Do we count fish that are alive or include expensive ones we bought that died?

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...
I hope he ate that tuna, because for a fraction of that i'll hire a boat to take me out there to catch a yellow fin and bring it home myself

I think the man was a sushi restaurant owner. If I remember correctly from what I have seen of the high-end Japanese sushi market, the buyers actually taste the fish before buying them.

wild guppies - 19 cents each
pygmy cories - 18 dollars

16 gallon - 11 neon tetras, 6 Pygmy cories, 6 kuhli loaches and 1 male Betta
15 gallon - 1 male Betta, 3 platies, and 5 guppies
6 gallon - 1 male Betta

All planted tanks

In My Opinion a Betta deserves nothing smaller than a 5 gallon tank

Look up the Tsujiki Fish Market in Tokyo. It's the largest in the world and where most of the bluefin tuna still caught today go. I've seen a few documentaries that feature it as well as read about it in some book. It's massive (and smelly) but you see all kinds of neat fish there.

I ended up biting the bullet and getting 3 or them (the last 3) they aren't my most expensive fish though. They were only $39 for the three of them.

Meh, food I know tuna goes for millions of dollars for high grade tuna.
Their tails are cut off so you can sample them before you buy them. For a moment there I thought you meant as a tank mate =) billion gallon tank!
