I'm super cheap when it comes to fish, I just can't justify spending alot of money on them. At least now,mayeb one day....

i spent $55 on my tank raised blue tang and so far he was the most expensive. I did spend $40 on each of my now deceased ora clowns and the anthias that also died. :-(

The only fish i would really really want that is pricey is a purple tang. But at over $150 i just can't do it. Also wanted designer clowns but again, at $90 a pop cant pry my wallet open for them. LOL

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

So far I think it's a tie between my Betta and angel at 8$ Lol. I'm starting my SW soon and the fish I'm interested in seem to go for about 50$ each.

$50-$60 works since when I'm spending that kind of money its usually a wild pair or F1 of something so that would be half of what I'm spending on the 2 fish.
