    Thank you for your order with us. There are a few items on your list that I will need to cut before we can ship. They also should heal for a couple days before they are shipped. Would you mind if we wait until next week to ship this out?
    which was nice to know they care and want them to heal before shipping

    Oh, that is fun, something to look forward to next week-if you can stand to wait that long :)
    I just got my first order and it is very exciting!
    Even tho my frags are small it is sooo nice to see splashes of color, finally! The brown/purple rocks do get montonous eh?
    Make sure you put up some pictures-I love seeing what other people do.....

    Those will add a whole bunch of colors to your tank! Blastos are my favorites.

    That is just the way Greg is he really is an amazing guy.And the quality of his livestock is very impressive.great prices and nice size frags not those little scraps that some online retailers sell.

    They all look great! Make sure to put those blue zoas low in the tank, they usually don't do well in higher lighting.
