WTS Extra Large Christmas Rock


Recommended Posts

Woah bro! Is this even a justified amount to sell the coral? I am appalled by how high some of reefers are selling the corals in this forum. I went to madpetz and a huge Christmas tree coral was going for $700 plus. When I started this hobby about 3 years ago, it was the goodwill of some nice Reefer bros selling corals at an affordable price that allowed me to start the hobby. I know this is a rare and special coral but to sell this at $1200??? Please don’t make the hobby an opportunity to earn off it.

Can't agree with u more. Been in this hobby since 1989 n have seen the prices skyrocketing. 

Thks 2 all the restrictions here n there. Mind u , fragging is so  common nowadays n the advancement in the various paraphernalia have made reefing so much more  precise.  Yet...duh...

So, with quotas on the payroll n everybody wants a cut of the cake. Maybe...just maybe...

The above is my personal view. No offence ment.

For the last 20 years one big pc of Christmas rock only cost $25 .... and the salary till now didn't increased that much ....

I really missed the old days ... those were the days ....

Price of corals and fishes are also like stock market. Purple Tang was $180. Now you get for $90 even. Does that mean the buyer who got it for $180 sell it for $90? Its good to tell that LFS has a different price tag instead of jumping to conclusions that everyone was out to make money by ripping off other reefers. Frankly, a few months ago, XL Christmas Rock was over $1000 in some LFS. Demand and Supply. Since Madpetz has more available (I was there yesterday too), the price could have come down. Well, enjoy reefing. Happy New Year guys.

Agree. Its all about supply and demand. I remember when fiji fox face is still new. Theres only 1 LFS selling it back then. I bought it for $150. Few months later other LFS start selling it then the price reduced from $150 to $40-$60. Same goes to whats happening with flame angle now. The demand is high but supply is low which makes this fish more expenssive than usual price yet we dont question Those LFS why they are selling expenssive than usual right?

I think we shouldnt jump in conclusions. We dont know how much the seller bought it from unless ofcourse its very obvious that the seller is purely doing buy and sell.

For those who are active and long enough in this hobby, you would have probably identified some who goes into auction group, get cheaper corals and sell at "retail price" of a more exp lfs. 

This cycle is not new and was partly the reason why hobbyists sales and trade of corals were banned in the past. 

Nonetheless, buyer willing seller happy. Just dont spoil the market until another ban comes about. 

For people who are not convinced about the item, ask to view to avoid discrepancy. If his rock is really huge or quality is really good, then the price at this current crazy market rate can be justified.

I decided not to sell since the coral is under appreciated and cause so much spark.efbcf4da5c0ea4cc0d14ebe91208542b.jpg

Need to consider freight charges, etc. Pricing will depend on source-supplier price, freight charges, transportation, overhead cost, profit margin, cover possible lost due to death, etc. So some lfses running on lower operating cost and doing fast turnover sales will be selling competitive compared to those high overheads and high profit margin lfses. Is demand and supply eventually in long run. So got to support those lfses selling competitive. Quality, customer service, etc will be subjective and for individual to experience.
