    I ordered 2 T5 tubes from BRS on the 1st. They were to be delivered on the 6th. I checked my UPS tracking Wednesday afternoon and saw that there was a delivery disruption due to the fact that the shipping tube was empty. UPS was supposed to contact BRS. I contacted BRS to let them know but have not heard beck from them. BTW, FedEx isn't any better.

    I would say this was largely incompetence, too. It was bad Apex programming to shut off my ATO.

    Super happy with my box. Give pretty long description of what kinds of coral I had, what I didn't have and some examples of things that would be cool. When they came in, some retained color well and some had browned out, as expected, but 2 weeks later, and they are starting to get some awesome color already and several have almost encrusted the glue. The Aussie Echinata came in kind of beat up, it fell out of the little protective cup and some of the coralites were mushed... but 2 weeks later and it looks like it is doing better than all of them! 'Sniper's Blue something or other' came out as rich and colorful as can be and I swear had full PE right when I placed it in my tank.

    I can't wait to see these things grow!

    From top left to right, then bottom left to right:
    Sniper's blue
    deep blue tenuis
    blueberry Nasuta
    Nilbog
    grape juice (back corner)
    bubblegum table
    Aussie Echinata
    Rainbow's army

    Looking good!

    I sadly have lost the lion's share of my BC corals over the past few months from a couple different issues, but I am on the long road to recovery and that Sniper's is at the top of my list!

    Looks good. My grape juice from BC grew to be one of my favorites. It developed several distinct colors in high light. Unfortunately lost it in the tank move.

    That’s super awesome Adam! Their demise was all my fault though. They came in healthy as can be. I do look forward to ordering from you again soon!

    I'm in the same boat. Have lost majority of my BC corals after a bout with AEFW and janky QT conditions. But, what you've got left are looking quite fine, I'm jealous!

    I don't have a Battle Box coming ,, I do have a few corals coming though :) ,, they will ship in a couple of weeks when my work schedule will allow me to be home to take delivery,,, a Battle box is in my future :)

    I do have a question ,,, what is the proper way to acclimate the corals once they have gone into the tank ,, moving then up to higher lighting? I have gone through some of the pages in this post,,, looks like some start the frags out on the sand bed ,, others put them on a frag rack on the sides of the tank ,,, this second option is what I usely do ,,, how long should the process take to get the corals moved up to where they will be mounted to the live rock?

    Here are the corals I received from Adam this morning. Aqatic-man, Pink floyd, Dayglow Milli, soft rainbow, Aussie echinata and vivids rainbow delight. The echinata looks a little rough but I hope I can get it back look good.

    I got the same enchinata in November and mine looked rough also when it came in, but it was the quickest to rebound. now its looking really nice.
