Help. Melissa wants coral for Christmas

One of the things Melissa wants for Christmas is corals. Go figure Since she can not climb the stairs to get to my office she can not see corals online to pick from, She also can not read this post. Anyone have a list of suggestions? Keep it under $1k. I am ordering Monday/Tuesday for Wed delivery. Only thing she knows she wants is a branching hammer.

Hey Brenden, how about getting her a laptop with wireless connection? Would save you time and would give her lots of things to do while recovering.

Just a suggestion.

I have that serge. She just does not know about it. I need to give her incentive to get better so I do not have to do laundry anymore. Well to tell the truth I did laundry for a week then hired a nanny and a house cleaner to do everything so I did not have to. With Christmas coming and all the people visiting I figured it would not get used much.

Matt if I was Bill Gates I would be paying you to do my tank and I would just sit back and watch. Talked to aquarium maker tonight. Starting to plan new predator tank with eels etc. Got any pointers for me?

How big of a branching hammer are you looking for? We've got a 5 branch hammer in our store for like 40 bucks....its maybe 6 inches across with each branch being about the size of a quarter. I know something that size wouldn't be much in your tank, but hey, its cheap.

He said "Keep it under $1k" so I don't think he's worried about cheap! Glad to hear she's doing better... when you're done with the nanny and housekeeper can you send them up the road to my house?

i have recently "found" the huge family of brains. i may wrong on spelling but i think wellsophyllia are really a great looking coral. lots of color variations and look great under actinics and higher K MH like 14K/20K
