    Hey y'all let's frag some corals! We'll be having a lil informal class on fragging corals.

    • Date: Saturday October 15, 2016
    • Start Time: 12:30PM
    • Location: @roostertech 's House in Fremont
    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)
    • I'll be fragging corals in front of you so feel free to ask questions!

    I'm bringing these to frag
    Jack-o-lantern Lepto
    Rainbow Bubble Tipped Anemone
    Acan Echinata (free frags for new members)
    Hammer Colony (free frags for new members)

    Also, we will be having a little meeting after to meet the New People interested in helping with the BAR Club Events. This is super important to this club.
    @tankguy , @Corallus , @Flagg37 hopefully you can make it. Anyone else interested in helping please feel free to stick around after the Coral Fragging Class :)

      Much appreciated, they'd actually be my very first! My tank will only be 5 weeks old next weekend so not sure I can provide the best home for them yet haha, let's talk at the shindig though. Happy to help out where I can either way, been wanting to talk reef tank stuff with actual people vs forums since I decided to go for one months ago and what better way than over a slice and a cold one!?

      If someone wants to organize a pizza order ahead we can plan on pitching in money, club has spent more than we should've this year and won't be paying for food this time :(

      Hoping I can make it and will want pizza if we go that route

      I'll prep a cooler with ice for drink. BYOB. If I can squeeze time for a costco trip I'll get some pita chip and salsa as well.

      I'm definitely going to costco next week so I can grab pita/ tortilla chips and some hummus/salsa for sure. If you have a favorite pizza place I could schedule a delivery either for before or after the demonstration, whichever is preferred by the demonstrators? Like I said I'll definitely cover a couple XL's, like a combo and a veggie or whatever people want. That might cover it if it's just the dozen or so people in this thread, or if there's a way to add a poll as a kind of rsvp that might help too.

      Sorry to come in and start a mini-PPC right off that bat!

      I am new to this hobby and I am excited to attend this event. Just became a supporting member. Looking forward to meeting other members that enjoy this hobby. Any coral for sale at this event? I need to add coral to my tank. It looks empty

      Well geneva and I bringing some corals for fragging. Some are free but ask her if she wants to sell you any.

      I will be there and will bring Pork Buns from Chinatown! I hope a lot of folks that went to Dick's house (@F6553066 ) will come to this as that was a lot of fun. I missed the last frag swap so it would be nice to trade / give away frags at this event if anyone is interested or just to socialize even if you already know how to frag! As mentioned above, I will be bringing large pieces for Michael to frag but want to keep pieces of each....all have done very well in my tank and should do well in beginner tanks too.

      @Coral reefer Mike, do you think I should also bring my purple tongue? I'm not sure if it is big enough to frag again but there were members interested in wanting a piece through DBTC....

      I will be there. Embarrassing to miss it since I can almost walk there.
      Probably some green toadstools in the fuge I can bring to give out or for fragging.

      I unfortunately will not be able to make this event as I have plans, and just this week I had a 6"- 8" (Colony) Green Monti that separated from my rock.

      I would like to see if any one can deliver the Monti colony to the Frag Workshop. This is if you want this to be one of the corals to Frag for the attendiees.

      Here is the problem:
      I live in Santa Cruz, and I know I am on the outer edge of our coverage, however I will be in Gilroy/Morgan Hill area after 12:00PM on Saturday 10/8 if any one can pick this up from me would be great. I understand it is short notice so it just might not happen. I also work in Morgan Hill if Saturday cant work.

      I am leaving the house at 10:30AM on Saturday so please let me know before then if we can setup something.

      The complete top portion is what broke off.

      I will be driving back through Gilroy tomorrow afternoon on the way home from Monterey but couldn't say for sure what time, should be prior to 4pm I would think though. I have no experience keeping corals however, I could hand off to somebody in San Jose or up the 101 corridor though directly from there?
    15. Flagg37
      I'm in San Jose not far off of 101 but I'll be leaving for church at 3:30 so the handoff would have to be say 3:15 the latest so I could acclimate it a little before dumping it in. If someone else is more available don't hesitate to offer.

      I believe @mray2660 is on vacation and he has all the club's supplies now. I will pick up some name tags and bring the few frag containers that I have. Can someone bring more containers so folks can bring frags home? Thanks!
    17. roostertech
      If anyone want fresh water cherry shrimp, bring a container. I have loads.

      Hi guys, I am also new to the sw hobby and just became a supporting member. I have a nano 20gal that has been running for 4 weeks. I will be attending the workshop, though I don't think I can take home any corals just yet, I'm eager to keep on learning about this addicting hobby!

      I would love to attend and get an opportunity to chat with other BAR members. I'd be happy to bring anything if needed.
