    Hey everyone, I'm trying to fill my 40br with some corals. I've noticed my money doesn't go too awfully far at the LFS, so I was looking for some fairly common cheap corals! I was thinking about maybe a toadstool leather, some common Zoas, and some common rhodactis or discosoma. I'm open to anything, just let me know!

    DBTC is NOT an invitation to get free coral!

    Of course, it's kind of like coral insurance to my understanding? im just stating I'm open to DBTC as well

    I'm mainly just looking for softies and LPS. I have a single green slimer frag that is growing and has good color, but I'm not ready for dosing and what not yet, still trying to get the basics like water changes mastered first

    Since I'll be in this boat soon, while we're on the topic...what is the best way to fill an empty reef tank?

    Is it to buy frags from the LFS grow them up to bring to frag meets?
    Attend BAR events?
    Purchase from BAR members?
    Make friends and perform favors ;)
    Wait for a tank tear down post and cannibalize?

    Just brainstorming here...probably all of the above.

    Good luck fish boss! If I get anything extra I'll help you out.

    Buy frags from LFS and other reefers.

    Occasionally, some will offer free frags when their tank is too full and they need to do some trimming.

    Feel free to ask for donations. I'm sure you get some that way as well.

    Frag swaps are a great way to get coral you don't already have.

    Other option is to sneak into @Vhuang168's garage. He won't even notice if one goes missing. Just don't grab the alien boobies one.

    Always a good idea not to grab alien boobies...
