I visited Dr Mac's corals today and I have to say I have never seen so many corals in one place! I got a beautiful blue maxima clam for $49. A pair of Ocellaris clowns for $30. Also got a mushroom frag and a crab. The had a lot of advanced corals there that were out or my price and experience range. The staff answered just about all my questions about any coral I pointed to including the $700 Aussie frag. I hope I don't sound like a TV commercial, but it was really cool to walk around and look at hundreds of corals I'd never seen before. I drooled a little. Dr Mac works with an aqua-culture facility in the Solomon Islands that frags and grows corals on eggcrate in the ocean and then they send him stuff. He grows and frags a lot of his own SPS at his facility --I watched them fraggin some corals while I was there. They also breed several types of clowns and other fish.
