Not sure if this is the right place to post this or not.

Im still a little ways from needing this, but I thought I'd get some insight in the meantime. I want to buy this;


Being winter up here in Canada, will it "arive alive" in the like 10+ days to ship it up here?

Or am I better off to try and get some scrapings from local reefers to start populating coraline? Or perhaps a bit of live rock from the LFS to seed? Starting off with marco rocks, I'd like to be as pest free as possible.

Thanks in advance.

I used this and didn't get results, months later when I started monitoring and maintaining my calcium did I start to get coraline algae. Coincidence...?
Just make sure your calcium is in th 400 range and either use this product or get snails and frags that have coraline algae with patience you'll get results
