Heyyo,

I’ll keep this short and simple. Great website , customer service, shipping and packaging, and corals!

I especially love the descriptions of each stick on the website. The music references kill me!

Some pics from my last order:

Think this may be the push over the edge to finally place my first BC order later this month.

We’re these individual frags you chose or was it a battle box pack?

I’m kinda leaning towards the box myself just cause these will be the first SPS in the new tank and I’m not TOO picky and almost all BC corals are nice (everybody’s got that one they don’t like for whatever reason lol)

BC is like crack for stickheads. Once you order, you're going to want to keep going back.

Nice I was gonna order another box my self this weekend when he had the sale but missed the cutoff time. A battle box is def the way to go. Get a ton of value for the money you spend. That and everything he has is great.

Just curious... do any corals get marked as low or medium light, or is that H/M/L relative just to SPS?


Great question. It’s more a suggestion of tank placement actually. And absolutely! There are plenty of consider medium but not many in the low category, but sone Montis for sure

Thats good to know! I know some Acros do well with as much PAR as you can give em while others grow and color up better on the lower end of the lighting range.

BTW, speaking of that, do you ever test PAR in your systems? There has been a movement to put acros in the 250-350 range, while other still say the more the better.

Also curious.....Mine are in that 250-300 range and seem to be well.

Following. Haven’t seen anything Adam has said about specific par numbers. I know he almost never tests nutrients
I see par at 400-500 at most of my coral frags and mother colonies some pieces are higher and some lower but 450 is about the average I' d say. I have been paying a little more attention to phos now that I've been adding reef roids though. The last test a couple of days ago was 32 on that Hanna ULR phosphorous green thing
