    I would be too paranoid of loosing a $1000 fish. I get nervous about loosing a $15 fish for that matter. I hate to see anything live lost - unless it's for food, my food that is, not other tank mates food. Beautiful wrasse though.

    1000 dollars is probably pretty cheap for that fish since they are such poor shippers and getting one alive is very rare

    Tamarins are an amazing fish. If I had the proper tank, and the experience I would shell that out for one. IMO one of the finest fish in the sea hands down.

    Such a risk, $1000! Do they gurantee them to live for at least a few days from the shipping stress?

    Yeah, we all remember what happened when that person bought the $3200 gem tang from Live Aquaria and it didn't make it!! It took a lot of fighting for him to get his money back.

    also i think the only reason they were so hesitant to issue credit was because there was no picture of the dead animal

    That is one beautiful fish. The only way I would spend that much on a fish is if I hit the lottery.
