    If you have Never Been to a Frag Swap Before Check out this Video from a previous swap to get an idea of all the fun that you will have. :)[​IMG] upload_2019-1-22_12-55-37.gif

    Vendors from around the country come to sell coral (much of which are the amazing brightly colored corals that you see online).

    It is also a great way to meet old friends and make new friends that are in the hobby.

    You will find the hottest Zoanthids, Acros, Acans, Chalices, Mushrooms, etc. all at great prices!

    A Few Frag Swap Tips for Both Newbies and Veterans

    1. Don't Forget Cash. Some Vendors will Take Credit Cards, but Others are Cash Only.

    2. Bring a Portable Cooler - to Store the Corals that you Bought In and to Keep them at the Right Temperature.

    3. Doors Open at 12:00 Noon and the Swap Ends at 5:00 PM

    4. Be Aware of How Much Time You Take Talking to a Vendor if what Your Discussing Doesn't Involve Buying Something. Vendors are Very Helpful and Knowledgeable and Most Will Try to Help You, but Please be Conscious of the Fact that Vendors are There to Sell and Not to Explain How to Rid Your Tank of Nuisance Algae (For Example).

    I always bring a couple of these Small Coleman Coolers.

    To Keep the Corals that I Buy at the Right Temperature.

    But any Cooler will do.

    This year we have added some cool stuff for the kids at the Michigan Coral Expo & Frag Swap (Lansing, Michigan) so they don't get too bored while mom and dad are shopping for corals.

    We have Face Painting by Hilary, LLC on tap to paint kids faces for free (with paid adult admission, as timing allows)!

    We also have a bounce house and obstacle course that will be setup in the lobby.

    Plans are also in the works for a touch tank for kids to "feel" what some inverts are like.
