    Back in the 90s I paid 175 for a 3ft blue ribbon eel, had him for 2 years and sold him back to a different store

    If you ever come to Denver you need to check out Stone Aquatics my store with ICP-Analysis running in house. I have around 1200 fish in stock right now. While it is true that people said I couldn’t sell fish over $200 I have found that if you stock it people will come.

    I don't really have a limit, if I like it. I'll spend $200 on a frag, and have several of those. $300 on a fish. Purple tang, Achilles, whatever. I hate to break it but I think I spent $50 on my magnificent fox face lol. But some spend thousands on art. To me it makes more sense to spend that on something living. Although there are always exceptions, when I make a large purchase it's planned, and I can assume whatever it is will be around for many years.

    I haven't seen a lot of ribbon eels lately. In the 90's they were everywhere. Same with Snowflake eels. I used to see a few at every fish store (even the chain stores). Now I may see one every so often. I guess with more people keeping open top tanks, eels just don't work.

    If I lived in Denver, that nem would cost me more than that - those clowns are hosting it and, I'd hate to separate the trio :)

    I agree I just found a 3ft beautiful Ribbon eel at my LFS. They had it for 3 weeks and was told it was nibbling at food. I just set up a swim tank and moved my Moorish Idol that developed a taste for corals and thought his would be a great companion. He ate Rosie’s off a stick the first night and now have him eating LRS and shrimp off the stick. Not very expensive paid $79 but I know their price go way up once they change colors. I was planning and open top tank but that changed with this guy so the lid is in and tighten. [​IMG]
