Hello all, while this is my first frag sale thread on R2R, I’ve sold on the “other board”, and through word of mouth and past customers for over 15 years with hundreds of reviews and 100% positive feedback. Do a search on my username and you’ll find many SPS frags linked to me through the years. Things have exploded in my 1300 gallon display and I’m ready to do a large fragging. All of these are colorful corals I’ve propagated for years that show colors developed in my 14K system. I sell large frags… no nubbers here… some are colony sized pieces I have available… I’ve been in the hobby hardcore over 30 years now and have spoken for reef clubs in over twenty states and at four past MACNA conferences. For pictures and a profile of my system here on R2R check here…


These are 100% captive propagated healthy pest free frags. I rarely get new pieces, but when I do I go through two levels of QT for months (I have a small QT tank before things go in my 70 gallon QT system). For many online places that bring in wild pieces regularly it’s nearly impossible for them to stay pest free. All photos are mine and of my system and of the coral colonies you’ll receive frags from. Please feel free to ask questions through PM. I am a hobbyist like you guys and realize the importance of trust, reputation, and service in the hobby. Simply put, I am old school and only ship large frags and orders I myself would be excited to receive…



SHIPPING : As I’ve done for years… $40 flat rate for UPS Next Day Air, and free for orders over $300.



PAYMENT: Payment is through Paypal. If you would like to order or have questions, please PM what you’d like and I’ll confirm your order before payment. Please confirm your shipping address and provide a phone number for the shipping label when you PM me.



Thanks so much,



Copps



Copps’ 24 Karat Milli- It’s nearly impossible to find a true solid bright yellow Acropora… this is a solid yellow and even better it’s a milli! 1 1/2” $125 2 ½” $250

Copps' King Tut- A gorgeous Acropora tutielensis I got wild years ago that has become a well-known coral. The growth form of this coral is amazing! A thick plating/tabling species with bright pink/purple tips... this coral is appreciated from close and far… photos say it all! 1 1/2" $75 3”-4” $150

And a shot recently of it spanning well over 2 feet wide in my 1300 (that’s a foot long ruler at the top)

Space Invader Pectinia- Having such a collection of angelfish I’m not too much of an LPS guy, but I love Pectinia as my angelfish leave them alone. From what I’ve seen by far the nicest Pectinia ever imported is the Space Invader… most sold on line are nubs… but I have nice 1 ½” pieces… with three examples in the bottom pic… 1 1/2” $150

Copps’ Bosque en el Cielo Stag- I’m a huge fan of staghorns and have an entire staghorn island in the 1300… it’s hard to find nice stags but I got this as a wild piece and it’s similar to the Tyree lime in the sky, with a deeper green and a brighter blue base… and a faster grower… 2” $50 3”-4” $80

What part of VA are you located.
Up in Northern VA in Loudoun County

What corals do you have left ? I am interested in several of these.
Thanks
I have everything as of right now... although large 24K millies may become an issue soon. Let me know what you're interested in.

Thanks,

Copps

Buy with confidence. That CalaCali acro has already turned into a basketball-sized colony in my tank like twice already lol. Been a while since I purchased but frags were generous and very healthy. I love the Hulk Milli too. Great seller!

As other have stated, buy with confidence. My two favorites from his collection are Copps’ Calacali Acro and 24K milli. I have bought plenty of frags from him over the last 10 years.

Thanks Jesse, and congrats on spelling "Calacali" correctly! This is my fastest growing Acro... named after the small village in the Andes mountains of Ecuador near my in-laws farm where I have many memories.
Top notch corals. Have any of them in my system. Buy with confidence.

Thanks boys! Looking forward to getting back to regular reef club meetings!

John that sounds like a totally made up story... I'm just kidding around.

Buy with confidence folks! I've known John for a bunch of years now from local meets, his pieces are always huge and super healthy, and he is absolutely one most passionate and knowledgable people in this hobby.
