I recently picked up Denisonii for $5.50 a piece - they run $19.99 a piece at every other store I have found them in. (granted, this was a sale price, but their regular daily price is still less than that). Their rainbow prices tend to be about half that of most other sources, but the catch is you have to catch them on a day when they have quality stock...which can be doubly hard to determine given the washed out nature of rainbows in most retail tank settings (LFS or big box).
The Denison barbs at petsmart are farmed fish - they are relatively new to the market. Before them, they were wild caught which is why they called $20-$25 a piece. I'm sure there are at least some fin stores that are selling farmed fish at wild prices.... Sent from Petguide.com App
