Got our BIG @TeamAquaSD shipment in today! Acclimated and kept lights about 30% max, so no good pics to share today. The packing is spot on with the tin clips vs. rubber bands. Heat packs were adequate given our weird spring cold weather here in NC. Everything looks pretty darn good so far. Especially that centerpiece gold wall hammer! :star-struck:

We need pics tomorrow! I have a wall hammer from them that a love. Walls seem hit or miss sometimes but this one is adding new tissue and growing!

Not professional quality photos but I made a quick album here of some of the corals (edit: didn't realize google makes you sign in to view the album! sorry guys. uploading it here for easy viewing)

No editing; 35% reef lighting, supplemented with ambient natural sunlight!

Those all look good. My photos are always terrible even with a lenses to blue correct!

Looks like you got a little bit of everything. Makes me wish I had gotten one of those buttons scolys. The Duncan colony is cool and that wall hammer is awesome!

@AquaSD And @TeamAquaSD I got my order today! Thank you! All my euphyllia are settling in.

20240426_164530.jpg

These 3 when I first put them in. Very nice.

20240426_164536.jpg

These 2 doubles right when I put them in.

20240426_164602.jpg

The one in the middle right when I put it in.

Now the other thing I got was an Aussie yellow leather and I knew it looked big but it is huge!!!! I wanted to mount it to my wall with magnets bc I'm running out if real estate on my rock and floor. So I mounted it when it was deflated and angry and went back to work.
20240426_164526.jpg

That looked fine. I thought it would be fine. I came home and it was so big it was touching the frogspawn down below!!!!! So I was like shoot gotta move it. I've also realized it may be too big to hold its own weight sideways.

So this is it after I have touched it and it is semi angry. It is still bug in this pic but much bigger when happy. I think I'm going to have to move something else and mount it on the rockwork and something else on the walls.

Thanks for an awesome order as always! Also thanks for giving me the problem of tooooooo big of a coral! What a problem to have!!!
