  • Trading Post Rules - Please read before posting

    Just a few rules:

    SALTWATER Reef and aquarium related items only.
    Unrelated items looking to trade for reef related items, as well as freshwater specific items, should go in the “Yard sale” forum.

    If it's your frags from corals you've nurtured, or stuff that you really used on your tank and you're finally ready to part with it, then sell away. If not it needs to be sold elsewhere

    Be sure to post prices on everything.

    Non-Sponsor, Commercial posts will be removed. the moderator's discretion. Basically, if you continually happen to have good deals on lots of equipment, or if you bought a bunch of stuff to simply resell, it'll get removed from the forum.

    Also, if your primary purpose for becoming a member is to constantly sell corals, or sell large volumes of corals at one time, without participating in community discussion on a regular basis, you will be considered utilizing the forum primarily as a sales tool, which is not acceptable and may subject your membership to revocation. This is not Craigslist.

    Same deal, if you suddenly have a ton of acro frags from your 20 gallon LPS tank. The idea here is to encourage people to culture and grow their corals rather than import or buy a big colony to hack up and sell for profit.

    Group Buy / Power Buy-Group buys should only be started by paid CORA members.

    Group buy's are not sponsored or insured by the club unless it is explicitly stated by the officers... and that's very rare. So, if a group buy goes bad, don't come whining to us. We don't care if it started in this forum.

    One other caveat... if you have a vendor's license, do not initiate a group buy. We will assume that you are getting wholesale pricing or transshipping livestock and acting in a commercial manner - even if you don't make a dime.

    The 99% Rule

    99% of people don't need to worry about these rules because they weren't going to break them anyway...

    If you would like to sell items through the forum we would truly appreciate you becoming a member. After all, without the forum there would be no selling here.

    Finally please read these rules as they still apply whether you've read them or not.
