    That's a nice one JJ. Can't help but ask; where'd you order it from?

    fragalot, i got it for 85.00 which is a steal! because locally here in n.s. its 225.00 each..

    i would just recommend only ordering that though so that it is shipped better then mine to avoid the issues i had.

    Wow that is a steal!

    Was shipping to the airport, or overnighted?

    Sweet looking coral Jess! What is the name of that one? What kind of light and feeding requirements does it have?

    thanks guys!

    Carrie its fed ex overnight to your door and over 300 its free shipping. its a nice coral so the nightly feeding is bringing it around. i cant wait for it to fully expand it should be a good size

    scientific name
    Acanthophyllia deshayesiana, people call them donuts,scolys etc.its an LPS coral that requires feeding otherwise in 12months you will see it start to not do well. Also requires decent lighting-Mine is under 4 t5s.

    here is locally what you would get it regular price if you wanted to pick one up
