My chaeto was fine. Dunno if it had pods with it or not. My tank was already swarming with them. I had so many my zoas were closing from pods trampling them. I still have thousands... it's crazy.

 

Anyway, I'll get a gorg frag to you as soon as finals are over. These next two weeks are finals... and then I get my masters. Celebratory frags for ya :)

Where do you live in NJ?

I happen to have made a few frags in my nano recently. they will be ready very soon (or depending on how much you want to wait).

what kinds of corals were you looking for?

Currently i have an older hollywood stunner chalice, green finger leather and freshly made orange-red monti cap and GSP frags.

By older i mean they have been in my tank for months and the fresh ones i made today(these will take a short while to be ready). I can also make a green monti cap frag if you want that one.

I figure that if I mail them with priority they will arrive in 1 day. definitely hardy corals (back when i originally got my 1st chalice frag it spent 3 days in shipment from california and was just fine when it got into my tank :) )

 

Oh i forgot you can't see where I am from, am from bergen county, in NJ as well. this is why shipping wont take long.

the hollywood stunner is basically like a monti cap. it grows outward with limited encrusting on rock. but unlike a monti cap it will create only one plate layer not milti-layered plates.

 

Obviously start both of the corals on the bottom, then maybe after a week or so if you see them doing ok, you could try moving them to middle level. idk how strong or weak your lighting is, but the chalice likes medium-lower light so if its intense LEDs and very bright, its best to keep the chalice towards the bottom. the finger leather can handle higher light so it should be fine in the middle level.

 

You dont really have to feed them or anything. later in your pico's life when you are feeding your crabs, etc... you will see that the chalice will eat the small particulate food floating around your tank.

 

Anything else you want to know about them? PM me with your info. I will try to send the corals out next week, or if you need s specific day of arrival, tell me.

awesome, thanks for the info. yeh the LEDs i have are pretty bright so ill end up finding a nice spot towards the bottom for the chalice, and the finger coral ill place towards the left backside
