It's an event where those in the hobby with crags can set up a tabletop with a tank and sell drags. Often they are priced at half or less than you would pay at a lfs. It's also a great way to meet fellow reefers or put a face to an online name.
The cover charge helps defray the cost of renting the space for the setup

When is it? Maybe I'll see you there.

Oh you do not need to bring any frags. Be sure to bring some insulated containers to carry them home in. Most folks have plastic bags to place the frags in, but I've also gotten some in plastic pint containers.

Have fun.

I've been wanting to go to one, but always have something planned the same day, when is that one? Last one I missed was at ThatFishPlace in Lancaster.

I went to two frag events out here in socal in the past two weeks and from just those two times my tank is stocked with coral. Best of all I saved a crazy amount of money, you will never want to buy a coral from your lfs again because they will all seem overpriced.
