Average Price For Coral

Postby Perfectblue » 2006-06-29 07:38

What is the average price that everyone pays for coral? I know it depends on the individual coral, and where you purchase it from but I was just curious. I recently picked up a small Mushroom for $5 and a small colony(15-20 polyps) of Zoas for $9.99. If you don't buy coral what prices do you see when you are at a local fish store.

I think the prices over here are sometimes quite expensive, it all depends where you go though.

You can pick up a Candy Cane colony of about 10-12 heads for around ?35 ($63) and thats an average price. The cheapest I have seen was a nice flourescent yellow/green one for ?25 ($45) For a small colony of Zoanthids (10-15 heads) then you will probably be looking at about ?10 ($18) as you can see there is a big difference in prices. For some really small SPS frags (about 2-3") then you will also be looking at ?10 ($18) My Green Ricordia Florida was way too expensive to be honest, I payed ?17 for the single Ric which works out to be around $30.

So yeah, as you can see, the corals up this end of the UK are not priced as low as they are over there in the USA

the cheapest coral at my LFS is ?25 ($42) for 2-4 (mud) blue mushrooms. The most expensive was ?55 ($100) for a 4x2 inch area of star(?) polyps, althought there were more expensive per head ones.

Sad to say, but where I live, as of now I know no one that sales live rock or corals, I live near a beach so I might have to buy a diving suit. :mad:

Ooooh! Diving! Sounds quite fun, if you ask me ;) I guess you could always order online...
