If your looking for rare start with Dave's site,

Dave's Rare Aquarium Fish-Price List

Have you researched any cichlids? Picking a continent will be a good start whether it's africa or central/south americans. If your looking for color start with lake malawi cichlids especially peacocks.

But if you do go with Africans stay away from Mbuna they eat plants.
South American dwarves are nice.
