Vendor booth reservation is now open. Same for earlybird hobbyists that would like to reserve a table. Although we have a large venue space is limited. We hit capacity last year and were not able to acomadate everyone so don't miss out. To reserve first check the blueprint here, pick your booth number and email it to Mike at worcreeffragswap@gmail.com. Yellow tables are earlybird and blue are vendors.


This years raffle grand prize is a 60 LED Orphnek lighting system donated by Gerbers Saltwater Warehouse.


Fragswapper will be open in a couple weeks. In the meantime start fragging those corals so they will be healthy when the swap rolls around.

How the Raffle works

At the swap there will be a staging area with several tables setup. The raffle items will be displayed on the tables along with a collection cup next to each item. Place your raffle tickets in the collection cups for the items you wish to win. The raffle tickets can be purchased at the swaps entrance where you pay admittance fee. When the raffle has started someone will mix up the tickets in the collection cup and blindly select one. If it is yours you win that item. The more tickets purchased the better your chances of winning and there is no limit to the number of items you can win. However you must be present to win.


How To Get 3 Free Raffle Tickets

In addition to purchasing raffle tickets you can obtain free tickets for posting items for sale on Fragswapper. For every three unique items you post; you will receive one free raffle ticket up to a maximum of 3 free tickets. Your tickets will be waiting for you when you arrive. Just tell the cashier your Fragswapper email address


Note: One unique item on fragswapper no matter how many quantity counts as one item. Swap vendors are excluded from receiving free raffle tickets.

As many of you have found FragSwapper has been having time out and slow page response issues since Friday evening. Fizz (Site Owner/Administrator) has confirmed it is a host problem that may not be resolved until Monday. When I hear it is back available I will let you know or if anyone finds it working please let us know. Thanks

Doors open at noon for general admission, and the raffle starts at 3:00. The address is 313 S. JEFFERSON DAYTON, OHIO 45402.


We are expecting an excellent turnout. Most of the live stock vendors have made special orders with their suppliers to bring in the most exotic and colorful corals.


Orpnek wanted me to let you know they are going to be bringing a bunch of inventory with some unbelievable pricing…. Here are a few items that will be available


DIF30 Blue

DIF30 18000k

DIF50 18000k

DIF100 Blue




They will also have a limited stock of slimlines, Mostly 48” and 60” daylight or moonlights and a couple of 36”. Also some 48” T8 LED in daylight or moonlight……


AND the BEST..... 3 of their NILUS units for a really special deal!!!!!



Just like any other swap the first half hour will be a madhouse with people rushing through the door anxious to get set up and treasure hunting. Please be patient as everyone settles in.


Don't forget to print off your checklist from fragswapper.


Lastly but not least here is the final swap layout




Hope everyone has a great time. See you tomorrow!
