I have always wanted to try different types of fish besides just what we are offered in the United States. When I mentioned to my friends and family about my wonderment of how some fish in my fishtank would taste, they thought it was funny. Although, at $25-$50 a fish here it better taste good!

oh..$25-$50 more expensive to me to pay. we will pay $5-$8 only for them in Thailand because there have many fishs. we will pay more expensive for import fish such as salmon.
