1. What's your favorite saltwater fish that's normally priced under $100?
Marine Betta and miniatus grouper.
For my personal tank - Potters angel. Added this guy tonight. Expect hiding next 2-5 days

2. What makes this fish your favorite choice?

The multitude of stripes and colors

I'd have to go with the super cryptic marine betta.
(Best pic I could get of her).
The times I see her out and about, she looks so graceful swimming, and the blueish (sp?) White spots are mesmerizing. 65 bucks

Powder blue tang for me in this price range. Mine cost $30 at about 3" and is beautiful, well-behaved and constantly grazing.

My LFS had this gorgeous little one in and for $70 I just couldn’t say no. She’s a beauty and I’m looking forward to watching her transition. The lights are now off until tomorrow and she’s already found her little cave where she’s tucked away now.
