Yeah, I have two lfs, plus a petco in my area.. The cheapest damsels are $5 for me, regular chromis', yellow-tales, and dominos.. I use the petco to buy supplies as it's cheaper for a bucket of salt there, but never for fish.. Out of the two lfs, one of them has a system with a lot of ich, so I never go there.. But ouch, I thought $5 was bad, $7 is a killer..

You figure with as much fish we export out of Hawaii, we'd have better prices and more stores, but most business in the saltwater stores here focus more on exporting to the states, rather then the local hobbyists

Took a couple of pics when I was testing water in my 29.. It's funny how whenever I walk into the room, the panther grouper swims up to the front, almost like he's begging for food.. Both of them eat a lot, and everything.. Alternating between frozen mysis, brine, bloodworms, and pellets.. Once every two weeks I'll give them some live ghost shrimp.. 10 for $1, can't go wrong with that..

Newest addition.. Clown Grouper.. Ate the last damsel I had in there within a few hours of putting him in, so I guess that's good..

Yeah, he's doing pretty well.. Got him eating frozen mysis, bloodworms, and brine.. I supplement its diet with live ghost shrimp once a week, same as my other panther grouper and red snapper.. It's funny how when I drop in the frozen food all the eels start popping their heads out because they can smell it..

The petco near my house sells damsels for $3.99 each.. I just don't trust their tanks though, almost every fish I see there has ich.. I think the extra dollar or so I pay at my LFS is worth a disease free fish..

So I wasn't planning on picking anything up for the tank for a while, but I couldn't pass this guy up..

Anglerfish/frog fish was only $20 at my LFS..

The clown grouper is small compared to him!!
