Found a great LFS...... It's a PETCO!! Lol they had soooooo many SW fish. Literally a whole wall filled with 20g,10g, and 33g tanks. They also had a big selection of corals for cheap. But I couldn't get anything because they said that the shipment was sick with ich so nothing was for sale even the corals But I I've pre ordered a watchman goby/ tiger pistol shrimp pair and goniapora for only $60 which is a pretty good deal since the goniopora is 4-5"

Cool! I am glad that they weren't selling anything because it was sick. That is great!

You do know that goniopora is classed as an expert coral?

Supposed to need perfect water.....

+1 I've heard the same... I wanted one for my tank, but passed. Asked on recommendations and advice of it being so difficult.

Well I've started saving up for the LED Pro module and I have $60 to go since I've reached my monthly spending limit of $200 lol or do you think 200w metal halide would be an over kill?

I have 2 goniporas and they have been doing well so far. i do keep my water pretty pristine but both are in tanks that are less than a year old. I'm hardly an "expert" but so far so good for me.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Ive tried green goniopora but failed. I might try again if I can get a small frag.
