    Hi got it for £50, there were quite a few people bidding on it.

    I thought it was quite a good price because there are some smaller lobos on fishmanfrags that are going for £65

    I think you did good for the size and colour.
    We had some very similar these ranged from 29-49 if my memory serves me right.
    Anything high colour or red costs more from the suppliers and because of this costs more to the customer.

    If it actually is that color when it comes I'll be really pleased with the price, the lfs where I get all my corals from has really high prices, most of my corals seem to cost around £50 from there.

    If we can ever help give us a shout, as we get all sorts. Waiting on a new camera at present then all lps and zoas should hit the website although we have some on there already.
    As I say for that colour and size I think you did good

    Don't know if you saw the message I put on the thread I started about my phyto smelling bad.

    There was a few frags I was interested in but I'm trying to get rid of some macro algae at the minute to make some more space.

    I was wondering if you can reserve corals and if so how long, I don't mind paying for them first.

    Yes that isnt a problem at all, we can hold them for a while not a problem 2-4 weeks. The best bet sometimes is to do this as some things fly out the door like 90% of our blue frags did.

    I missed the message mate as I use todays posts generally and post quite a bit on quite alot of threads. Have had a look now lol

    We currently have a lady which has bought three frags and we are holding her order until our zoa update is done as she wants to add these to her existing order.

    Ill keep you informed of when we need them gone by but we can easily hold them yes.

    If you ever want to know something about us or ask a question to get our full attension just pm us

    Thanks for that I'll go and have a look on your site now.

    Would you require payment up front ?

    to hold it for a long period then yes, if for a short while a week or so then a deposit can be left. For me to reserve them youll have to either email or pm as it has to be done from my end
