High end acros, a large acan colony, and other frags.

Unfortunately life has gone in all the wrong directions in the last few months. I was just laid off from my job this morning, to add to my already enormous list of life stress. About 3 weeks ago my dosing pump burnt up the alk pump and I didn't catch it for probably 2 days. Crashed my tank, and I lost about 4k in most of my nicest acros. After the 5k in losses from aefw earlier this year, I've been pushed to the point of needing a break for a while. I apologize in advance for the potato quality photos, I will try to get out my DSLR and get some better photos later this week. I understand I won't get anywhere near the retail prices I picked the corals up for but I would really appreciate a little help recuperating some of the amount I've invested.

First up is a greened out multi branch jf homewrecker frag. I got this piece about 2 weeks before the crash, and it was one of 2 tenuis that survived (out of 13 total) It lost almost all color, but has returned to a bright yellow/green and the purple/blue tips are coming back in. I believe it will quickly return to its full rainbow of colors with some time and care in a healthy tank. Asking $400oboIMG_20181002_184729.thumb.jpg.60a10a2b721232c9d8b15ed586ecb389.jpg

Next is the LRO candy apple Bonita. Shows a green/gold base, pink and orange coralites with red polyps. I paid $400 for this chunk, would like to get $300 obo. IMG_20181002_184822.thumb.jpg.432f420d49b09555da086cd1cbc18ab2.jpg

Next is an orange acan colony I saved about 8 months ago. It was about 2/3 it's current size, and color was quite washed-out. It's got some yellow coming in on a few polyps now, could turn out really cool. Easily 40+ heads, about 4" across. Asking $125 oboIMG_20181002_184450.thumb.jpg.3f6334d4900f02ac881e6dae6669a217.jpgIMG_20181002_183948.thumb.jpg.5ddb601db10490b038c5a8595f20506d.jpg

Next is a jf devils brew favia. Really nice colors, 30+ eyes. $75obo

Oh man - sorry to hear Taylor. I was just thinking that we hadn’t heard from you in a while and was going to shoot you a note. Hope things turn around for you soon. GLWS. 

It's been rough, but ill get it figured out. There's always a light at the end of the tunnel.

Well at least you know you have company - lost all of my SPS to what appears to be a weird heavy metal contamination. Not that I had a collection anywhere near yours 😞

I saw some stuff about your crash. Sorry to hear man... My alk crashed to 4.7dkh when I caught it.  I had already lost about 50% of my acros. Calcium spiked to 710. Ever since I brought things back to where they need to be most of my corals are doing great. Out of the 44 acros I had in the tank before, I think I have 14 now. Lost a jf beach bum monti, and some other high end sps too. I still have a few skeletons in my tank from some pieces I was super proud of. Can't bring myself to remove them yet.

I'm not sure if I'm gonna get out of the hobby entirely for a little while, or if I'm just gonna take a break from acros. This piece right here is the one reason I can't decide. LolIMG_20180911_140413_726.thumb.jpg.4ba3f785fbe406f5cfab336982eebc4e.jpgIMG_20180927_173025.thumb.jpg.0c3bbee293e0a9aceca90dff3408ad05.jpg

If you sell this Let me know! I can see why you’re debating, it’s a sweet piece. I remember when you snipped it in auction lol


Sent while trying to get my next coral fix.....

Its only colored up more since I got it. Its the nicest rainbow wellso I've come across imo. It'd take a high offer to convince me to let it go. Lol.
