    It's been a while for me, but I love them. No cheaper way to get acros and they are not wild caught. 8)

    I held a Hardware and Frag swap in early September at my house. It was insane. over 100 people came with maybe 20 sellers. Of coarse the people selling were also buying.

    We had draws sponsored by a LFS and cookies and drinks provided by anyone who felt like bringing something. It was a great time. Alot of people found what they wanted and some money was made

    My local Reef Club holds one every year. We have a separate equipment auction to raise money for the club as well. Beyond that, everyone is trading at every meeting even though it's not sanctioned by the club.

    It's a real good way to get a lot of interesting animals. Beyond that, I've been able to give people back a clone of their OWN coral after a tank meltdown.

My boss was at one on saturday in Michigan :lol: We sponsor any that ask, and many that didn't but got hunted down by me :)

    I only wish they would have such an event in my area because I would be the first one in the door!
