    Cool - i will check a few LFS when I am up there!

    Thanks Henk !

    It is !

    I know what you mean - I saw it a few months back for R55 , I have been wanting to get one for a while and the LFS that I normally buy from told me they sell for round R250 and I was fine with that price, What ticks me off is that when it arrives they tell me its R450 cos its a rare fish - It cant be that rare if it sells for R55 . I got a feeling this LFS wants to take me for a ride cos they know I wanted this fish!

    Guys there's a few gobies with the pink bars - make sure you are talking about the right one. I have Amblyeleotris aurora just make sure you are talking about the right species when it comes to pricing
