    I don't mind booger frags at all. One of the most rewarding parts of this hobby/addiction is watching them grow and become their own colonies in my tank.

    I don't mind booger frags but when they reach hundreds of dollars I just laugh.

    I don't have a LFS to get good corals. Don't know anyone local I could trade or buy from. So don't have any. One day would like to get a couple. The colony seem cool

    It would be cool to have booger frags as long as it's <$50 and looks really nice. Otherwise I'm a bargain bin guy.

    Booger frags are great but should be sold at a fraction of the price of a regular sized frag! I hate when people charge regular frag prices for these. I believe this hobby should be for sharing these beautiful creatures and not charging high prices! :)

    Thank you for posting this! I very much appreciate the hard working folks that make sure we have beautiful options. Given how much better we've gotten at reefkeeping, smaller frags means more people enjoying those hard to find rarities. Its not like the average LFS owner is driving a Ferrari.

    One good way to meet people local to you is to update your location on forums like these.

    I've always been a fan of frag swaps to get good deals on the booger sized corals! Plus, it's usually always a fun event, you get to hang out all day and talk reef, I mean what gets better than that?
