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.

Dealers 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

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 Bought In.
3. Admission is $5, Kids are FREE. Having the Exact Amount Helps Things Go Smoother at the Entrance.
4. Large Baby Carriages and Coolers with Wheels are Discouraged. The Hall is Filled with People and Those Large Items Make Traffic Flow Difficult.
5. Doors Open at 12:15.
6. Raffle Starts at 3:15. Everyone Gets 5 FREE Raffle Tickets (Valued at $1 Each) with Paid Admission. (So Basically You Get in For FREE!!!)
7. 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).
