Frag swap

I posted this in the regional forums, but I'm not sure how many people check out that section.

No problem. I got nervous there for a sec. Thought something was missing.

Come on up Ziggy. Going to be a good time. Sanjay will be there too since he's a club member. It's probably not more than 3 hrs from you.
ooops...lol Just Google mapped it. 4 hrs 43 mins. I guess thats a bit too far.

For frags and to talk with Sanjay that is not too far. I'll have to think about it though.

3 weeks to go! There are lots of frags listed on www.fragswapper.com now. If anyone is planning on going, register and reserve your frags. Some people bring extra frags, but most only bring what was reserved. Sanjay has a few nice 1's listed too.

Hope to see some of you there.

Just a little update. We got the official word on the topic Anthony Calfo will speak about.

"A Call to Farms! A path for hobbyists towards zero reef impact"
This lecture will embrace a wide range of topics including grass-roots hobbyist conservation options, small and larger scale propagation for profit and charity, and an overall focus on things reefkeepers can do to realize a self-sustaining hobby.

I just got back from the swap. It was a great time. I was hoping a few AA members would have attended, but maybe next time.

Anthony Calfo's presentation was very interesting. It was based on coral propagation. I talked to him for about 15-20 mins after his presentation about fragging coral. I told him about my frag experiment and he said he would like to see every coral frag you see for sale mounted flat. He explained how when the frag is mounted pointing up, only the top sections get the best light and flow, but when they are mounted flat, the entire length of the frag gets the good light and flow and growth is better due to the better lighting and flow. I can't argue with that since my own little experiment shows it to be true.
He also spoke of the problems the marine hobby may come into in the very near future. In the 70's and 80's, the reptile and bird industries took a hit when imports were virtually shut down. The way the coral reefs of the world are being damaged, he said imports of many coral and fish may be cut back to almost nothing. He urged everyone to do their best to propagate the coral they have to help take some of the pressure off the reefs.

If anyone ever gets a chance to see him, it's well worth it.
