Default Most Expensive Zoanthid/Paly Per Polyp

Ok, so I've always heard about zoas that go for $200-$500 per polyp but haven't really seen any pics so I can get a sense of what they look like.

Does anyone know what some of the most expensive zoas per polyp are? (purple and blue hornets EXCLUDED)

Or can you give me an example of a zoa that goes for $200-$500 per polyp?

If so, can you post a pic or a link to a pic so I (and everyone else) can see them. And please be sure to post a price with the pic so we know what kind of $$$ we're talking about.


Notice the key words per polyp.

Never heard or seen anything that went for that high. Purple People Eaters are always up there around $50 per polyp. But of course I wouldn't even bother with such outrageous per polyp pricing.

I know what you're saying about ebay and I've actually seen the captain america paly on ebay. So I guess the price per polyp just depends on how new and/or common it is in the market and it changes all the time.

To bad everyone didnt know that under the right conditions zoas/palys are the weeds of the reef world, and arent, IMO, worth more than $10 a polyp, and in most cases 10 cents......

If more people knew better, and truly understood these said polyps, these prices wouldnt be heard of.

Disclamer- I sure do love these "weeds" of the coral world!!!!

Been keeping an eye out for the worlds next "hot polyp". Wonder what it will be? Who knows.....

One thing I do know- there will be many people willing to pay for it, unfortunatly.....

Had to add my 2 cents on the subject- no offence intended to anyone.

Im a firm believer that your just paying for the name with those "designer" corals anyway. If it has a clever name it costs more. I can understand why some cost more/less by colors and types but some are just ridiculous...
