View Full Version : Giant Elephant Ear value?

08/27/2014, 12:23 PM
I have an elephant ear mushroom that's 13-14" in diameter when fully opened. It's really too big for my 4' long 72 gal bowfront so I'm thinking of trying to trade it but don't know what it's worth....

Can anyone give me a value of this piece so I know where to set my parameters when negotiating trades?

Well, given that it will eat fish, it may be difficult to trade.

Man that is big! I had one yrs ago, but only got about half that size.
Price is gonna be very subjective and really depned on how quick you want to sell or trade?

Ballpark guess:
$75-100 quick sell
$125 avg
$150+ gonna have to find the right buyer that loves softies!

How long have you had that beast? It is quite impressive. I have a small one that has been in my frag tank for a year. Seems to grow slow for me.

People usually aren't in too much of a hurry to put those in their tank since like snorvich said they sure do love them some fish. My guess is you're looking at $30-50 if you manage to find a buyer/trader.
