They seem to eat whatever I place on them.(mysis, pellets, cyclops) As long as my fish or crabs dont try to steal it. Ive had mixed experiences with ones that already had tissue damage. Some would heal up nicely while others slowly kept receding until there was nothing left.

Same colony but with a flashlight so you can see the color differences.

Some places that ive been to charge between 5-20 per head. But when you get to the nicer color morphs you can pay almost triple that or more.

wow i must have lucked out cause i spent 5 dollars for a frag with 9 heads at my lfs. they were nothing fancy like some of the ones on here just greenish blue with red rims

I do most of my blasto shopping online. Can never find unique morphs in the stores anymore.

What do you generally pay for a colony? I just picked up my first to blastos for $14.99, I had been looking forever and think I got a good deal. One has three large red heads with green mouths and the second is Blue/green with neon green highlights with about 30 penny sized heads.

That's a darn good deal where I'm from. That would sell for over $40 here. Maybe $60. More if the colors are groovy.
