What else do they eat? Can you keep them from eating things you don’t want them to eat?
Everything. Algae, leftover fish/coral food, corals if they really want to.... About 50% of mine have started to steal food from corals. Now my marine betta eats them so no worries.

Mag isn't the issue. At 1300 it is still low. I run mine at 1450 plus.

So my understanding of lighting sales is to clear out stuff they have been sitting on for awhile. And yes there is a markup, just like any other store, of any variety. But even friends or friends with connections are making a profit off of you. This is why the best time to buy is when they lower prices so your paying closer to what they paid.
But when buying from some vendors you get a guarantee that most individuals won’t offer. So you pay for that too. If you notice I talk mostly about POTO, their prices are reasonable. WWC is outrageous and even their sale prices are sometimes to high.
some things you may never be able to buy unless from a vendor. Like my scoly those you can’t propagate.

Be a smart shopper, shop the sales. Wait for the price drop. So your paying as close to wholesale price as possible or as close to friend price as possible.

I saw a gold torch yesterday at a LFS . I think they want like $250. But it wasn’t named 24k gold Aussie torch. It was a gold torch. I heard the guy say they can’t get in those named kind because no one would buy it for the price they would have to sell it for.

I always try to get the best deal I can. Lol. I’ll email poto and ask for package deals which gets me a better price.

I like the sales not only for price drops on corals but shipping price drop as well. And I know the vendor eats the shipping cost.

oh I know that friends still want to make some money. But if it’s a friend. They’re not going to charge $140 for a toadstool leather frag.

but I agree about shopping smart. I have already decided which vendors I’ll give my business to. Nothing against the others by any means. I just know what I want and what I’m trying to make with my reef, ya know.

I will hit up POTO once in a while though. They seem like awesome people and do have nice pieces.

A little word of advice, get the latest shipping date possible so you can buy stuff in the aftersale lol
