Never in a fish store just in the aquarium.

I saw one at seaworld one time. He was bout 8 inches big. What dissapointed me is that in their big aquarium theirs no live corals.

It is usually because the lighting required to keep the corals are too much to put over a massive tank. Corals are easy for us in our home tanks but in huge aquariums they are almost impossible.

Yes, I suppose but then they would have to arrange the coral close to the top of the tanks where people most likely would not see it. Most of your reefs are very close the the top of the ocean.
