    so i'm putting the finishing touches on my new little tank.

    i have fragged the frags... :) and starting out with 1" frags for myself. everything else needs a new home.

    i'll let these go for cheap, or i'll trade for something i don't have, or something that i'm still looking for.
    i'll trade for : oregon blue tort frag, ORA roscoes blue frag, cool zoas? blastomussa, micromussa, ricordea yuma, cool looking favia? crocea clam)


    for sale or for trade:

    - red acrolpora millepora - multiple small frags or small colony available. (still recovering from browning out after i shocked it with new lights)
    - yellow acropora millepora - small frag available
    - ORA pink birdsnest various frags available, or small colony.
    - green'ish acropora turaki (encrusted frag plug)
    - meteor shower cyphastrea
    - Tyree auctioned edition purple war coral (small frag encrusting on plug) gone
    - green/purple duncan
    - orange crush acan +/- 10 polyps or smaller frag gone
    - fire & ice zoas (multiple frag plugs with multiple polyps)
    - pink palys, multiple frag plugs with multiple polyps
    - green with purple tips frogspawn (3 heads, and splitting) gone
    - rock with pink palys and blue/purple mushrooms (have been sitting in a bucket with low light, so their color has faded, buth they'll bounce right back :)
    - purple/blue mushrooms (multiple polyps available)


    i would prefer NOT to ship these, as that would only add needless complexity and costs to the transaction :)

    everything is best offer, i have no set price in mind. or trades, ofcourse.

    You really should post prices up so people get an idea of what to expect. Also pictures would help.

    prices... let's see, how does this sound?

    $10 for zoas, palys or mushrooms frags, $25 for the whole rock
    $20 for each SPS or LPS frag
    $40 for the millepora or ORA birdsnest colony
    $30 for the frogspawn
    $50 for the Tyree war coral

    i'll see what i can do for pictures when the lights are on tomorrow (but i's a small bowfront tank, and i have some focussing issues through the curved glass)

    Hmmm if you want to wait til the weekend, I'd probably go for the frogspawn, an acan frag, and a zoa frag or two (or rock). Need to get my tank cleaned up a little more before I start adding again.

    Pics would definitely help, especially with the SPS.

    The prices you're looking at for those are really close to the prices of some stores, but depending on the size, it could definitely be worth it (again pics).

    prices i posted are a rough guideline :) i'm willing to entertain any reasonable offer. or give a nice discount on multiple items.

    i moved some frags around in front on the side pane which is not curved, i should be able to get a few OK shots there :) i'm waiting for everything to stop being pissed at me and open their polyps :)

    in the meantime... here's a top-down shot of the meteor shower cyphastrea.

    keep in mind, all these pics were taken with a fairly white bulbb, no supplemental blue or actinic lighting.
    i have a 20.000K radium on order that should arrive any day now, i'm sure the colors will have more "pop" under that bulb :)


    that being said... here's the first one.

    the little notch that's missing is the tiny piece that i fragged off for myself, it has already encrusted over the cut.

    here is the "red" acropora millepora - small colony - again, a top-down shot, as it's in a spot that is hard to focus through the curved front pane.

    it's slowly regaining it's original color after being shocked, bleached and browned ;)

    i's fully encrusted over the rock it's on, it's approx 4" wide, and 4" tall (just eyeballing it, didn't measure)

    [​IMG]

    these are two small frags (well, one small frag, and one tiny frag) as you can see, they have been very busy.

    i have one more frag of this, a nice branch that's about 3" with about 7 or more growth tips (unfortunately, it's in a spot that i can't take a picture that's not blurred. it's mounted to a small piece of rubble rock.

    yellow acropora millepora (not actual frag, this is the one i'm keeping)
    i'll snap a picture of the other one in a little while when it extends its polyps again, because i moved it.
    basically, you'll get the frag disk, with a stump where i cut this one off, it's filly recovered and has encrusted over the cut part. unfortunatelt, it fell behind my rocks for a few days before i was able to get it out, so, it looks a bit beaten up right now :)

    sounds like a very good deal to me :)

    a picture of the turaki is coming in a few minutes :)

    here are the two good sized ORA pink birdsnest frags that i have. there are there smaller branches available too (not pictured). they get very bright pink in high light, more dark/purple pink in lower light (as you can see bu the pink side facing the MH bulb.
