    I know you're kidding, but more people and more demand should actually mean more turnover for a store and might help lower prices.

    Sure it is. Nice corals are a limited resource. Higher demand increases scarcity and prices rise.

    Opposite is true, more members in the club means more FREE frags to go around :D

    It actually goes both ways. Prices, adjusted for by supply and demand, is dependent on whether the goods is a luxury item or not.

    Depends on the quality of frags that are freely offered. plus there's "the bug" part of the equation getting people more addicted wanting their pretty things means higher demand on the LFS

    Hell when I started this hobby I was happy with fish in a box and some rocks. wasnt until a LFS gave me some corals for free that I actually wanted them

    No they are not :). Corals that grow slower and harder to keep are limited resource.

    I suppose they aren’t “free” if they cost your friendship tho.

    Very impressive conversation people. I would like to help BAR. I have some ideas that seem consistent with the general consensus here, and can help to implement them. I think that communities like this are super-valuable, and well worth keeping alive and well. Who should I speak to? Sounds like you Bruce?

    Not me. I'm not a member of the BOD. However, there is a BOD meeting next Saturday where a lot of ideas will be shared.
