New Corals at a fragswap

Going to my first ever fragswap, I have to say it was amazing. Especially being able to buy soo many frags at such a low price. Heres what I was able to go away with from the swap.

Hammer


Star polyp with watermelon zoo far left of rock, hard to see.


Blasto


Frogspawn with some hitchhiker Aptasia


PPE, Armor of God Paly, Watermelon zoo, and some neon green zoo, and Orange ric


Green Ric


Torch coral


All of those corals gotten from fragswap for around $130. Pretty good deal I think. One question though, is it ok to put the PPE, Paly, Watermelon zoo, and neon green zoo that close together??

Didn't trade anything, whoever was selling I bought with cash. Greatest deal was the frogspawn and torch, got those two for 10 bucks. Also won a Coraila 4 at the swap too, so I got my moneys worth. There will be another one in the fall in my state, so definitely going once I get my 75 up.

We(LMAS.org) host a frag swap every November in Louisville, KY. I think Cincy has one in October too.

Nice corals for sure.
