Do you think this is overpriced...

I really like this fish...



But he's $28 (plus shipping). That just seems higher than some of other comparable ones. What so you all think? Here's his page...

His butterfly pattern is more clear-cut than the other OHM's, so yeah I think the BIN is fair at $28.

seems fair to me his color patterns are very crisp and clear and he is quite beautiful. I would say if you like him and can afford him go for it

No way I would pay $28 for that fish. His fins are not anywhere near standard. IMO that fish is worth MAYBE $20 but even that is a stretch.

Then again I'm looking at him from a breeding standpoint. I see uneven rays and reduced webbing and there is something about his ventrals I don't like but I can't put my finger on him.

Thanks for the opinions.

I'm actually thinking about getting a male I saw at walmart the other day instead. He was cute, but in pretty bad shape. I didn't get him at the time because I would have to keep him in a 1 gallon vase for the first few weeks...

He is a 15 dollar fish because shipping is 32 plus 5 dollar import. So your still looking at almost 50 if you get him for 15.
He does not have a color that stands out his patern is good his fin's & fourm are not worth 28. But at the same time he is not bad, he is a good foundation to start a line with. He looks like he will show good traits later in his spawns if in the right breeders hands. Again you would have to get him for the right price!!!

I'm not looking to start a line. I just love his color and pattern.
