Hoping I can frag some of my acans. I know I have Zoas I can frag already and I'm preparing to do that soon. Just so I frag them correctly, are they usually single polyp frags or multiple?
People usually don't like single polyp zoa frags unless it's a really nice one. Some people bring mini zoa colonies. Some people bring single polyps. We encourage more but bring what you can and what you think people will be happy with.

BAR's frag swap has always been about coral trading and sharing (propagation and sharing the wealth). People brought stuff that they thought other people would like.

The last regional frag swap this one guy, I forget his name but he chopped up a pretty big Mummy's Eye Chalice colony and brought like 5 three-inch frags to the swap. That's the generosity that fueled the original frag swaps and that's what we hope to see more of. But like I said, not everyone has a giant colony to frag so bring what you can and what you think people will like.
Sounds like this one is gonna be killer. Really excited to see what you pull off as you seem to be kicking some major butt lol. Time to start looking at some of the goodies I got stashed away and see what has enough growth to have a piece "fall off" ;)
I'll probably just go to see how a frag swap works. My tank is only a few weeks old, so nothing is big enough to frag. I'm excited to see other folks frags though.
I updated this thread with some teaser pictures :) to get y'all pumped.

The bonus rounds have finally made their way to BAR. Be ready to bring some of those corals from your secret stash.

finally got the tank somewhat cleaned up (i.e removed a bunch of frag plugs with skeletons on it, etc), should start cutting some frags and throwing them in a frag tank (my anemone tank works). I'm can guarantee nothing "bonus round worth" (well maybe one or two, but I don't care about that), but I'll not bring junk.
If you don't have something set up already I should be able to help out those needing frags. I'll have to take a look when I get home but I know I could do several packs off the top of my head. I could do the $20 for 3 frags for those that need. Please let me know asap as I don't have a whole lot of space so I will only be cutting for those that get with me ahead of time.
