Arizona Reef and Frag Group

Arizona Reef and Frag Group (ARFG) was established in early 2012 as a way for marine aquarium enthusiasts in Arizona to connect and discuss local and worldwide issues with members of our local reefing communities.

ARFG's goal is to provide a forum where reefers of all experience levels can feel welcome, respected, get help or provide help as well as buy, sell and trade items or livestock relevant to the reef aquaria hobby.

We here at ARFG hope that with the collection of experienced hobbyists, the wealth of knowledge ready to be shared and our mutual respect for each other and our personal goals, you can call us home. Welcome!! We are honored to have you.
