I was in there a few days ago and had to grab a piece of that frogspawn myself! I have been very impressed with his shop so far.

...and the red Blastos and the neon green polyped acro and the stylophora. he really has a lot of nice stuff. The really cool thing is that he still has a lot of room for more.
Wanted: to set up a tank again.

So, Where are the pictures, where did they come from and how long before they can be fragged?

The problem is that Aquaworks had to get so many of those Aquacultured corals the last time and there were only so many people in the area interested in them. Of the 24 or so he got I would say he only sold 12 and most of them were to Phil, and 2 to me. The rest ended up dieing in his tank because it isn't a good setup to maintain sps long term and well I doubt he will spend that kind of money again to get as nice of stuff. You folks should have come on over an picked up at least one.

Its a shame he doesn't set up a tank devoted to that stuff becuase he does have the connections. But in the last 3 months i've seen half of all the acros he gets in eventually RTN or STN whatever you want to call it because they are in those tanks. If he doesn't get a seperate system set up I don't see getting too many other great shipments of acros in because of the lack of interest.

Tim is now putting the acros in the display tank to maintain color and health. Several of the last shipment were placed in that tank and colored back up. I bought two more last night.

I think he has seen the light.
