    Hi Reefers

    This is so close to being finished - but before you all burst with anticipation.

    Here are a list that is 80% finished.

    Can I make a suggestion please? I see all the corals and the prices but have NO clue what they are. Will it be extra work to add the names? Then at least I can research them before making a decision?

    Impossible :eek: - I use a unskilled (in marines) person to make this list and it take het 3 to 4 days per week ast present!! I would either have to do it myself or teach her, for her to be trained would take months and during that time this list would be a fulltime job for her and a part time one for me. You guy on this forum do not support me enough to pay her and my time / wages.

    So the only alternative would mean that I have to do this work and I do not have the time for that.:m27:

    OK cool I understand...I thought you get the corals on a list with names and then you can just copy the name to the picture. Would have been nice though.

    Yes seank :m12: :m12: :m12: ...... with me semi-retired, I am not keen to get dragged back into the day to day work @ Pet Stop again. I know myself once I start coming back into the day to day tasks I will just add on more and before I know it I am back into the rat race full time. :eek:

    Dexter - There is 2 problems
    1. no the suppliers are not that clued up and we regularly get corals with the wrong name or just a generic name attached to them.
    2. we receive up to 100 corals at one shot, in unmarked bags. So even if the pricelist was correct, a expert would still have to identify and mark them accordingly

    Not knocking Talita (my daughter) but she will never remember the names as I ramble them of when we unpack & price them, plus to train her will take a year easily. She is already busy training hard in how to invest in property my-way ;) AND doing 4 business courses so she can run a business proficiently.

    So to prevent Pet Stop misinforming you on this forum I will not allow them to add name AT PRESENT - But in the future it is on the cards ;)

    Honestly as long as you know the family into which a coral fits the care is usually similar. It doesn't matter if it's Echinopora or Echinophyllia or Pectinia or Mycedium or Oxypora...chalice-type corals all have basically the same needs. The same goes for brain/moon type corals and everything that vaguely looks like them...Blastomussa, Favia, Favites, Goniastrea, Acanthastrea, Lobophyllia, Symphyllia. Same thing for acroporids, same thing for Euphyllia, same thing for tree-type soft corals, same thing for leathers, zoas, etc.

    Most of the stuff that needs different care looks unique. For example free-living Goniopora, brightly coloured non-photosynthetic species, open brains...

    PS. Sent you a pm Moolis.
