Hi guys I've got a few frags I'm looking to swap if anyone is interested, one easy sps frag ( forest fire montipora digitata) and quite a few bits of kenya tree, I'm not looking for anything specific, anything really you want to swap let me know and we'll work it out, I'm happy to post and we each cover the cost of postage to send our parcels to each other so no o one is out of pocket, the camera didn't take a pic if the sps frag very well so I took a pic of the colony so you can see it better, this colony is not for swap or sale though

Hi,
I have some GSP mini colony (5cm diameter) see pic if interested. I have Kenya tree, but would be interested in the forest fire if you are up for swap. I’m in Hertfordshire or can do post? Don’t have heat pack, but GSP seems indestructible, ont know about SPS though?

Hi I have some gsp aswell but I wouldn't mind some more so would be happy to send you the forest fire frag as a swap, to be honest I haven't sent corals by post before but I would still put a heat pad in just to be safe, if your happy to take the risk of how it arrives I am aswell for yours, I was thinking of posting it inside a zip lock bag with some damp paper towel some tank water and a small heat pad inside a padded envelope next day delivery, how does that sound to you?

Happy to try. Don’t have heat pack, but can buy some. Will take a few days though. Have posted GSP before in jiffy envelope in bag with some water so stays damp. Alternatively can use small container with more water. I’ll pm you when I have heat packs

That sounds good to me mate, I found some 24hour heat packs in a chemist designed for back pain if it helps, no rush either man just let me know when your ready and I'll get it posted

Same as before, just pay the postage. Will make some clippings tonight and post the "frags" pictures on here.
I'm planning on putting the Red Grape on a small piece of rubble to post.
Wouldn't mind another go with the Caulerpa you have (Saw Blade?)

Thanks:

@DUSTYBOY272 @Amo Manik
Guys, I have an issue with my tank at the moment. Have had a series of fish, invert and coral losses. I'm not sure what the cause is so will for now not be sending these out. I dont think that the Macro is the issue but would rather not contaminate anyone's tank


Apologies, hopefully I can turn this round soon

Thanks:
