    Hey it's time to frag some corals for our first event of the year! We'll be having a lil informal class on fragging corals. This timing should work well for our Member Frag Swap in March.

    Information
    • Date:Saturday January 19, 2019
    • Start Time:12:30PM
    • Location: @Wlachnit Will's house in Pleasanton.
    • 1486 Via di Salerno, Pleasanton
    We'll cover different techniques for fragging different corals.
    • Which tools work best for which corals under certain circumstances.
    • Which corals should be fragged and which ones cannot be fragged.
    • What to do after you frag a coral? (e.g., don't put fresh cut fleshy corals in high flow or the skin will rip off
    Please reply to the thread if you will be coming...and if you have any corals to bring that you want fragged.

    Also, who has the Bandsaw? We will need this for the event.

      Would love to come as well. I should be bringing a Miami hurricane chalice, a pocillopora and some zoas. Maybe an acan and a blasto if it’s fraggable by then.

      I’ll be there!

      I’m getting band-saw envy, I didn’t realize all the cool kids have one.

      I can bring other stuff though, like my fragging tools, eyewear, CA glue, extra frag plugs, extra deli containers, etc.

      Do you guys think it is worth have a frag dipping workshop at the same time? It’s pretty critical especially after our frag swaps, and it would be good to show newer Reefers the basicas as well as share Pro-tips. I can bring some dip (I have Bayer and CoralRx), dipping equipment, and extra Reef Crystals saltwater.

      Will, let me know what you think and how else I can help.

      Yes on the frag dip workshop. I'm amazed at the number of people that I talk to that don't dip and say they don't know what to use.

      Yes, great idea. It would be great if you bring the above.

      How do we still only have 4 yes attendees?

      I think this is one of those events people kind of put off making a decision about. For something like a frag swap people will try to leave their schedule open much earlier. It's easier to tell a spouse, "I have to go -- we only have two a year." Workshops are a little harder to convince everyone at home that they are a must attend.

      Is it a 3-day weekend for everyone? That's my dilemma.

      No 3 day weekend for me. Doesn’t everybody just tell their wife/husband hey I’m busy that day ?

      I actually make it sound like I don't even really want to go, but I have to, cause I'm the president. That excuse has sailed tho...

      Just say you're passing the baton to the next pres?

      Thanks for the reminder that it's a 3-day weekend.
