    I bought a 1st gen lightning and was very excited a few years ago. I really hate to see a local shop crashing the market on price. To many shops in Rochester are trying to compete on price. Who wins?....nobody. Now it is spilling over online. There is a reason no other shops are doing this. If you took a step back and realized being the cheapest doesn't make you the most money you might stop what you are doing.

    I'm not here telling a company to just charge more. I just hate to see local shops closing because they can't compete with online. I don't know about everyone else but i enjoy my local shop to go talk through problems and get help. Destroying the brick and mortar will change the hobby.

    (price wars never win)

    We aren't trying to make the most money. That's not what this is about.

    We are a local brick and mortar and we got an amazing price through our wholesaler by comminting to purchase a large amount of what they had.

    This is about hooking up the people who support us with a clown fish that has been unattainable for most due to the large price tag.

    I'm glad I got my pair! No local fish store in Boston area even seen one!
    Personally I didn't even now they exist until I saw this post.
    You should tell everyone in Rochester head over to Boston MA!

    Thanks and can't wait!

    I agree.. this was my first and only chance at owning a pair of these remarkable fish. I started my reef over a year ago and only dreamed of these guys. I give a big thank you to the coral dudes for stepping in the right direction and making this amazing hobby a little more of a realty to us little guys that don't have the bank roll to afford the crazy prices of everything we drool over from coral to fish.

    I completely agree, I'm lucky to see regular maroon clowns in my lfs let alone one of these lightnings. I've already thanked @oceanparadise1 in messages about this deal but I'll publicly thank them for this because they are a brick and mortar just trying to expand and better themselves and there families, so thanks again guys your much appreciated for giving regular people a chance at having something special they may not have had the chance to ever own.
