    Is it GOOD used gear?
    Opinion : It is a raffle, so needs to be something numerous people would want, or there is no point.

    Well I plan on removing numerous rose bubble tips, but that said, it seems those are not really in high demand (i.e. people would want :D), either way I'll probably bring some for the swap, or maybe even the freebe table if there's no demand.

    I also agree with discouraging this. The goal is to raise money for the club and for members to "show off" particularly nice corals they've chosen to donate. I do also appreciate our sponsors donating their products to help us out.

    This being said - for those of you who grow amazing, sought after corals and manage to have more than you need to get into the bonus round - please consider making the donation of a nice frag to the club for the raffle! It helps us out a lot, and it's a chance to show off your coral growing skills!

    Kimmie will be donating a nice pair of her captive bred clowns (you've seen the thread), I'll be donating a 6" deresa clam, and I'm hoping we'll see some nice coral donations from our members!

    Going to have to frag this colony soon since it's starting to encroach on the other two 3.5" disk. Grown from 3 polyps to the 4" colony. They've come down in price from the $300/polyp price point to ~$30/polyp (when you buy more than 1 polyp). Not sure how well zoas do in raffles but they do look good regardless of whatever light you have them under.

    Likewise. I would as well. Should be a good raffle item.

    From my perspective, RBTAs count.
