I love the names...last time I saw names like these was in a Amsterdam cafe that served different varieties of a green herb. Those polyps were expensive as well I observed.
Lmao. Observing polyps hehe, love that!

Thanks. I have a trumpet coral growing much faster than some of my zoas. I started using Reef Bugs by Marc Weiss Interprises this week to feed my corals along with Phytofeast. I hope this helps.

Be careful with the Phytofeast as it can raise organic levels. Look into Reef Chili. I like it fine.

Here is my summer lovin palys. 170 per polyp.

I have at least 3-4k in just sing and double frags in my 30g garden.
OMG! I have heard some stuff, but it is unreal that you're willing to spend that much on a polyp. I'm in the wrong business if there are people like you that you could be handing me obsurd amounts of money for this.

I do enjoy my reef chili. I think I'll mix a batch up for my corals for thanksgiving when I get home from work at midnight.

My son is redesigning a web site for a coral provider we both like:

Cultivatedreef.com

They are having some nice x-Mas specials.

I definitely tagging along looking for good online places to buy corals at reasonable prices. But I will wait to Spring to order I have read several post last year that shipments hsvr been left in the warehouse only to freeze up during the winter months.

Never had that problem. It's all overnight shipping.

To be on the safe side, be certain to tell the online company that you want overnight via UPS or Fed Ex or a similar company. Also ask for signed delivery and plan to have someone at home to receive the package. I ordered some stuff from GARF and they sent it to me via 2 day with USPS even though they said it would be UPS via 1 day delivery. For my $160 purchase, only one $2 fish survived. I reported them to the Better Business Bureau. It is never worth trying 2 day delivery for corals. BTY, the USPS cannot send 2 day delivery throughout the entire US. It depends on the distance.
