If you can find a blue I'd say youre looking at at least $40 for a decent sized piece. Thats the prices i run into in central florida, not sure what area of the state youre in.

Most of my corals were only $20, I have gone as high as $60 for a brain coral once. LOL But Montis' are awesome growers and add some great color to a tank. the red and green are the cheapest so maybe you can start with one of them.

Where are you in Florida? I have some really great shops in Orlando that i frequent and I know the prices. In fact one of the stores has an online store as well. Check out World Wide Corals | Buy live corals for your saltwater aquarium online or in Orlando- WYSIWYG, LPS, SPS, Jason Fox, Chalice, Tyree, and soft corals

If you're ever up for a trip on a coral buying mission let me know. I have about 5 shops in that area that are majorly top of the line. I do the orlando fish shop route maybe once a month and it takes all day. LOL But it's so worth the ride, it's about an hour and change for me to get to Orlando.

They also have those online corals all for sale in the store, they are numbered in special tanks so you can actually see them in person if you wanted. I highly recommend that site, all their corals are top notch. If you arent up for a drive you could probably order, I can't see them charging you full shipping since you are soo close.

Trust me, the trip is SOOO worth it. even just to look. that worldwide coral place has a 500g TANG tank. They have every tang you have every heard of, including a black and a WHITE TANG! I have never even heard of a white one but they got one. LOL

If and when you make that trip PM me and I will send you the names & addresses of the other stores. I love making a day of it shopping for fish and coral. I can't always afford the corals in these fancy smancy shops but they always have a discount rack. WWC had a 3 for $10 rack once, picked up some smaller montis and zooa's for 10 bucks! hehe....

Probably won't :P Might have to raise them separately if you wanted that.. I've never even read about it actually lol.

Most times I read about this everyone talks about them getting eaten, trapped in filter pads, and skimmed out by the skimmer. Apparently fish and corals love to eat them.

Yea I was thinkin about gettin a 2.5 and put In some sand from my main tank. And try to raise them. There's probably enough bacteria and detritus in the sand for them to eat

You should read up on it. Usually raising anything really small like that up from eggs requires lots of specialized food and conditions. Seems like a lot more work than itís worth. I have always looked at any animals spawning in my tank as a nice little treat for the fish to eat. The only exception I might make is if I ever wanted to try to get my clowns to spawn.

I've tried a googling it but there's just not much info on breeding snails. I think I'll just leave em alone and see what happens. If they did it once they'll probably do it again. Lol

A lot of the mushrooms at my lfs have aiptasia on the rock they're attached to. Would it be bad to buy one? Couldn't I just squirt it with lemon juice before i put it in the tank?

I bought a coral, blue clove polyps, beautiful one too but it had some on it but I got it anyways.

i am now months later fighting a loosing battle with them, I rue the day I bought that coral home. :-( The poor coral is absolutely infested with them now and I feel bad but theres not much i can do but go on a killing spree with aipatsia X every week and hope I can keep up.

So, in my experience, I wouldn't recommend it.
