That prices is absolutely obscene lol these guys are slow growers, but their demand is not nearly that high. Definitely would recommend giving Go Fish a call and see, they breed their own I believeThank you for the input! I just spoke to a lfs in Frederick, MD and they’ve got some but it’s 100 bucks for a 5” fish. I miss the circa 2010 prices lol
the last few times I’ve seen them at HOT they were either riddled with ick or deformed/unhealthy. They also ask $30 ea for 1-2” fish. I’m not a fan of HOT in general, personally.House of Tropicals in Glen Bernie would prob be the farthest I’d want to travel. I’m coming from chantilly, va and that would be about an hour for me. There’s not many options in Virginia unfortunately. Thanks to both of you!
