They seem to be rotating sales from one group of fish to another during the holiday shopping season. Anyway, was a happy camper to see the $1 price tag on the angel I picked up the other day - some kind of zebra lace, but the stripes have morphed into a reticulated network over the fish's body - with a deep green behind it.
I was thinking that if they stayed alive for you, you could totally make a serious profit off of a trade in at a local shop. Most pet shops for a Medium sized Angel start anywhere between 15 and 20 bucks.
The one here has them about the size of a quarter, every now and then they get shipped larger ones, about the size of a half dollar. Its honestly up to the place they are shipped from, but I have never seen ours get them smaller than a quarter.
The size of these $1 fish sale are pretty small. I got 3 silver dollar no bigger than a nickel not too long ago from them, 1 is remaining out of the 3. Could have been from bullying by the larger tetras and ohter factors.
Yep. The ones here were dime-nickel sized. The one I brought home looked happy and at-home for three days ... then vanished into the wilds of the 75g, which houses enough shrimp and snails to make short work of a paper-thin carcass, if such exists. (T_T)
