Whats your most expensive tankmate?

Hey everyone..

Im just wondering what the most expensive tankmate you have in your tank?

I have a couple of fish which are around the $150-$180 (AUD) purple tang and emperor angelfish, i also have a XL zebra moray $200!

I know there are a few more fish that are way more expensive.. just wondering what fish you rich people have.?

Wow that much for a purple tang. They go for $50-70 here and kings are about $90. The most exspensive fish I have is a majestic angel, but I did not pay full price for him. I got him for $50. His price tag is about $160

My purple tang cost me $90 (and he was just a pup). I want one of those dwarf yellow eels though. What a cute little fishie he is! I just need a tank for him!
