I know, it's quite ridiculous IMO, why would anyone spend that much money on a fish? I mean I love fish, but not THAT much! There's a certain limit on how much I'm willing to spend on my fish...

someone offered like $400000 for the platinum arrowana(pretty sure its in china),there offer was declined. the most expensive fish i have seen was a $300 bamboo shark at a crummy LFS. my LFS has a pair of yellow seahorses for $300,and a mimic octopus for $150

It is horrible that your fish died, but $225 is a lot of money to lose!

He is a very cool fish, did you have trouble getting him to eat?
