You’ll love the mothership table! Nice polyp extension and contrasting colors. Here’s a pic of mine from tonight:

I 2nd this. I got a mothership frag as a freebie from @Battlecorals a couple of months ago. Polyp extension on this one is phenomenal.

I think I found the spot for my grow out frag. I've removed it from the plug and I hope this is its final home. I think it looks happy. Fingers crossed.:)

That's genius to use putty to remove those hard corners the coral has to grow down! I'm gonna have to do that now...

It works great with plugs also. If the frag has encrusted the top of the frag and you want to try to hide the plug a bit, you can mold the putty around the plug and blend it into the rock. As the frag continues to encrust, it makes it look like a natural growth onto the rock.

Hey Guys.

so the bulk of the bonfire frags have all been shipped. minus a few that I am holding a little longer, and a few replacements I need to ship out next week.

The good news is that I definitely have more contests to go around. I'd say at least 6-7 frags of equal size. So if there's anyone in line waiting for the word, please feel free to shoot me an email or message here and i can get you set up.
