It isn't ideal but GSP can be pretty bomb proof! I would suggest acclimatise it slowly as normal (float the bag to equalise temp etc). Then give it a few days and see how it goes. Although GSP can survive a lot it can also sulk quite a bit so may take a few days to open up.

Fingers crossed! (If it doesnt come around i have plenty of gsp - happy to send you some for the cost.of p&p!)

Thanks:

I think that overnight temp is too cold at the moment to ship corals without heatpack, but you may be lucky and the GSP survives after a few days sulking.

I have a light green version that I can post for a swap when temps are better.

speaking of acclimation of corals then peeps i have had a thought i dont know if i am barking mad or maybe even barking up the wrong tree lol but................... we float acclimate we also drip acclimate and yet thats all very well and good but what about lighting acclimation? i may even be daft but i have noticed over reading several post the last few days some light units also have acclimation settings :-)

You can get acclimatisation settings on lights bit i believe they are generally intended for when the lights are new to the tank (rather than for individual corals as the setting affects the whole tank). Personally i acclimate with lights off then introduce to the lit DT

Yeah that should be fine, might sulk for a little bit as others have said.


Hell when I had my tank running and fragged the GSP i damp posted it to a few members on here (in damp tissue only) looked a bit annoyed when it arrived but pulled through

Give it some more time, but agree it’s not looking too hopeful...

happy wife is happy life

Let me know if you like some of my light green version. Can 1st class post some next week as temps but too cold without heatpack. Happy to try a swap or so.


Old pic, but have this growing on back wall and can cut a mat off. Just use elastic band to stick to small rock and should adhere in a few days.
