the lady told me that was the price her supplier has them at all the time. so it seems to me divers den might be putting in a huge mark up for profit

Or, it could be that they have different suppliers, bought in different quantities (bulk discounts), have different DOA policies, etc. There are a lot of different things at play in prices.

nope from what I understand according to the sales rep with her supplier liveaquaria buys from them as well. I spoke to the sales rep when she was placing the orders and some of the zoas I wanted out of there WYSIWYG section were already claimed by LA. The lady I buy from runs her shop out of her house in a 155 bowfront so she isn't buying in bulk at all

There are still different things at play, including DOA policies, quarantine procedures, etc. My point is that if you don't like a price somewhere, just don't buy from there. I don't see any reason to bash a place's prices - the store's practices will determine their ultimate success.

I'm not sure on the name. I just bought them from "the candy shop" on Facebook. They are having a huge sale right now on their Facebook page 10% off every thing. A lot of collector corals for great prices
