I would never pay over $200 for one.
His color is gorgeous, has good form, but is big eared (which I personally don't like and isn't showable yet)
Even if you did buy him, like said, you can't show big eared offspring so why would you want to spend $1200 on pretty much a pet fish?

Starting bid - $1,000 - and I'm seriously considering it, only thing I'm not sure I like is that the pectorals are semi-clear.. I want solid.. but, doable.
Wait a bit. You'll see more popping up. I wouldn't pay $1,000 for a chance of DOA lol.

What I want to know is how do you know it IS the first? What if some EE breeder bred one but didn't put it up for sale. Or bred one and didn't realize its not a common EE colors so didn't announce it and just kept it. Unless you can contact every breeder who ever bred for the EE trait, there's so real proof it's the first. And thats a lot of money to spend on a maybe.

First or not, unless they have it down on paper and copyrighted as their first, it wont matter. Same way with patents.

Oh good, I'm not the only one blabbing about the price of this fish. I just saw this today and was like OMG...then I saw the seller and was like "Go figure" XD!

+1! Lol he sells his fish for way more than is reasonable. Yeah, sure, he is a good breeder with unique fish, but I don't see anything about the fish he has that would make them worth that price to me! Like the "apache" ones he had recently...just regular old feather tails with butterfly coloring!

One of the few breeders I haven't bought a fish from....but the fish look amazing! They either have the most beautiful fish in the world OR they take the most beautiful photographs of ordinary fish...lol....anyway, a whole bunch of new listings by Majcha Farm, including this one:

Aquastar always over charges for fish IMO and tries to make money off of "unique traitsz" that are usually negative traits such as some of the extreme rosetails he sells sometimes! He's a good breeder though, and I'm happy to buy his fish when they are priced reasonably! The most I have ever paid for a single fish was $100 and that was for one of Aquastars (go figure) Armageddon HMPKs!
