How large are these pieces for those prices? I mean "hammer corals 10 each" means what? Is that 10 dollars a head? It's about retail IMO.

This guy isn't collecting, he's making wholesale purchases with intentions to resell. He's a retailer without a brick and mortar store. To answer your question, those prices are just about retail.

Go see his stuff, and if you like it, buy it. I don't know what things are going for in Aussie, but I'm guessing you should be able to buy some pretty nice Aussie stuff (Australian corals are the most colorful and generally most expensive available) for a decent price, since shipping is much cheaper than it would be for us.
