    They do but you need a exporters/importers permit.
    Coral crazed (I believe) buys from RRC every now and then.

    My first thought was “sure a liberal use of the word ‘rainbow’”. It’s only 5 colors short...

    Rainbows are between 1-2 colors lol. Anything named 'rainbow' is a basic coral.
