I ordered from them 6 times. Every order either had one DOA or just didn't have one of the things I ordered saying on a piece of paper in the box "out of stock" or "wasn't ready for shipment". Totally not professional at all.

I ordered well over 100polyps from reefs2go and ended up with maybe 5 that were viable over several shipments. Got a credit for the bad ones and the next batch were just as bad. I would steer clear as far as corals, not sure how their fish and inverts are but I'm too worried to try them again. :-(

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

My coral beauty is one of their fish. It is the only one that arrived alive. The last shipment I got from them I was very surprised, it wasn't like any of the ones I had before...but I threw a fit about that one. Many passive aggressive notes regarding "ALL OF THIS SHIPMENT NEEDS TO BE ALIVE" and others... I have one SPS from that order too...it is doing well, just the plug that it came on was literally falling apart. Even though there was improvement there is no way I'm testing the waters again.

Carey, where do you order your pods from? I'm trying this alga somethin or other stuff for the first time. They say that one bottle is enough to get things going...I have 4 on the way... And hows the mandarin? I SWEAR THESE TOPICS AREN'T TIED TOGETHER...

I've thought about building a 10g breeder tank for pods. Do u think it would be benifital and easy to get started. Don't mean to go off topic and all

A 10g with a light and some macro would be amazing for pod cultivation. I'm going to be giving it a shot in my DT and fuge. We'll see how it goes.

It could also be used as a sick tank. I'm working on it myself as we speak. Should be up in a couple of weeks bc my LFS said if I can wait he will hook me up macro and a bunch of pods

Now that sounds like a sweet deal. Being so far from the ocean makes getting quality suck...all my good stuff has been ordered in.

Kinda a plus living in Florida. I just found out today that a friend of mine goes diving down in the keys and the Bahamas a lot. He told me that he's got a license to bring back fish and coral kinda interested to see if he brings me back something.
