Less than I expected. I got them from a place called Gwynnbrook Farm in Owings Mills, Maryland. This is supposedly the largest Discus hatchery in North America. The Tangerines were $30 each, the Red Turquoises were $35 each and the Blue Snakeskins were $45 each for a grand total of $231 with tax! We picked them up since it is only about an hour away, but they also ship all over. Well worth it so far, we love them!
