I wanted to get some feedback, thoughts, ideas on starting a Dont Break The Chain idea that the Buckeye Reef club has been doing for a few years now. The post below was borrowed from their original post to explain what it is.

 

"I would like to get a "Don't Break the Chain" going in the Supporter Forums.

If anyone is not familiar.....This is a place where you can give a high end frag to a fellow hobbyist for them to grow out. Once this frag has grown and can be fragged again, it is reposted in the forum for the next person to take. The original donor can request a frag back if they have a crash or lose their colony.

It's a great way to get really nice frags and pay it forward to the next guy/girl. Plus it keeps your frag babies spread out in case of a crash!"

I like the idea and we can make a separate Forum for it on the site. Maybe in conjunction with the retro frag swap.

Love this idea. This is what indmas was when I first got involved many, many years ago and I loved it. Not only did I get my first tank started this way, I also helped to get other newbies going because of the shared corals.

Here are the rules that buckeye uses for each frag.

Fantastic idea!!!  Especially considering the price increases this past year.

I tried to get something like this started a few years ago.  I would be in for something like this!! 

Ive also wondered if people wanted to go in on a growout system.  everyone pitches in 100-200 bucks a year for tank costs and electric.  Then if you give 2 frags to the system, you can take one frag for yourself.  Or have some sort of a point system.  you can always get back a frag of something you have donated in case of a disaster.    I would donate a frag of everything i have as insurance all day long!!
