mr coral order

Hey guys

I ordered 12 frags from mrcoral today! I think they come in tomorrow but he hasn't got back to me if they were shipped or not it just says completed under order status. I will post pics when frags are received and if its worth ordering from there or not. As of now I say I'm not to happy as I ordered this morning and haven't got a email response back about the shipping but hopefully everything comes in good.

Ok so they came in everything looked really good! Shipping was great packed very well with heat pads (he shipped on Tuesday because of snow on Monday), the corals were all double bagged in individual bags then placed in a big bag that also had water in it and then double bagged again. All the corals stayed on the frag plugs, looked exactly like what was pictured, and are already starting to open. I will post more pictures when I get home from work, used my lunch break to take coral home, acclimate and place on frag rack lol. Also he gave a freebie!

I'll be interested to see those in a month or so. Not to be a downer, but Mr Coral doesn't have the greatest reviews, especially when it comes to SPS. Those are very fresh cut corals..... the glue & plugs are still new & bright white, and you can see they haven't been given a chance to heal & encrust prior to shipping. Keep a close eye on them.......

Yea I know about the reviews but figured good prices nice corals why not try it. So far everything is good besides one zoa frag so 12 out of 13 which I only ordered 12 so got a freebie so can't complain...but your right its still new but I'll keep posting pics and hopefully they work out cause they are really nice acro and I'm not worried about the zoas or lps they're already are doing good and the across are starting to cover the base same with the months it is very small growth but still a good sign.
