I'm thinking about getting some magnetic frag plugs, I have two diy ones now, I took the magnets off some old powerheads I had that don't work anymore and covered them in epoxy and let it dry. Then I glued some zoas on them, it worked great but I think a few real ones would be nice because I'd like to try some monti cap on the glass. So does anyone know of a good place to get any, even a good place online that sells them (preferably without a crazy shipping fee) and what they usually sell them for? Or if anyone has any they want to sell or trade for, or any old powerheads laying around with magnets that would be great too! I'm sure I could give you a couple $ or frag or something. Any advice would be awesome!
Some of you may have heard that the May meeting coming up is being held at the North West Aquatics breeding facility in Tangent Oregon.
In addition to the presentation, tour, and raffle there will be another one of those fine frag swaps we put on every few months. Colby, who runs the facility, has mentioned he could facilitate our club with some electricity and some water, so we figured why not setup the small frag tank for the swap. Miles and I will be bringing in a setup to keep your corals fresh and looking good for those of you who want to do your trading out of the bag.
If you would like, you can do your trading on the fly by just bringing by a few pieces and hoping that some one will have a desirable coral you want...Or better yet, you can post up what you have to trade and work out a preemptive exchange here on the forums, that method always works best for me. You can feel free to use this thread to post your trade-ables in or start a thread of your own.
But First, let me get you some of Bert's basis tips for success here.
1.) make an attempt to have a fragment of reasonable size and health and try and get things cut and ready a few days to a week ahead of time to have the wounds healed up for the exchange. And double/triple check for pest invertebrates or algaes before sending your corals out, we try to keep invasives to a minimum here...And once you get your frags home, just in case, always acclimate the specimens then dip the corals before you put them into your personal aquarium.
2.) Try to package your corals appropriately. This can mean not putting a spiny coral like birds nest into a thin dollar store bag or not utilizing insulation on an extended cold or warm trip. Try a small cooler or Styrofoam. If you can't find either of these and the destination is a long distance, keep the vehicle air conditioned or heated appropriately. As far as packaging goes you can double bag and use thicker mil plastics, or something else like a Tupperware or specimen container. I have even used washed out yogurt or cottage cheese containers that stack well inside the coolers. Just use something that will work, nothing like losing a nice and colorful animal because the bag got too cold and leaked all the water out on the way home.
3.)Do your best to be courteous and fair to one another by not take advantage of each others ignorance or generosity. These are people of all levels in the hobby so give them the benefit of your knowledge and experience instead of the cold shoulder. And speaking of generosity, that giving nature has always been smiled upon here at PNWMAS and pay it forward tends comes back around these parts.
Well, the meeting is only two weeks away so we got to get the ball rolling people,
I'll get us started.
