Well if you could get some I'd appreciate it, Google images is one thing and seeing live stock is another.

Might as well hang up worrying with price tags in saltwater haha. Nothing in saltwater is cheap, free, easy, or instant. Generally the prettier the fish; the uglier the price tag. And vice versa

Honestly, the price tag is the only thing I don't worry about with fish. These are going to be one of the main display pieces in your aquarium and can live 10+ years. If you choose one fish over another that you like more solely because of the price tag its something you will probably regret.

So true!!! Heres a newer little guy from Ora, different looking maybe not the most beautiful fish. But there personality makes up for it, I put my hand in the tank and he comes over and sits right in it or hides behind it saying pet me. Price was $18 and captive bred.

Looks cool, I'm not a big cardinal fan but I am big on personality.

Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: Red Mandarin
I wish i could keep one of these red mandarins. They are awesome but i cant keep a pod population going. I'll stock my fuge with 2500 at a time and within a few weeks i can maybe catch two or three when i flashlight them in the dark.
