If you do use them. When you call ask for Nikki.

I find their CUC to be very small compared to other online retailers. I was also upset that they shipped coral frags that were tiny and not attached to anything at all. I have had much better experiences with LiveAquaria and BlueZoo.

I found that also with the CUC I too went to LA or my local guy fort CUC, reefsgo for my pods and little things. I did notice that with there corals also but when I was first starting out it didn't bother me that much as I was really new so I just clued them to plugs.

No it would bother me lol.

I ordered a cleanup crew and their hermits and snails were mostly extremely tiny, my zooanthids were off their frag plug and mostly dead, and my sun coral had almost all of its flesh disintegrated. That said, my scallop and conch were very healthy, as was my duncan coral. Hit or miss, IMO.

I'd use Reef Cleaners for your CUC. IMO, they are excellent quality.

I've made two different orders from them.. the first order I made I ordered, a few of their zoo frags and some clean up crew( a bunch of different snails , red and blue hermits and a red brittle star fish )... all came well packed and nothing was dead.. all is still there and thriving. Second order I made I purchased 3 different fish...a engineer goby, six line and a royal gamma all great sizes and healthy..still alive as well as a few mor cuc and a few acans .. once again nicely shipped and still have them all and the acans are growing nicely. I loved the fact their min shipping was 150.. I've ordered from both bluezoo and liveaquaria compared to both their customer service was above par and answered all my questions that I had.. I will be ordering again once they have some more fish in stock.

Edit: I also liked the fact that none of the corals came on frag plugs they were all attached to a piece of rock or shell.
