And on another note it is awful how they treat their fish but by buying that fish your just telling them to keep stocking since there is a demand and $5 isnt a deal for that fish by any means...

Judging by the size and coloration $5 is a good buy, you normally won't see them for less than $10 if over 2".

And yes, not a male Auratus and is a johanni

We have one pet store here and that's petsmart and I know he would have been more than 5.00 there I wasn't looking for a deal I just thought he was a beautiful fish and what a shame it would be to let him stay there and possibly die. So I decided to give him a home in my nice clean 100 gallon tank. If he would have been 20.00 I still would have bought him. I can promise you my five dollars didn't set off an alarm at corporate that said buy more fish!
