I only know of two breeders close enough for me to think about buying from. And one of them is in Sweden having her baby. So, I'm a bit out of luck.

Sounds like normal shipping to me too. It's probably higher than you remember because of gas prices. It's not AB sellers charging more, its the shippers. Gas goes up, price to ship goes up.

Tanks- 55 gal(in progress)-Common pleco, Angels, lemon and rummynose tetra, blue rams; 29 gal planted- rasboras, corys, otos, clown plec, shrimp; 10 gal- juvenile goldfish; 6 gal planted- betta

Other Pets-Maggie(Tricolor Paint Mare),
Lily(Sun Conure), Zoe and Melina(Budgies), Leonardo- Bearded Dragon, Pilot and Phoenix(Golden Retrievers), Beckham(german shepard/akita), Myrtle and Richard(hermit crabs)

Ahh that makes sense. Im deciding not too. I found a breeder in the province next to mine and shipping to my door is $20.00CDN Or i could drive 2 hours to see all the fish if i wanted too! Haha.

That sounds awesome. I wish I could find some breeders out here in BC (peferably close to Kamloops). It is unfortunate that it is so expensive to buy from AB.
