True true. Also, I've got a question more aimed towards HN1, but anyone else can chime in freely lol. Well, if i was to get a coral, why wouldnt i want to get a frag? I see that on some sites coral are expensive.. and frags are not.. Whats the difference really? Could i buy a frag for my tank and it still live or whats the deal?

I'm a big fan of frags. I like to watch things grow. The only difference between a frag and a colony of the same type of coral is size and price.

A frag is a fragment of a coral. The methods vary, but generically if you cut up a coral colony and allow the pieces to heal, you have frags.

Oh i get it. So if i want things that are smaller in size, and take some time to grow.. i would go for frags. And generally speaking, they are lower in price right?

Yeap, i am looking into the flame angels right now lol. I like the scooter gobies, but i REALLY like the watchman goby.. so idk, it will be a tough choice lol.


Wow, that flame angel is VERY nice. It seems like its not that hard to take care of, and its peaceful so thats another good thing since my tank is going to be a peaceful one. Only thing that turns me off is the price. :p I dont know if i would ever pay that much money for a fish. Especially since i know that down the road i'm going to be moving to a different state. So then what do i do. :/ Idk tho, maybe i'll ask for it as a birthday present or something. Thanks for the suggestion tho, thatd a fish im definitely looking into for the future of my reef keeping.
