How many people here buy coral on Ebay?


Just wondering if any of you guys ever bid or buy coral on Ebay?
I've just recently started looking and WOW there is some CHEAP stuff on there!!

Here's what I won tonight on Ebay...

Pink Milli $9.99



Metallic Neon Green Blastomussa Wellsi $17.50




Blue Base/Green Eye Chalice Coral $9.99




Fluorescent Green Galaxea Coral $18.50



Red/Green Bullseye Mushrooms $9.99



Red Skirt/Neon Green Star Zoanthids $9.99





With shipping overnight for only $25 for all of it..
So shipping on each piece was only $4.17 each

Total bill out the door is going to be like $100


I just can't belive these prices!!!
So does anyone else buy coral on the bay?

PS: I'm not selling coral on ebay, or promoting any sellers on ebay. Just wanted to share deals..

I bought most of my coral off of ebay, but I got it local so no shipping. I got almost all my frags for about 5.00 each. Great deals exspecially if it's local.

I've purchased a few nice frag's off E-*ay...I try to do a refined search to sellers within x-# of mile's from me in hope's of finding a place I can pick up from if possible. (better for everyone-especially coral)
You might try John from coralmarinelife.com - he sells on E*ay and live's in Jackson. Or John from YourReef who has also advertised and you probably already know where he is... : )

Yeah I know.. Crazy..
The user I bought from is listing a bunch more stuff tomorrow I guess, so there will be even more for me to go broke on!!

bngowe, Yeah I was kinda worried about that, till I saw that he's fairly local (BA), and his feedback has been spotless for over a year (All positive Feedback: 3538)

I think I'm going to have to sell some of the frags from my coral grow out system to make room for these guys!!!
Look for a FS: thread soon, as I clear space out.
heheh

Steve - I thought I recognized your ebay handle - knew it was you. Luckily we bid on different corals. Let me know how your transaction goes and I'll keep you updated as well.

Here is one coral I did _not_ buy because it got too expensive for me; but, wish I had. If anyone finds a similar coral PLEASE let me know. This micro is simply gorgeous.
