Hi can I ask where your from? I'm pretty sure I've seen this type of moor in our lfs here in the uk , no where near the $100 mark . Certainly no more tha £20 each which I think Is about $15 . Just thinking I might have to see about exporting these ? Lol nice fish tho.

£20 is more like $30-40.

Dont confuse her with butterfly moor- they are fairly common & inexpensive. Most pet stores carry them. True broadtails (veiltails) are very difficult to breed & usually command a higher price tag than what i paid but she isnt show quality. Show quality would be double or triple the price tag. Too expensive for me though i have seen a few at auction that were very tempting!

Nice looking! Why $100? That's quite pricey, I've gotten one about 7 years ago for like 3 dollars
But lovely fish to have

Read a couple posts up from yours. It's a rare purebreed moor, not the general pet store variety.
