Frags from sponsor Midwest Saltwater!

So Midwest Saltwater posted some of the frags they had on auction at eBay a couple of weeks ago. Due to my time constraints the box was shipped to me for this past Friday arrival. The box is the standard cardboard with insulated foam box inside. All the corals were individually double bagged and then placed into a larger plastic back. Newspaper filled the voids. So packaging and shipping is top notch.

After removing all the corals from their bags (after temp acclimating) I dipped each in Revive for a few minutes and then bathed them in CoralRX for about 7 minutes. This was followed by a rinse in a bowl of tank water and finally into the tank.

So here they are:
Watermelon, Orange Monti and Teunis


Oh, a piecs of the Orange Monti broke so now I have another frag (free)



Here's a TOP VIEW of the Watermelon chalice I paid $35.01 for. This was the most expensive coral I got in auction.


And a side view



Echinopora Top view I won this one for $7.03


and a Side view

So I got six frags altogether. Here's the rest:
Green Acropora for $5.50 It looks better than this poor photo.


Teunis $14.50 (not quite the colors of the auction, but it's only been in the DT for a day.


Orange Monti $0.99 DEAL of the DAY! Yes NINETY-NINE-CENTS!!!!!!


Rainbow Montipora TOP $12.50

If you noticed some other frags in the backround, I got those last week from a lfs I just found out about a couple of weeks ago. Most of the frags are brown and need some tlc to color up. Byt, he has a $10, $20 and $30 rack in a frag tank. I picked up 4 frags for $43.00 (no pic of the blue chalice, but here's the others:





And if anyone in NJ or Eastern PA (anyone in drivinig distance of Princeton, NJ) wants any of these, let me know. I have small colonies (1 - 10) and I'll be breaking a rock that that is covered to make room in my tank.

Thanks Wayne. My camera skills still need a lot of work. All those frags actually look better than the photos.
I use a Nikon D90

A new FTS will be posted after I do some re-aquascaping. I'm getting rid of some leathers and sps to make room for more sps. A local lfs will trade. I'm off Monday to make the swap, then agan next Friday and July 5th to finish moving thngs around.

I bought a 1/2" masonry drill bit too make holes for the frag plugs in my rocks. I drilled a few in the tank yesterday. Lots of dust, but it cleared in an hour. So several are now mounted to rock. I'll mount the rest on Monday,
