So here it is, my MrCoral picture review.
I received tracking info last night at about 6:00p stating that the package shipped to be delivered by 10:30a. I received the package, UPS, at 9:36a.
The package bottom was soaking wet, so I was quickly concerned, but I never figured out where the water came from, though cleary it was from inside the box.
The packaging was okay, and the heater was still working, though the bag water was cold. All the small bags were wrapped in one large bag and sealed.
It was obvious that there was more care taken with the larger 1" frags and the "limit 1" frags. Double bagged / cleaner water.
The process was consuming as I dipped all corals before placing in tank. I attached a picture of the hitchhikers that I didn't trust. 5-6 reddish worm-like creatures with fans on the head or tail, and were swimming. They ALL came from one small bag on one coral. All other corals were free o any nasties, with the exception of a tiny starfish.
The March Madness free corals are a joke. They are tiny, 1/4" maybe for SPS
, but the favia type free ones were okay. They also sent two, something's that I have zero clue what they are. They look like skinny cigarettes... Pic included.
After putting into tank, most stuck polyps out fast - the validia-style acros still no polyp extension.
95% of the corals actually appear to have some healing where they were fragged and I'm 90% sure that they are all the WYSIWYG frags that I picked.
All in all, I'm not too upset, other than I clearly misjudged the size. These are tiny tiny frags. I'd like to grow them out some to see what they actually look like.
Here are the pics:
