    That's not a bad price at all, as it works out to $11 per fish. Pencilfish are expensive (except for the common beckfordi). I paid $15 each for my Nannostomus mortenthaleri and even more for the N. rubrocaudatus.

    I have been wanting N. espei for years; I had a group back in the 1980's but haven't seen them in stores since then. I see them online now and then, like at The Wet Spot and often Corys-R-Us, so they are available from time to time. And I agree a nice fish. The only species in the genus that maintains the "night pattern" of broken horizontal bars in the day; all other species in this genus have horizontal stripes that break up in darkness. [Matt mentions this in the profile you linked.]

    Almost worth a trip down to Portland...

    Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

    Sounds pricey at first, but there are some fish that demand that kinda prices. Denison barbs are around £20-25 here, so a school of ten will set you back like £200, which translates to appox $260 . . . .
    My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

    Another video I found of them, showing how they interact with other fish.
