$30.00 is the highest I have seen them for sell. The lowest about $19.99.I live in a barren wasteland for fish but my lfs will do special orders so that is a possibility. What’s the average cost for one? I mainly see $10 from hobbyist to hobbyist and 20-30 for stores.
The one I go to will special order stuff if it's on their list and you ask them. Might be worth a shot.I do indeed have a pet supermarket near me, not where I normally go but it’s only slightly out of the way for me. They haven’t ever had ropefish all the times I’ve been there.
Liveaquaria currently has them on sale for $20 instead of the original $30. I might just keep an eye on them there as time goes on.
