Want

*whine whine whine* I want I want I WANT!!!!

Poe has gotten me hooked and now I really want to breed Giants.. they're so darned expensive though Look at these guys..

$70

$120

This guy is a good price ($25) but I don't really want to breed orange HMPK.

I would take this one home in a second! I could eventually mix him with my Multicolor line and have giant multicolor HMs

There's like a million more.. Maybe I can convince my Mom to spend a little extra for my B-day and get me a giant pair (not the $80+ ones, the cheap ones).

That first guy looks almost exactly like my Tifa. Except considerably larger. I bet you could make some good money breeding giants!

Probably so.. I don't understand why some list their fish for normal prices and others for $70+. The cheaper ones seem to have just as good quality.

If I could sell about 10 of my fry for about $15 a piece ($25 a pair) I could easily afford to buy some giants.

I'll definitely do them sooner or later.. hopefully sooner. I really like the last one I pictured.. I'm gonna talk to my mom about him tomorrow and see if she thinks he's worth an early B-day present.

Oh no.. the purple guy goes off in 4 minutes :( I doubt my Mom would have let me get him anyway but I really liked him. He's cheap too since besides import fees I only have to pay for the fish itself (transhipper lives nearby).

I also say the orange one is gorgeous. And for $25? I would totally get him. It looks to me that he has great fins, full ventrals, and he is very nice quality for his price.

Yeah he's nice but I don't want to deal with oranges. Plus two other breeders in my group are already breeding oranges and I think we should have a good mix of what we bring to the table since there are so few of us in the group.

I really want either a Multicolor or a marble but I also really liked the Bi-color (mustard gas) one.. he just looked cool.
