Red Hornet Zoanthids

I'm wondering if these zoanthids are considered "rare" or not. There's a local person that's selling some of these zoas for a frag (3 polyps) for 30 dollars. Good or bad deal?

Oh really! Dang in that case the sellers way over pricing! Guess I'm not going to buy.

So do you think 3 heads are worth $30? That's really expensive.

not all polyps are created equal. When I googled them, the first 5 links were to stores ranging from 25 to 40 dollars per polyp.
