    If you have Never Been to a Frag Swap Before Check out this Video from a previous swap to get an idea of all the fun that you will have

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nanVWZhUuzw

    Vendors from around the country come to sell coral (much of which are the amazing brightly colored corals that you see online).

    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, Mushrooms, 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.

    2. Bring a Small Portable Cooler to Store the Corals that you Bought In.

    3. Doors Open at 10:00 AM and the Event Ends at 6:00 PM on Both Days.

    4. 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).

    I always bring a couple of these Small Coleman Coolers but any Cooler will do.
