Lol it's a very large store, with 2 more large stores- one is an aquarium warehouse, within 2 kilometres of it.
Anything connected to this hobby is very expensive here, but yeah, when I saw fry at $31.30 I nearly stroked out!!
My 3" Siamese algae eaters were $30 each- I got the 2 for $50
My 3 pictus cats of around the same size were $35 each (and they all died!)
The cheapest fish I own are guppies- they were $5 each
All those wonderful plecos I read about members here having- I can't imagine what they would cost here even if they were able to order them in. The range on offer is: common pleco, gold spot pleco, sailfin pleco, common bristlenose and peppermint bristlenose (harder to find, and outrageously expensive).
I have a lot of outlets to choose from- from chains, warehouses and family run LFS
, and I regularly do the rounds checking out who has what, but competition isn't driving down prices. Anything I can buy on eBay or online from the U.S. I do (especially things like test kits, filters, NLS pellets etc) which reminds me-
I thought while I was in the store I'd pick up an Api hardness test kit. $32!!! . looks like I'll just have to wait 3 weeks to get it online :-( (the master kit retails at $49.95 but I can get it for $32.95 online)
So, yeah..... Kinda explains why I'm always broke!
