Default Petro Red Bulu point (Orange)

I have been quoted a price for Petro Red Bulu Point 3 1/2" long at $230.00 each. These are orange not red. Is this a reasonable price?

Over the years we found that some of the fish foods had went to more filler than quality ingredients. So we started having a higher quality food made fresh for us and our breeding stock. When customers purchase our Trophs and Petros the biggest concern is not altering their diets to quickly. We started out just having this food made for our fish, but now with demand we are offering it to you the customer also.

New Just in, Spirulina Intense, first ingredient is spirulina, not filler like most. This is in my opinion the highest quality spirulina on the market. Once you go to the intense you will never go back. It is the only flake I feed my trophs and petros. We have it made fresh, your fish will love this deep green spirulina rich food.
Spirulina Intense: lb.=$15.00, 1 lb.=$25.00, also available in bulk.

Spirulina Plus, a high quality food with spirulina and more protein, Trophs and Petros love it along with all other fish. Devoured by all fish, a great flake.
Spirulina Plus: lb.=$15.00, 1 lb.=$25.00, also available in bulk.

New Just in, High grade spirulina disc, great for Trophs and Petros to graze on. We have found over the years that the disc offer a more natural way for Trophs and Petros to feed by getting face to face and grazing on them. They seem to keep them entertained for longer and strengthen the group dynamics by forcing close contact during grazing. They also keep the teeth down, less battered fins, better group dynamic. Works well with alternating flake every other day.
Spirulina disc: lb.=$15.00, 1 lb.=$25.00, also available in bulk.

Dont see what your looking for, just ask we will find it.

If you have any questions you can email me at LittleAfricaAquatics@hotmail.com or call (502)637-3495, Greg.

That is very high. My brother just pick up 23 3-4" for $1250 from rift2reef. I feel for that size should be price at about $75-80ea. that just my IMO.

Live a good life and in the end,
it's not the years in a life,
