I'll have to check them out, never heard of them.
Pieces that size, I thought LA, for an arm and a leg!!
Nice to see some corals bigger than a thumbnail, seem hard to find these days, at a reasonable price. Used to be able to get decent sized pieces at a past (closed) LFS, but not anymore.
Here's a pic of my wall Hammer I got 7+ years ago for $75. Ahh..the good old days...

Attachment 100123

During a PWC, so not too happy!

Haha, thanks...just can't find them anymore, for anything close to my budget. Been looking for a few nice Acro's of some size, but their ridiculous!! My best LFS has some about softball sized, but their like $200+. Their beautiful, but...man!
Anyway, really nice corals, Brest of luck with them!

Hey,

Have you ever dove in the Cancun underwater museum? I would love to one day. It's such an amazing concept.

Never knew it either, Gosh I would love to go and see. I may have a problem with diving though cause when I was in service and I was trying out for Diver's School, I failed cause even with weights I couldn't stay under the water. Don't know if that's the case now though. I've been wanting to go to Cancun too but am chicken to vacation by my self. Are either of you going to try to go?

I lived in Hawaii for 4 years and I loved it and the snorkeling. That's where I was trying to get into Diver's School. I was in the service so it was the Navy Diving School.

After reading in another thread about upgrading your bulk reefs RODI units output via their 150 gpd add on unit ,I decided that for $60 that might be a heck of a buy,..at least for me.., normally, I'm doing somewhere in the neighborhood of a 20-30 gal pwc weekly and probably losing another 100 + gals down the drain each week.
I currently have theirs 5 stage 75 gpd unit,..by reading all the hype and the ton of user reviews regarding this add on ,.. It'll make twice the amount of useable water faster and with only something like a 1/1 waste ratio.,so for me, that'll mean larger PWC's weekly with less time and lower cost .
Sounds like a winner to me,...
