Has anyone else considered just having a "trade" so we can all back up our corals? If my tank crashes I have nothing......but if I backed my corals with a few other people....then i can ask for a frag to start my coral colony back up. I obviously dont have much in my tank to bank......but I was just curious if anyone else had considered something like this with the club.

Not sure about the club, but we've been banking our corals with various reefers for years... It definitely has a pay-off !

I'd definately be interested in doing this. Most of my sps are pretty small, frag to mini colonies. But I have read about other reefers doing this. It definately works out for everyone involved.

+1, this is definitely a good idea! we just have to worry about sharing Red bugs and AEFW.

Not if you dip and qt all corals:) I know it is a pain but very well worth it!!! Trust me we learned our lesson years ago
There are several people in the club who dip everything they buy

To my understanding, the only "dip" that will kill red bugs is interceptor.

Correct from what I remember. Some people will put corals in a bucket with interceptor and a powerhead for a day and than put them in a QT to make sure they killed them all.
AEFW is a comppletely different story, thay can be VERY hard to get rid of....
