    MWCF is closing the retail portion of their business. :(

    The last day is this Saturday.

    We made the two hour drive this morning and arrived 5 minutes after they opened the doors at 9:00 am.

    The place was packed! 25% off everything and 50% off all the small frags so they are $5 each!

    Scored some sweet corals including a couple Duncan Frags, a nice 3 head Zoa frag, A Plate coral (still looking for the right ID on it) and a multi-coral rock with a nice feather duster on it.

    I will post photos as soon as they are acclimated and placed in the tank.

    Sad to see such a high quality place close up shop. They will only be selling wholesale from now on.

    I suspect it will be well picked over by Saturday.

    I went this morning and walked out a happy customer...3 sps's, 15lbs of live sand, 16oz of kent m magnesium, battery operated pump, all for $50 bucks. It was crowded as heck, but worth the trip for me.
