    LFS that was closing, was just over silver dollar size, had it for 3 years till I tore the tank down. He was nearly 5" when I sold him.

    Pair of ORA Radial Filefish. Love these fish, there actually very entertaining, their colors and patterns change depending on their surroundings. They're very original, not a lot of people even know what they are and visitors at my house always comment. They cost $59 each from Divers Den.

    $250 for my dwarf golden moray. Why, because he's the only eel that won't get huge and eat my other fish some day.

    $80 for my Pink Margin Fairy Wrasse (C. rubrimarginatus) a year and a half ago. Still thriving with tons of personality.

    There's actually a pair on ebay from Hawaiian collectors for $600 right now. Singles for $250.

    If you buy a pair, do they breed? Or just swim together?

    $100 for a branching frogspawn with 7 heads which has since died back to 3 tiny baby heads. Unfortunately not worth it.
    Frogspawn is my favorite coral and I always seem to have trouble with for one reason or another.

    Oh boy.

    We'll, this guy (rhinopias) was $600:

    And he ate this guy (adult Labout's wrasse I got from Live Aquaria who was 6"!). It was $550, so that made the rhinopias worth $1,150 in my book.

    I later got this guy (gem tang) for "only" $800. I do love having him:

    That brain was only like $250. It was a steal.
