Default Interesting idea

As I work on cleaning my basement and getting my new tank together I started to wonder what I would stock the tank with, coral wise. My 50g I had decided to only have a few pieces in there and grow them out and I'm thinking of doing the same thing with my 125g. Although the amount of real estate for this new tank is definitely staggering.

So....

I had this idea...

Why not have a dinner at my house where I cook a stellar meal and the guests each bring a coral of their choice. It could be a really nice frag, or it could be something that they picked up in a shipment that came in recently.

I'm a huge supporter of the local reefing community and that's one of the reasons I put on the BBQ every year (also to have a few beers) so why not do a dinner like this! It could be a yearly thing, or we could do something like this where we do it at other peoples houses

Good idea?
Bad idea??

Tell me what you think.

Hi Alt,

We don't know each other,
and I'm no salty
(more a killifish, crayfish, planted, freshwater guy),
but I think this is a great idea.

Kudos to you for building your community.
People need more face to face.

I think that's a great idea as well. It's just too bad I'm in Hamilton and most of the GTAA community seems to be based closer to Toronto.

I think face to face events are a great way to get to know some of the people we talk on this forum. Plus it would give the host a chance to brag about their tank and show off all the TLC they've done to make it their own.

The distance from my fish tank to Alt Hotel is 120 km. Come on Buttercup! Join the party! (And FYI, I'm poking in good fun, in case anyone thinks otherwise.).

On a side note - can anyone testify to Alt's culinary skills?
