dont know if you want frags or not, but the fish store and more just got some beautiful med size acros in, absolutely beautiful, they are around 50-60 I believe and I personally think worth every penny. Not only are they aqua cultured from the ocean, but they have cool little acro crabs on every one :p I almost bought one just for that reason, but I hesitated a bit due to the clam in my tank, any crab scares me.

Hey I can fork out 25-30 bucks. If someone else wants to split the price and frag in half....I'm all for it. It depends how big the frags are.

GLXTRIX - are they the same sized as the $30 frags at capbay?

the corals at TFSAM are about 3-4" high and 3+in wide, some are smaller, some are a lil bigger. But they are really great pieces.

I really dont know for sure, alls I do know is you cant trust any crab with clams, sure everyone has red and blue legs in thier tanks, but when it comes to a 60+ dollar clam, I'm not going to play lets hope :) I mean they might stay on the acro, I dont know, I've never had one. I'm sure other people would be able to tell ya for sure.

Crabs typically won't mess with any healthy clam. I've read (and experienced) that clams will emit some 'distress' chemical when they aren't healthy, and scavengers pick up on that and attack the clam.

As far as acro crabs go, they simply don't leave their colony home.
