    Just wanted to share what I got in my Battlebox from Adam. All I asked for were some 'easier to care for sps'. Gave him a price I wanted to spend and couldn't be happier with what I received! I'll post a pic on a few.

    Not pictured is a blue tenuis that was severly stressed after shipping. Still not sure if it'll pull through. Don't know why it was stressed as everything else looked fantastic, pretty much right out of the box.

    In my experience, that’s not all that surprising. These are some of the quirkier creatures I’ve ever kept. Whole tank can be happy as can be, and one piece might literally die overnight....welcome to acropora lol

    Oh and btw - I’m not sure that Monti on the right qualifies as a “frag” I’ve seen folks that would consider that “full grown”

    I recently purchased a pack from Adam and the only one that didn't make it was the blue tenuis. Everything else is encrusting and looking great. Top notch corals with top notch CS.

    Yeah, I was surprised at the size of that one. The reverse superman never appealed to me in pics online. Seeing it in person, I really like it!

    Thanks for the info! I want the tenuis to pull through but don't think it will. Time will tell. It still has live flesh but I had to frag the frag, lol.

    I just got a pack 3 weeks ago with a blue tenius and i guess I'm a lucky one... doing fine so far and even starting to turn blue.

    That happens a lot, sometimes photos just can't capture the colors of corals. Of course, there's also the photoshop side of things too where it doesn't look as good in person.

    Rough hobby sometimes!

    The rainbow sarmmie is becoming my favorite out of the bunch.

    Just wanted to post a little update. The Rainbow Sarmmie is really encrusting nicely. Seems to be the fastest grower for me so far. And it has awesome polyp extension during the day and insane pe and night. Really liking this one! Kudos to Adam @Battlecorals for some sweet coral!
