  • Trading frags

    Just wondered, as it seems you fellas in the US get the pick of the SPS then the left overs are sent to us here in the UK

    This is one of our BEST sellers of acros in the UK (luckily 10 minutes from my house!) and as you can see the colours are nothing like the ones we see on US sites

    http://www.acropora-house.co.uk/sps.asp

    Is it possible to send frags from the US to the UK or wouldnt they survive the trip ? and also is it allowed with US law and finally would anyone be willing to sell a couple of frags that I could grow up and pass frags onto other Zeo reefers here in the UK

    Alot to ask i know but it seems we have a good bunch of guys (and girls?) here, and as the saying goes...if you dont ask, you dont get.

    Cheers

    Ga
    (hopeful UK reefer!)

    PS Theres no queue for Tunze stuff over here so if anyone wants to order the new controller etc the UK's the place to do it

        They only have "brown" corals across the pond? Looks like an opportunity for Zeo and Aquaconnect/Phoenix bulbs.
        I am out there, and loving every minute of it!

        Out of the closet, that is. The Zeo closet.

          I buy all my online stuff from a guy called Steve at Coral Garden, his site is

          http://www.coralgarden.co.uk/

          Really helpful guy and speed of delivery is amazing, i ordered a stream and 7095 pump on a friday night and got my stuff delivered at work Tuesday afternoon.

          If you want to speak to him he is on a little UK forum here:

          http://www.reefpark.19a.net/forums/index.php?act=idx

          send him a pm and he'll reply same day usually and i know he does overseas orders.

          Hope posting these links is okay with everyone, if not apologies and feel free to remove them, just that i know you guys stateside are having problems with Tunze orders lately.

          Cheers

            Hi Nick,

            Thanks for the offer, ill take you up on that when your ready, as for shipping, well to the amount ive paid for what would be 'run of the mill' corals to you guys, paying shipping for "exclusive" corals would be well worth it IMO

            Cheers mate

                Ga, depends on where you shop in the UK. There are a few shops that from time to time get decent Fiji stock in. Unfortunately due to the flights to the UK its difficult to obtain stock from Fiji which has the colour.

                Plenty of frags down south

                If anyone wants any Tunze gear for the US just ask. My company exports all over the world.

                  wouldnt it be 220v? since we use 110v here wouldnt we have to get some type of something to convert it over to 110v?

                    Good point, but from what I understand the controller is compatible with 110v. I would of course check first, but due to the $ > £ it doesnt work out in your favour
