Title says it all.. I want a female Festae, cant go thru Rapps or any U.S. supplier. Am aware of Spencer Jack in Winnipeg, looking for something I dont have to fly in if possible.

I wish you well, my friend. Sorry I can't be of help. :pinch:

Maybe local aquarium clubs? B)

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.

Thats rich Jack.. I am the local aquarium club! I just contacted the guy in Winnipeg, who is about the Canadian equivalent of your Rapps. He responded instantly(impressive), had some in January, gone and none expected. Found a guy on MFK had some near Hamilton.. gone. Wont give up, may have to punch out some overtime and blow high dough on a Rapps delivery.

Update.. several back and forths with Canadian importer.. Ecuador exporter not shipping for unknown time, Columbian exporter having trouble with local cocaine thugs. Wild caught Festae about to become very rare and valuable. Does have most of the time P. Loisellei and P.Motageunse. CA easier to get than SA. May have a change of plans. Wild Mota sounding very good!

If that's the case....get all the Festae you can from Rapps & corner the market!!! :evil:

Damn the torpedoes...full speed ahead!! B)

BUT RT Motas are cool fish, & VERY strong in The Dark Side.....& Loisellei are beautiful. I had a breeding pair of Loiselli....stunning in breeding dress. B)

Import and border fees are outrageous Norm. I looked into some fish from Rapps last year, and all said and done was over $400, and I would still have to drive 3+hrs to Toronto airport for timely pickup. Getting from a non-business, say a forum member is a crapshoot. If they found a live fish without proper red tape, then it gets sent back to sender, and I get zip and sender likely gets a dead fish returned.

Wow that's a lot of hoops to jump thru , if you have to drive to Toronto you might as well go stateside and buy them yourself & smuggle them back across.
