First Order with Cultivated Reef

Recommended Posts

Caravanshaka

I wanted to share my experience with Holly at Cultivated reef now that it has been about a week since I got my order.

 

Part of my order included a 6 frag SPS frag pack, which I included in the notes a list of about 6 items I would love to have. shortly after I placed the order, Holly replied and thanked me for the order, and let me know that she could do 4 of those 6 in the frag pack, and she would fill in the other 2 with a other items. I was happy to hear that a very discounted frag pack could include several items I was wanting.

 

Fast forward to the tuesday when I received the package...everything was well packaged and I was shocked at the size of a couple of the "frags". All but one of the SPS frags were multi-branched and at least 1", and the other one was still a great size. 3 of them came in well over 2" with multiple branches. the 2 other items from the SPS frag pack were more than I could ask for, with a very nice sized birds of paradise, and a large Milli that has awesome colors, though un-named.

 

Once dipped and acclimated, everything I got had polyp extension within an hour of being placed in the tank. Over the week, even with the SPS on my sandbed, I have gotten a little growth at the base, and colors have gotten a little deeper.

 

In conclusion, I am extremely happy with this order. Holly went above and beyond with communication, as well as frag selection, and everything was in great health when it arrived. Also, the Electric Myagi is just as awesome in person as the pictures suggest :)

 

Attaching a terrible iphone pic of what was received. you can see the size on a couple of the frags, and the colors aren't as good in this pic as they are in real life.

 

Thank you, Holly!

Oh that's easy :) You can just order a frag pack and in the checkout notes mention what you just wrote. But hold off another day or two and let's see what we can come up with for an extra good NR deal!

I especially like seeing the names on each bag, it really helps in identifying each frag

Yea especially with Holly,she tends to send a box of Crayola and it can get confusing in a good way :)

They sponsor it but arent coming , you would never be able to make it to her table because she would sell out so fast :) one of the nicest vendors/person to deal with and awesome corals . frags are always super generous in size and healthy
