Does anyone have a Red Planet frag they'd like to trade me?  I've got quite a few different things I can offer for it.  Let me know!

Bert you're the MAN!  Thank you very much!  Want to just call that square with the Jack-O-Lantern?

Well shoot, I already cut you some of that TECO Birds Of Paradise, and some Tierra for the Jack. I will still get you the Red Planet though.

Ah, well I'd happily pay cash or I have more Oregon Mummy Eye if you'd like.  Still could do some cinnamon grandis if you didn't end up getting those last month? There's maybe others.  I need to take a picture of my frag tank.

Hi, I'm new to reefing so don't have any frags that I can trade but do members take cash for their frags?  It's just cost too much to buy online or store and every reefing forum tells me the local frag swap is the way to go to get started in reefing without paying the retail $$$ :nutty: and having to sell my kidney :dejection:  to the black market.   Any advice or info will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

If your just starting out I am sure I can bring you a frag or two of something easy to get you going. Are you already past the cycle and have livestock already?

Yes we are always open to selling :) just shoot them a PM with what you like and they will let you know how much! And if you weren't sure what a coral is called, just screenshot their pictures and include those in your message.

I'll give you some free xenia if you want any! I'm located in the forest grove area unfortunately I can't make the meeting this time but if you're ever in my area let me know. I'm sure I could throw in some others too

Anyone somewhat close to me (forest grove area) have any green Ricordias, rainbow bubble tip, green bubble tip for sale or trade? Also still on the lookout for the elusive Dendro lol. I don't really have a big selection of corals to trade at the moment, I have hammer coral pink and green/brown (trade only not for sale) toadstools, blue/green mushrooms, green hairy mushrooms, xenia, green Palythoas l, yellow button polyps, green/brown monti cap, some green zoas and anthelia.

Hey all - I am just starting from scratch so have nothing for trade but if anyone has unclaimed frags they might want to part with let me know. I am planning to be there and looking to start introducing coral into the tank. It's been up and running for 4 months or more now and Ca-reactor is online, refugium back online (now that the leak is fixed) and coraline algae spreading rapidly so figure it's time to take the leap. There is a small colony of eagle eye zoas that came on a piece of starter rock from Scott that have been going since almost the start of the build so at least I know I can keep something alive!

 

Thanks!

Any types you are particularly fond of? I am sure I can throw together a small tank warming pack before the meeting.

Hey Bert - that would be super cool.  I have always been partial to all types of SPS but honestly am not that picky.  Never had any of the "designer" corals in my mixed reefs before - just picked things based on variety of color and shape.  Probably the most high-end piece I ever had was some Oregon Tort from Souta's.  Just to give you some context, acans and scolis were just starting to become a thing when I had to tear my last tank down! Yeah, I'm dating myself here...

Sean, how about some red monti cap and ora green apple birdsnest? Both super easy. Could probably bring some purple digi too if you'd like.

You got it!

Was that the only zoa on that rock? Let me know I have a few different ones on plugs and can bring a few for you. I may have a chunk of forest fire digi also.

I could bring you a nice tricolor frag Sean. I don't have much sps but it's a nice little frag.

That would be sweet Kim! I am more than happy to have anything you are willing to offer.

Hi Scott - yeah, it is all eagle eye on that rock. They have been spreading a bit so if you ever need any back you know where you can get them! I would be thrilled with anything you want to part with. Never used to keep a lot of zoos (although had some cool blues ones) but have really enjoyed these. Thanks!

      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!

      What do we have for September gatherings you ask? Well, it has been a while since we made it up to North Mississippi  to visit our friends at Moloko's so we decided to have a casual meet and greet at this sponsors awesome reef themed pub. If you have not been there you are missing out on a very unique establishment. This will be a perfect mingling opportunity prior to next months upcoming big Frag Fest event. We can chill out, relax, and talk salt or just get to know each other more... A far cry from the hustle and bustle of the Expos.
       Being a meet and greet situation I think it would make sense to get a frag swap going on, I know many of us have some corals to trim and being two weeks away it makes for an ideal heal time on any of those fresh cuts. And since the shindig doesn't start until 4 it will give us a chance to shop at some of the Portland area saltwater stores prior, so bring a small cooler.
      The address is-- 3967 N Mississippi Ave, Portland, OR 97227
      Starts at 4:00PM until 6:00PM or whenever you want to go home on Saturday the 29th, they have a full service bar as well as some nice panini sandwiches amongst other edibles to choose from.

      May 2018 meet was another over the top meeting for the PNWMAS. For those who could not make it you missed out on a great event. 
      Rudy at The Golden Basket hosted the May gathering and did Great, his family works together seamlessly and handled the clubs needs without a hitch. And Kim, Siirena, Scott, and Saun did an amazing job of coordinating, cooking, and setting up all of this. Wonderful people right here! 

      Kim an Sirena in this pic getting all the kinks worked out before anyone even got there, this is an amazing couple right here. Emerald is ready with tickets for raffles in hand and in the background Sirena is making sure the margarita machine is ready to go...

      And Yes, You heard that right, margarita MACHINE! One side was for the virgin blue raspberry slushy mix and the left was for the real deal margarita with tequila. This is the first "meeting" I have been to that had a margarita machine to dispense beverages.

