I saw some zebra otocinclus at my lfs this weekend and I thought of this thread. They were $16 each, but I'm still thinking of picking up 5 of them.

My most expensive fish was a $45 koi. Big, bold, and beautiful.

My least expensive fish was a black kuhli loach at about $3 (but I bought 5 of them).

In case you guys were curious the most expensive fish of all time was a tuna sold in Japan for nearly 3/4 of a million dollars. So next time you splurge on a $100 fish, just remember the Japanese man who bought a tuna...

It was bought by the owner of a sushi restaurant chain.

The winning bidder, Kiyoshi Kimura, president of Kiyomura Co., which operates the Sushi-Zanmai restaurant chain, said he wanted to give Japan a boost after last March's devastating tsunami.

I would, they are nice and rare -- there's local whole saler here that sells them for 7 but you gotta own an aquarium to get it. I've been in one of those whole saler aquariums, they are really not well kept.
