Either emails or in the box of an order. There is a different forum that has a thread where people post the codes as well. I’ve only seen 25% once. There is almost always an active code for 15%. Sometimes 20%.

The 15% was a coupon that came with an order that I received... new code each month. I think that the 25% was a coupon given out at MACNA.

When your order arrives there is a discount code in the box other than advertised on the website I'm not sure.

Just saw this jumped to another page, several others said this already

Alternatively you could go for the $25 or $50 gift certificates they promote on their website right now.

5 Blue Spot Jawfish on there tonight for $300 each... I haven't seen them in a few years but is that price outrageous for anyone else? I used to sell those a few years ago for $100-$120.

Indeed, I remember seeing them for $100 a few years ago as well. Something must have happened that resulted in an increase of price by this much. Any thoughts?

I haven't seen any in awhile but I was largely out of the hobby for the last year and half until recently... But to double or triple in price after a short period of time is a lot... I know locally Flame Hawks went from like $50 to $100 for maybe a year and then settled around $70-$80 now. Maybe something happened to the supply for a bit and they will drop a little in the next few months.
Between yesterday and today they put up 7 and they have only sold one as of now... Maybe they will drop the price a little in a few days if they still aren't selling.

Agreed, $300 is outrageous.
I got my 3 new ones locally for $125 each this year. I consider that a fair price.

Oh, and DD still has the Gramma dejongi (IMO those two are male and female) and the interruptus angel pair. It's been nearly 2 months now that they listed them and it doesn't look like they are able to move them anytime soon. They also had to slash the price of that Indonesian Regal Angel as no one seems to want it with the restricted warranty. Before that restriction, it would have sold already. Let's see how long the new rules last. I could imagine that they are already having an effect on sales.

Yeah, but how 'bout those dirt-cheap Gem tangs? You can get one for like $550 now with a coupon. Those were $3,000 a few years ago!

That isn't really a price drop but rather a market adjustment due to the fact that they come in now so regular and in such numbers that it's no longer possible to use the "it's a rare fish" argument to justify a ridiculously high price. The price went down on those everywhere.

Regular LA/non DD has their (out of stock) BSJ as $170 and $180. Still high, but still not $300. If they were maybe $150 or so I would get one but definitely not at $300

All the Blue Spot Jawfish have dropped in price to $269, still too much for me.

I thought this Blueface x Majestic captive hybrid was cool even if he was all scratched up. Sold immediately.
