So I'm considering this sp. kelberi but I'm not sure yet as it costs roughly 8-9x as much as a normal golden kelberi. Any thoughts from the community for the cost justification?

I think I recall some kind of "Spider" name also?
I too remember that name being given to them Krich.

If you like them and think they are worth the mark up then go for it. The price on bass has gone down dramaticly. Great for the "true", keeper that are in it for the beauty of the fish. Bad for those breeding for the almighty $$$. That being said, those kelberi aren't really seen for sale over here in the US so like most rare collection points or hybrids they should be worth a bit more.

I don't know exactly how to translate it but it's not called sunflower/spider from what the supplier is calling it. I'm visiting NYC for the holidays and hoping he still has one left for me when I get back. It's around the price of a mid grade gold xback arowana for reference. Lol

The Asian aro vs. Kelberi in terms of price in US...Asian aro will always be more expensive. They are illegal here so they will always cost more.

But with any fish. If you like it, but it. If you enjoy the fish that much and can afford it then go for it.

most definitely correct on that regard, Im just contemplating because i can get a whole pack of Pb like orino, xingu, kelberi, azul for the same cost. However these 'spider' sp are considered rare finds and don't come around that often. Just wanted to see if the Pb MFK community thinks they are worth it. If it had red eyes I'd probably snap it up 200% though. Lol
