I'm selling 5 different frags of my japanese pink nephtheas. I originally got a frag from a local reefer here as a "Koji Wada" japanese pink nephthea. I'm reluctant to sell these frags because the mother colony is one of my favorite corals of all time and I HAD to cut it because it grew way too large. I actually have to cut it again soon because it's almost in the path of the Nero pump. People who see my tank always say "WOW" when they see the 11 inch high colony.

All of these pieces were cut back in January of this year and have been growing on this rack since then. The smallest piece on the left is 3.5" extended depending on the time of day/flow cycle and my biggest piece is 4.25-4.5" tall.

Local curbside pickup only in the San Gabriel Valley, California. Not interested in shipping. My prices are relatively low for this size of frags because I keep seeing threads of this coral being "rare" + I want local reefers to experience this. Not interested in trades unless it's a hellfire torch or dragon soul torch.

A - $85 about 4". Notice the multitude of tiny branches coming off the trunk.

B - $100 - my largest piece w/ 2 main big branches

C - $80
D - $90
E - $70

Looks like I messed up my first "selling post" and didn't put the California prefix. Located in San Gabriel Valley, SoCal

A and E are currently pending.

No sorry I don't ship unfortunately. Cash only or only open to trade for dragon soul or hellfire torch.

All remaining frags are pending. Thanks!

To answer your question, I made "cages" using zip ties to hold them down to the plugs and placed them in low flow for about 3 weeks to make sure they stayed put. There's also a video somewhere that used the toothpick method that works as well.

B is available. Unfortunately I can only do pickup today (Thursday) or this upcoming Monday if anyone is located locally. PM me if interested. Thanks everyone for all the interest. Maybe in half a year when I have more chunky colonies I'll figure out a way to ship these.
