Well, just sounds to me like you should send me a tell with what you are bringing to the table to trade. I need to get my meteor showers into a different tank, they just won't thrive for me.

What are you looking for sps mainly? I've got a mixed reef and pretty much willing to trade anything if I like the deal.. after getting use to my system and the whole SW side of things I've decided to go the more high end coral route. Mainly looking for branching/plating sps, acans, and favias/favites. Encrusting sps and chalices would be nice too

I'm part of the pmasi group, which is a reef club in monroeville. It's 24$ to join for a year and they do a bunch of things including raffles (the corals are huge, but they'll frag it down if you need to), giveaways, workshops, guest speakers, frag trades, picnics, a behind the scenes trip to the zoo, the list goes on and on. I was just at the picnic they had Saturday and it was tons of fun, and tons of food of course they have a forum, but I don't want to steer away from good ol' AA.

If people live close to me, I'd be happy to trade with them. I have mostly sps and some Lps, but im not too picky lol.

We also have tons of great lfs in pa. From Philly and Lancaster, thatfishplace and the hidden reef are highlights, in my area, there's Aquaworld, Elmer's, wetpets, oddballs fish and aquariums, seahorse, daves aquastock, and a new one coming soon called the saltwater sanctuary. There are also a lot of reefers who love trading corals, theres one in kittaning who has some awesome stuff. I recently gave some Xenia to a guy starting his 180 from the club, he also bought my darth maul palys from me. Give me a pm if you want to know more!

Sorry, I posted too quick and now I edited it. Yes I definitely feel the same way, but their local and super friendly in person, I sold my old t5 fixture to a lady named Carey, she was unbelievably nice, and gave me neon green clove polyps and a brittle star plus some salt and cash. Truly great people, especially when you get to know them. To anyone, PLEASE pm me if your going to a meeting sometime, id love to meet you.

The only thing for me is I'm the youngest there, I'm only 15 lol.

I've only been to the last meeting and the picnic, I'd say for meetings, more than 20, but for the picnic there was about 30. And the meetings get more people in the winter.
