I'd like to add that most artificial corals are dyed/colored deeper than what is usually seen on the reefs because over time they will fade a little. Thus they have thought ahead and compensated for this.

They are also on the pricey side ;)

Are thse fake corals more expensive then the real deal?

I would hope not. If they were reasonable I would probably be inclined to switch to fake corals. Anyone know what the imitation corals are made from, plastic?

It depends, I've seen fakes made from cement type stuff, silicon, plastic, and some less identifiable substances.

The probably with fakes though, is that they'll eventually get covered in coralline unless you clean them regularly.

Drs. Foster & Smith has some polyurethane ones that are pretty reasonable... not a huge selection though.
