Where to buy coral?

In your experience, where are some of the better places to buy coral? I love my LFS, but their coral selection isn't very colorful. What about online sites? I think Liveaquaria has some of the best pictures and descriptions, but are their others with better shipping policies or different selection?
I like the blue and purple acropora (or something like that) and the pink birdsnest, although they are considered difficult.
Thanks.

I go to:

http://reefcentral.com/forums/forumd...?s=&forumid=98

and buy from others. It is so much cheaper and lots of good people there to buy from.

Acro has very very high lighting requirements, so be prepared. Usally for most stuff the general rule of thumb ( exluding acro ) 13" or less of depth in your tank NO would be fine. 20" would require PC or VHO. Over 30" of tank depth will require halide.
