I'd venture a guess at 10x the current rate or possibly higher. At the rate of pollution there is no solution....

Latest LEDs, everything else getting phased out.
Reduced fish stock choices due to restrictions in harvest and general human influences

The fish store will be gone, replaced by a telephone/game shop.

And RC will be in 3D, but will still be predominated by posts asking "which angels are reef safe?"

I don't see it really changing much in the next 5 years. Prices around here haven't really jumped too bad over the 8 years I've had tanks. Flame angels are still $35, Large purple tangs are $100. Rock is $3/lb. I don't really see prices changing a bunch. I just hope on some new electric water testers and cheaper lighting lol

Maybe in the next 5 years someone will make a heater that will last more than 6 months too....

What's a QT tank? I don't need one of those, I can just throw the fish right into my tank right? They looked healthy at the pet store

Pavlov's bells just rang for me. Not a far stretch, but I'd say that we'll be seeing $1000 Peppermints and not $20K Peppermints...

Tank bred and raised tangs would be a possibility, along with more angelfish breeding.

$100 purple tangs? Sounds like wonderland, I see them for $200 +
