    Five bucks for all of it! /DesktopModules/ActiveForums/themes/_default/emoticons/wink.gif

    In all seriousness if you still have some of the sps in two months time I might look into grabbing some from ya.

    Stuff like cap, kenya tree, & so on are usually so cheap that you have a hard time giving them away. Unless it is a nice cap like Leng Sy or Purple. I have seen grapefruit size colonies of SPS go for $500 though too so it just depends on what you have.

    Post some pics & we can help give you some ideas.

    IDK, there is a store wanting 30 bucks for 5 polyps here... http://www.reefhotspot.com/store/product_info.php?products_id=4285
    generally private sales/collectors get much less than that. If you feel you know fair prices already then why do you ask?

    30.00 bucks then you add shipping now you have 50.00 -60.00 in 5 polyps Thats not really a valid point, Most places offer free shipping on purchases over a certian dollar amount, I don't think I've ever paid shipping on live goods. It's usually pretty easy to find people to do group orders or I simply order enough myself.

    Sure, let us say I will give you that. But the company does not make money on the shipping. And you are not shipping, we would be coming to you, so I don't see how your point has any validity. Should we pay you what we MIGHT pay for an item PLUS shipping when it is not even being shipped? I, for one, think not. We told you some fair prices because you asked, you replied with your own (what I would consider too high) prices. This doesn't sound to me like someone who wants to make no money. Hang on to them then. At that price I will pass, and from the feedback of others, everyone else will too.

    +1 to that. Not to mention, shipping isn't going to be 50 bucks per item if you do end up being charged shipping. More like 50 bucks for the first up to 5-6 and then another 5 bucks per item after that.

    Hey there Racecar, Keep in mind that what you first post is sent out to everyone subscribed to the thread or to the forum before so coming back and changing the words in your post doesn't change much.
    You asked a question but evidently don't want to hear an answer. 
    Most people don't try to get retail prices plus figure in what it might cost to ship when they aren't shipping anything.  
    I'm in Des Moines, Does that mean your going to charge me what your charging everyone else plus tack on overnight shipping?  If thats the case then I could go online and save myself about $25 over what you would be charging.

    Personally I think we should just let racecar do what he wants. He/she already posted that he "wouldn't sell to me anyways" and then deleted it. All I was trying to do is be helpful to someone who was seemingly trying to move some livestock that he/she didn't know what to do with. Unfortunately one cannot help the unwilling.
