    What kind of containers work well for the frag swap and where can I get them?

    I got mine from Amazon but I think the clubs says that you can get inexpensive deli containers at Smart & Final I believe.

    Smart & Final is convenient when you start complaining about why you don't have any lids left but you have half a package of containers! :D

    I'm not very close to a Smart and Final so I just order the 16 oz deli containers with lids off Amazon.

    Here's my frag cup setup to keep the frag plugs from rolling around and damaging the corals.
    ( I used 5.5oz cups with 3/4oz cups placed inside and upside down. I drilled some 3/4oz cups with 3/8" holes and some with 1/2" holes depending on the size of the post of the frag plug )

    People BUY those cups??
    Seems like I get take-out enough there are always plenty with a bit of recycling.

    I have noticed good polyp extension with Curry Chicken in particular.;)

    I definitely clean and reuse my take out container but most of them are larger than I'd like. The smaller cups are more compact and fit better in an insulated case. Three of us are coming together and brings roughly 15 corals each. So you could image that 45 Curry Chicken containers would take up a lot of space.

    I think you meant lids.

    Haha yes lids thank you. Spell check tried to do it again. I have plenty of kids which I am willing to trade for any ultra coral or 3 bonus corals.
