    I'm selling these frags (or rather mini colonies), had plans to create a mono specific SPS cube....but now have other ideas. Been nursing these pieces for about two years...came from a colony I had from my previous set-up.

    This is what it will look like once your params are in check, has a slight tabling kinda growth and is a med paced grower and easy to keep.

    Oh, and please note I've advertised these via other mediums as well. :)

    Heya, I stated...that I will ship at buyers expense, though will be bit costly 'cause of the amount of packaging and water weight involved. So can ship airport to airport same day....but will be costly just for one item.

    Hi @keegz001, I am saying this not to be nasty or hinder/break any dreams of yours. The Acropora group of SPS corals are one of the most hardest corals to keep. You need VERY stable water conditions, lighting that has to be sufficient, and flow that is not laminar in nature. These, followed by water nutrient levels that need to be quite low, in fact Acropoora like very low PO4 systems and sufficient Ca for growth (not to mention your trace elements), sufficient Alk and Mg and a non fluctuating pH and temperature.

    You will read so much in terms of what is necessary for these corals, but stability and GOOD water quality is a must.
    Why not wait for the get together/meeting on the 8th December, there will be some great minds there, who have had years experience in keeping SPS (no, I am not one, fail dismally with Acropora), and chat to them, learn and be patient, spare yourself heartache and disappointment.

    In the mean time read thses articles:

    Reef Addicts - Acropora - Proper care yields the best results
