Frag Swap FAQ

How to prepare and what to expect at a frag swap.

What is a frag swap?

Frag swaps provide reefers an opportunity to buy, trade and sell captive grown coral to other hobbyists. A local reef club secures a venue, solicits vendors to buy booth space, hires notable speakers, and holds a raffle where they give away thousands of dollars worth of merchandise and livestock.

How do people transport coral?

Some people set up small frag tanks at the swap and then bag coral as it's sold. Other people prepackage coral in deli cups for easy "grab and go" purchasing.

Do I have to trade or can I sell coral?

Most vendors place a dollar value on coral and trade for cash. It's difficult sometimes to find someone who wants to make a direct swap.

If I rent a booth at a frag swap will I sell all the coral I bring?

You're likely to find someone who is willing to trade for coral or buy an item at a reduced price toward the end of the swap. You may not sell all of your coral. Some people donate leftover frags to local schools or educational outreach programs.

Is food available at the frag swap?

Typically there is food and beverages available for purchase at a frag swap venue, however you should check with the organizer of the frag swap to be sure.

How does the raffle work?

Manufacturers, hobbyists and stores donate product for the raffles. You buy raffle tickets when you arrive, and wait for the raffle prizes to be drawn. You can walk away with frags, product samples, pumps and even brand new aquariums.

What should I bring to a frag swap?

If you are attending as a buyer, you should bring cash (however most vendors do accept credit cards now), a stryofoam cooler (for your frag purchases), and a list of what you want to buy (both live stock and equipment / dry goods). Having a list pre-made can help you avoid making purchases for things you do not want or need, and can also help you remember what it is that you actually do need to buy.
