    Last year was lots of fun the night before. Hopefully everyone can comment here on how nice the venue/hotel is.


    Join us Saturday night of the expo for drinks, live entertainment, and fun. The hotel is the same location of the Expo.

    Call and book your room quick as it will sell out quick. Tell them you're with Buckeyereef and rooms will be $107.

      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

      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 (Even if a Vendor Accepts Credit Card They Will Prefer Cash Because They Will Not Have to Pay Credit Card Fees).

                  2. Bring a Small Portable Cooler to Store the Corals that you Bought In.

                  3. Admission is $5 (Kids 12 and Under are FREE).

                  4. Doors Open at 12:00 Noon and the Swap Ends at 4:30 PM

                  5. 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).
