Has anyone else ran into this? You find a really good looking piece of coral that you want in a display tank and ask, but they say it’s not for sale.
Yes! I think they just like to show it off? I think that everyone has a price and if you offer the right amount of money that they would sell to you. Give it a shot?
Have you ever heard of a coral store where corals are not for sale? I mean, we all love reef aquariums and Coral is definitely an important ingredient for that. But as we all know, there are many species of corals that are threatened due to illegal extraction and damage to the reefs.
However, there are some coral stores that specialize in coral protection by not offering corals for sale, but instead breeding them in so-called "aquaculture farms". These farms use sustainable methods to cultivate and propagate corals, keeping natural coral reefs protected.
I think it's important that we are aware of where our corals come from and how they are obtained. By supporting Coral Stores that promote sustainable practices, we help ensure the protection of corals and reefs.
What do you think? Do you know a coral store that doesn't offer corals for sale either? Let us know and share your experiences!
