      You guys may not realize what expensive means in the UK going prices. Their lima shovelnose are like 40 pounds. We are rotten spoiled here in the states. My bolts cost $90 each. I'd not be surprised if Rpul's guy is double or triple that easily.

      Viktor’s spot on this little
      3.5”/4”fish knocked me back nearly £200.

      That is so true viktor. Cats and most exotic fishes is expensive as hell here in europe. Id say rays is getting cheaper over here depending on the species. But you can get a normal potamotrygon motoro for 70-80usd here in sweden. Black rays costs more but still not extremly expensive.

      1 Pound sterling equals 1.3 United States Dollar. So £200 = $260.

      Alice, when get out of the rabbit hole and back in our non inverted world, it signifies "2x the cost".

      I know, I know. It was ambiguous. I couldn't resist. If it was a trap, you win.

      Saw the markings on this one in Pier on the website. Never seen one so light colour. wasn't sure if he was new in or last of the batch that came with the vultures in november as couldn't tell size in picture but Now I know he was new in, from Peru shipment?
      Will be good to see yours develop.
      Did he only have the one Jau, planning a trip over on Saturday as there were a few things on the list I fancied but yet again you spotted them and got there first.
      wanted a Jau and leiarius pictus but very frustrating to see them sold!
