One way to look at it is like this when buying things from reefers, they need to get ride of the animal for what ever reason, moving, too big what ever... So I know they want it out of the tank fast, thats were we come in the guy/gal knowing that this fish needs to go sometimes in a hurry so the seller has to bend to make a sale. Depending on how bad they want to get rid of the animal depends on how much they will bend.
So the seller says 50 and I come back 35 hoping to get it for 40 in the end.
So yes I expect people selling things out of there tanks to be cheaper the the LFS, not because there used but because they need to get rid of them.
You may not like it or agree with it, but thats the way it is..
I know I got over 4000 into my tank and I knwo that there is no way in hell I would ever get that selling it off..

ok so we all good...i dont kno i was just trying to be nice in a way too....get fish for really cheap and sell it for a decent price...which is a lot cheaper then the lfs....i guess its kinda backfiring...people are assuming that i NEED to get rid of them so they are bargaing..i think imma about to just keep everything i have even though my tank is over crowded!!!

so you think a preowned animal is lessened in value? way to look at a life... thats like saying an adopted kid is half as good...
Not sure I understand you logic here...apples and oranges . Buying items privately allows for the seller to make some money and the buyer to save some money. When you pay "full price" in the store you are paying for more then the animal (or whatever else), you are paying for the over-head as well. This is generally not the case when buying privately. I would expect a discount over the shelf price of the animal. That being said...I think $64 is a great deal for the three fish.
