Like the title states
Csb is about 4”wide $400 need
OG bounce on a 4” plate but bubbles hang off about 2”” off plate, bubble are bigger then 50c coins very big unbelievable, won’t fit in a 4” acclimation box cause bubbles would get squished must see in person Message me for serious inquiries on it. I Don’t wanna let go, but I have to. I have had it for over 3 years, most hardiest corals ever owned and unique, I have never seen bigger bubbles then mine. Amazing coloration too.

Low ballers will still low ball you with or without a price lol. What do y’all think it worth?? Cause I’m thinking between $2300-2800
I’m sure there is a buyer at 2k plus somewhere in the US. Here locally you won’t find that I don’t think. Maybe 5 years ago but not now. I’d say if I was to list it I would ask $1500 obo knowing socal though it’s really a shot in the dark.

I’d check R2R for a better idea on a asking price.
you might have to ship it to get what you want.

You should try to take your time selling it. It's only going to get better over time :) I wouldn't be surprised to see you get your asking price so long as the coloration is as good as you say it is. With that said, although I don't support people who try to sell their corals with high pricing, the OG Bounce is the only coral that I know of that's held it's value over the last 6, 7, 8 years. There's a big difference between a low quality Bounce and a high quality piece, I think that's where most of the confusion comes from in terms of pricing.

IMO, this doesn't look like the OG lineage WWC Bounce from what I can tell because it should have formed a full coverage of bubbles on the shroom by now and, although I could be wrong, it doesn't look like it has a purple tipped skirt but that's what makes it unique. There are lots of variations of the Bounce that looks good. Again, some are high quality but most are not. I've seen some of the other pictures you posted in the past. It's quite mind blowing to see it get that way. It's a really nice frag! GLWS

By the way, if you decide to ship, there's a good chance that the bubbles will shrink and will take months to get back to where it once was. It usually doesn't do that but it will in some cases which is going to cause a lot of confusion on both sides. If you can, just wait for the right person; that person is going to have such an incredible time reefing with this piece.

It’s a beauty. Hope you find that baller.

It’s crazy how everyone’s funds have really dried up though. I know for me, the recent stock market, high inflation, and crypto winter has really did a number on me.

Good point but there is also a flip side to this...nothing is forever and that's been proven many times over with corals especially high end sensitive corals. Cash now is guaranteed. No guarantee on coral being around in couple years do to whatever reason/issue you run into.

You don't support people that sell corals with high pricing but there are many that do especially if it's a nice coral there are many that would love to pay big $$$ to have it.

OG Lineage of anything can change in color in different tanks due to conditions, lighting, etc. Also fragging off certain parts that had a special color the rest may not ever grow that part again for example. Rainbow chalice is notorious for this. Then there are morphs and then it gets renamed to something else. Zoas is a good example of this.

If its the actual coral you shipped and bubbles aren't big due to shrinkage well that's not really your fault unless you didn't pack it well or coral wasn't healthy. A simple hard drop of the package by a carrier can cause it to shrink! And condition change of the buyer tank can cause it to not inflate for a long time. There are too many variables and its easy to blame seller. Also if buyer is knowledgeable about corals, and more likely whoever buys / spends this much on this usually is will recognize bubble placement / count shape color etc and if it's the actual one. You can tell how big a bubble may be even when deflated. Also buyer needs to do their diligence make sure you trust the source you're buying from. Remember, buying and selling is a partnership so everybody has to do their part. Keeping corals is a risk and it doesn't exclude buying as well. Know what you're capable of when it comes to keeping corals and fully trust the party you're buying from otherwise don't buy.

But one thing is definitely true. Selling local is less headache on both ends. California is competitive but that's a blessing when it comes to buying.

Yeah, I was just going to tell the OP the same thing. OG lineages doesn't turn out all the same due to whatever circumstances the reefer is going through. After seeing the 2nd picture he just posted, his does actually look like the OG WWC Bounce, hahaha. Like you, I also know that nothing in life is guaranteed but when it comes to buying corals and fishes, especially corals, to "not buy due to risks" goes against the spirit of reefing. With risks comes rewards; we're all trying to put together a nice looking reef tank that we can appreciate and the only way to do that is by buying, or trading in some cases. I bought a lot high quality Eclectus shrooms back in the days and put together a nice collection despite all the nay sayers trying to down play wild shrooms stating that they're all promised melters. Those words mostly came from people who were trying to protect their lineage shrooms :) but I proved them wrong. I did end up losing all of them but it wasn't because they were wild as I was able to condition them for a number of years; some even gave me some really nice looking babies. I lost them due to other unforeseen circumstances. I was still a novice reefer at the time.

Pricing is so subjective and relevant to the condition of the corals so it's hard for me to make good judgement most of the time. What I meant by "not supporting people selling corals with high pricing" is people who are overpricing their corals. There are certainly a lot of corals out there that deserve a high price tag and I thought the OP's shroom here was one of them.
