    Where can you buy them online? Most vendors only carry frags. The only vendor I've seen that carries colonies is liveaquaria

    Why would you want to pay for colonies?

    I just found an insane deal at my LFS, this is a multi lot of 18-20 large colonies on a put together coral. I saved around %75 buying it this way. I also am fragging colonies off of this one.

    It really depends on what you are looking for, and what you as the buyer considers a colony.

    I'd personally rather grow my own colonies. My LFS usually has decent sized colonies for $39-100 depending on what it is, sometimes more. Try craigslist for an old fellow taking down a tank. Usually I can find those, too.

    I like colonies because you frag them and they pay for themselves AND you get a frag still.
