Do you glue animals to rocks? Are your corals overgrowing where you intend them to be? Someone somewhere likely would love to give them a home. This below thread intent is to help make sure all corals have a home.

BEER is not included, but I included clarifying photo because I can see many of us needing either 4 or 6 of these for a party set!! Also, if beer is not your thing, included close-up of the Skimmate label (tea) so you giggle instead of gag!
