Torches - there where 2 tanks of these 2 and 3 headed colonies

Thanks Divott

next time I go, I will contribute a post about 1 specific shop
this shop only has 2 tanks, both saltwater, limited dry goods
but its the shop that I have purchased my last 7 SPS frags

the largest tank is a 1 metre cube - and is a SPS display
the other tank last time I was there had probably 20 different types of SPS frags and at least 3 or 4 pieces of each type (so good choices)

hey steve what are prices like over there? and what quality of corals do they get in China?

I have heard that Japan gets all the premium stuff and then the leftovers go to the US...

I appreciate you bringing it back up, this is a great thread. It's not too often you get a street-level view of China like this from the states.
