Frag Swap 2016 December

Recommended Posts

Well looks like there has been some interest in doing some corals exchanges so this calls for a good ole fashioned Frag Swap! Bring your mini cooler and maybe a frag or two of something nice you think some one else would like to trade for their tank. But also remember, as you may or may not know, the most productive trades are worked out prior to the actual meet. This way you know that there will be something you and the other member wants. Although it never hurts to bring extra right?

 

So here is a thread where people can use, or not use, to list the things they are willing to trade.

 

I will kick it off with a few things I have cut or can cut very easily.

Green Mosaic Rhodactis Shroom

 

SAM_4294_zpsagr2q7jp.jpg

 

Various types of Montiporas including this Candy Apple Capricornus.

 

And what do I like/want? I would say that  I am easy to please, if I don't have it I would be interested. I like all colors, origins, and especially all build/structures ;)

Beautiful stuff Robert! I would be interested in a piece of your fuego and twilight dragon! They would go nicely into the 180 rebuild :) I'll have some stuff for trade also and will add to this later!

Man Robert, those across and caps look fantastic.  I don't have anything to trade yet since the tank is just getting settled in but I will be doing a little drooling anyway...

Glad I joined this site.  I see many possibilities for adding variety to my beginner collection.  Just need to set up my larger tank.

And a few Firework/Magician palythoa's:

A small cooler! But it's only two hours so the bags shouldn't get too cold, I wouldn't worry to much. :)

I'm also looking for any last min trades! Looking for these zoas mostly but open to all bright zoas I don't have :)

King tut, Goblins Fire, golden Mauls, red speckled Krakatoa, gatorades, blue rhino, space monster, fire and ice, blue agave (or any agave type), God of War.

If you have something, I imagine we could work a trade out :)

Looks like I got a couple great swaps with BadxGillen and Paratore. I'm setting up a new tank in my office and I'm going mostly all softies as I'm trying to not give myself more work (at work). Although who knows how long it will be before I'm sneaking acros from gone to work....

 

Anyone else bringing some softies or zoas? I have some acros, birds nest, pocilliopora, and a couple millis I could trade. Let me know.

 

See everyone tomorrow!

"Some" acros? I'm going to go ahead and say that "some" is a bit of an understatement.

 

Selection is looking killer though, man!

      As mentioned in the September meeting thread the meet and greet at Moloko's would make an opportune place/time to have a frag swap so lets get one started here. These are the general guidelines I like to recommend for these coral exchanges.
      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. QT Aquariums are best but good old Revive, Coral RX, Melafix, Iodine, or Bayer will do much better at prevention than nothing.
      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 closing in fast, less than two weeks yeah. I believe Christian who runs the place will also be interested in doing some trades as well, I imagine he will post up in the forum here soon. 
      So Let's see em folks,  Whatcha Got!? Corals that is!

      As requested, a thread starter for a Frag Swap at our May 2018 Meeting at Golden Basket I used my own previous template, so if it looks familiar...It is.
       Being a meet and greet type of gathering it seems like it would be a good time to get the old coral trades going on.

      Personally I have a ton of things I can cut if someone wants to ask for a general type of coral. For now here is a picture of some sweet zoas I have to cut before they attach to something they shouldn't. And I will add some things here once I can go and grab some pictures that don't suck.
