Bay Area Reefers 2013 Regional Frag Swap
We are pleased to announce the return of the BAR regional frag swap! This event is intended to encourage the propagation, sharing, and 'backing up' of corals throughout the reefing community. The frag swap is a great way to promote the spirit of generosity in support of the hobby and all its participants.
The swap is open to everyone. Meet and hang out with your fellow hobbyists. Share and enjoy the diversity of corals being successfully grown by your fellow reefers. Learn more about how to care for the corals you pick and the corals you currently have.
Never been to a swap before or don't have frags to swap yet?
No problem! We have a welcoming committee that will be on site to help, and a newbie table where you can select a few organisms to populate your tank and ease your way into the hobby. Come see how the frag swap works and be ready for the next swap!
How the swap works
• Corals entered into the swap will be placed on tables within a family of corals.
Categories: Zoas, Soft corals, LPS, & SPS (sub-divided into Sticks, Plates, Others)
• You will receive a name tag and draw a pick group letter
• Pick group letters are called in this order: A, B, C, D, ..., Z, Z, ..., D, C, B, A, A, ...
• During the first round of picking you will have a few minutes to select one coral
• As the swap progresses through the pick groups, successive rounds will be shorter and you will be able to select multiple corals
