Are these rare ?

Another purchase from this weekend - some nice Blue Zooanthids. The guy at the LFS told me they were pretty rare - is that accurate ? Don't worry, it wasn't a line to get me to pay crazy prices I got these and the Ricordias fom my other post just now all for $100. At least I think I didn't get ripped off anyway !

Oh wow - really ? Well I got mine in a store called "Aquatic Gallery" in Milpitas, California. The owner may be prepared to ship some to you. He had quite a few more in stock when I was there on Saturday. The phone number is (408) 262-3400.

Thanks for that, I may just give him a call! I live in a small town with one LFS, its pretty hard to come by anything other than common stuff. I appreciate the info, enjoy your zoos!

I just saw a 2" frag of similar blue zo's sell on Ebay for over $400.00 plus shipping. Now, I do think that's crazy - but they are 'in demand'.

I have some nice blues that I got from >LogicalReef<. When he gets them, he gets nice ones, and they aren't too expensive. I have seen ppl charge crazy money for them though.

Squishy, I saw blue ones at Dallas North Aquarium once. You might want to check there.
