Can anyone explain to me why Acanthastrea costs so much!? From what I have read so far I cant find a good reason for it to be so expensive. Its very hardy, grows well, doesn't come from deep water or exclusively from protected waters. It seems like if you were to get your hands on one colorful frag
you could grow it out and pay for ALL your future aquarium needs and then some.
The reason I ask is because I would like to get some but don't want to get in over my head without knowing all the facts...
