hi, i was looking around for a few jewels to put in a nice reef tank, when i saw the insane price of threadfin lookdowns. i live in north carolina, and lookdowns are plentiful if you know were to look. i have a fishing licence, so does anyone think i could get a deal on aquarium supplies? my lfs sometimes trade fish to breeders and will take back fish that got to big. well, just thought i would see if anyone else thought this i could get a trade

have you researched how big they get?
If I'm not mistaken, they are open ocean swimmers so I'm guessing they require a ton of room, especially considering they can grow to an impressive size for an aquarium.Don't call it a comeback, I've been here for years.
