Fall Frag Auction Registration Page

Recommended Posts

This is the "official" frag auction registration forum. Registration is for those selling corals. You must be a paid SWFMAS member to sell corals at the auction.

 

You do not need to be a paid member to buy corals at the auction. Registration to bid is the day of the auction and is open to all.

 

We have simplified the auction rules. They are:

 

  1. All corals must be registered by October 1, 2011
  2. Registration consists of listing the corals for sale in this forum and posting a pic of the parent colony or the actual frag (your choice) in this forum.
  3. If you choose not to post pics in this forum, they may be emailed to jeff@swfmas.com (still due by October 1)
  4. Auction split is 75/25 (75% to the seller, 25% to SWFMAS)
  5. If you wish to have a minimum bid, please post it at registration
  6. There is a maximum of 3 corals, per type, per person (in other words, you may bring 3, Hollywood Stunner, not 4. Also, you may bring 3 green digitata, 3 red digitata and 3 purple digitata. You may not bring 4 of each color)
  7. There is a maximum of 50 corals per seller.
  8. There is a maximum of 10 corals per type. Once we hit 10 of a given coral, no more will be accepted. This is first come, first served.
  9. There is no auction maximum!!!
  10. Every year, we have a few corals donated to the club. As always, these are welcome and will be auctioned at the end. We request that you preregister donation corals. But, this is not a requirement.

We call this a frag auction. But, it is really a fundraiser for the club. Any marine livestock is acceptable. If you are raising clownfish, cardinals, etc., we would love to see them. In years past, we have auctioned, macro algae, fish (donated from ORA), inverts and clean up crews (donated from Frank's Marine).

 

Please use the following format to register livestock:

 

Quantity (how many frags are you bringing), Scientific name (if you know it), common name, minimum bid (if you have one)

 

For Example

 

3, Montipora digitata, Red digitata, No reserve

3, Montipora digitata, Green digitata, $5 each

1, Montipora delicatula, X-Factor cap, $10

1, Montipora delicatula, X-Factor cap, $20

1, Montipora delicatula, X-Factor cap, no reserve

OK, I'm done cutting frags just for our clubs auction. Below is a list of what I plan on bringing. For now, I am just listing one of each coral. I'll adjust quantities and reserve prices after the PBMAS swap in September. If a reserve is listed, it is because I only have the one frag/colony I am willing to part with. But don't worry, the best frag/colony of each will stay at home that weekend so they will go to the SWFMAS auction! And, I'll be bringing 50 corals.

Today I have confirmed that we will have fish in the action. Unfortunately, I won't know what kind or how many until the week before the auction.

 

All I know is that they will be reef fish (gobies, blennies, basslets, etc.)

Just and FYI to all:

 

We will have some fish and CUC in the auction. But, I won't know exactly what or how many until the week before the auction.

 

So, these will be a late post on this thread.

 

For sure, we will have the following:

 

Astrea Snails (several lots)

Blue Leg hermits (several lots)

serpent star (or two)

brittle star (or two)

 

six line wrasse

firefish goby (aka flame goby)

clownfish (or two, or three or four....)

royal gramma

 

Plus more. I am anticipating 15 to 20 "lots" of CUC type critters and 20 to 30 fish. A 'lot" will be a bag with multiple critters (eg, a bag with 10 blue leg hermits)

I may throw in my two cents as well!

 

So far, I plan on bidding on more than a few items listed (and one or two not yet listed that I know are coming as late registration items)
