Buying from a breeder??

I just purchased a beautiful crowntail from Thailand, and I was wondering if anyone had done this before, or knew if it was worth the money? I know I'm kinda a noobie, but oh well :p

The expensive part is the transhipper and their fees and shipping from them.

Fish from overseas tend to be a bit more fragile - they sometimes have certain issues such as easily get SBD, etc.. they also (from what I understand, mine are still alive) don't live quite as long for us - but that isn't always the case.

If you love the fish then enjoy it and ignore the cost :) But honestly, their fish isn't any more special than an American breeder's.. they just are better at taking pictures :)
