    yeah I think about $200 seems to be the going rate as I also asked another pet store if they could help me out...and I was looking at roughly the same price...but Im glad i grabbed these guys..the males a little gem...like any fancy goldy...the quality is whats hard to find :)

    $1000!!! You have deep pockets :) They can be "affordable" in the sense that they are hard to get fancy fish - but I wouldn't say they are "rare". Does that make sense? So if you are a breeder that is looking for something nice - they are reasonable. If you are looking for a fan tail - then yes they are expensive.

    They look amazing in that bowl. Nice circle on the tail!

    Yeah - OK I don't know much about goldie pricing, other than it is the individual fish that counts. I just figured they were at least twice as good as others I have seen..... like any fish a breeder will pay for quality.

    Sometimes I guess we get lucky? The best luck I had I ordered tiny ranchu and got large ryukin instead - and they let me keep them at ranchu prices - so we had 9cm ryukin for $24.95! They were nice.

    The hardest thing about goldy prices is the wholesalers are pretty savvy about the going cost on graded goldies - but the public isn't. So as soon as you hit the $99 mark - there is a big gasp about the expensive goldy - in perspective nice fantails are usually less than $6
