Vicki,

Just so we don't have to read through all the messages later, would you please use the voting buttons at the top of the page?   Wouldn't want Rico to have to take his shoes off if more than ten people responded.

Thanks!

(he's reading over my shoulder and he didn't seem to like my post.  LOL)

Well, dag nab it (who says that?) when I first read the post, I was looking for voting buttons and didn't see any!  But when I read your post, Lucy, there they were!   Then after I did use the voting button (I am very obedient, see?) and went back...again, the buttons were gone.  Am I losing it??? :? (the anwer is probably yes in any case). :oops:

I thought the idea of sharing what books we have found helpful might be a good one (I think Jeff, that was your idea?) but since we are planning our new (first) reef tank, I'd sure like to hear "lessons learned" from experience - i.e., what equipment/husbandry/fish/corals etc have/have not worked for you....the old saying, "if I knew now what I knew then, I'd..."  fill-in-the-blank.   But this might not be as useful to experienced hobbyists as it is to newbies like us...just tossing out an idea to help get the creative juices flowing!

Some of your ideas Jeff would be good threads for future reference!  Like what everyone has that they hope to frag someday and common list of what every one is currently keeping in their tanks?

Somethings we need to be honest and ask for a selling price because getting corals that no one has and having to pay for them can get expensive (ex: $50-100 for a 1" frag). For example the tort corals or some rare expensive stuff or even some hard to find zoos (some zoos run for $75.00 and you may get 15 polyps on a 2" rock)!  I know a lot of folks don't mind fragging their fast growing corals but I'm just talking about the more valuable stuff.  NOw by no means do I mean charge what I have listed just a reasonable contribution to add to our reef addiction would be nice.
