    Ouch is right. I paid more than that. Not even free shipping. Little buzzkill if that's correct, I never heard of whoever that is.

    I see it now. Their pic is kind of bland compared to even compared to non vendors I've seen photo this coral. Well I get it tomorrow so will see guess. I don't see jf as embellishing quite so much as some other vendors, the majority of jf corals I have I just as good in person. I've also seen that homewrecker in person a few weeks ago and it looks just like the pics.

    I probably would have paid that amount for it too but no free shipping would have been the deal breaker for me, lol. With such a hefty price tag, shipping should most definitely be included. That's just irritating.

    Thats funny, I do the same thing. I almost got my self in trouble last week. I purchased a torch from World Wide Corals retail store. The sales man wrote 125.00 on the bag. I was so excited at the color of this torch, I asked my wife to come look at it while it was floating. Then I realized what a bone head I was and quickly turned the bag around and lowered it behind my rocks. Phew, that was close..

    Looks just like jf's pic except the polyps keep closing eveytime a fish swims by it, but very happy with it. I'll get a good pic up soon.

    Well best I could do with limited time

    Old thead, I know...picture update???

    Five years ago this coral was not on the market. There are no magic products aside from the corals themselves. :)

    Either it's crazy to spend on a coral-flake like that or it's not - I don't think you can try to "get serious" when they start talking about shipping. ;) :)
