    Hey guys, as discussed before with the idea of doing frag swaps i'm starting this thread so we can decide before hand what we would like to swap to avoid uneccesary frags. Frag donations are always welcome too:p

    So, whose interested in getting what and who has what to offer?:thumbup:

    We could also donate sand from our DSB for a bigger diversity:).Swopping frags on a monthly basis will be cool;)

    Playsand will be cool for now. Why did you buy aragonite?You should've invested in a RO unit:whistling:Arogonite is a nice to have but a RO essential:)I'm not to sure about taking a hand full of sand,wait for the guru's

    90 bucks aragonite and 1200 RO? i dont think they compare, plus i was still naive then, but my eyes are opened, wide open:p

    a handful, like just putting your hand in? think that will grab goggas and stuff? what will we be looking for culture-wise?:whistling:?

    Just a small cup of sand will be fine, even half a cup, no need to empty your DSB :p

    I would be glad to offer a few frags in a month or two. I might have some green star polyp frags available this next meeting.;) Just need to figure out how to keep them around because I leave for Durbs in the Morn and go straight to the meeting.:p

    i'd like some star polyps:) leave late for varsity in the mornin if you want to meet up on the mornin or somethin, i suppose you could otherwise keep them in a container with a battery powered pump/a small pump in your office? cia should have some spyware in stock somewhere that you could mod:)

    Star polyps are very hardy. Im sure you guys have seen how they are exposed on low tide to extremley hot temperatures and then all of a sudden a wave crashes over them and they are fine. Bag it and keep it in a cool place.
