    If you're around Dallas next month there's the farmers market and a frag swap a week or two after that.
    Dallas Fort Worth Coral Farmers Market
    I'm like a kid waiting on Christmas. Coral farmers market will be here with several coral farms from CA,TX, OK,, and others. Steve Tyree is bringing some stuff too.
    Can anyone loan me some cash?

    If you're in Dallas tomorrow is the farmers market.. Some of the big coral farmers from all over the country will be there. Greg Hiller will be giving a speech on reef chemistry.
    Cheers.

    Greg Hiller's talk was a separate event (club event) then the Dallas Fort Worth Coral Farmers Market . I couldn't make it over the Greg's talk, but I was at the CFM all day and man there was a rather incredible selection of corals.

    Yeah, thanks they're nice sized too for $25 !!!!!
    Steve Tyree was there with his frags from reeffarmers and the "Tyree sized" frags didn't look so great. hehe

    Nope that was one event I took nothing home from. I could have scored heavy at the end of the show from WWC but since I was staying another day I felt it was not in my best interest to bring home frags.

    Ok.. didn't know that but there was some good stuff. Almost bought an Acan from another tank but it was just too much $$$. The dude with the softy tank was asking some pretty high prices and didn't appear to sell hardly any.

    The large tank filled with acans was Todd Cherry of Cherry Corals. He shared a tank with ReefKoi.

    Hmm was that the one with the super Red acans and chalice? I liked those too.. the tank next to the door (left of door when inside) had some bright orange acans kinda like rainbow but brighter. I liked those.. problem is some acans lose their color .. so it's risky. Usually too much light from what I've read.
