Why are clownfish pairs so expensive?

Why are clownfish pairs and fancy clownfish sooooo expensive? Clownfish pair up so easily and clownfish aren't that hard to breed so why are pairs and fancy ones like Picasso and midnight clowns so costly??
Thanks

But how come someone hasn't started selling them for less? They would make more money because everyone would buy from them!

It's the same species (a. Ocellaris) just different color mutations. They haven't spawned yet though

I'm breeding snowflakes with blacks, but they are both the same exact species. Both have extreme color mutations, and their offspring will have color mutations.
