Group Buy From Rc Rtom Member Copps

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

So I am currently searching for select Digitata frags and came across Copps (John Coppolino his Reefcentral Tank of the Month article) after inquiring with a few online vendors. While getting a price on a particular frag I want (ROAB Digitata), he mentioned if the purchase amounted to $300 bucks, it would be free shipping. Considering shipping is usually about $35-$40, I figured why not see if anyone here (SWFMAS) might be looking for some choice pieces at really good prices.

 

This is his PM to me on Reefcentral:

 

------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Sure Christian... you can check out this thread from last year... I have 26 of the 33 frags available from this thread... I do not have 2, 5, 8, 10, 16, 31, and 33.

 

http://reefcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2356580

 

I leave tomorrow for a work trip through next Friday the 23rd, so I will not be able to prep any frags before then. So if you want you could start a thread and put a deadline of the following Saturday the 24th if you like. I could then cut whatever frags that Sunday and get them healing for a week. Many things I already have mounted.

 

Thanks,

 

John

------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Let's go ahead and make the deadline, as he suggested, the 24th. You won't find frags like these in our area, and definitely not at these prices (Especially if we can get free shipping!!!). Clearly John's ability as a reefer is renown, and he even left feedback from prior dealings in that same thread on RC. Being a stay at home Dad, I can be here and ready to receive frags the moment they arrive, and my tank can house them well. I always recommend trying to pick up the frags while they are still bagged, but understand that everyone's schedule is different. If you want references about my tank, just ask Ron, Viet, Matt K., etc.

 

Thanks!

I do not frequent reef central, so I can't view it. Or I can make like 44 more posts, and they will let me, pretty sure that is not going to happen. Any other way you can post the list?

I am not sure how I can do that, mainly because each of the listings have pictures, and I am sure you'll want to see that.

 

Maybe Wayne knows a way around that?

1. CITR Red Dragon- A super unique Acro… I got mine directly from Tony at Coral in the Reef… a very unique growth form, showing some of the finest branches you'll see on an Acro with a beautiful color on top of it all. For those that have waited for the price to drop, now’s the time… 1 ½” to 2” $50 larger pieces available

2. Copps’ Aussie Azure stag- a STUNNING solid blue stag… this is just the second time I’ve offered this incredible piece… 1 ½” $150

4. Copps’ Orange Mary Monti- first time release… this monti is an amazing bright orange! After so many years hardcore into SPS it’s great to find things I’ve never seen before… grows just like the Tyree Bloody Mary… plating and encrusting. I assure hard core SPS guys will love this piece. ¾” $125

5. Copps’ 24 karat milli- Another first time release… it’s nearly impossible to find a true solid bright yellow Acropora… most with bright yellow have other colors, and most that are called all yellow are actually green. This is a solid yellow and even better it’s a milli! 1” $125

6. Bella’s Acro- Recently released… and another super unique growth piece… these days I get more excited over unique growth forms such as this, yet this is also a beautiful pink. 1 1/2” $60

8. Original 20K lokani- this guy grows slow but what a unique growth and beautiful color… a must have for the collection and great for lower light areas where other sps wouldn’t keep their color… 1” $60

13. Copps’ Blueberry Miyagi Tort- a beautiful piece that is a unique blue that is sort of teal as shown in the pic … a much more true blue than the original Cali “blue” tort (which is more purple)… 1” $65

ROAB_digitata.jpg

 

18. Bright Pink Hyacinthus Table- A bright pink table that LIVES! Wild tables like this are well-known for being very tough to adapt and keep, but this coral does well with good water quality and flow. 1” $40

180_rhcp_monti2.jpg

 

22. The Original Miyagi Tort- This name has been thrown around for years now, but this is the original Miyagi tort. This coral was bought years ago by local DC area reefer John Nguyen (va_reefman) who received the third TOTM on Reef Central way back in April 2002. We started calling him Mr. Miyagi because he groomed his corals like Mr. Miyagi with his bonsai trees. This gorgeous coral is actually probably A. austera, and is thick branching and light purple as shown under 10k/14k lighting, and shows dark purple with a green tint under 20k… 1 ½” $25

I apologize about missing the Monday mark, yesterday was an astoundingly annoying day, spending four hours I didn't want to give up with AT&T, so my Dad's business would go from paying $800 a month to a far more normal $315 a month. Anyways, I am compiling the official list today, to send to John (Copps). Again, I apologize for the delay.
