SPS sources around Manila

Postby Fugu » Sun Oct 30, 2005 4:09 pm

Is it hard to find SPS at lfs around Manila? I am curious what they sell there since Philippine corals are just as good as any Indo-Pacific corals being sold here.

once in a while, available at cartimar. not frags, grown ones! i think they do not stock too many, because they die easily.

That's sad and unfortunately, they sell those large coral colonies of those dead corals at lfs here too...

pag manila sources ang SPS ko, lalabas eh, malalaki na! makapag-adjust pa kaya sila in captivity? do you suggest that we frag it immediately? parang mas malaki pa ang chance mabuhay nung maliit na frag kesa un sa malaking colony eh....?

It's all about water quality and lighting. As long as you acclimatize them slowly, they'll be fine.
