    Hey Guys

    I have seen my sun coral slipping slowly the last month or so and decided that I do not have enough experience or time to look after it properly...

    It still has allot of polyps left, only lost about 3-4 around the rim..the rest still extend fully.. The coral is attached to a bi-valve of some sort making it really interesting ;)

    So make me an offer of frags or cash...This is only availible to PTA and JHB. I don't have the time to organise shipping ect..

    This is what it looked like 4 months ago

    This was taken a week or two ago.. see it in the right corner

    Well these guys usually go for aorund R500 in the LFS around me...
    So the price should not be too far below that...but I'm felxible and not in a big hurry..

    Would prefer a few frags though ;)

    Jip, caught all my shrimp and half a dozen bristle worms, but the crab is a smart bugger.. Trick is to put it as close to where the crab hides as possible..

    Dude I need to atleast be able to buy another coral in its place...
    And losing 3 polyps is hardly dying. That pic is after feeding.
    I just don't have the time to sit and feed each polyp at this stage...

    So at least R250 then or a few frags...

    got my sun for R200;)

    guys ive seen his sun coral, and he opens more than mine, so the guy that buys it can wont struggle with feeding him, mine only opens 24hoo at night and its crap to feed it at that time.

    so i would say R250 is a bargain

    That was proabbly from Ferdie right ;)

    I went on the price I saw at that "other place"...

    Don't you have frags to trade man? two sun corals are always better than one in my mind ;)

    BTW remeber to PM me direcitons for Saterday!! The crab is still awall though...Any ideas on how to catch hom apart from the bottle method?
