check out aquabid and look for rarefin at LAX. The fish that are being sold are from Kent Webster and he has a really good strain of boesemani going at the time. Some of the stuff that comes out of the fishfarms in Florida is really a joke and hardly even looks like the original fish. This has been my battle here in the States for the last 10+ years, trying to get the wholesalers not to keep and reproduce junk. They just can't help themselves. If you do get a nice strain of "whatever" rainbowfish, don't assume that you are going to be able to pick them up easily some time in the future. We've had so many stories of people that move, get a divorce or just get lazy in keeping their fish. They lose their fish and then they come crying because they didn't take any precautions. When you get them, breed them and make sure you have them in more than one tank. Hopefully that way you'll have them around for a long time.

cheers,

Hey bowluvr thanks for the r_m_l information.

Anyone out there have M. boesmani stock worth a dang? Everything
available that I can find are farm raised fish.
