    Have you ever had one of these moment? You order something online and are all excited about the delivery. The day comes... package delivered. You rush home in a frenzy, open the box.

    And immediately know something isn't right. Not even close. Yup, that is my latest Battlebox.

    The first thing I notice is that there weren't nearly the number of pieces of coral that there were supposed to be. The confusion grows as I know immediately some pieces that were supposed to be in the box were not.

    I'm confused by something else, too... Some of these pieces are darn near mini colonies! This is my 3rd Battlebox and the sizes of the pieces in this one are much large than any I had received before. Because, of course they are.

    How is it my order can be completely messed up, and yet I am beyond thrilled? My biggest concern at this point is that he crossed up shipping boxes and that someone else will be disappointed!

    Adam, I'm not sure how you did it (and I hope it isn't crossed up shipping boxes) but somehow you managed to send me what I wanted instead of what I asked for!

    Oh... other than no Battlebrush. :confused: ;)

    Not sure why, but my OCD is screaming for someone to straighten the magnet on the frag rack. Please...

    Otherwise, that's awesome! :)

    @Brew12 -- Will you post a list of what you got? It's always hard to tell in pics without names, with the names it's a little easier to pinpoint whats what. This is very useful information for poor students who are thinking about throwing a bunch of money into corals :D

    Yes, ahem, that appears to be MY (cough cough) Battle Box, kind sir. If you would be a good fellow and just forward to the following address. . . do hope you find yours. Have a pleasant day.

    Great pieces!

    I kept all the bags so I still have the names. Unfortunately, I'm not 100% sure of which corals came out of which bags. I thought I had taken a picture of each of them while unpacking with my phone but my wet hands may not have worked as well as hoped. I only ended up with a few pics.

    Ok.. Ok!!! I'll put the ones I am sure of and edit to add the rest later.

    Serpentman Soli
    Lemon Hammer
    Teen Wolf
    Pink Jade
    Miyagi Tort
    Sniper Blue
    PC Rainbow
    Soft Rainbow Milli
    Pink Tip Tricolor

    So I'm missing the last 3. One of them was a really long name with "old birdsnest" in it. I'll have to double check the last 2.
    Edit:
    The final corals were....
    Mr Pacman
    Really old fosters birdnest purple/yellow
    Rainbow Stylo

    And let me tell you, that Rainbow Stylo looked absolutely amazing since I unpacked it. The colors are unbelievable!

    Can say I am happy with Adams picks and will do another box in a few months. Was great to deal with and put up with me changing my mind and my barrage of emails.
