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.

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!
