  1. Come one, come all to the 2019 Winter Frag Swap! Confirmed Exhibitors: Jolt Fishworks Tylers Tanks (Tyler) Pod Your Reef (Josh) iJam (James) Uchin Jon Hanna Deluxe Corals (Philip) Stoneroller (Kevin) Unlimited Color Corals (Christopher) North American Coral Labls (Justin) Obsessive Coral Desires Doors open at 9am - 1pm, admission is FREE to attend! @ Hillcrest Church - 3838 Steck Ave, Austin, TX 78759 map For those of you that are new to frag swaps, it's just a gathering where people who have coral frags to sell or trade come together. Exhibitors will bring display tanks so you can see their corals under ideal conditions (water flow, lighting). Many buyers will bring frags of their extra or overgrown corals to trade, sell, or give away. You don't have to rent a table if you're just bringing a few frags to swap. It's really just a great occasion to come check out the huge variety of corals that your fellow members and friends are growing and to 'talk tank'. Bring the kids for special guest, the Austin's Photo Booth Guy! https://www.facebook.com/austinsphotoguy/ Exhibitors must RSVP in advance. Tables are $50 (please no sharing), fees offset venue cost, expenses, and support our scholarship fund. Setup will be from 7am - 9am for sellers with breakdown from 1pm to 2pm. Bring your own water and power strip (and cleanup towels), we'll provide the tables and chairs. Tables can be reserved through the store link below:

    The new tank is up!

    Yep, time is your friend. I like a few cleanup crew members to keep it stirred up (snails and small hermits), but a lot of people don't like them.

    For most jobs you're better of having someone do it for you. Have you checked with Regal Plastics (https://www.regal-plastics.com/)?

    Red and green and bubble algae

    It might be worth seeing if you can borrow one. Temporarily it can be placed beside the tank with an infeed tube going into the water on one side and a return on the other. I would also add carbon or maybe chemipure to try to start filtering anything out of the water that might be there. The other thing to is a 3 days of darkness treatment to try to starve it out. The growth you're seeing is dependent on light.

    Hi All

    The search bar in the top right is what you want to use. The more unique a word is the better your results, for example, using just "harlequin" instead of "harlequin shrimp" helps cut the clutter. You'll see that after I put both words in the search box I got the following: Note how it has the comment, "Didn't find what you're looking for?" It then shows you how you can refine or filter the search. Clicking the second option "Harlequin AND shrimp" seems to return what you're looking for.

    The Maroon Lagoon V2.0

    Urchins are the best thing for GHA, not only will they eat and scour the rock, but they constantly disturb it so that you can remove it easily.

    There won't be a Nov swap, we didn't want to cause any conflicts with the Texas Coral Fest being held in Dallas on Saturday, 11/17. We're looking at January for Austin now.
