Hmmm... Same thing. Petrol is about SGD $2.30/L in Singapore.
SGD $0.90/L in Malaysia.

Pizza Hut
$50 for a family of 4.
RM50 for a family of 4 = $17
Lol.

Prices are always different in every country.
Example. If you can charge $50 for a $5 item and people still buy it, would you sell it for only $10? As Long as there is supply and demand and people are willing to pay, prices will always be high.
If a few lfs willing to spoil market and sell dirt cheap, they will crash market price and prices will drop. Just that everyone wants to earn more for less work.

Stingray. Used to be $200+ per piece.
Now? 30-50 no one wanna buy. Cause too much supply not enough demand.

Shipping costs are a big factor in this as well. If the countries you’re referring to are places like The UK and the states, naturally their shipping costs are gonna be through the roof for livestock coming from places like Bali, Hawaii, Fiji, Sri Lanka, Philippines, The Red Sea. It’s much cheaper for us here because we’re in the southeast Asian region where most of the tropical reef animals collected for the hobby are. So naturally in Singapore you can find certain species of angels and tangs, and especially more fragile species like butterflyfishes that would cost more than double in other countries but seem cheap here, because of handling costs and things like that

On the flip side certain things we get from temperate reef places like the Atlantic like blue spot jawfish, they retail for close to 200 when in places like the UK they’re probably less than 50 pounds
