Where is a good place to buy corals online

What is a good web site for buying corals... that won't sell me snake oil.
I'm a little weary of what i'll recieve, but it seems to be a popular way to aquire nice corals.

Thanks!

Check with Bryan at www.thelogicalreef.com . I have ordered from him before and he comes highly recommended. I don't have anything ready for sale yet although I'm hoping to in the near future.

Check out http://www.drmaccorals.com/sys-tmpl/door/

I will probably be placing an order with this guy soon. As far as I can tell, EVERYONE loves what they get from him.

I had several BAD experiences with exoticfish.com and would NOT recommend you get things from them.

You might as well get used to the idea of paying shipping costs like that. It is quite common.

Overnight shipping is not cheap. Corals just like fish must be shipped overnight and most are shipped guarinteed by 10:30AM next day.

$45 is the average; i don't see problem with it. That price also includes the box charge i believe.

Im sorry to hear that Hara, i have had several transactions with www.exoticfish.com and have loved the items and service. I have had a few problems with corals as they sent me the wrong ones and not enough of some others but all i did was call then they sent me out what i needed for FREE. So i got extra corals for FREE!!!
