      Thank you for the fantastic swap, BAR! I've never come away with so many high quality pieces before - still pulling LE's on my last round too! Really says something about the quality everyone decided to bring. Can't wait to see how it all does!

      EnderTurtle - I got your Highlighters. I'm pretty stoked :)

      Glad to hear you got them. I hear that one isnt too common in Sacramento!
    3. BirmanReefGirl
      Not at all! My boyfriend had been eyeing some similar ones that were growing out, but not for sale. I justifed *another* swap by telling him I was getting them for him ;)

      I had a great time today at the swap it was good to meet some new people and also to see some other OG reefers like myself:) I got a lot of great pieces on every round!! Free for all I grabbed a red monti. Which even with all the high end corals I picked and bought today I've always loved caps and watching them grow the most out of any coral. I'm just weird like that..

      Just wanted to say thank you to the organizers, volunteers, sponsors and vendors.
    6. sfsuphysics
      Yup, fun event, was great to see Dan that was like a blast from the past! A couple other "OG" reefers that I hardly recognized (mostly because you realize 10 years later people might look a bit different) :D

      Thank you BAR members, volunteer, sponsors and vendors! What a great event! It was our first swap so we didn't know what to expect, and this just blew our minds! My daughter had a lot of fun too (she's my reef nerd in training). Just got home a little while ago (we are in Fresno) got the corals acclimated and in the tank, and I'm so stoked for the great quality pieces we came home with! 1st class group of reefers there today! Met some great people, Deven, Doug, Phong and his wife, Tyler, Geneva, and Johnny!

      Be sure to check out Central Valley Reefers (CVR) frag swap. Those guys know how to throw frag swaps too! And itll save you some gas since youre in Fresno and so are they :)
    11. brettandlyndis
      Will do for sure!
    12. wpeterson
      Thanks for a fun event. Let me know if you ended up with any of the frags I brought, always cool to see how they do.
