    Aquatics and Exotics has offered a special buy for members participating in the contest. If you purchase the Zoa and/or the Acro you can add in a sweet hammer frag for only $20. When you PayPal please make sure to make a note on what your purchasing.

    We had to change the Zoa frag for the contest. Pic is of new coral. If you paid and do not like the new coral you can get a refund. The old coral is available for sale at aquatics and exotics in Waterloo, he just wasn’t able to make even frags.
