I would like to purchase some corals online but how big are they and do they look like that in person?

  • All corals are sold as frags unless otherwise specified and are photographed on black “egg crate” under led lighting. Each square is 1/2” and by counting the squares it will give you an idea of how big the piece is. We do our best to make the corals represent how they look in person but everyone’s lighting differs so colors could appear differently.
