    I usually upload all mine a day or two before and then add frags donations from the local stores if i can get any that evening. its normal for this to fill up the last day or two before the event. Usually 100+ frags are entered.
    Four individual systems Right now.
    Modified Red sea 250 with attached 20 gal frag system XR15 pro light on FRAG tank, combo t5 reef bright led on main tank, now @100 gal total mostly sps tank, auto WC, Custom life reef filtration system Fuge and skimmer. KALK ATO chiller mp10's.
    30gal red sea 130d lps/softies/anemone tank, kalk ato, reef bright led strip.
    40 quarantine set up.
    500 total gallon marineland 300 DD main system 18 months old now and stabilized. T5 VHO lights/ BLUE led strip, Fully custom built LIFE REEF sump and FUGE, AWESOME 60" tall skimmer, and 1000+ gallon rated custom Ca reactor, attached SPS frag system and LPS frag system.
    I am expanding into this one ATM bit by bit,

    Still lots to learn about the hobby but I have amassed a great collection of real beauties and a FRAG saw will be in my future I think. I have broken past the stage of keeping things alive and now there actually growing out. Which is a big hurdle for many beginners I must admit. Good information and advise is hard to get sometimes and the club has done wonders with respect to quality advise and help in the hobby.

    Its about the time involved for me. I go thru pick what i want rid of take a picture and move it to the side of my rack area so i can bag it with the number the systems gives me and put into the box and go the next morning. other wise you have to look up each assigned number for the frag you took picture of find said frag put into bag then number bag n take to meeting. sort of gets complicated once you hit 40-50 frags some WYSIWYG of same coral type means you have to find exact coral for the bag n number it correctly so the picture matches the frag. Say 5 polyps and 20 polyps of XXX ZOA two different entires with two different descriptions and numbers. Like frag # 30 and frag #31

    It usually takes me 4-6 hours to bag all mine n photo them all and upload pictures type in descriptions n so forth. Usually 40 entries ish. The key is good pictures for sure.

    Remember max of three of the same coral per donator also applies. so no x30 frags of silver xenia lol

    Its always fun i love it to be honest. can't wait even if its a bit of work.
