December 2018 Frag Swap Thread

Recommended Posts

As mentioned in the December meeting thread the holiday party 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.

So Let's see em folks,  Whatcha Got!? Corals that is!

Looking for dragon soul favia, the classic color pattern. Would like a few eyes. Upscales fixed me up!

Long shot, but fruit loops zoas? I haven’t seen them in ages and don’t even know what they go for anymore, but they were always a fave of mine.  Golden Basket to the rescue! 

$ for trade, because I don’t have enough healthy corals right now to frag/trade anything. Recently moved and had multiple things go wrong; long story short, killed some corals and made the ones that lived very mad. My tank is in recovery mode.

i have a ton of zoas but i cant make it to the event :(

Jeremy i have red planet and a short cake. they just started really growing so i will put you on the list.

I also owe our prez mr. xgillen for his graciousness at the last meeting. You will have to make it over and see if there is anything you covet. Of course the really nice stuff is taking fo' ever to grow. The acid trip milli is spectacular but it super finicky. Same with the short cake. the colors are amazing but it certainly does like to stop growing.

Anyways, always great to see people sharing. I feel at times people get so caught up in the latest named coral they see dollar signs and hord things. We are really really lucky to have a club like this!!

cheers

I am in Salem nowadays, and have frags of Sunny D’s, Blue Agave’s (or seductions, or white zombies, or whatever else they are called these days), and some ones I forgot the name of (but are pretty cool IMO). Can get a few frags of each. 

 

Open to trades for some corals. Lps, blastos, gold torch, plate corals, other non-SPS coral.

my pictures are bad, I can try to snap some better ones if anyone has interest.

I'm looking for WWC RED Shortcake, Pink Lemonade, Ricordea florida, blastos, and bright colored shrooms (game over, candy crush, those sort of things).

I have some jawbreaker babies to trade, they're still small but were naturally split (not cut). I have some zoas too, I'll try to get some pics.

My sps apocalypse in parrotfish form has ended.  Anyone got some easy one's they'd like to trade for $dollars$?  Stags/spongodes/monti cap/digi/birdsnest type things would be great.  I just need to repopulate the top of my arch where I took the most damage.  It's weird because I had several acro's make it through all this but lost every single easy sps.  Guess they didn't like their flesh being forcibly stripped off by that beak lol.  😥

I can cut you a chunk of neon green birdsnest if you want?

I appreciate it but my green birdsnest was one of the very few things that made it.

      Where does the time go? It is February already, and that means there is another upcoming PNWMAS meet. This time we have something special for you, our comedic and ingenuitive member PDXMonkeyboy has been gracious enough to host a full blown frag swap at his home in Portland Oregon! In addition to the free for all coral exchanging we will have a tank onsite to float frags and a coral sale to benefit the Tanks For Teachers program.
      This means there will be corals of all sorts, from all over, at one place! for trade, for sale, and even maybe just for free if you get that winning raffle ticket. This also means you all might want to get ready for the event by seeing what you may have to offer up and what you may be looking for to fill that empty spot in your home aquarium. I will post up one of those ever so popular Frag Trading threads here
      http://www.pnwmas.org/forums/topic/44400-frag-swap-thread-february-2019/
      so we can keep this thread to our regular banter and various updates as they come through.
      When- February 24th 1:00 PM.
      Where- Portland Oregon 917 SW palatine street
      Parking:  There is a long looping driveway and a parking area next to the house.  You can park in the street or anywhere in the driveway.  There will likely just be shuffling when its time to go.
      Our PNWMAS club will provide some refreshments and some delectable local pizza for those who attend.  

      So get those frag racks out and filled up then stay tuned, this is gonna be a good one!

      This February meet at PDXMonkeyboy's is going to be a full blown free for all frag swap, so those attending are encouraged to get some corals ready to trade in anticipation of the event. These are the general guidelines I like to recommend for these coral exchanges.
