I think I saw 3 pairs at a LFS in CA. selling for that much, or it may have been more!
I know Aquamart in Denver has an awesome male for only $300ish, I suppose pairs are a lot more valuable though.

Glad to see the prices are starting to come down... Definately one of my fav's, just wish I had a tank large enough for a pair. :D

Your new tank will be 11' long, that should be plenty big.

I would not call it cheap, I would say they are not ripping people off. That is the price they should be!!!

I don't know if I'd say it's a rip-off Scott, I think I saw pairs for a little less $ on a wholesale list, but by the time you ship them I think thats pretty fair isn't it? I'm going to check with AM today and see if they still have that male and how much a pair would run.

Sure, it's long enough, but not tall or wide enough IMO...

ok LOL I was like what?............Anyway I am going to have to see if AM still has that one, damn you Eric for bringing this up! I love those fish too, but am still hung up on adding a trigger to my reef! The bastard better not nip at any corals or I'm gonna hang myself for listening to everyone about how they are completely reefsafe!

Why didn't you get a pair when we in CA? Would have been way cheaper.... And there plenty of them.

Reefkoi

I don't know why I'd want a pair? It's not like they are going to spawn and I'll raise lot's of baby crosshatches right?
I don't like the idea of adding one much less 2 of them ;)
And besides, the one at AM looks better than any I saw in CA.

True, but the fish in CA were stressed and in holding tanks. They would have colored up been sweet. But hind sight..... I'm sure the one AM will be a great addition to your tank.

I'm actually hoping they have sold it, you know what I mean? I have been wanting it, but am still scared to put a trigger in my tank.

If you put that trigger in your tank and decide you want it out, I will get it out. I have a knack for catching triggers either with a hook or with my fish trap.

I could have just bought it for very cheap. We Did some online research and decided it wasn't a good idea for a reef. They will eat smaller fish and I think it would not be wise to purchase him even though he's an incredible specimen. I did however pick up a pretty insane yellow milipora and 2 crazy nice lps from keys island. I'll post pics later.
Russ bought a sweet pink/green Aussie acan and is back at aquamart getting a tenius he wanted but passed on earlier LOL

I just got the corals dipped and put away, they all look good.

I'm kinda bummed after reading the second place horse at the kentucky Derby had to be put down on the track...........i'm an animal lover and I've seen horses put down right in front of me before, it sux...........anyway, life goes on for the rest of us.

Oh, btw folks, the info we got from Keys is cities (I think) is closing the doors on collecting Australian corals. Snag them before its gone. Keys got some nice Aussie acans starting at $40 minus your discount.

Reefkoi

Yep, I guess they aren't shipping out acans right now, cites says they are being overharvested. So expect the prices to go up and if you have one, take care of it!

Chris, there I got my discount at AM. I talked to Dave and he gave it to me. I dont think the girl at the register knew anything about it.

Reefkoi

hmmm I guess she is just there for eye candy and nothing else :) LOL
It's no big deal, I'll just tell him to give me 20% off next time to make up for it hehe

Chris, the yellow tenius looks really good. Not as yellow as that mille you got but still looks good.

Reefkoi

I fragged one side of that Milli, put that frag in the frag system and moved the colony to the main tank. The p.e. is still crazy long, I think under high PAR the yellow will stay light, we'll see.
