    I work at D&G Pets up north in Fort Collins, and just wanted to give everybody a quick heads up on what we're planning.

    We will have a Table with some Dry Goods to sell, but the real news is...

    All the corals we are bring will be for TRADE ONLY!

    So bring what ever you have, we don't care what it's called, we don't care what it's "worth", we don't care how big or small it is.
    We will have all levels and types of coral, from easy common stuff, to the so called "high end" corals.
    Bring out what ever you have, and lets make a Frag Swap a Swap again!

    Reefers under the age of 16 will get a free frag while supplies last!

    If anybody needs to float bags, you're welcome to some of our tank space, just clearly label your bags with water proof marker to avoid confusion.
