    Every one of my frags just came in on the little plug things. I don't have holes all over my reef I can stick these things into. How do I get the bottom off of them?!:dft007:

    try using a pier of side cutter, but I would rather just reduce the size of the plug and not cut the coral off of the plug.

    Or you could putty them down, then you wouldn't have to cut them down or off.;)

    Yeah, the big huge golf tees. I was able to cut the ends off. It was kinda overkill for them, since most of them are only 1/4" size. :p
    They sent me crap I didn't order and didn't send me some of what I ordered. Half of what they did send's got the bones sticking out.
    I was supposed to get a blue or pink Lobo, and ended up with an ugly red acan. (I think... It's in such bad shape, it's hard to tell.)

    I think you should complain and change shops. Which online store did you buy from?

    saltycritters. I don't mind about the $5 frags being crummy, but I paid $15 for the lobo, and it was supposed to be blue or pink (can't remember which), (I think they sent an ugly red acan instead). I think one thing that's all closed up is the elegance. Not too sure yet. What is the red one in the pic attached? The one with the bones sticking out.

    In that case you should let them know that you want what you order. It really sucks when you have to wait for something, just to find out its not what you ordered.:(

    They still have the pink heart shaped one, but I wouldn't count on them actually sending it to you. :)

    I'll make a new video later of the tank. I'm hoping some of these things open up.

    It makes me mad when you buy a pretty florescent green tinted coral, and whatever it is the unscrupulous vendor puts on them comes off in a week or two, and you're stuck with some ugly brown thing. :cursing:
