From 2012 to 2021...found one of many stickers from 10 yrs ago...BC have always had a sacred place in my darkside of SPS...lol...I still remember my first battlebox contemplation asking Adam if he would discount the box and he said “sure thing” like the next hour. It was history from there on. I’ve lost count of the Battle Boxes since 2012. At one point we even talked about BattleTanks...ha!

Just recently I started a new set-up after 3 or so offline years and a lot of real estate will be Battle Islands along with Battle Tiles for sure! I’ve remain an obsessive troller of BC throughout all these years and couldn’t wait to pick up the battle boxes at the local fed-ex recently...


Now I won’t talk about our most recent arrangements as it definitely butterflies me that he still remembers me after all these years and gave me special privileges but I will forever be gracious for his sps kindness! I’m blown away at the most recent orders....I’m a careless about sps Name Collector but the colors, growth structures, coralites, formations and variety of sps is what makes it euphoric to me...the two most recent boxes exceeds all those needs. I couldn’t tell you which is which now as they went into the tank without any tags by me but that’s the fun part which is to guess there’s name as they colonize and mature into coloinies...but dem...they all look super amazing even as Frags!

Congrats Adam and don’t forget to send me another link if you can...already planning for history to repeat itself...and keep feeding the addiction!

Welp ive been awaiting the day to delve into more sps and I guess today is the day. Adam my order is incoming lol

Whats everyone's recommendations for the hardy ones?
Based on the progress of this thread I'd say maybe wait for the sale! ;) And honestly for your question, he has tons. Adam's colonies are all acros he's had for years and if they are iffy he normally won't sell them. He would probably give the best descriptions of his best mix of hardy ones!

But for the sake of conversation, if we're making top 5 lists here, these are mine in no particular order or hardiness (just love these guys):

1. Aquaticman
2. Skinny Love
3. Bubblebath Unicorn
4. Spainbow
5. Rainbowbrite Tenuis

I don't have quite the history some folks have. My first order was in 2018. I remember feeling like I had ordered the Cadillac of corals that day.

I seem to be missing a few boxes. I probably gave them to a friend who ships out corals occasionally.

Congrats Adam.... top notch customer service, not surprising to hear about this milestone. A recent move made me purge everything, so this trusty tool is my only evidence hahaha

Your battle brushes, lol. i wasn't very familiar with your "brand" and while looking for something for general cleaning i ran across an article or reference to your battle brushes, maybe it was a background story on why you give them out. I can't remember exactly. I pulled a clean brush out of a gun cleaning kit i had laying around, now i always have one near the tanks. Anyway that led me to check out your webpage and have been keeping tabs on your coral updates ever since. Love the battle boxes. And every box i have ordered from you has been great.

here's the battlebrush story from the website.

The battlebrush is amazing!

Anyway, to get things rolling I'd love to hear what was it about Battlecorals that made you decide to make your very first purchase? Whatever point in the time line that happened to be. And let's keep this thread up top for all to see. You know what you have to do to help us distill the fray.
I'm late to the party I know, but your brand caught my attention when I was learning how to reef with BRS. From there, I waited until I had a tank ready for SPS.

I'll keep coming back because quality and service are top notch. I also just think you're a standup guy after seeing you represent yourself in interviews. I think you're an inspiration to many, especially me. I am glad I can purchase your coral.

So here's to 10 years - may your success continue! Cheers!

I have a couple. I keep all of the stickers of the corals I buy or products I use and put them on the brute. I absolutely love Battlecorals. I'm definitely going to be spending a lot more money here. The service is unparalleled compared to what I've experienced before.
