I feel like a thief!

I bought this book new from a LFS on Sunday for $20, and found this tonight!

That has got to be a misprint, either that the guy thinks Axelrods IRS troubles make it a collectors item.

Maybe if you absolutely had to have it overnight and added 50 pounds of hazordous chemicals to the shipment.

That's funny.
It's probably just a typo though, supposed to say "$36.00" maybe?
Hey, if it's not a typo you should try to sell it.

Sir, I agree you are a thief. Now go back to that LFS and pay the $316.00 difference.

I can see how it would cost that much. It's a specialized book in a specialized area of fish-keeping that isn't too wide spread, yet the people involved in it are almost fanatical in their devotion to killies. It seems like a great resource and if that's the only way to get it.......
