well i have seen the same fish in the fish store many times. i think in one place it was 120 for the pair (but that is the same store that tryed to get my to pay 100 for a parir of clown fish) but the other lfs that had them i think they were like 40 for one. if not less. i see them more and more. i really like them

but as to the question i think the most $$ fish i have seen was a pair of seahorse. they were 500 for the pair but that was before they knew they were endangerd. now they have not idea what to price them. (they were just put on the lsit so they could still sell them) last time i heard fromt hem they were thinking maybe over 1,000 for the pair but what do you price some thing like that?

Yes, how did they come in on live rock? I had no idea they could survive- unless your LFS ships LR in a completely different manner than mine... ours come in bags with little water in the bottom and soaked papers to keep the tops moist

Thats because these fish come from mexican waters and cannot be legally caught or shipped to U.S. Its very rare that they would even make it to your store, and they could probably get in a lot of trouble for selling them.

I've never heard this before as they are on price lists every once in a while from a few suppliers. You can usually find them on ebay as well.

I don't know about rare but hard to find in my area is the Male Scott's Fairy Wrasse a beautiful fish. I have only seen 2 and bought 1. He jumped through a small gap in my tank top one day
I could find one on line but I like to see the fish before I buy them. I have seen some of the black and white clowns, the LFS in my area had a total b/w with no orange very cool and not for sale.
How about the Black Tang..... I have only seen 2 of these guys ... very nice fish.
