Vendors from around the country come to sell coral (much of which are the amazing corals that you see online not the bland common stuff that you see at your LFS – Local Fish Store). It is also a great way to meet old friends and make new friends that are in the hobby. You will find the hottest Zoanthids, Acros, Acans, Chalices, etc. all at great prices! A Few Frag Swap Tips for Both Newbies and Veterans 1. Don’t Forget Cash. Some Vendors will Take Credit Cards, but Others are Cash Only (Even if a Vendor Accepts Credit Card They Will Prefer Cash Because They Will Not Have to Pay Credit Card Fees).
2. Bring a Small Portable Cooler to Store the Corals that Bought In.
3. Admission is $5, Kids are FREE. Having the Exact Amount Helps Things Go Smoother at the Entrance.
4. Doors Open at 12:30
5. Be Aware of How Much Time You Take Talking to a Vendor if what Your Discussing Doesn’t Involve Buying Something . Vendors are Very Helpful and Knowledgeable and Most Will Try to Help You, but Please be Conscious of the Fact that Vendors are There to Sell and Not to Explain How to Rid Your Tank of Nuisance Algae (For Example).
