Yup! I did that and got some nice stuff once. You got to be really good at sniping and MAKE SURE to win several otherwise you wind up paying way too much when you pay to ship one item.
Some corals are good deals while others are rediculous (and they never sell). Just got to know what you are buying. My LFS
USUALLY has the upper hand on online (even ebay) dealers...But once in awhile they are shocked at my deals!
I had someone throw in this odd chalice frag that looks 100% the same as one that my LFS
sells at $125 per EYE. They simply didnt believe me, showed me much cheaper possible matches and then told me to take EXCELENT care of it. Some chalice with very pink eyes which is growing well.
