Good news/bad news re Botia sidthimunki

We had 200 large ones pass through work today. They ranged from 3 to 3.5"(9cm)and were in perfect condition. Here's a list of the cities they were shipped to: Buffalo,Chicago,Tampa,Oakland and Los Angeles. I'm guessing the retail price will be somewhere around $25 to $30. For those of you that live in one of these areas and can afford this high price, let your local retailer know the fish are available but they won't be available for long. I mailed some pics to Jeff so soon you will be able to see how much the pattern changes as the fish grows. Most pictures show juvenile fish.

Now for the bad news. The reason that these were available is that the breeder that owened them was in need of cash because his fish didn't produce last year so he sold his future broodstock. This means that one less farm will be breeding them in the future. Get 'em while you can!
