    Question Wondering......

    Why some lou han still so expensive?

    My previous one dies on tuesday
    I went to shop for one on yesterday
    I saw one selling at $18 and the other, at $220!
    $18 look normal like my previous one but the other, with his head having the lump.
    Too expensive for me, i make a trip to another fish shop.
    Saw 2 lou han and ask about the price. Each cost $120 but the head not so big.
    In the end, i ended up with 9 gold fish. Cute Cute little one.

    $220 for a fish, no way man. Unless buy liao n will strike next week 2.8 millions toto, i confirm buy the lou han. What if I brought liao, reach home n fish die, right? Furthermore those louhan not as active as gold fish. You see the gold fish swim ard n play with the air plump, very entertaining one.

    I Actually saw a school of Lo Han fish in the canal outside NKF building (can't remember the road name). I think they were the only types of fish in that canal, not surprising since these fish are carnivours. Maybe can go there and fish and sell hehehe.

    It depend on how much you willing to pay for your hobby.... i mean if your hobby is breed/keeping fish.
    my uncle bought some COBRA discuss from oversea. 1k SGD each.....

    like you willing to pay a coupel of thousand for a camera... for others, NO WAY.
    and to me, i like to collect watches, antique watch mostly....
    so, it's not the value for the fish... but the value for the hobby

    My fish pond at home only has small goldfishes and guppies - $3/$5ea.... , until my dad's friend came and gave us 6 koi fishes worth ~$400ea?

    Not to forget $10 worth of feeding fishes (which apparently the bigger fishes don't eat till the feeding fishes grew big and have babies)..that's around ~100 small feeding fishes
    eat. drink. shoot

    there is still quite a bit of luo han hobbyists ard... u can take a look at the fish forums like arofanatics....
    so when there is the demand, there is the market.

    LH market going to vanish soon. Fighting fish, arowana and gold fish etc... are long time fish. So, invest on a LH, i rather spend it on the arowana but must train it to eat dry food, not live one
