sad to say, but my friend sells his pond caught gold fish for $10 each -.- im amazed how many he sold. as for me goldfish/koi's are not for me... i like small fish.
I've never seen anywhere near that price for endlers. Depends on your location though and sources I guess. Swampriveraquatics.com has just about everything to do with endlers. I got my black bar endlers locally and they are suppose to be a pure strain. I got them for $1 each and have given away, sold, and culled hundreds of them in my efforts to get rid of them now. You can get a run of the mill 'unknown' endler from a shop for like $4. The show guppies like full reds and Moscows always sell for more at auctions. Think the only livebearer that sold similarly this time was Xiphophorus Alvarezi.
I like small fish as well, but also fish that get REALLY big which I have no room for... I'm not a big livebearer fan especially with guppies and endlers, I like the species that look more natural.
Some fish always seem to maintain demand, like BN plecos.
