I watched this video on how to prepare, package, and ship fish via USPS Priority mail using a 72 hour heat pad and a box insulated with 3/4" styrofoam. Is that something that can be done this time of year?

chewy is getting a goldish sheen to his belly. from head to tail probably 3/4 length of my finger.



Zeus is probably the full length of my finger and is sharing the tank with the striped raph and tb.

Frank......if the bigger ones hasn't consistently chased the other one around.....not guaranteed. but.....really could be a pair. I mean could be a sub-dominant male, they "color down" to avoid aggression, but do me a favor...when you get a minute, take a video of them for at least 3-5 minutes again....let me get a real good look at them.

That's cool......always nice to recoup some $$$. B)

Kind of a shame though....a breeding pair of Argentea would be awesome.

Been e-mailing back & forth w/ Jeff R. about the Breidhori......$74 for 4 of them w/ shipping.......have a few bills to pay from Christmas, but may wait as it's in the teens at night here.......I've already had 5 baby N. Beani die from cold, & that was in April......not shipped by him, but that does tend to make you gun-shy. :pinch:

Im telling you check out www.wetspottropicals.com not bashing jeff but they are great jack shipping was cheaper too.

Great lfs I found in nj gave me 100 fish credit 25% off on 3 rainbows that were 18$ each and 1 for free. And hes gonna try and order me the bocourti so I avoid paying shipping and the minimum charge ( freaking guy wont sell me 1 had to be 50$ minimum order ) and he gave me an issue of amazona for my son.

I just did that...good to know...but he doesn't have Breidhori. How much did you pay for shipping? Shipping rates start @ $35, I was quoted $30 by Jeff. Just curious...they do have a HUGE stock list.

I paid almost 70 on the last order but it was 2 big boxes. Duh thats why it was more than wetspot. The condtion of the fish was way better too (remember how the sd's and capone looked) just take the drive to meet him you have been wanting that fish for a while ask him for the address he would meet you at then google it.
