    Default Micro Plugs Available NOW.

    We designed this plug to be our low cost entry product. It was designed for the micro fragger that sells corals by the polyp. It taks up minimal space and is coned. This should help the end user with final placement.

    These are sold in 100 count packs for $15. That's right $.15 each. Shipping is $10 whether you order 100 or 1,000 or 10,000. Wholesale is available.

    Here is a few pics. We have a few thousand in stock right now and are making more every day. We also have plans for a micro plug holder. It will be textured like a donut with a plug hole like the Big Un. These will be available in about a month. They are both the newest product in our Basic line. These are great for starter frags or nursery corals. Fill up your egg crae and just let the coral grow across the plug. Remove the plug for sale or use it to seed another batch of plugs.

    Here is a picture of the Micro Plugs next to our Frag Station plug. They are identical in weight and the platform is just a tad smaller. The coned plug is the Micro.

    No, they do not. The micro plug is made for the egg crate and acrylic frag holders. They do fit in the Frag Station but not the best. I will take some pictures when I have some time to show how they sit. If I designed the Frag Stations to hold these flush they would not securely hold our Frag Station Plugs and Disks. I may be able to do a small modification to any new Frag Station But that would increase the time it takes to make them increasing the cost. Believe it or not we are trying to make our products as affordable as we can. The Frag Station was designed to be a temporary place to hold your plugs until you are ready to place them in your rockwork or sell the frag. It has evolved to do a lot more but the main purpose is to hold your plugs.


    That being said. We will be making holders similar to the Big Uns but smaller and without texture. They will sit flush in these. But I need to make the tool and figure out the process and pricing first. We will also make a Basic Micro Plug Holder that will hold multiple Micro Plugs. These will be either untextured or minimally textured to keep the price down.

    I better make sure he places a bigger order so he doesn't run out.

    If any of you Michiganers that are going to the conference can let me know how many you want I can make sure Bill has them set aside for you. I'll even box em up for ya and put your name on them to make it faster for ya so you can spend more time drooling over the livestock. I wish I could go to the show myself but I have prior commitments.

    This is a really good price especially if you do not have to pay shipping so bulk up.
