Looking forward to more details about this.

The London Frag Fest was a huge success this weekend.

It would be great to set something up just like it in Toronto. :)

Don't be jealous - come to Toronto for Toronto Frags :)
Too bad you're so far!

A quick note:
The first 100 people who pay for their tickets to Toronto Frags will receive 5 raffle tickets. Though most of the prizes still have not been posted, they already include an ecotech pump, salt, designer palys and a cadlights 8g pico.

Next weekend (October 5th) is the biggest frags show to hit Canada since the original MACNA!!
Will anyone from Canreef be attending?
If you missed MACNA this year this is an amazing opportunity for you. Actually even if you attended MACNA this year you couldnt bring anything home anyways.... so this is still an amazing opportunity for you!! :)



Reef Wholesale is proud to be this amazing frags shows Sponsor and will be offering some great raffle prizes for those that do attend.



There will be all the major stores from all across SW ontario and there will be more frags vendors than you can shake a stick at!!
So if you want to have a great weekend and see the best corals in Canada dont miss this event!

I will of course be bringing some of my own personal collection for corals. These will be for display/drool purposes only :P



Here is a pic of one of our smaller mother colonies that we will be bringing to the show.
Sorry but I doubt any of these frags will be available through a retailer at the show. We sold all our frags that we made so far and have not had a chance to cut any more pieces. Maybe if we can make a few frags today or tomorrow....

This was a stellar event, congrats to Margaret, the sponsors and vendors. A special thanks to Reef Wholesale for the MP40 I won amongst other things :mrgreen:

@reefwholesale: i'm interested in finding out about the tiny ReefBright LED you had at the bottom of the display board.

You won the MP40? SWEET!!!!

We have the small reefbrite on demo that you can check out. It's the 50/50 version. We were planning to use it on our 6g Fluval edge nano.

Yes I did, i cleaned up the raffle prizes again at this show lol. I currently am using a 12"reefbright for a sump light (lol i know overkill) and it grows Cheato and Coraline like crazy. I'm planning camping out with Taipan for opening day anyway :razz:

Interesting....how there's a TD Canada Trust within crawling distance from the store. Coincidence? I think not. ;)

For the record; I purchased my tickets last minute when "last call" was made over the speaker system. Since proceeds were going to charity, I bought a nice stack. I randomly put my tickets into boxes as the deadline was approaching. Before conspiracy theorists go overtime....please read below. http://www.gtaaquaria.com/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif lol

My haul from the raffle:

2 x $50 Gift Certificates from Aquatic Kingdom - Of which I gladly redistributed to fellow reefers close by. I won't be personally using them. Daniel and staff have always treated me well; so I thought I would re-distribute the "love"and send in other customers. For the record; most GTA LFS, if not all have treated me very well. I'm sure most LFS are tired of seeing me. http://www.gtaaquaria.com/forum/images/smilies/eek.gif

From Two Little Fishies and Reef Wholesale, a reef-care package composed of:
~ Julian's Thing
~ Veggie Mag
~ AcroPower Amino Acid Formula for SPS Corals 500 mL
~ NPX Bioplastics
~ PhosBan 150g

From Two Little Fishies and Reef Wholesale, a nano reef-care package composed of:
~ Julian's Thing
~ Nano Mag
~ AquaStik 4oz. red

I already have "Julian's Thing" - insert joke here ___________ . I LOVE "Julian's Thing" - insert 2nd joke here __________ . I have already given 1 out and will be giving the other out later to promote the product and Reef Wholesale. http://www.gtaaquaria.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif The magnets and Aquastik (epoxy) I may have duplicates of in my basement....I'll probably hand those out too. http://www.gtaaquaria.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif

I'm curious to compare the AcroPower to my current Aquavitro Fuel. I'm keeping the NPX Bio Plastics to compare with my current Nitra-Guard Biocubes, and the PhosBan with my RowaPhos. http://www.gtaaquaria.com/forum/images/smilies/cool.gif

Flavio from Advanced Reef Aquatics kindly "hooked me up" with a brand spanking new Vertex 100 GPD with Booster Pump......"yes".....I paid for this item. lol

The only piece that I walked away with (since I'm upgrading) was a very nice Sunset Mille from MJC.....and before anyone asks...."yes"....I paid for that piece as well. Thanks guys.

In fact; it was BITTER-sweet for the Aussie pieces R2O Aquariums was selling on my behalf. I miss those pieces already. Sad; I know. lol Ryan pointed out that the Aussie Orange Frogspawn I was selling.....was in fact an Aussie Orange Octobubble. I made a nice dent in the concrete wall after banging my head against it for a while - at least it went to a good home. A big "Thank-you" to a fellow forum member for offering to babysit my trophy brain. http://www.gtaaquaria.com/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif Enjoy your mini-donut coral.

Hey now that was our little secret! As for my daughter being lucky, it would seem it runs in the family... Remember I was solo at the Vaughn show..If you guys want, I'll bring my wife to the next one and we will sweep the entire raffle table :razz:
