Super shipments weekend!


Recommended Posts

bro peacemaker, you must go more shipments to understand the practice...if not...must learn from old birds....hehe...every session is a learning experience.....lol....quite fun ...wahahaha. how's your acquisition doing.....think next time must bring own tank, MH and wave maker and some food to entice the corals....lol...let's form a clan...wahaha

I agree... need to learn more from the old birds. I was considering to go down on time, but I thought I should give it more time for the polyps to open before selecting. Little did I know that the frags were first "selected" before waiting for the polyps to open. I always thought that if it's not in a bucket or a plastic bag, the corals should still be up for grabs. Oh well...

Fred, so anymore "catch" after I left? :eyebrow:

there is not much to learn from old bird actually lah.. The logic is very simple. FCFS. If you want to have first choice of selection, then make an extra effort to go early.

This "practise" had been going on for ages.. not just for reefing.. it happen for everywhere in the world. :nuke:

First we "talked" abt the Thai then we "talked" about our own local doing it...

For me I just take it with a pinch of salt.. if i'm late, i just wait in the queue.. that's all.. :peace:

In fact, yesterday's only GEM (Red on red zoas) is taken by someone who chooses it after everyone had "make" their choice. :kiss:

Just my 2 cts. B)

I guess that's how the system works. Experience gained. :eyebrow:

Nice meeting you, btw. ^_^

All this about FCFS only applies mainly to zoas rite? hahahaha...but others like SPS & LPS not so crazy rite?

Unfortunately, it apply to all. lol

In fact, these days the shipments are not as crazy as it used to be liao. Coz many had given up and some due to space constraint. :(

The turnout is probably 50% of it used to be.

So if you want to want to have the first pick of the corals. You need to help unpacked from the boxes and keep your fingers crossed the box you opened and gems you are looking for. :fear:
