    Notes:
    This massive table top acro will make a beautiful centre piece for any sps aquarium. The coral is very hardy for sps and is in perfect health. Feel free to bring a water sample so that we can compare parameters, as once the coral is in your possession, I can obviously not refund your money should the coral perish. Familiarise yourself with the correct way of acclimatising corals, as my way is unconventional, and I will not recommend it. ​

    Sorry guys........ I simply don't know how to pack something like this without damaging it. It will roll around during shipping. If anyone has some good ideas on how to ship... please let me know.

    Hi Mudshark , obviously the right size bag with water (you dont need a hell of a lot for SPS), a big enough poly box stuffed with newspaper to keep it stable (also helps with insulation)

    OK... that doesn't sound too difficult.

    @ East London guys, where can I get large polystyrene boxes in Vincent?

    It would really be a pity to break this up, as it's grown into the classical tabletop shape as you see it in nature. It would end up a really messy break as this is a very hard type of acro. I have another faster growing one that is much softer and easy to split.
