    Our tank has a lot of purple and brown and was trying to add some color. This was my preliminary list. They don't seem that pricey? If you get 5 shipping is free!! That saves me $40 right off the top.
    Pink Lace Bird's Nest - $15,
    Ponape Bird Nest $25,
    Garrett's tenuis - $40,
    Greenpeace Acropora millepora - $25,
    Limelite Green Slimer - $30,
    Firestone Chalice - $20,
    Rocket City Red Chalice - $15,
    Oregon Tort - $80

    I think he is just a reefer selling some of his frags as opposed to a huge retailer.

    Pretty sure people in the club will have all of those or else something very similar. I've got a few corals for you if you guys wanna drop by

    That's very generous of you Mike! and the members of the club are and have been most generous!!! I was just web surfin and came across the frag site and thought I might actually buy a couple of frags. They don't seem that expensive when they offer free shipping. The one coral I am having trouble finding are Gorgonians

    Pricey for that list. You're actually better off just dropping $10-20 a frag over at Neptune, AC, or another one of our sponsors and come out with the same caliber or higher. Neptune even has some torts, which looks like the Oregon one in their tank. I'd ask them to verify though if you're gonna pick it up.

    Also, you might want to keep an eye on RC since there are sellers there such as UTC which have really low price frags for what you get even with shipping thrown in. Here's his last post in the FS section:

    For gorgonians, you can check here.

    https://www.kpaquatics.com/product-category/corals/gorgonians-octocorals/

    Make sure you read up on them and their care since they're not all photosynthetic. Even the non-photosynthetic have varying degrees of difficulty due to particle size that they're able to consume.

    If you want to buy coral online, and willing to spend time bidding. We had a lot of success buying from AquaSD. You can get good frag ~$10 and pay shipping only once for all your winnings. Weekly auction end Thursday 5-9PM. Pics/colors are legit.

    If you didn't win "enough" on Thursday, you can also participate in the weekend forum sale and combine that into the shipping. Here is a sample of last week sale

    They are super responsive to email if you have any question about a particular frag

    As with anything foreign and especially with anything online, make sure you're on top of your inspection and dipping (basically dip and inspect everything).

    I bring this up as I've encountered acro eating spiders from AquaSD and acro eating flatworms from CRC recently.

    But does he cry at night while looking at the tank with a red flashlight and he thinks nobody is looking?

    I have regular old green slimer and a red chalice and red planet if you want.

    Would love them! You are very generous! Are you ever down this way or around during the weekdays?

    Hey Eric,
    Are you sure you want to part with it? - it's a "Tyree" If yes, we would be thrilled to have it. How much$ Just have to figure out a time to make it down there.

    It's a confirmed Tyree piece that I got from a buddy awhile back to see if the tank was ready for SPS. It's been sitting on my sandbed for months and gets knocked over all the time. I rather it go to a good home. It's not worth much by today's standards, like $30ish when I see them for sale, so I'm not sure if it's worth the drive, unless you were down in the southbay checking out the frags at Neptune. I'll be bringing it to the frag swap in September otherwise.

    We would be grateful to have it though I think you are right about making a special trip for it. I don't see us making it down to Neptunes in the near future. So I'd say you should bring it to the swap meet and parlay it into something you like.
    Thanks, Mark
