    If you have Never Been to a Coral Show Before Check out this Video from a previous swap to get an idea of all the fun that you will have.


    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 4:00 PM

    4. Admission is $5 and Kids 15 and Under are FREE. Parking is FREE as well. Having the Exact Amount Helps Things Go Smoother at the Entrance.

    5. Please be Patient with Vendors. Please keep in mind time is short and the crowds are large, if a vendor does not have adequate time to answer all of your questions ask for a business card or web address follow up with them at a later date, they are all professional and have great experience with keeping salt water tanks thriving but time is limited. The chaos can be great at these shows. The vendors greatly appreciate your business.

    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.
