That's a lot! Btw, tomorrow I'm going with my friend to a really cool beach. He caught a small 4" stingray there today.

I had that tang 10 years ago when I was 18. I never even thought about forums. Needless to say I took my LFS advice and put her in my 55. It wasn't long before the side effects of a confined space started showing. I've never felt so bad because you could see her literaly falling apart. After getting back into the hobby I've been doing my research before purchasing anything. I want to work my way back to an Achilles.

Most expensive fish I have ever seen. Ha those options in the poll aren't even near to some of the prices here at the LFS! For a rare pair of African show cichlids that are a proven, 100% breeding pair, it's around 800-2,000$ per fish.

Reason being is because they get fish that probably no one would ever go looking. They have some rarities here that are around 300$! And that's just a tiger fish or a moray eel...

I would not pay over $20 for that fish, but maybe it's because I'm a saltwater guy
