Those who have been around on CR
for awhile may have seen Coral Collector. It is an area of the site set up to be able to not only show off your coral collection, but also provide information to others that are researching corals to add to their collection. Coral Collector 2.0 improves on the original by providing a tighter integration with our forums and a more familiar/easier interface to be able to navigate and post. Coral Collector - Captive Reefs
You can search for corals by type, color, etc. The search is mostly driven by drop down boxes...with a simple click of a drop-down menu you can narrow down your coral search and find out who has a coral you are interested in as well as care information and pricing information.
As an example you are looking for a zoanthid, your not sure of the name, but you know it is primarily pink. Simply select zoanthid and pink and the corals meeting that criteria are displayed. You can also search to see if anyone has frags available for sale...or that may be open to fragging their colony.
In addition, their are fields where you can optionally input how much you paid for the coral. The idea of this is to provide a pricing guide to help when members and guests are researching corals.
When entering your corals, use the photo upload tool to include at least one photo of your coral. This photo will be shown as the thumbnail for the thread. You may include additional photos using the standard [img] tag. Coral Collector - Captive Reefs
Feel free to ask any questions... I'm looking forward to seeing your coral collection here on CR
