I'm more than a bit leery of any of them. The pictures you see online are very often so over processed that the colors you see are nowhere near what they will be in your aquarium. Add to that the exorbitant prices for tiny frags, shipping costs, etc and I find it much better to buy from a LFS, or better yet, at a swap meet.

That way, WYSIWYG really is WYSIWYG!

Battlecorals in Wisconsin has wonderful SPS.
What you order on the site is exactly what you get.

Agreed Adam at Battle corals is a honest guy.

I do agree with billdogg though with the exception of a handle full of vendors and Battlecorals is one of them.

Corals.com is another where stuff I have got is better than in pictures.
