First order from Mr.Coral

So on Monday 04/10/2012 I have placed an order for 13 frags plus one freebee = 14 frags total. I recieved the package today 04/1/2012. Delay one day due to order jam.

Curious to what your thoughts are on your order. They are located about 20 minutes from me and have gotten a few things from their retail store. Most have gone on to do surprisingly well!

Is this a review, or are you just letting us know that you ordered from them? If you're going to post, at least let us know what you think...

I used to live about 20 minutes from his retail store and always spent about 100 bucks every time i went in there. Had really good luck with everything. Show some more pics.

are ya gonna leave the plugs on or remove them? They don't look very encrusted you could probably get them off pretty easy and krazy glue them to your live rock....

The biggest down side to his corals that I've read are that the majority are not healed when they come in... meaning that a lot of them are often DOA or die shortly after. That's what the majority of people around here have experienced. I've talked to people much closer to him (and especially those who buy from the retail location) that have had much better experiences. Looking forward to seeing how these turn out.

Yeah, I've read that's the biggest problem with mail orders. Shipping usually destroy them. Even when they're overnighted. I don't need help when it comes to killing corals
