Where is the best place to get corals around here

I live in Harrisonburg and find the corals for sale around here to be kind of crazy. The stores donít supply the corals with adequate light so i am often skeptical as to whether corals are "closed up" or near death. I could drive to NOVA and look at quality frags for as low as $5, where as here I feel like im forced to play 4x as much for the same thing.

Are there any stores around here that sell corals for good prices that they might raise themselves, showing the health of the corals?

We are actually doing a trip to two of the LFSs in Va. Mike (melosu58) is possibly coming up from Richmond.
Here is a store that was posted in a thread. There seemd to be a real interest in folks going and temp plans are for next Sat. March 17th.
Anyone else want to meet up or meet down there?

LOL That is actually the place i was referring to in my post. Im cheap and like to hit up the $5-$10 section. I was planning a trip myself there for friday. Thier huge tank is amazing. I was just hoping someone closer than 1.5 hrs grew frags like that too.

But hey, if u buy 2-3 frags you can pay for your gas in the savings u get compared to the LFS around here . Not to mention what i think is a safer investment for your tank.

Try sending a PM to bound_for_obx. I *think* he might live near Harrisonburg...maybe.

I find that the best stores are in Richmond: Fish World on Busy Street off of 60 and Atlantis off of 6 (Patterson Road) near Short Pump Road. PM me for directions. They both are well worth the trip. Atlantis has frags. Fish World is more expensive and sells only whole pieces.

I can't post on that forum, but I am interested in a trip to Richmond. However, there is a good chance I will go to a meeting in Miami and may take my dive gear and head to Key Largo for that weekend. Please keep me posted and I will try and watch the other forum.
