I was overly excited about visiting DC this weekend with my family. I was planning a visit to Mr. Coral for weeks and here was my chance. Mr Corals pictures and specials have been very enticing. I had placed an order with him a while back. While that did not go as planned, I was still satisfied with the conclusion of that transaction. I debated placing another online order but I managed to resist. Here was my chance to visit, and I carefully planned on cleaning out his $10 tank. I was logging on to his site all the time this last few weeks.
I arrived at his store at about 3pm today.
I walked in hoping to meet Sonny but he wasn't in the store today. I met Ken, for those that don't know, Ken frags, bags and ships all your orders. Certainly most of them. Nice guy, I was at the store a while so we chatted about lights and such while I went over the frag tanks with a fine tooth comb.
I picked up about 11 frags, most in the $10 category but several for more $$. The SPS I got are really really cool and I like the zoas I picked out also. Everything is still in the baggies in my cooler with a warm towel keeping them warm, while I am still at the hotel in DC. I go home tomorrow and I'm not sure if I should open the bags to give some air to the frags and re-pack them or what.
I was disappointed at the selection, I was hoping for more but they are truly closing up the $10 section. And the frags looked better in pics, the tanks were not in the greatest shape. The Ebay frags were REALLY sweet. I mean really! Clean, large size, healthy frags. OF course there was one frag tank that was Sonny's. And of course I wanted what was in it.
Chalices are not my thing but boy that gold chalice is to die for!
I cajoled Ken into letting me take a picture of him holding my loot cooler.
And I totally forgot to ask for my Easter special deal. They're advertising 1 free coral for every $35 spent.
