soon, I've got a torch that's out growing my tank.

It was awesome meeting everyone and visiting with everyone. It was great Bblinks could make it from the main land.
Can't wait 'till the next one.... hopefully my 210 will be up and running and in need of stocking :D
