Hmm, seems fair. I may want a sorority from you.

Will your friend also have breeding quality fish? (for a price obviously).

THAT is a good question lol. I'll be noting canadian breeders :p

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.

Hi all! Just an update on estimating shipping costs: later this week my sister and I are going to put together an actual 100%-filled-and-taped package, partly to practice how we'll be sending out the fish but MOSTLY to see exactly how much it's going to weigh (with the additional few grams the fish itself will provide). From there we'll be able to give you guys some fairly precise estimates. :)

To those who are asking about multiples-- YES, this is totally an option, and I totally encourage anyone who lives near to each other to split shipping costs and buy multiples. (Plus I'm a sap and I'd love to see more culls go to good homes!)

@Olypmia and @Sena, yes, he does, and part of the reason he's so into this is because the Canadian market can be kind of thin at times. :) He sells at about $30 a pair for breeding quality, I believe. However, he also sells batches at lower prices-- for example, I got seven ladies from him for $35, and they're all in my sorority now. The batches are discounted because they don't have any health problems or deformities, so they're not culls, but they're not top-dollar fish (ie. poor colouration, tail doesn't spread enough, etc.) and would be hard to sell otherwise. So yes, he's also interested in selling marketable fish too!

I find paying 50 shipping for one fish sucks but having 3-5 or more is best.

35 a pair is a good and fair price. I will be doing decent quality breeding here that will be pretty dang good prices for healthy fish see how well that goes.

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

Sorry guys! A whole mess of family stuff came up this week (and my sorority tank may or may not have caught ich)-- I'll be getting together that fake shipping package and giving people estimates as soon as everything blows over. (Didn't want you all to think I'd disappeared!)
