I have dealt with:

Vivid
Cherry Corals
Jason Fox
Quality Marine

Really the only one I have complaints about is Quality Marine. Not a big deal for most because they are whole sale only but I had a fairly large die off after acclimating from Quality Marine. I talked to others that have dealt with them and heard similar stories. Could be a fluke could not be.

Other than that, Cherry, Jason Fox, and Vivid have been exceptionally great both customer service and quality of product wise. Shipping was fast and not a single thing has ever come in DOA or even looking poor. A+ experience with all of them.

I've had very good success with Cultivated Reef in Maine. I've done 4 fairly large orders with them now and the corals have all been high quality and well cared for. The owner is very helpful and if asked, is willing to do above and beyond what many other sellers won't do. Example: I wanted several rock flower anemones and Holly was willing to send me photos of individuals so I could pick and chose.

I have purchased over 60 corals in the last 4 months from a number of sources and by far my favorite place is the Candy Shop. https://www.facebook.com/CandyShopCorals/
Nice size, excellent quality and good prices. What more is there?

$599.00

really...$600 for a montipora frag. It's like cornbread.

That's it, I am going to take a drive down the shore (I live in Jersey) grab one of these "corals" and call it south philly meatball and change $900

My go-to places (in no particular order) are:

Battle Corals
Jason Fox Signature Corals
LiveAquaria (Diver's Den)
Unique Corals
Rocky Mountain Frags
Cherry Corals

Had very good luck with all of 'em.

Fancy names and ridiculous prices.
