I have been fragging corals for over 8 years, through those 8 years I have gone through hundreds of bottles of Cyanoacrylate better known as Super Glue, or other brand names marketed by a variety of companies. The problem with basic super glue is that it’s way too runny. Fraggers know that you tend to end up having more glue on your hands than on the plugs and corals. Over the past couple of years, companies within the aquarium hobby have developed their own “reef glue” formulas. They are much easier to work with, thicker and quicker to set. However, even with improvements, many still aren’t that great. The neck and pointed opening eventually become clogged with old glue, making it impossible to use all of the glue. More often than not, the glue in the bottle just becomes too hard after extensive usage, thus making it no longer useable. Read More »

This past weekend we held our annual TFP/NCPARS Winter Frag Swap Extravaganza, and I would like to thank everyone who attended the show. Thank you to our participating manufacturers who donated time and products, which made the swap an overwhelming success.
This was our biggest frag event yet, with upwards of 400 people who registered for the NCPARS swap, and hundreds more who showed up to the store for the great sales that went on all weekend long. Mid day Saturday, you could barely move in the swap, we made a 2500 square foot space, feel like a broom closet. There was something for everyone, from the rare and incredible corals from Jason Fox, to the guy with easy starter frags in Tupperware containers.
Thanks to our great manufacturers, we had some very lucky folks walk away with some very nice door prizes and raffle items. From Reef Capable Marineland LED lights to Perfecto and Current USA tank set ups, and much, much more. If you missed this one, you really missed out on one heck of an event. We look forward to working with NCPARS again, and growing the show into a regional event.
Felicia McCaulley was here to take some phenomenal photos and a commentary on the event. Read more about this year’s swap here.
