Hi folks,
This is very short notice but does anyone have any corals they wouldn't mind giving me a bit of. And I really would like small bits, without any rock.
I can meet you at city west hotel on Friday from about 7-8 pm ( I am staying there the night)
Or on Saturday 4-6 pm at seahorse, or on the long mile road place, if that suits most better
I don't mind what sort of corals they are, but they need to be small.
I was thinking of a bit of ones from the families of zooanthids, button polyps , zoanthus, pluses coral, star polpys.
What sort of prices do I want to pay? Really I would like them FREE so you can feel good for help out another fellow reefer who has been dragged around ikea....
I do have one stone of about 1.5. Kg that someone can have, if they have a few bit from their tanks to give away.
So please who can help :-((
If you can't help please post you can't then this post will stay near the top for the day.
Thank you to all who read is and help out.
My number is 086 8732076
Thanks again. Jon

Hey jonlate,

Ill have a check tomorrow to see how much a courier will be to send a few softies like pom pom zenia, green star polyps, metallic star polyps and clove polyps up to ya. Kinda will be just a little bit of everything but they all grow pretty quick. Ill see if i have anything ill be able to ship them in. Most travel well.

In a couple of weeks ill have some Purple Stylophora if you would like a piece.

Thanks guys for your replys so far, especially the ones closest to me (Lakes1985 and Sukahn)
If I do get any other offers over the next two days and get to many for my tank, can I drop some into you David on the way home on Saturday as I will pass by monksland?
Thanks Shane as well, I am in no rush, it's just that I had to payback the wife with a visit to ikea, but thought I might craftily get something in for myself if there were any offers from Dublin. I don't mind waiting until your wife visits family either., and I can pick them up from her.

Sorry to hear about your koi losses Robert, hope you find some replacements soon.

Just to let you know that is not a torch.

It's from the lobophyillia family and it's nickname is cats eye.

Hi all,
Well I had no luck with corals this weekend, I did buy two small bits in seahorses and seemed to have left them on the counter. :angry:
I didn't realise they weren't in the bag until I got home. :( :angry:
I am not sure what to do about that yet, I have to phone them tomorrow.

So lakes1985 is it possible can I pick up that bit of cat eyes- trumpet-torch coral next week. I think so the wife has an eye appointment Tuesday pm, are you around then? Do you need a bit of live rock about 1.5 kg that I can off load onto you?
And thanks again Sukahn, if you are up nearer me on Saturday, tell me a time to be there and I will come over.
Can you both PM me your addresses.

It's strange, out of all the people who offered coral bits, both live the closest to me.
I think we need to boycot Dublin and stick together!
Thanks both and see you later.

Phoned SH yesterday and they are going too post me the coral down. I think that's great service, as they could have just said it was my fault not not checking before I left.
Let's hope they survive the post, at least it's warm out still.
It will be another month before I an get to Dublin again, so thanks for the offer Chris, I will let you know the dates I'm up when I know.
