    You wont find them in a shop. 2k plus for a fish thats around the 4cm mark, I highly doubt LFS owners would take that risk

    its highly impossible to find any under R1000, it there are please share the details!

    the average list price is about R2000 for a small 3-4cm L046 plus shipping costs so you should expect to pay R2500 - R3500 min!

    Maybe some pics of the royal, zebra and tiger, from the pros to clear up the confusion?

    without completely hijacking the thread,

    What does anybody know about flame plecs?
