Oh, now I do feel the need to defend my luteus cardinal, which is gorgeous.Some fish that are not worth the price forme are: mismarked/mutated clownfish, borbonius anthias, any cardinalfish, any bristle tooth tang, genicanthus angels, flasher wrasse (because of lifespan, not that I dont like them). I'll think of more I'm sure...
I'm going to irritate people with this but honestly when fish are well into the thousands of dollars range, I simply do not see how one can get that much value of a given fish even if it lives for years. And with everything that can go wrong that is just an insane amount of money to flush down the drain. I would say that gem tangs or blemish tangs top my list of fish that people pay stupid amounts of money for and see very little in return IMHO.So I have seen a lot of expensive fish and notice some of the (Less Pretty) ones have a hefty price tag that I know I would never pay for.
So I was wondering what fish you think are way too overpriced based on looks and etc.
Mine is going to be Golden Rhomboidalis Wrasse, I just do not see why people would pay $200 for them. (Sorry if offending but)
So name away and why!
Agreed, "expensive" is a term that is generally relative to income/budget.Your point is well taken, but thousands of dollars for fish are for guys who can afford them ... same as exotic cars over $100k the difference with fish of course that they will eventually die, hopefully it will live a long time and the owner will enjoy the fish.
