That's the price in the carribean. I'd guess the extra cost is for shipping so it would be the same or more than you could get them for here in the states.

I heard they have trouble with rock also - they inhabit sea grass flats so rock is not their natural terrain . Astralium Calcar often sold as Thorny Astrea or Star snails , are rock inhabiting snails - I have 6 in a 10gal and they have never had a problem with rocks in the tank .
