Vendors Come On, WWC. Are you SERIOUS with This?!?!

https://worldwidecorals.com/collecti...m-chalice-6732

$400 dollars for a FRAG of Raja Rampage?!?!?! $400!?!?!

I picked up a frag of this at FFM just a week ago for $50, and it is a larger frag.

They are seriously getting out of control now. I hope that was a mistaken price.

saw this one too, but it was renamed GLOWBUG, so I thought it was super fancy. ridiculous.

Frag Farmers Market was generally a joke, too. I was constantly asking prices and laughing at these vendors faces $1500 for a scoly or $250 for goniopora. not sure theres any hope for us either as these wholesales get tighter and tighter.

I think this is just an ethical thing, as a seller, they have the RIGHT to put any price, as long as they can find a buyer, that is business.

Basically anything that you can add blue lighting to that glows neon is hundreds or even thousands of dollars. I think I need to break out the black light and wipe off the dust!

I get it, the whole capitalism, buyer sets the price deal. And i'm sure there will be some sucker out there buying this, but i also am frightened these prices are killing the hobby. No one new going to give this hobby a shot. No 2nd timer is going to try again. One big tank crash is going to wipe out hardcore reefers with these prices. Its only a matter of,time until kenya trees are off the charts expensive. These guys r price gouging, plain and simple. Taking advantage of a sh*tty situation in Indo and Hawaii

They gotta pay for that new expansion so.e how dont they? I guess they figure why pay for it by selling 1 million corals when we can pay for it after only selling 1000. Haha.
