I received my first battlebox today. Without a doubt Adam went above and beyond my wildest expectations. After Temperature acclamation and dip I put them in my tank and within 30 minutes almost all of them had polyp extension. I received:

Rainbow Brite
Catapult Fireball
Miss Scarlett
Hyperberry
Bohemia
Arizona Sunshine Milli
Nero

Another first BattleBox recipient here and oh me oh my was I pleasantly surprised. Even after reading nearly every post in this thread, I was not fully prepared for what would show up at my doorstep. First off, the customer service was awesome. Adam reached out to me in about 30 minutes after I placed my order and after a few emails back and forth regarding shipping dates and coral preferences (I had none, other than that I wanted what I didn't already have, which was only like 4 things).

Second what I received were frags and there were FRAGS! Some of these were very large compared to the standard stick you see in stores. The colors are outstanding! Seriously impressed.

Here's What I received (I only ordered 4; photos should be in order & were taken 5 minutes after putting them in tank):
1. Magic Wand
2. Lemon Peel
3. Poison Envy
4. Bohemia
5. Cherry Blossom
6. Rainbow Melon Teni

Nice! My magic wand is the fastest grower in my tank right now.

First BattleBox should arrive on Tuesday! Leaving selections in Adam’s hands, let him know what I have and preference on type.

I like that encrusting and birds nest aren’t selected unless requested and that he’s not just gonna load the order up with a bunch of green frags. Shows he cares about how his corals are going to look in people’s tanks!

Got mine as well! Cleanliness and quality/professionalism second to none.

Great looking pack, BattleCorals is a pleasure to deal with. Is that tank the same one you were fighting flatworms? If so, looks like you shouldn't have that problem again with dry rock and clean, aquacultured corals :)

yes, I had to nuke it. 100% new and sterile.... lost 80% of the livestock to the flatworms and more so, the flatworm medications.

Few shots from my first battlebox, ordered a second box yesterday! The forest fire Monti is one of my favorites! Personally I wouldn’t have picked it because I had an orange and a green digi BUT very happy I left my order in Adam’s capable hands.

Received my first box today. Adam was very communicative and helped me pick some hardy sps (my firsts).

Things were packed well and the preprinted label is nice. I ordered 8 but got 9 pieces. Pictures taken a few minutes after placed in tank.
