Oh I am... I won't be selling fry for a crazy price either.

EDIT:
Being that these were are already in the states before it was made public that they were endangered. This was truly a mistake on my behalf. I'm sorry for thinking that these fish were in the states before they were imported. I was under the wrong impression... I didn't lie about anything and want to be forthcoming about that fact. it was a simple mistake. But regardless, they Are in fact IN the states now and should be bred to make them available to discourage collection of any WC.

So why not breed them and get the fry to those that interested in helping the cause, so that people aren't tempted to get Wild Ones... Heck there are two groups on this forum and people could buy fry from each group, keep them separate until they are able to be vented and then swap males and sell off the other group to someone else.

It's a pretty simple concept. I don't see how some don't get this.

But buyer bewaaaaaare. You might get put on a wall of shame...




P.S. Meanwhile, efforts can be made for making people aware of these situations in the future. Everyone wins.

I always wanted to see what the future was like.
All kidding aside, those are some awesome looking fish. I really like the look of them, they must look even in better in person. Glad they are in good hands.

Thanks for the support, from everyone. I will do my best with them.
