The rays don't count though, it says Most Expensive Tropical Fish Species (rays aren't classified as fish are they?)
Are you all talking US currency? I'm guessing you are...that arowana geez wouldn't want a tank crash would you...
The most expensive I have seen round here is a few hundred (Aus too)
I'm fairly sure that rays are considered fish...they have gills and can't survive out of water. To me, that makes them a fish.
Motoros arnt to bad for rays no...they are one of the more common rays in the hobby. 700bucks is just stupid for a 4" motoro...I probably wouldnt purchase a motoro under 6" anyway, they arnt to hardy at smaller sizes. Flowerhorns of decent so called breeding will also fetch prices of several hundred dollars.
Aren't the top quality koi really expensive too? This tank of the month has koi that "are appraised at values similar to racehorses". I'm not sure if that's the low end horses or not, but even low end is five figures (before they've been shown unsuitable for the track).
We have quite a few members with Asian Aros, and I believe one of our members has a blue crossback. Yes there was a thread not to long ago with somebody with a Platinum aro keeping it with a normal Silver, it really showcasts the diffrence. I've seen a few pics of people with Zebra Shovelnoses, and there are some high end ray keepers as well. One of our members also has a Leutistic Jaguar cichlid...not sure on price, but that is definatly a very rare fish.
OF course those are expensive, I have always loved the Gin-Rin asagi Japanese imports. Those blacks are beutys as well.
I used to have a low quality asagi, a mid quality Shusui and Tancho Kohaku, I really hate raccoons. low quality was 25$ for a 1" guy and the 2 high qualities were 60$ combined at a little more than 1", together if sold at the size they died they would have probably fetched $200+.
Sharks and rays belong to the same subclass (Elasmobranchii). They are both under the class Chondrichthyes, or cartilaginous fish. Their superorder is the same. So yes, they are both fish. Not sorta fish, but really fish.
Bony fish are under the class Osteichthyes, if you were curious.
