i also think they should at least be at the 1 inch mark before they are sold...more chance of survival when sold...and less comeback.... Twisted Evil

I think their feedback is good because initially after collecting the young fry, all seems well, and appears to be a bargain. However, I bet if you asked the buyers again a week or so later, that they would have lost at least 75% of the fish.

As for posting eggs. I wouldn't trust it, after all, the eggs need fanning and that can't be done whilst in postage. Just my thoughts of course.

Hi Angi & Curby
I realy think a lot of it is the is due to colection of the fish,as they should not feed for a day which is ignored and the way they catch them,then drop them in a plastic bag also putting to many in the bag, can you imagen beeing droped out of an airoplaine into the sea and then trying to swimm with out any trurma,no wonder a lot end up belly up after re homeing,even if you get the water perameters the same as what they came in and you put them in the new home this does happen.

This is not a good idea. I wouldn't touch it from either side.

Eggs and even small fry are looked after closely by the father. You can't assume to know all his responsibilities much less take over for him 24/7.
