    mail order

    anyone use mail order companies to buy corals? any reccomendations?
    they generally seem cheaper but i'm a bit wary as you don't see the actual item. do the corals really post ok?
    saw a branching hammer frag for a tenner from mailordercorals and cool corals sometimes have some nice looking zoas.

    I would recommend reefworks and fishman frags

    I got a green frogspawn for my 30th bday and I still have it over a year later - well packaged from fishman frags -

    I am thinking of buying some frags from both soon so if you want to club together on an order that would help keep the postage down.

    I have received frags from probably a hundred people and to be honest in general they survive well. There is the odd occassion that corals dont make it but this is normally down to bad packaging rather than anything else.

    mail order

    Mail order for me has been just fine.
    2 things,beware of ebay sellers who show brightly coloured corals on the ad usually with the pic taken under high actinic or photoshopped,and don't buy xenia[pulse coral] because it's a really bad traveller.

    also take a look at zoaphoria.co.uk as they seem to get good reports on various other forums.
