    Hi

    I'm looking for some anthias, regal tang and a yellow tang. I'd like to avoid a lfs as I struggle to get the fish to eat and can't afford anymore losses.


    Thanks

    hi are you still interested in the regal tang and yellow tang, both of mine have over grown my tank so unfortunately need to sell them to good homes. They both eat extremely well. We feed them pellets and occasionally frozen foods.

    I also have 2 anthias that have also overgrown the tank however the 1 has lost its eye about a year ago but still very healthy, but i would only sell them as a pair.

    Don't want to cause a stir but 1250 for a regal is a bit expensive, even when big like the size of a bank note, yellows can go for that price when they are bigger than normal size, a medium yellow is around R900 at a lfs

    Yes 1250 is very steep for either of the fish. If you want to drop your price by some way, send me a pvt msg and il send you my details for some pics.

    Jazakallah

    I think it's fair for fish that are acclimated to aquarium environment. Large regal is about R700 and for R500 more it's worth getting a fish that will eat.

    Fish in Jhb are more expensive so that's close to lfs prices. I wouldn't sell my flake and pellet eating moorish idols for anything less than R1500 and they cost R400 :)
