Hello reefers,

I was thinking about hosting another frag swap for the Lower mainland area for the last weekend of 25/26 or 31/1. I think Sunday might be better for all of us unless if you are religious. I will be hosting it at my house which is a 5 minutes away from JL aquatics. I would need some input to solidify the date to accommodate everyone so please let me know. Everyone is welcome of course so please don't be shy and come on down to meet everyone who shares your passion even if you don't have anything to trade.

Okay guys, so the date has been set for September 1st 2013 (Sunday). It will start at 11:00 am and go till 5:00 pm or later. I will approach some of the local shops (by shops I mean JL) to see if anyone will step up and throwing in some prizes. We want to make this fun and exciting for everyone, doesn't matter if you are a newbie or a seasoned veteran, everyone is welcome. I will have some refreshments and snacks plus the BBQ will be on stand by just in case some of you want to bring some burgers or hot dogs. For all you island guys I will make sure I'll have that bottle of Hennessy ready. I don't want any EXCUSES BRAD!

PM me for my contact info and address. Hope to see you all there.

I would like to make it, but can't say for sure at this time. It is the Sept long weekend, and we are often at our cabin then. But we'll see... If the weather is crappy, might be home instead.

During the summer, my tanks are mostly on auto pilot, but if/when I get a chance, have some corals that are ready for fragging. And always looking for some new ones...

Haven't been to a frag swap before, so pardon this stupid question. But when people bring frags, should they be mounted on plugs, or is it OK, just to snip off a branch (SPS) and all in separate bags? I can post/bring pics of the mother colonies.

Bblinks
07-25-2013, 04:37 PM
Which ever colony you would like to sell, it would be better if you post it on this thread and see if there is any interest. No point cutting when there is no interest.

Reef Pilot
07-25-2013, 05:23 PM
Yeah, would certainly post them here first. But wasn't sure if people preferred the frags on plugs. Myself, I now just break off any SPS that comes on a plug before dipping to help ensure no bugs or eggs.

I am going to have to do some fragging anyway, as I have some corals encroaching on each other, and some are cutting out light for others.

Do you bring the frags in bags and swap/sell or there is a tank to display them in?

I was told to take pictures of the mother colony that you are fragging off while they are fully open and happy. When you bring them to the meet in a bag they will be unhappy and closed probably, so you can show the pictures of what you have, I took pictures with my phone camera and they come out pretty good. I'm bringing various zoes and mushrooms.

Rich lives near J&L (pm him for exact address).

Sunday, Sept. 1

He'll finalize start time and duration.

Its a swap, sell, buy, meet with fellow reefers-type of event.

Bag everything. Clearly label with name, colour, and price. In the bag, corals will not be happy so pics on your cell phone or digital camera to show what it looks like open and happy can help with a sale. Zoas closed up won't show what colour they are so labelling that info on the bag is also helpful.

Hi,
I am new to Victoria but have been in the hobby for a long time and would like to attend the frag-swap that is being held in Vancouver on the 1st of September.
I would like to car-pool with someone who is going for the day to the swap and of course would contribute to the trip expense. If there is someone going from Victoria and has room for one more, I would greatly appreciate it.
Please PM me with info.

Thank you, Jeff & JL, other donators & especially Rich for hosting and organizing this event. Looking forward to it.

BBQ & propane tank ready to go. Got some wieners and buns to cook up. May bring some other food as well.

In terms of frags, will have Purple Valida, green Aussie Duncans, some zoas, and maybe some softies (mushrooms and kenyan tree).

It was a couple inches across, but right now it's only about 3/4"

Unfortunately I am going to have to miss this one. Heading to the cabin this morning as we have friends coming out for the weekend. It sure sounds like a great get together and with all of the out of towners coming in, too. And of course another chance to see Rich's tank. <sigh>

While I do have a few frags I could sell/trade, am really interested in getting more acros, especially some of the fancy ones. Don't know if anyone has these frags, but am looking for a red dragon acro and/or a red acro. Also some of the other fancy ones like pearlberry, strawberry shortcake, etc. I even made extra room in my tank...

Well, to be fair, since I can't be there, preference should be given to others, and especially to anyone from out of town... But if there are any left over, for sure, I will take them... At worst, since acros do grow,... should be some frags again sooner or later of these.

So I have never been to one of these events & looking forward to it . I was going to bring a couple small frags : a green birdsnest & red/orange digi . If anyone is interested .
Sounds like this event might be getting quite a few people . I keep thinking of the movie "Project X".
Should I bring my own chair or anything ?
Is there going to be a list that people can sign in on & list there corals for trade/sale ? Just to help people find homes for their frags .
Thanks Rich for putting on this event & see ya tomorrow .
