      Nice pick ups!

      The diabolic pacman is supposed to be the same as the RR pink floyd. I don't have that piece to put next to the pink floyd to see if they'll fuse, but it would be interesting to verify.

      We made it just in time for the raffle. Won some acrylic mushroom boxes. Got 5 little corals from Reef Kingdom. At the end of the show he was doing "buy 3, get 2 free" on his $15 frags. Nice to see Mike, Will and Phuong!

      Yep, that would be my guess too. The bar booth was on the back wall along with the MARs and NVR clubs.
      Only a week of dishes for a $70 clam? Sign me up. I have to do them for free at my house.

      Yes, there will be a PayPal link to prepurchase the swap tickets.

      I wish I could have stayed later.

      @Chromis, I want to see what you got.

      I thought those acrylic softie frag boxes were interesting. Does anyone know who sells them?

      Really nice! I hadn't seen a blue/green mottled frogspawn. I was also appreciating all the chunky bright yellow acros, including this and the Pink Floyds on this trip.

      The guy from Clear Water Aquarium laser cuts and makes the mushroom boxes. The raffle prizes were even personalized to say "Coral Farmers Market 2017". It doesn't say his name, but his number is 415.342.0028

      Hopefully I can get this guy to grow. Then we can swap frags and experiment!

      What does a mushroom box do?
    13. RandyC

      Vented box for loose shrooms. Holds shroom and rock/rubble so it doesn't float away. They did look nice...Plus compact so it doesn't take a lot of room.

      Holds a loose mushroom over a rock/rubble/frag plug until it attaches so it doesn't blow away in the current.

      Though I was only there for about an hour, I had lots of fun window shopping. It sucked that I couldn't take any corals home as my tank is still cycling, but I enjoyed seeing a lot of the corals in person for the first time. I didn't go home empty handed tho, Reef Nutrition gave me two free bottles of copepods and a bottle of phytoplankton! I finally have life in my tank!

      Also, got to chat it up with Mr Flagg, too bad I didn't bump into any other BARers there.

      We needed a banner behind our table. I'm sure that's how Mark missed us. BTW, Steve and Randy paid us out $ for the raffle tickets. I can give it to @mray2660 at the frag swap next month.

      He very likely won't be there, Dave or I will take care of it in his absence
