Throw me a softie...?


Recommended Posts

I just my cleanup crew to my minibow today and they went straight to work. It will be another week or 2 before I order my soft coral pack from Phishybusiness and move on to the next stocking step.

I would like to know if my system can support coral though at this point, my levels are all acceptable, but I don't want to spend $140 on this pack for it to end up dead....Is anyone willing to send, regardless of size, some frag of a soft coral like a shroom or zoos or something so I can use it to test?

You could do what I did, go to the LFS and tell them that you want a single mushroom and don't want to spend a lot since it might die. I was able to get a nice purple one on a small piece of branch rock for 5$. The rock alone was worth that, plus I wanted purple mushrooms anyway. 5$ is cheaper than anyone could send you something and you get to hand pick your coral.
