Lucky!! I've got a few warehouses filled with at least a thousand coral for $10-$15. But they are all 2 hrs away. One of them is Mr. Coral

I've paid everywhere from $5 up to about $30 for a frag. I will spend a little more on bigger than frag corals, but I have like a $50 limit. keeps me from going crazy on corals. LOL

Update

I just got home to find the water level very low. But that's the only bad thing. I bought 5 corals from worldwidecorals.com and they are acclimating as I post. I bought a ricordea, stylophora, acropora, frogspawn, and palythoa. I got the acro and paly free. I just wanted to see if I could keep an acro and it seems like its doing well. Good polyp extension and color. The paly on the other hand doesn't look so hot. Very closed up and just not looking well at all. The frogspawn is neon and doing great. Same with the ricordea. Stylophora has good polyp extension but I don't know how well it's doing.. Does anyone have tips on the stylo and the paly? I hope they can do well. I am going to move my candycane lower in the tank because its kinda shrunken. Also, what placement should I have with the frogspawn? Sorry for all the questions and info in one post lol.
