Looking for Female EE

I just got a male EE today and I want to breed him this summer but I can't find a female for him. I looked on aquabids and a few other sites and came up with nothing. Is anyone selling one or know where to get one?

I went on Aquabid earlier and found about a half a dozen. None of them are listed under EE or Elephant Ear. It's "Big Ear(s)" or "Dumbo". Most of them are salamanders also.

Happy Hunting!

No problem, I like to cruise through there and look at the cute little EE girls who would compliment my EE boy nicely. There's one on there who's almost pink! She's labled as salamander too though. I think she's one of the last few.

careful with that one. 8U my Todd was listed as a "Rose Platinum", and ended up being a rosetail. :B

but, yeah. big ear and dumbo are the 'official' name for them. Elephant Ear is a term i only hear on here. x:

Blackwater's is sold.. I got my EE girls that I'm going to start breeding here shortly from MN Betta Shop. It's the only place I found that gets them in semi regularly.

Under "shipment updates" will be the videos of what are for sale - every other Wed they get their imports. For females you will have to contact him and have him hold them out for you, as the female videos don't go out the same time the other ones do.
Just contact him via the site, tell him what you want, and then call the next day to make sure he pulls them for you.. ask for Tony. He puts his videos up between 1-3am central US time, his shop will be open at 12pm central time on Wed - this Wed (13th) he will have his new shipment in.

His fish go FAST so gotta be quick. He imports from breeders who are also IBC judges in Thailand, so his stock is good stuff. Female HMs and HMPKs are $15 each. Shipping is $35 overnight, and $2 heat pack.

Can follow him on FB as well.

Breeder so I have too many to count and too many named to list here!

Elephant Ear is a Petco label, I think. Most people online seem to sell them under Big Ear or Dumbo.

Here's one:
