    Hi

    Looking for a Green Montipora Plate Coral (Montipora capricornus)
    Only need it by December 2010

    It will be the center peace for my dad's tank.
    This will be difficult but must have the same or more plates on it.(pic)
    [​IMG]

    Size (if you would fit it tight in a box) 40cmLx40cmHx40cmW
    If you find one please don't squeeze it in:lol: that is only to describe the size of the monti.

    Will use my couriers to pic it up, must be properly packed, don't want it to be damage even if you have to use filter matting and wrap it 5x around the BIG BAG with out air bubles in it.

    I'm from Namibia and don't need a permit to get it!! (no permits for coral and LR)

    Thanks in advance
    So mail me your price.
    Jacques

    I don't think you find a monti that big in a pet shop, you will have better luck from a fellow reefer. Try post in the wanted section, I know of a few that have been sold at that size this year already.

    Thanks for the replies!

    In what price range will it be less than R5000.00 or much more, just to get an idea.

    If you willing to pay that much, then speak to someone on the forum called Adee. He has huge ones.

    Just some advice to save you money. These corals grow so fast that I would rather buy a cheaper, smaller one. Mine grow at least 3 or 4cm's a month.