      Chef Scott helped Sirena by making a few things at home and maning the grill like he does so well. That marinated skirt steak was tasty stuff, never would have guessed there was soy sauce involved.

      Albertareebt  in and setup a whole sound system for music along with a mini amp for the speakers and raffles. As you all know Saun is a stand up guy, always willing to pitch in here and there.

      I had to include as much vertical as I could on a couple pictures here, not only to show off our OSU Beavers tent, but to take notice of the amazingly beautiful clear and sunny day we had. Several people had enough forethought to bring camping chairs to sit down outside and enjoy the sunny weather.

      Like Lewisfisherman here, polarized shades are not a bad idea today...You might still need them once you go inside and see some of the amazing corals. I know you found a few bright gems in Rudy's shop.

      Mark and Exodus having a conversation right before things got started, there were several early birds who were more than willing to be of assistance where needed like these two. Both are seasoned veterans in the salt water hobby.

      Eclipse on a sunny day!? Good to see you, glad you found a little time to come out and hang with the PNWMAS crew.

      As usual, once inside you see Rudy and his team just working away, move em in and move em out. These guys are either taking pictures or bagging corals, not a bad gig if you ask me.

      Pantherguy, stopping in for a little bit. This guy has some insanely colored corals if you ever get a chance to snag a frag from him I highly recommend it.

      BAAHHH!!! Its OptimusPrime rolling in with the cooler in hand, full of goodies no doubt. Sounds like you might need to setup an anemone containment tank, I have that other bubble tip for you next time we meet up.

      Maxicurls here is a guy I haven't seen for a while, maybe we should make one of those impromptu Molokos meets and see whats in the reef tanks by the bar, while eating my panini.

      PDXMnkey aand Albertareef talking about financial changes in the market and effects on consumers, alot has changed in the last few years that's for sure, I think it is great when things become more available and affordable. Win win for a guy like me.

      Did someone call for, the Zorro!? Whenever there is a reefer in trouble he is there, and whenever there is a must have high end Acro, he will have it. No trouble here,except trying to pick only ONE must have high end acros at Rudy's...I went with the Olympic Torch but really there is no wrong choice.

      Tesch here for another round of PNWMS meeting fun! We are one big coral reef family here at our Marine Aquarium Society with everyone on the same page of reefing. Hit me up sometimes if you want to do some trading man, I always have something that needs a trim.

      Youcallmenny conversing with PDXreefer front left, in the back ground we have Albertareef laughing on the left, FlashyFins and Princeton talking with the Sasquatch center background, and Ken on the right.

      Sharklover and DarkAngel didn't miss out on the festivities, so many cool corals and cool people this was certainly the happening place to be this last Saturday.

      Was nice to meet a couple folks I had not seen before. Thanks Saltedwaffles for the zoa frags, hope the chalice works out for you, just let me know if it gives you any trouble and I will see what I can do.

      Jeremevans and his future reef enthusiast.  hope you two are ready for a talk, because the PNWMAS Board chose a few members to act as a panel to answer some SPS focused questions. 

      We missed you Roy, but Rudy and I tried to manage without you, we covered a lot of ground in a short time so I hope some of the audience was able to use at least some of the information spoken. For those of you who missed it Roy answered a few questions right here.  http://www.pnwmas.org/forums/topic/43136-what-sps-questions-do-you-have/?page=2
       

      We even had Danlu speak about lighting wavelengths and LED diodes which can shed some "Light" on aspects of coral colors and growth. Recurrent flicker of %100 strength diodes to solve wavelength issues seems totally sound. If you want to talk about lights this guy knows a thing or two for sure.
      After the presentation was done we moved onto the next event...The Raffles!
      Get Your Tickets!!!

      Just look at all these prizes! I don't know how we pull together so much good stuff for these raffles but alot of it has to do with our amazing group of officers and our generous sponsors, Thanks You Guys and Gals!

      Patiently waiting with tickets for the ensuing raffle. Back left R-3, front right ReefRun, and behind right we have Walt.

      Damien taking home one of the LED units, Whoop Whoop!!! Solid units right there man, nice score.

      FlashyFins taking home the Upscalees Certificate here. Show me the Money!

      Spectra coming in for the win! This guy most certainly deserves it, he has always been very generous as well as being a helpful hand when he can, Scotts a good man.

      Lora and SRoberts took home not only the other LED unit but also a pass to the upcoming MACNA event. Talk about a lucky day!

      At the end of it all we had all the helping hands we needed to take it down and wrap it up, you could call this team work or comradery , either way I love this crew.

      Sirena and Kim loading the truck to the brim Ike they have done this before, these two are real troopers, excellent job ladies, excellent job.
      So that was our Awesome May 2018 meeting. Another one for the records, a most outstanding meet if I do say so myself. The feeling of community was really there, the laughing, the trading, the conversing, and all round good times.
      Thank You GoldenBasket, Thank You Emerald, Thank You Sirena, Thank You Spectra, Thank You Albertareef. you ALL made this one special and one to remember. And thanks to our PNWMS Crew, you make this forum go round, keep it real y'all...See you next month at the MHSC yeah!
      Reef On!!!
