Frag frag frag

So aquaculture, i have a pretty decent collection of sps and lps....but like most of us it never is enough lol. I often go to my lfs and impulsively buy coral when all i had gone for was for a dam piece of media . Christmas is comming up and im gifting myself more coral i want to purchace at least 30 40 new frags to grow out.... My lfs gave me some pretty high pricing, and after doing the math......rip off ( cough cough) lol.....i know i can find a better price online...anyone know a place that has good sps and lps selection at a reasonable price....not asking for cheap!!! Just reasonable

You won't find a better deal than from local reefers/clubs.

Get your trade on! I haven't bought a coral in 5+ years, which is why I don't charge for frags either.

Get enough posts so you can access the classified section on here. Some really good deals. ptreef has some nice sps on there now, 18 frags for $260 shipped (hint hint). There are other with more high end stuff if that's what you want.

I would recommend craigslist, and legendarycorals, recently I've been buying all my coral from my LFS just because I feel like the sizes of the coral frags offered by my LFS are a way bigger and I don't have to pay for overnight shipping.
