Bombalurina asked (rhetorically) in one post (about a related fish), "Does it poop gold or something?":

Does it poop gold or something?

He is GORGEOUS. But $500? Never. Amazing fish and wonderful work by the breeder, but that price!

1 solid red VT Male. (He's my baby!)

Yeah I was all excited ready to order him then wham! I actually have no problem paying top dollar for great genetics like up to 70-100 even. 500? C'mon man. I was just shocked so had to share.

Ąt first, I thought maybe it was a typo and they meant $50. But then I looked at their other auctions and the fish were all $200. So I guess it's not a typo. He's a reallllllly pretty fish. But I cannot imagine paying $500 for one fish.

That is an extremely well-formed fish, but AquaStar does, to my knowledge, have a reputation for overpricing his fish by a fair margin.

Life.

You all have missed the why, for a second time....It's is a king/giant butterfly halfmoon fish that is damn near perfect, The seller is the only person I have seen with such a quality fish and has been breeding and culling hard to get those results........If it was my fish he would be priceless and I would not sell him at all, but if I were trying to sell him I would make sure people realised he was a king/giant and I would start the bidding at 200 and let the chips fall where they may...

I do agree with you, but some people do not see that. If I was looking around AB and saw a fish like that at 200 I would think nothing of it and leave because I'm not a breeder and I don't want a fish that is $200+ let alone $1,000!
Some people just buy for the fish, you would have to get just the right buyer.
