    Don’t know but I’d think you can trade for a nice hammer.

    They can sell for up to $5 per polyp but for larger colonies it’s usually more like $2 per. I’d say there are a little over 100 polyps in that colony so $180 - mid 200s maybe. I’m not sure though.

    If you do end up breaking it up into smaller pieces I’d be interested in a few.

    Thank you for the info etmanning1, even I gleaned some knowledge from it! I actually have a mini-colony of fire and ice (maybe 20+ polyps) already, but I'm a huge ZnP fan and I'm interested in getting some more, but i don't know if I'll be able to afford it in the near future, even at the lower end of the spectrum you gave, which leads me to another question actually...

    So, your answer made me curious about a few colonies I'm debating on purchasing and if I could get your opinion on the deal, I'd really appreciate it!

    I'm trying to price out what a "great" deal (I know that's a relative/subjective statement but your idea of what a GREAT deal is fine by me if you'd be kind enough to give me your opinion) on this purchase would be. I'm looking at getting....

    75+ Sunny D's
    50+ BamBams
    50+ Blondies

    So, these amounts of these Zoas on a few pounds of rock, what would a GREAT deal/steal be, in your opinion? Do you think I should start a new thread and ask the group?? Probably gonna be breaking these up if you are interested in any of them, that is, if I get a "great" deal on them lol

    Sorry for hijacking the thread OP, I'm still interested in the F&I, depending on your ask price...

    Sunny D +-$185
    BamBam +-$200
    Blondies +- $250

    If they are attached to live rock, be sure to QT. You don't know the condition of that tank on a usual day.

    A buddy of mine is holding some corals for me, I have a purple and electric green hammers and a green frogspawn, i'd be happy to trade for it.

    you're pretty far but if you ever find yourself near me, let me know.

    I know this may not be exactly what you are asking for, but I'm local to you (Little Egg Harbor), and I have a couple hammers or other Euphellyia I'd be willing to trade you for.
