    I got:

    White Velvet Zoas
    Red Devil People Eater
    Jack-o-lantern Leptoseris
    Pink Lemonade Acropora

    after that I stopped swapping to let other people grab corals. NO MORE ROOM IN MY TANK :( but it seemed like people were still grabbing nice corals.

    and I'm kickin myself for not grabbing the Space Invader Pectinia!

    Can't remember everything I got, I got that Sakuri Sunrise one, I think I got a pink zipper, both from Ender, then I got a gold maul and a red halo people eater (although, not sure if this is right, it looked closer to a red devil people eater, I'll double check tomorrow). Then I walked away while the carnage of "free grab" time to throw my tickets into some of the raffle bags, when I came back I saw "random zoas" so I said screw it! I'll grab it, they haven't opened yet so not sure what they are (and to be honest I doubt I would know what they are :D). Also won the candy apple zoas from the raffle, and was a bit more excited than anyone else (even those who won the big prizes) mostly because I don't win very often so I need to be happy when I do win :D

    I love the Sakura sunrise, one of my favorite zoas. Fast growers, very bright. But I like gold mauls even more! Enjoy :D

    Yeah the Sakura one didn't really look all that impressive under the lights of cafeteria,and to be honest I have no idea what it was, but the skirt was a very bright purple/pink color and it caught my eye so I said why the hell not and grabbed that one with my first pick. Seeing it under the LEDs I can actually see how neat it looks.

    Hmm looking at the bonus coral list it appears everything I got was considered a "bonus" coral in one way or another (well except "random zoas" :D)

  13. My wife and I are so grateful for what we brought home! We brought home a "mystic" red base/blue polyp Monti, hell fire leptAstraea, huge green Monti cap (still can't believe the size of that thing!), green pocillipora, rainbow Monti, teal with orange center favia, mummy eye chalice, metallic gold leptastrea and purple stylo. Also scored a bird of paradise birds nest from Legendary Corals! Can't wait for tomorrow morning when the tank lights come on, it'll be like Xmas morning!

    I bought a frag of Vicious Vixen zoas from Legendary Corals.

    Looks veryyyy cool. I like that yellow ring inside of the green mouth.

  15. Love those! Won some from Legendary earlier this year at another swap, and they've been multiplying like crazy! I had planned on bringing a frag, but one of the polyps didn't make it, so I'm hanging on to it for another swap. They're a nice big polyp too - you'll love them!

    Pretty happy with what I picked up,

    The hammer has opened up beautifully, and the "Pink Palys" look like something called "Candy Apple Pink Palys". Once they opened up and I could see them, I was really happy.

    The event was wonderfully organized, and seemed really well attended - thanks to @Enderturtle and the BOD for doing such a great job with this! Had a great time, already looking forward to the next one!

    Big thanks to @Enderturtle and everyone who made the frag swap happen today. I brought 8 frags from our tank and took 4 home:
    It's a logistical challenge to drip acclimate corals who all have different water params, but we got through them all before dinner and had them dipped and in the tank. Thanks guys, looking forward to growing these out.
