    @lifestyle pets and other sponsors. When is the next event taking place??? Think it's been a while (last done in Feb) so sure alot of frags has grown since then...:thumbup:

    Feeler; frag swopping event
    Between me and Ian we have been working on a idea for a while and would like to get some feedback from all you reefers out there.
    This is our idea:
    We would like to host a event where anybody can bring their frags to our shop, each frag then gets numbered and put into one of our coral displays (we will empty a display) Then between all of you, you can swop and trade and barter as much as you want to. We will bag and tag the corals for everyone there. After this whatever frags are not traded or not wanted we can make a cash offer on them.
    The thinking is to do this over a 2-3 hour time frame on a Sunday morning. We as lifestyle pets will not charge anything for this and merely facilitate a swopping of frags for you guys as promotion for our wonderful hobby.
    We as a shop will also participate in the event and will have our own frags to barter with.

    So

    what do you guys think?
    will there be participation? any interest?
    Any ideas how we can do this more effectively?

    @Hails yes it did go very well, enjoyed it alot and think it would be nice to have again, also include all un wanted corals( if your tank is too full or you looking to swop for something else).
