Default The Cost of Fish

What is the most you've ever paid to purchase a single (one) fish (if special ordered, included freight/ shipping charges)?

And sorry, can only choose one currency

Default Re: The Cost of Fish

The most I have paid for a single fish is $ 4.88 per puffer. They were my first fish other then a poor betta I'm ashamed to admit we had no clue how to care for and like idiots bought into the vase thing (before internet days). I thought the fish hobby was going to be cheap boy was I wrong.

They are absolutely magnificent and much sought after for large display aquariums.
