What's the most expensive and rare fish in your tank?

What's the most expensive and rare fish in your freshwater planted tank? Feel free to include pix.

Here's mine:

Me too! I accidentally opened this in the "Journal" category instead of "General Discussions". Hopefully a mod can move it to "General Discussions" for me so that more people can view it and add their input.

That's a SICK pleco dude! You should make everyone post up how much they paid as well. That'd be interesting to know.

I was thinking the same thing. Like how much was your leopard pleco?

I hate you Nick! Hah, I am no longer going to be taking any more photos until I get my new camera. Then I am sure I will realize that it has to do with a lot more then just the camera.

Man, I thought I was crazy, but you're definitely getting hauled off to the loony bin before me.

$12.49 at my LFS for this Green Kribensis, you guys are nuts paying that much for a fish, no matter the size. I had to laugh the first time is saw some of the crazy prices on shrimp, a little 3/4 inch b&w shrimp was $600, crazy, no way.

Question is, did they breed for you? Those fish are way too overpriced IMO. Now if they bred for you and you were able to sell off the offspring to recoup your cost, you DA MAN!

To each his own most definitely. We buy what we love! As long as you're single that is.

I was about to say hell would freeze over before I would be able to tell my wife I just paid $1600 for fish. I would however be single after that!

Let's get to the real data, gentlemen. What's the biggest price lie you've ever told your significant other? My fish up there was only $30 with FREE SHIPPING! This new shrimp order from Liam? $15 + $5 shipping! What a steal!
