Hi Everyone,

So this special meeting will be the second on our series on coral propagation. We had well over a 100 people show up and 8 vendors setup tables for our January meeting which surpassed expectations and made it one of our most successful events in years! :) Everyone should've walked away with free pieces of nice zoas from my tank and other fine corals that were available from the vendors there! SeanD and Austin also donated as well so thank you guys! We hope they are all doing well in your tanks! For this next propagation meeting we will be focusing on LPS - Large Polyp Stony.

LPS covers a very wide range of different types of coral and as such there are many different propagation techniques that need to be applied depending on what LPS you are tackling. We've collected a few large colonies and will be demonstrating fragging techniques at the meeting once again. We've collected quite a few different colonies including some duncan, hammers, frogspawn, and cyphastreas. We will be giving out free frags of each colony out to all attendees. Priority will be given to supporting members, but everyone that attends will have some free frags to take home.

In addition, we will also be holding a frag swap at this meeting. So please bring any coral frags from your tank that you would like to sell/trade with others. We are also inviting some of our sponsors to attend and setup frag tables to share some of their amazing corals. Spike from spikecorals.com and Brandon from coralshoppe.com are also attending again with some fine coral frags. One change from last time is that the vendors will be in a separate room. I will once again be setting up a spare frag tank for any members to place corals in for display and sale/trade since most of you won't have portable tanks/lights available.

Admission is free for supporting members, $5 for non-supporting members. Supporting members can bring a +1 for free and any youngsters that you bring with you that are 12 and under also have free entry.

We hope to see you guys there! Please remember to bring a cooler or something insulated to take your frags home in!
