Default Pricing Fish!

I was just wondering what do you guys think what is fair market value for
Rainbow starting with Bosemani .
I paid $14.00 for a two inch fish.

Way overpriced, I think. IIRC, I paid about $5-6 for each of my bosemanis.

Lot of factors to consider. Size, health, where you live, type of store you
get your fish from.
I would say a 2 incher for 14 bucks is high.

Yeah, but every single rainbow fish I've seen at Petsmart has really mild
coloration. I guess they get them from breeders that don't have really good
stock. It's best to get rainbows either from reputable breeders or wild-caught.

I haven't seen rainbow fish at Petsmart. (And I've been looking
regularly!) I'm curious whether you (or anyone else) has purchased one
of these colorless fish and taken it home, and whether its color then
improved.


The only fish I've ever purchased there were feeder goldfish to cycle the
pond outdoors.

True... on mine, they are weak colors at best... we have a nicer place, that
DID charge $20 per... now they are more like $15 but they DO have some nicer
specimens...
