    A little reminder, now's a good time to frag your donations for the MR box trade, that way they have plenty of time to heal. Please LMK what you plan on donating so we can have a diverse box. I will be at the next meeting and will be accepting donations there, my offer also stands for people wanting to drive to the lovely coastside I'm around to accept out here as well if you can't make the meeting. Thus far all donations are doing well and some have even grown (yes Mike even the underoos), and encrusted. I've even kept the "ugly" prostrata alive, which I successfully killed twice before, the only coral I've killed twice, it's growing even, time to ask for second gen over at the DBTC :D


    I figure I will get a shipping box (or boxes depending) from ASAP since they have a bunch lying around. What I need are 30 hour heat packs (2-4 most likely), and a lot of bags and rubberbands both of various sizes. I will ask in our sponsor forum first to see if they want to help, if not well have to figure it out. AFA shipping Gresham offered to ship via Reed Mariculture since they get a deal on shipping, if that doesn't work out I'll use FedEx.

    If you have any ideas or want to help pack coral LMK ;)

    No more then 2 heat packs per Indo,HI,Marshal, Bali sized boxes. No more then 1 heat pack per Florida box. No more then 1 heat pack per PI box level. No need for 30 hour heat packs, we'll be there sooner :) Use to many heat packs and you'll burn thru the available O2 MUCH quicker making the heat packs last 1/2 the maount of time.

    I'm thinking about sending this via air frieght and picking it up when we get there or having my friend grab it and bring it to Randy @ Pratt. I could also just send you FedEx labels and you could ship it to be held at the station or delivered right to Pratt.

    [/quote]Thanks for the info Gresham, I'm not quite sure how much we'll be sending out, or which type of boxes we'll be shipping in, just covering the bases. We'll have to exchange some PM's as the shipping time approaches, air freight is a good idea as it cuts down on the chances for error, plus you can be there to hear all of the ohhs, and ahhs.

    Great! Rich is over there right?? Hopefully he'll take pictures and everything.

    I'm sure this was mentioned but were the frags labeled at all?

    Rich and Gresham are/will be there, one brought lenses one brought camera body, I made sure they were going to take pictures.


    I know you are not a numbers guy, being that you teach history :D, the numbers on the coral list correspond with numbers on the bags. Randy had already gotten 500 deli containers, so I didn't send any out, plus deli containers are better there, as anything from a deli there is better than anything from a deli out here ;)

    So MR can have a swap without bringing any of there own coral. :)

    thanks G, yea life was not good that weekend. I almost made it in the morning, but got up and my car had a flat.
    it took a while to get that sorted out. I'll be in SF before the next MR swap ;)

    Bummer about the MR swap. We figured you had a bad day.
