Dear Coral Listers,

1.  In the aquarium trade, how do retailers distinguish between "live rock" 
and "coral" when both corals and calcarious algae are found on the same 

2.  In jurisdictions allowing export of live rock but not coral, how are 
they differentiated?

Here in American Samoa, one company has recently started to collect live 
rock and some aquarium fish for export on a weekly basis.

Please send comments directly to me at: flinnc at
