Does anyone have any Xenia or quick beginner corals they are trying to get rid of? I’m willing to drive a decent amount. I bought a bio cube with the stand for a 100 bucks on marketplace which was pretty wild. I’m stocking it rn, just looking for a first coral to hopefully cover the whole back of the tank. I’m new to the saltwater side and think it would be cool to get this thread and reef club to be a real community.

I would go to Blue Line Coral in Naperville or Reef Plus in Aurora. Either shop has solid coral prices and will help you with your first picks. Buying or gifting from other local tanks may introduce something into you system that you don't want. Not saying shops don't have issues, but they are constantly checking for flat worms, aphasia, ect. Building a relationship with a local shop is a good start, for a new tank.

Agree with going to Blue Line!! Dan is amazing and will definitely get you started on the right foot!

(I knew him when he lived in the Houston area, great guy!)

Hey, I have a macro algae tank, I want to know if I can grow blue hypnea, red Pom Pom, red ogo, and dragons breathe together. I just want a lot of variety. The light is an AI prime, is a 6 gallon shallow display, has an AIO style filter.

Thank you for the offer I’m for it for sure. I’d probably do a toad stool and Kenya for sure.

I have a bunch of Xenia if you're still looking. And I agree with everyone else about Blue Line. They also have actions all the time. You can get some good corals for cheap. Thats how I got started.

I have two Chicago sunburst right now, and was wondering what the real difference between a rock nem vs a regular long tentacle nem.
