six line wrasse- $19.99- $24.99
Rainsford Goby- $25.99

I see a potental issue with this. I have found prices even for livestock to differ drasticly from one part of the country to another. For example I have seen prices in FL and the west coast to be lower than prices in other parts of the east coast like TN and VA as well as other areas in the nations 'heart land'.

At my LFS, tack on 100% more than online for dry goods. Livestock is a little expensive, but I'd rather buy or special order my livestock (if they can get it) from my LFS.
