5-15 a head? Not interested in any but a good starting price would be around 1 dollar a polyp. I buy my heat packs from www.kensfish.com

There's a reason why they only cost $20. Let them settle in and see if they color up more, before trying to frag them.

Only $20 Because my coral guy likes me alot. Came from MH light tank. He sells me 3" sps branching montis for only$9. why? because hes anther cool reef guy.

 

There color is better in person. cameras and led lights dont work well together lol at least for me..

They look alright to me, but nothing too special....definitly not 5-15 per polyp....maybe 5-15 per frag(with 3-5 polyps on each frag)

Not trying to be rude boxboy. But they are about as appealing as camo palys. With all the hot zoas out right now those are blah. I give zoas away like that to local reefers.

i agree $1 or 2 for $1. honestly, not to be rude or mean or anything.... ive seen DOZENS of large colonies (100+polyps) of these at the wholesalers on club trips. ive had them in the past. just being real. still a nice zoa tho. they look great under blue/actinics

Honestly, the way people are, you could probably get away with selling small frgs, with 1 or 2 polyps for 5 or 10 bucks. People would think "wow, I never saw this and never heard of it, it must be worth the money. ".

 

In my mind though, I believe you should be partially compensated for what you originally paid and that's it. Buying a 50 dollar frag, waitin a month or 2, and selling the tiny bud it grew in the short Amount of time you had it for nearly twice the amount because it is now "2nd generation aquacultured" is not going to further this hobby. I trade all my coral frgs, or even just give them away. If i sell them, it is Usually no where near what its "worth" Admittedly, I would sell m left leg for some blondies.
