car that you may have. At Number 10 is Wrought Iron Butterfly Fish
Costing around, $2,700. This is a very rare fish that mostly occurs
in regions of Japan and you cannot find them with any North American fish collectors. It belongs to the family of well-known butterfly
fish and actually the hardiest fish among butterfly. It reaches a size of 6 inches. And they are most fun to watch in aquariums
as they are very active swimmers and makes zip movements in water. Number 9, Australian Flathead Perch

found only in certain regions of Australia. They prefer ghost shrimps and need plenty
of hiding places when kept in aquariums. Occasionally they do come out and show off
their vivid color to some onlookers which pleases them. At Number 8 is Nami Green Arowana
This is another rare fish which cost around $5000. It has almost become extinct and found only
in the Pedu Lake or also called Nami Dam located in the Kedah northern state of Malaysia. Batik stripes is the prominent coloration
in Nami Green Arowana and they are very exciting to look at in well maintained aquarium tanks. Number 7, Neptune Grouper

to catch and to be found as well. The juvenile and adult differ in their coloration
with the juvenile showing a yellow and orange shades while the adult having a prominent
pink coloration. These fishes are admired by many who see them
in aquariums. Number 6, Golden Basslet
Smallest and belonging to the grouper family this fish cost up to $8000. As the name suggests it has a stunning golden
color, but they are very shy fish and does not often comes out to public in aquariums. They are also deep sea creatures and caught
with submersible craft so it is one of the reason for such high price tag for these fishes. Number 5, Bladefin Basslet
Found in the deep waters of Carribean Sea Bladefin Basslet cost around $10,000 and it
is hardly seen on sales. The name comes from the funny dorsal fin of
this fish which looks like blade. It is also one of the rare fish and due to
the difficulty in capturing this deep water reef fish it is priced so high in the market. Number 4, Masked Angelfish
Masked Angelfish cost around $20000. It is deep sea fish, found around the Hawaiian
Islands and being closely associated with coral reefs. It has the prominent black masking on its
face covering its mouth and eyes and forehead. To capture this fish one has to dive as much
as 23m – 174m and no wonder why they are brought out by fish collectors with such a cost. Number 3, Peppermint Angelfish
This is also a rare fish that is costing crazily up to $30000. It is a deep sea water fish and are very difficult
for average drivers to go to the depths where these fishes are found. Peppermint Angelfish has prominent red and
white stripes that are very eye catching. In 2012 only one of such fish was kept for
exhibit which since then added up to the list of exotic collectors who wish to see them
in aquariums. Number 2, Freshwater Polka Dot Stingray
This fish has a price tag of $100,000 and it is not easily found in wild and nor it
can survive in wild because of its genetic mutation on the front of its head causing
it to appear u-shaped instead of round which is normally the case for most stingrays, this
adds up difficulty for it to hunt the shellfish which it usually eats. In captivity the polka bot must be hand served
with healthy diet to survive well. And at Number 1 is the Platinum Arowana
Making the most expensive fish in this list is the platinum arowana costing as much as
$400,000. It has pure white coloration with black pupil
which is the result of a genetic mutation in arowana. This fish is so precious that a micro ID chip
is implanted into it before it attain sexual maturity. They can grow up to 34 inches and live for
more than 50 years if they are fed well in captivity with live foods like crickets and
worms, they also need at least a 300 gallon tank to live well. Like most arowana they are intelligent and
can be trained to hand fed and obey their owner. That’s it for this video do tell me about
