A big thank you to Teau Faletau from Ecological Reef Farms. They export and clear customs for you and for me as regular hobbyist. For fee, we can do one box or 50 boxes, the more boxes the quicker you get it. So tomorrow I pick up my children of the sea directly from the beautiful island of Tonga.
Two boxes. .... :)

The yellow would be nice to have in my display - or anyones display really. Hard to find a nice yellow. Fiji yellow leathers but I've yet to find a good source to try another one. I had one years ago but lost it with the rest of the tank while on vacation.

When you have time would love to see how they look after you acclimate them. I've been on a search to buy some nice soft corals to finish my display.

You are doing great.

I have to say that I would like to have one or two of those :) Well, one to start. Really nice soft coral I have to say and bet they can grow to a nice size.
The ones that were available, already sold, but I might be able to squeeze a frag, good-sized one like 2 in tall. I just got to see what's healthy in the next few days. I will p.m. you soon.

My children of the sea. Can you see, they have their father's eyes..... hahaha

They do, and they are really nice looking. We'll let the heat wave here in Cali clear and when you feel you have one shoot the PM. I'll send you one here in a day or two showing you my display and lets see if it fits in somewhere.

I know I keep saying it but you are really doing great and those look really nice.

Okay here's something new, this information with provided to me from the diver that collected our specimens. Carnation corals from Tonga that are identified as red carnation corals, ideal position for them is either on the side glass of your tank or upside down and the flow doesn't need to be 2 strong. Now the other ones that are like bright yellows solid Orange Carnation corals that we recently got, these prefer strong flow and they like to be upright or at a 45 degree angle some what, but not upside down or sideways on the glass, even though we've have them that way because of tank design

And these are all from Tonga
