      Pay It Forward Corals (PIF Corals)

      Catchy subject huh? Anyways... ready for another one of my crazy ideas? I was thinking of starting a type of public domain coral w/ some restrictions. Basically, you'll get a frag of some corals for free and when it's time to frag it, you give it out for free. Any PIF coral will remain free forever. If you sell your tank with a PIF coral in it, you must give it back to someone who will honor the PIF coral rules.

      I'm not talking about giving away xenia... I'm talking about some nice corals also. It'll be a good way to get free corals and it'll help spread the love.

      The only thing is how to keep track of who has what coral and who gave who a frag of what. Confusing... Any ideas? Some sort of family tree structure would be cool to track these corals.

      Anyone interested?

      ---- THE MADNESS HAS BEGUN ---
      This is the temporary master list of PIF corals. I'm working on some sort of tracking system.
      Another list (hopefully with pictures) is available at www.fishrun.net under the PIF section

      I think that each coral should have a family tree. It might be a good idea to have a web page in this site where you can type in the name of the person who has the coral along with a list of all previous owners. We should have a list of names of people who join this "club". Maybe have a limit as to how many frags you can get in a month, that way there's enough for all of us. What else? Anyone have other ideas.

      Good idea Danny (and a little crazy). The only complication I see would be that someone offering something really nice is going to get swamped with requests and there will have to be some way to track/prioritize those.

      If you make the requirement that you have to contribute a coral to get 'in' the club, what's to keep someone from contributing a crappy brown zoo, then sitting back and letting all the free sps roll in?

      Also, if someone gets a frag and they are on the list as an 'owner', there will have to be a mechanism to remove them if the frag dies. That way they won't be getting requests for a coral they don't have.

      Alright, who is a DBA out there? Let's get a few folks together and bang out some rules and a design for the db!

      Maybe SDreefs could have a frag swap section in the site that displays pics of the mother colony, and is categorized by species. Users could sign up on a request list as deep as three people waiting max (this way the list is not so far out someone does not get the chance to hop on in the near future).

      The way to get a frag is to swap a frag on a 1 to 1 point basis system. Meaning...I can frag something, and the first on the list will get it. This gives me a point (let's call them swap points that allows me to receive a frag from someone's list that am one of three requesting.

      This will keep the trade going. Takers will have to be as big of a giver on the one to one system. Mother colonies will have to be posted, so we could even tier the system into two groups. Premium frags and standard frags. Each trade and earn points in their frag pool type only. The decision of what is premium and standard would have to be monitored somehow.

      Well...that is one idea off the top of my head.
