Hi

I'm looking for the rasbora Trigonostigma espei. I have only been able to acquire three so far. Two were the only survivors of a shipment at a LFS (they were sent some sick ones) and one was a contaminant among some hengeli. I like espei the most!

This is it here:
http://www.fishbase.org/Summary/SpeciesSummary.cfm?id=27073

Since getting the ones I have now, I've discovered that they're pretty hard to obtain. Does anyone here know where I can get more for a reasonable price? I've never gotten fish by mail before, but I'm just about to give in and do it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It looks like harlequin rasbora. Great schoolers. My LFS has some.

Andrew, when did you move to brooklyn? Thought you were around the astoria area?

Thanks, but it looks to me like the fish on Aquabid are really hengeli and not what I'm looking for. These are also not harlequins either (heteromorpha).

hey cavan. Were you wanting to do a mailorder? Fish Gallery in Dallas, TX has about 8 of em the last I checked. Maybe nik can chime in here. We could buy em all up and ship em to you and yes they are espei.

Other than that I have espei's at home in Austin, but my father loves em too much to give em up. :0)

David,

Would you look into that? I'm tired of looking into a mostly empty tank and am finally at the point where I'll do it! Please PM me with details when they become available.
