    Hi All,

    without naming anyone.
    just got back for a visit to a LFS close to me.
    i kid you not these are their prices:

    Bangai Cardinal: R381
    Anthia(Squamipinnis): R705!!!! bought one last week for R205
    Percula Clownfish: R597!!!
    Green Chromis: R394!!

    a quick phone call to an alternative LFS showed each of these fish to be way more than double the price.

    i get that they can ask what they feel, but this is insane.
    i used to sponsor said LFS often.
    wont be returning again.

    I think that shop is a bit off....... prices in cape town seem fairly much the same at the different shops.
