rev who would you contact to get wholesale cost on fish and coral? I have been thinking about starting a store for the last year....And am seriously considering doing it. The LFS here is overpriced and can be because they are the only one in about an 1 1/2 hours away....Competition would be good.

OH MY GOD Rev. Are you kidding me? Some of those mark ups are crazy. Like the powder blue and the sharpnose puffer. I can't believe it. I mean I know a lot goes into supporting the fish until resale but Holy Crap. I feel robbed

I am seriously not kidding!

One thing to consider is this. To ship from this supplier to Ga cost $0.80 a pound. There are however closer suppliers who's prices are not as good, but the shipping makes up for it.

Howdy guys,

Being from Australia the prices are alot different, heres some of the prices for the fish i'd pay.. For the ease of confusing everyone i'll convert the aussie dollar into american for all of ya!

Emperor Angel (3-4inches) $100.00 in oz - 180
Yellow Tang (3-5inches) $25.00 in oz - 150
Powder Blue Tang (3-5inches) $65.00 in oz - 80
Blue Hippo Tang (3-5inches) $75.00 in oz - 50
Auriga Butterfly (3-5inches) $35.00 in oz - 25
Damsels (Blue, three stripe, Domino) $5.00 in oz - 7
Queen Angel (3-5inches) $75.00 in oz - 400
Sharpnose Puffer (2-4inches) $30.00 in oz - 30
Humu Humu Trigger (2-4inches) $35.00 in oz - 25
Clown Trigger (2-4inches) $85.00 in oz - 90
Firefish (2-3 inches) $20.00 in oz - 15
Royal Gramma (2-4inches) $25.00 in oz - 100

the big difference is the queen angel.. i'd pay minimum of AUD $350 here for one of them.. which is about $400 USD..!!!

Im trying to track down a king angel at the moment.. (MONEY MONEY MONEY!!)

i would pay 150.00 american dollars in aust. for a yellow tang? That is the question that I was pondering.

Queen angels are 400.00? and a royal gramma 100.00?

Prices vary greatly in the Philadelphia suburbs; from store to store the price may vary by 2-3x!

A little store nearby has very good deals. Never saw an ich outbreak there, once in a while some minor bacterial problems. Here are some prices I remember there, most fish are juvenile.

Assorted clowns (false percula, clarkii, maroon) - 9.99
dwarf angels (lemonpeel, coral beauty, bicolor) - 19.99
Heni banner fish - 27.99 (med)
Pacific blue "hippo" tang 39.99 (small)
Blue Koran Angel - 25.99 (small)
Purple Pseudochromis - 9.99
