Thanks! But i doubt that he can ship all the way to me. Even if he can, itll cost an arm and a leg for shipping/duty fees and tax... I wish i lived in florida!

Oh yeah he's one of the few that get corals at a deal and sells them to reef enthusiast at a reasonable price. Everything was parasite free as well. Which is better than any coral I've gotten online. Plus free serpent stars came with it haha

I added my wellso yesterday and it looked good. Today I woke up and it was "inflated" I would call it. Is it normal for a brain coral to puff up?

Not completely sure. Turn off the flow and just put the food near its mouth. Dont shove it in the coral lol i dont think the feeder tentacles NEED to be out for it to eat.. Try it and if it doesnt eat feed it when the tentacles are out!
