    Has anyone ordered from Neptune's cove? I ordered some zoas and palys from there, I got my order a week ago and my polyps haven't opened yet. I'm pretty sure the zoa (single polyp) has died over the past week. My palys look "not dead" but haven't opened. I paid $50 for the laser scope zoa polyp, and $30 per polyp for the full spectrum 2 palys.
    My parameters are in check and stable. I have a bunch of other palys and zoas that r doing great and multiplying like crazy. All my other corals r doing great and growing also all my frags r growing good. I have a lot of lps &sps also along with shrooms and rics...all doing great.
    I drip acclimated them over about 3 hrs. And acclimated them to my lights. I should've asked but Im pretty sure they frag them after u order them and ship them the same day. For the price I paid I was really expecting healthy frags. I won't be ordering from there anymore.

    is this the neptunes cove out of Dallas ? If so, Im sorry to tell you , but steer clear of that place. Every time I have gone in there the tanks are nasty, and the fish look horrible. I will never go back.

    Try Austin Aqua Farms , Matt has some killer stuff

    dont feel bad about the drive. any good lfs that have nice corals are about a hour drive away. i usually just make a big circle and stop by all four shops to make it worth my while.
