    Last regional, we moved birdsnest to the free table because we had so much of it. It looks like there will be quite a bit this time too.

    There was talk of putting birdsnest on the no swap list.

    What Vincent says is true but we didn't decide quick enough for this swap. The regional we need to decide for.

    So are we going to use the same policy as previous frag swap? I don't think it was specifically mentioned.

    Let's see what the Pres says. I'd like to see it banned because we just get too much.

    I feel like birdsnest is not a terrible coral to have in the swap. Its not like the people bringing the birdsnest frags only brought birdsnest to get into the swap, and its not like they get bonus tickets or something for flooding the tables with this coral. In addition, I think there are always people willing to take frags of this coral home, especially if they are new to sps or even the hobby as a whole. Should we expect these frags to go in the early rounds? Of course not, but I have yet to go to a swap where corals are left over. Thats just my opinion :)

    Be careful what you ask for! Hope you have enough birds for all the nests you'll get.

    This one looks like the one that has been making the rounds at the regional where there was an entire table of it. It has the rounded tips.

    The green birdsnest that I'm bringing is slightly different from that one having grown both. It's has pointed tips similar to the ponape, but with a different coloration. It's kind of like the ORA bird of paradise, but with tips like the Ponape instead (pointed instead of rounded even in dormancy).

    No no! Bring some!

    If for no other reason that kids like to pick it up as "their" frag.

    Plus I want some. And am hoping my nitrate issues are mitigated by the time of the swap.

    That is seriatopra hystrix. The rounded tip version is probably seriatopra caliendrum.

    Yes, most likely.

    Haha! It's a decent looking digi. It's this frag to be specific.

    Probably would do better in someone else's tank where the base will show up better than what I run my LEDs at. P.S. that's the Becker tort to the left of the frame there; another old school piece.
