The January PNWMAS meeting is coming up, and as you may or may not know, we are rocking the first new year bash at our BOD member Gill&Fin's. Holly has been kind enough to setup a separate tank to house corals in to facilitate a proper frag swap, how exciting! So I am thinking now is a good time to let me get you in tune with how to have a successful coral exchange. I personally recommend posting up a picture of what you have to trade and underneath it include a list of a few things you are interested in for a trade, try to be open as the exact coral you want may not be available at the time but there are many "Fish" in the sea so keep your eyes peeled for something you didn't know you wanted. Once you have negotiated a trade with some one get their club screen name and their real world name and give them yours, this way when you are at the meeting you will be able to identify each other via name tags and the coolers at our sides. As far as packaging the corals for the swap I would recommend using a small cooler or a styrofoam box for transport. Tupperware are fine if the vehicle is kept warm during travel. I would also advise double bagging the corals especially hard ones with edges or points. And it never hurts to bring a bag of extra water just in case you need it for your frags or you get something unexpected at the swap. This is also a time to Share the Love and simply give away or donate corals to those who may need something you don't, should be a decent crowd of reefers there. So lets get to fragging a few corals folks, its just around the corner and you want those corals to have a bit of healing time right!? I am looking forward to this one. You can feel free to post up your trades here or start another thread up of your own, the choice is yours. Whats that, you want to see mine first? Okay, here's a little peak... Idaho Grape Montipora Capricornus Dainty Pocilipora Super Blue STag Alelis Blue AKA Aqua Man I will update this list with more things I have that need a pruning and a few smaller ones that can tolerate a "trim". I am just looking for things I do not have, right now I am really liking chalices and brains but like I said I am open to ALL kinds...Lets see what you all got going on!
