Newbie looking to add color to the tank with easy frags

    Hi,
    I just started up a 60 gallon cube tank. I'm looking to start adding some color with zoas/palys, mushrooms, leathers, etc. I'm trying to get everything "used" or at least not wild caught, and I would really like to be able to do that with local fellow hobbyists. So far everything has been off CL. I'm also trying to keep costs down since 1) I already spent way too much on the setup (according to wife) and 2) I really don't want to kill anything expensive in the learning process.

    If you have some particularly colorful frags or pieces, please let me know!

    thank you,
    adrian

    I think I have an extra chunk of green palys if you’d like them. They can get growing pretty quick, but mine grow right up alongside other soft corals and don’t bother them.

    Here’s a photo of some of mine under blues. I can snap another photo under the day lights later if you’d like. :)

    I have some Gonzo's Golden Dragon Mushrooms that are very hardy as well as some basic Gold Mushrooms. (pics from Aquaporium.com)

    Reef Ed is this weekend and I'm sure you could snag a ton of cheap frags there, but we also have a DBTC meeting the following week

    free to join, and even if you dont have corals to add to the pool, no one ever walks out of here without at least a few corals in hand ;)

    Boy....that's for sure. "a few" is always an understatement. This is an incredibly generous community.

    I went a couple years ago and made it known that I didn't have a tank set up, and I was STILL being handed corals, lol.

    Go to the frag swap. I am bringing a ton of beginner corals there that I dont want in my new build and will be giving away most of my beginner tickets to those starting out.

    Just wanted to follow up and say that I had a bunch of people come through for me with frags for sale and DTBC - this is a great community and much appreciated. Pretty much everywhere I went, I got much more than I had planned on, and the tank is starting to look really promising. Thanks everyone!
