  4. Sure, but we should focus on beginner corals and not have bonus rounds etc...

    I don't think much is frowned upon with this club and I think it is a great idea for members to trade amongst themselves whenever they want in addition to DBTC if that is what they want to do. We all know how expensive this hobby can be and it just seems many corals do well in one tank but not in another. I think educating and sharing ideas and corals with each other contributes to this club's success.

    When I first joined (a little less than a year ago) I was completely caught off guard by the generosity of the club's members. People were sharing equipment, corals, doing favors for each other... Things like that go a long way with people and it creates a culture where that's the way things are done in the club. I'm looking forward to being able to give back as much as I can to other members.

    I do believe in being generous. That's what I like about dbtc. As my tank matures Ned corals grow ( which is what's happening ) you'll see more involvement from me. I even used a connection to supply prizes to our raffle. We should all be here to help one another

    Whatever we do, please keep the bonus round.
    Funny though - while I like it, I don't participate in it.

    I bring what I have, which are easy corals like branching hammer and other softies.
    I would feel really guilty doing that if there was no bonus round, even though when
    it is my pick, I avoid the fancy stuff anyway.


    Another thought is to encourage members to donate corals at each meeting for the raffle.
    It seems better than putting some free coral on the web for first come first serve.

    I don't mind the bonus round either since I was on the lookout for one specific sps. I was looking for an icefire and knew there was going to be at least one at the swap. I placed the rest of the corals in the regular swap in lieu of more bonus round picks.

    I probably should have banked another icefire since the one that I got RTN'ed. Maybe next time.

    I picked up an ice fire from CRC on my way to the swap. It was only about 1/2" though so I didn't swap it. They had more though.

    I was at CRC earlier this week and picked up an "icefire" echinata as well. It's this piece, which is a confirmed Aussie wild. Bleached in their tank, but still has polyps and tissue so I'm chancing to see what it'll color up like.

    It's not the OG lineaged (Aquascene) piece, which is the one that I'm looking for.

    Looking like most people feel like 2 swaps are enough. I let the members speak and leave it at 2 for next year!
