    I think I'm gonna try ordering a fish online. Should I go with liveaquaria or is there a better place? I live kind of near NYC if that matters.

    I figure while I'm at it I'll get my money's worth on shipping and order a coral. I wanna get some kind of LPS that's very colorful and can handle a lot of flow. Ideas plox!?

    Hmmm, I'm sifting around here and found chalices in the LPS section. Always thought chalice was SPS. Guess not.

    Yeah, chalices are ugly anyway lol.

    I already have some red acans that seem to do well in my high flow tank, also have a plate (in one of the low-flow areas) and a hammer in there, what else is a cool high-flow LPS?

    Yeah, that's where I usually go but I've been having trouble keeping their fish alive. I think it has something to do with how they run copper in the systems. Great corals though. I actually worked there for a little while lol.

    The purple is pretty cool, but they just kind of look like scratched open bug bites lol.
    Dunno, I'm just not a fan of chalices.

    Good reccomendation Biff, I think that's what I'm gonna do.

    +1 to that. Most just look like a rotting open sore to me, but the purple one does look kinda cool.

    I'm a fan of BlueZoo I've made a few fish orders from them and have always been more than satisfied.

    I have not ordered online from Pacific East but I've visited their store in MD. They do $15.99 shipping to "in zone" locations and New York is in their zone. I'm planning on making a coral order from them next month. They've got a couple of cool corals I've been drooling over for a few months and their prices are good.
