Out of all the bar frag swaps in the past years, THIS is the one you won't want to miss.

As for prizes, we're just gettin' started baby! I still haven't revealed the prizes from our Local Fish Store Sponsors.

I've got people bringing frags from Redding, Sonoma, Sacramento, NVR, Fresno.

Wahoo 6 more days until the big event!

You should come through, I hear some of the LFS's (California Reef Co for sure) will be having sales the same day as the swap.

Also be sure to swing by Aquatic Collection (3 minute drive from Chabot College) to pick up this gem of a zoa! I snagged this 2P frag for 40$. Definitely one of my favorites and from what I've seen. Only found at Aquatic Collection.
