There is no picture but $150 sounds ridiculous. I have never heard of them growing babies either. We are talking about fungia sp. or plate corals right?

That is really weird. I've never seen fungia like that. Would you be able to get a less blue shot?

They do tend to group like that, and in reality, if the colors are ok, you can sell them easily for 20-25 a pop, so you can trim down that 80 bucks, or even that 150 quite a bit with a single frag swap.
