What is your most expensive zoa per head?

    I'm Spidey and I'm addicted to zoa's and have paid some big bucks (in my opinion) for single and double heads.
    Peter's Rising Sun zoa's, 2 heads $89.99 which makes it $45 per head.
    I've paid $30/head for many zoa's, but the above made me think twice.

    I guess my most expensive one would be my armeggedons which go for 45 per head...
    But theyre totally worth it!

    Wow, you paid too much! I can get 3 heads for $29.99! More than one site sells them for that.

    Spidey - You got pics of these Rising Suns?
    My most expensive would probably be my single Xmen Palythoa..
    Darn thing still hasn't grown anymore..
    Not sure about a price, though? haven't seen many around..

    Here is a pic from the site I got them from. There is also a story attached to the zoa's and I'm a sucker for sad stories

    Peter's Rising Sun Zoa (limited edition)
    Peter Choo
    August 9, 1994-September 11, 2007
    Proceeds from the sale of this coral will be donated to the following charity, you may donate directly if you do not wish to purchase this coral:

    New York, NY 10065

    Peter celebrated his 10th year anniversary of diagnosis on 7/31/07 as he was diagnosed in 1997 at age 2. He has never been in remission though. As he became a teenager on 8/9/07, our Roman Catholic parish priest got an instant approval from the bishop to give Peter the Confirmation on his 13th birthday. On 9/8/07, the priest came to our house to give him the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick. Another blessing for Peter. Back in 1998, Make-A-Wish-Foundation fulfilled his wish by sending my family to the Vatican City to be blessed by the Pope John Paul II.
    Our Peter passed away very peacefully in his bedroom on 9/11/07 (Tue) at 7:45am while mommy, Jonathan, Catherine and daddy were watching.
    His message to us on 9/4/07, exactly 7 days before he passed away, was "This is the message from God truly - Keep it up. Stay happy. Don't ever look down," when he had a miraculous bump after platelets transfusion from 2 to 212.
    Peter had 524 bags of platelets and 172 bag of red blood cells of transfusion lifetime. May God bless you all.

    Most expensive polyps i have at the moment are bambam orange. they were labeled 3 head frag for $20 but the guy I asked to get them thought that was just too much so he gave them to me for $10.
    I do have some sweet frag soming from the ZFA thing, then i will have some expensive polyps that i got for a steal.

    Jeeze you must have a very good LFS or something. My most valuable zoanthids/palythoas I have are my armageddons, which rebel got his from. Dunno the exact going price, but I paid $2 for a 5 polyp frag a lot of months earlier from a friends dad for a frag. He never told me they had a name or anything.

    Per polyp, I paid $40 for a darth maul (became 3 polyps in 2 weeks!).
    Per single purchase, I paid $100 for a 25+ colony of spiderman zoas.

    I hope nobody is that foolish that they will pay $200 for a single head of ANYTHING! If the head comes with a 100% valid birth certificate I still would not ever, never ever pay that amount.
