Hi Lake Erie Reefers, it is your not to far away friend from WORC. Looking forward to your frag swap this month. Looks like it is going to be over the top this year. Many of our members are making the trip.

If you still want more after the swap we are having one on March 29th in Dayton. Here is some information. If you wouldn't mind helping me get the word out. We also use Fragswapper so check us out.

Unless you have been under a rock you have likely heard about LRS foods. A premium blend of "human grade" wild caught seafood packaged for feeding our wet pets. You may not know that they recently launched a NEW website with lots of great content including entertaining video's, lots of pictures of their company mascot (Jackson), social links, product information and even their own studio recorded song called Reef Frenzy Blues. Check it out when you have some time http://www.larrysreefservices.com/

I haven't personally tasted any LRS food but my fish love it. I see a level of excitement best described by it's name "A Feeding Frenzy" when adding LRS to the tank. Another notable item is the food is very clean and smells fresh. It doesn't cloud the water like other foods can if not rinsed really well. I can just break off a piece of LRS and put it right into the tank. No prep required. If you haven't taken the LRS experience I highly recommend picking some up at your retailer you frequent. With 120 stocking locations it shouldn't be hard to find. If your local store doesn't have it ask them to call LRS.

LRS will be attending our swap and have graciously donated Two- “bundles” of food which include 2 packs of Reef Frenzy Nano and a pack of the LRS organic Seaweed. Each bundle will also include dry ice and an insulated travel pouch to get the food home and a LRS T- Shirt.

As items are beginning to role in from club supporters for the raffle thought we would share some information about it and how to get free raffle tickets.

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. 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 on Fragswapper you will receive one free raffle ticket up to a maximum of 3 free tickets. Swap vendors are excluded from receiving free raffle tickets.Your tickets will be waiting for you when you arrive. Just tell the cashier your Fragswapper email address

Note: A unique item on Fragswapper no matter how many "quantity" counts as one item. i.e. One item with quantity of nine is considered one item.

How about a few pics of some raffle items

If you have been to one of our Frag Swaps you have probably seen CeramEco products. CeramECO makes Vida Rock. Vida Rock is an Eco friendly alternative for building your dream aquascape. It is made from clay and engineered to give high porosity to enhance biological filtration.

At CreamEco they don’t believe aquascaping should be limited by how well you can stack rock. Aquascaping with VidaRock is a creative process that will reward your desire to create a realistic reef and showcase natures’s beauty and your handiwork.

If you like to add this rock alternative to your tank consider asking your sponsors/LFS to consider stocking it for you. Take a look at the great shapes their rock comes in and the endless possibilities it creates for a creative looking aquascape. http://cerameco.com/
