Sounds like a pretty good price to me.

Is it the full deep black dog from Solomon islands?

Price is about market value for an LFS (higher than internet and wholesale) but certainly not out of line at all.
If he is eating, is healthy, has personality then he is worth it. I'd always pay a bit more for something I can meet and make sure is exactly what I want than a sight unseen "deal".
Good Luck....let us know how it turns out.

i have a guiena fowl puffer about 5 inches at my work for 76.99

even though a good price I did'nt get him.... I just did'nt feel like he would have a big enough tank and he also had a chance of eating my starfish

shame, though he would have more than a "chance" hehe, I am sure your starfish thanks you. Always better to leave them at the store than commit to something that will break you.

there was a guy on this forums selling one about 3-4 days ago for $50 I'll try to find the thread..............

This guy in the pic is caught off one island only ,in Solomons Isl.
Unlike other hypes in the industry, I guess this fish price will go up unless they will find it in other places too.
