How many tangs do you have in your pico tank?lol
I’ve got a Gem, Desjardini, Achilles, Purple, Lieutenant, possibly some more lol in my 6 foot 125. I’m trying to convince my fam to upgrade a tank mainly for them Bc I ‘accidentally’ got too many for such a small space but so far might switched to some sort of lagoon or peninsula tank in our basement. I really want a Gold powder or whatever it’s called and a unicorn and Naso and tomini but... oh I have a white tailed bristletooth also... lol I’m waiting on a bunch of corals I have coming in Monday I’m trying to sell and make some profit in hopes of being able to upgrade tanks since my equipment is all closer to 500 gal rated (except stand and sump) in which a larger tank would mean more euphyllia, possibly add a nem rock.

Any suggestions on selling coral? I’ve got a saw with a dremel as well as a little experience fragging but I’m leaning towards euphyllia Bc theyre my favorite and easier to frag? Lol not sure but it seemed simple the past couple times I’ve done it and the shipping etc etc. lots of questions tbh but

Gotcha gotcha... I don’t wanna price gouge per say but I do wanna ask for what it’s worth. I’ve been looking at business opportunities and how to formally sell stuff within reason. As part of the clubs I’d rather offer like you said cheap to support the hobby and get people interested rather than make a couple bucks. Still curious as to actually make do in this hobby. I’ve got people I can wholesale from and would love to add some competition to the already great Charlotte reef store options. :) honestly a lot of talk but it does peak my interest.

Out here WD was $100. We got the price down to $10. HomeWreckers were $275-$350. We started selling at $100. Other sellers followed suit. We have had a lot of monties 3 for $10 and $10 stix. Good luck!

there are a ton of non b&m stores in the carolinas. for the clubs sake, we'd ask you to be a sponsor if you're going to go the business route. gl with your ventures!

I missed "The Warped Tour" :-(
True story.. we were actually talking about some of us taking a trip to see you while on the warped tour. Lol

Do not underestimate us as we are a bunch of total reef nerds!
