The going rate for a Percula Clown? #1
Simple question really, whats the going rate for a Percula Clown? Going to pick one up tomorrow but my LFS have become a little over priced on some things and i want to make sure im not getting conned tomorrow.

Also what would you guys expect to pay for Turbo Snails? 3 for a fiver sound good to you?

I paid £2 per Turbo but they are very large.

£34.95 for 2 clowns.

Think it was £19 for one, might be £17 ish.

That sounds about right then, Swallows are selling them at 17.95 each from memory although knowing my luck i'll go in there tomorrow and they will have just put the price up to £50 a pop!

I paid £30 for a pair of black percs, and £10 for 4 turbos but they were big, got my last ones for £2 each but not as large. Enjoy picking your fish.

The ones I bought are quite big in comparison to the rest I've seen for sale. Similar to that in their display tank (i.e. not for sale).

Re: The going rate for a Percula Clown? #8
baby percs I've seen for a as little as 12 quid each.

Oasis had a LARGE breeding pair for 90 quid. they wernt the best looking couple either.

We bought an established pair for 50 quid from 'a drop in the ocean' a while back. I personally thought it was a great deal as they are very bright, the female is slightly darker than the smaller male, and they dont have any odd markings or spots or anything like that.

They have taken to the bubble tip anemone we purchased, the male more than the female. Now when I put my hand in the tank, the male clown gives me a real hard time.

A drop in the ocean, Manchester

its just off junction 9 of the M60 on barton road, just after the bp station, first shop in the block, carpark at rear..
its an amazing shop, can be a bit pricey, but where isnt?

if they havent got it, they will get it for you. they have a cold water and tropical section, then the marine section which is as big as the cold water and tropical put together. Great selection of fish, corals and inverts.

something new almost every week. they had a small shark in there last weekend for 225 quid they have plenty staff who know their stuff. Worth a visit even if yur just browsing.

Aquamania, Blackburn

Visited Aquamania in blackburn today. Very disappointed. I was very concerned about the state of their tanks, and particullarly the state of a manderin fish they were selling. their marine tanks had a really bad case of red slime algae. Who ever is the manager there should put a rocket up some of their staff and get it sorted. they should feel ashamed. The rest of the store was cool though. Bloody expensive though - on the door it says best deals in town..............must be the only stockist in blackburn then?
