Live aquaria's nano soft coral pack

The LFS around here charges $60+ just for frags. I have a 14g oceanic nano with no corals so far, and the live aquaria's nano pack seems too good to be true. For $120+shipping I can get 8 nano corals, here is the link for those interested:

http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/p...fm?pCatId=2033

Does anyone have experience with this? Am I better off just using the LFS? I'm sort of on a budget, being in college, and $150 is pretty much the max I can go on corals. Pretty much the only thing I am set on is green mushrooms, and maybe later down the road a brain coral.

Alternative I can get the mushroom pack+polyp pack and just buy a leather or something.

It looks pretty good to me. I like buying from the LFS because I can see what it looks like and if it`s healthy. But the good doctors have a 14 day guantee also.

It is a good price, depending on the size of the corals. I say go for and let us know how it turns out. (Its always fun spending other people's money!)

I am personally cautiousus from ordering live "stuff" online, but then again I have never tried and if you have a good experience maybe I will try sometime.

I have used liveaquaria for fish, corals and inverts in the past. Great service and decent selection of animals. You really have to place a big order to be able to actually save money when you figure in the shipping.

far as the company goes, I would highly recommend ordering from them. I would only worry about not being able to at least see what you will be getting...they don't seem to offer a lot of colorful corals so you might end up with a lot of browns and greens and regret it in the long run. They are a really good company though from my experience and have great customer service.

Thanks for the advice everyone. I think I'm going to do it, and I'll post pics when I get them. If anything I can sell back some that I don't want to the LFS.
