Why is Chaeto so expensive?

I have looked a little bit on the net and found it for sale in a few places. Why is it so expensive? $30 for a baseball size piece seems a bit far fetched to me. Is this normal? Anyone know where I can get it cheaper?

That's what I was thinking. I was pretty sure that it went for a lot cheaper than that. Only problem is none of my local stores have it. One guy is said he is going to grow some but I don't know how long that is gonna take.

It grows pretty fast so it shouldn't belong.. In all honesty he could clip you off just a small piece and you'd have a sizeable chunk soon enough
