According to the chart a pair of channoides would be 30$, and a pair of albis would be 32$, so they're fairly similar. Both species have pretty much the same care requirements.

When I brought three fish home from So Cal I had them in their cups in a cooler.

Okay how should I package them Matt? Like how you did. That's the way I will since it worked for you. I will get the albis and IBC says they are tolerable of water while channoides aren't as much. Or It will be the imbellis. Which ever like more

Get both? Lol. It was simple, really. I kept them in their cup, put them in a small cooler, stuffed it with towels to keep them stable, then drove across the border.

Store was amazing but I got none. Imbellis were really youn and I couldn't find the others. You aren't allowed to take pictures but it was Feds best LFS I've ever gone to.

Aww that's a shame. At least it was a nice store.

Edit: I got my shelves yesterday. I will be setting them up shortly. I got them for 40$, which, me and my Grandpa figured out, is cheaper then building them ourselves.

40 bucks is a good deal. Think of the extra space you will have to work with. When your set up you should post some pics.

I'll post pics.

Oh yea... I'll have room for a few more tanks. I'm thinking I'll limit my self to the sorority and six boys, and of course spawns and the fry. That way I can easily manage things and focus on breeding.

In the distant future I would love a small shrimp tank, and a couple species of wild bettas (I'm thinking channoides/albimarginata and a splendens species, which an lfs carries sometimes).

Nice Matt. My parent won't let me get anymore tanks due to room and so no racks for me. But I will be breeding guppies for show now.
