Hi Simply friends,

My upcoming shipment from Chan Kok Eng will be available soon. Kok Eng is a Singapore breeder and Forrest is currently helping him to start his export business.

There will be some gigantic 8"-8.5" Snakeskins (young adults), young adult Super Eruptions, Penang Eruptions, ARGD's, ARGD's throwbacks, 3R's, young adult Albinos, young adult Albino Spotted intermediates, A grade Red Whites(New) with excellent body shape and color, plus others...

Thanks,
Kenny

Here are some preview shots of what's coming in. As always I will post actual fish pictures of each strain in my tanks when ready.

Thanks everyone! I will be posting the list in a few days I promise.:)

Ben, thank you glad you like those huge snakes. I was told by Kok Eng & Forrest that they might only be able to put 3 or max 4 of these fish in a 19x15x15 box. Imagine how enormous they must be. To give you an idea when I pack fish using the same dimension box, I usually can fit 15-18 4" fish in one box. Thanks for your pm my friend.

Darren my friend, thank you so much. All credits go to Kok Eng and Forrest for their hard work. I'm just the luck recipient!

Angel, thank you my friend!

Francis, thank you buddy!

digthemlows, you're welcome to come by around the 16th if you will be in my area. It'll be nice meeting up with you my friend. These fish will be ready some time this coming week.

Evelyn, thank you and I'm sending you some seeds so you can grow another one! LOL j/k How's the moving coming along?

April, thank you my old friend. But no gonna be 600 for sure. Probably around 1/3 of it. It's still high but shipping cost for fish of such size is a killer and 8-8.5" fish really don't come around often...I got yours covered April!:)

Jeffrey, thank you my friend for the kind comments. You of all people belongs to this "good fella" group who has very gorgeous fish yourself!:)

Rod, thank you my friend and best to your future shipment!

Al, thank you so much. I can still drop ship half of the whole shipment to you anytime in such case, my most respected friend!:)

Ashay my friend, don't you start getting any ideas! LOL

dmun24, thank you for liking them.

Ed, thank you, some time this coming week my friend.

Kevin, how are you doing bro? I've received many nice looking spotteds and reds from Forrest but this time he and Kok Eng also spoke very highly of the A grade Red Whites. I think they are 3.5-4"(pretty good size) and Forrest told me the pictures don't do them justice.

Cary, LONG TIME brother hope you've been very well! Thanks for the kind compliments bro.

Scott, thank you my friend!

Chris, thank you my friend how's your fishing trips lately. You know my freezer still have space for some chinooks/steelheads LOL.

Ally, it was very nice chatting with you and thanks for your kind blessings! I'm sure you already know and yes it's not a good time to add any new fish if you currently have tank issues. At some point due to the urge of adding more beautiful fish, many of us(myself included) have made the mistake of adding a few fish at a time without proper QT. I cannot stress this enough that it's not a good idea because this practice is a disaster waiting to happen. I hope your fish get well soon with the antibiotics administered Ally. Oh btw my sister finally got her diagnosis today...it's still a nasty one but could definitely have been worse.

johnett, thanks for your pm the other day. For common flukes using formalin, praziquantal or PP should take care of it quite easily. I personally prefer PP because of its fast acting properties.

Steve, thanks for the update of the Eruption LSS's! I've been talking to Bob to see if how everything went...glad to know they arrived safely. For those very huge snakes let me receive them first and I will let you know more about them(I still have your number Steve). I won't be receiving too many of them this time so I will try to distribute them evenly to everyone interested. Initially I wanted to keep 2 for myself but due to the responses I'm not gonna keep any for myself now. Talk with you soon Steve!

Ed, thank you buddy! And those pictures were posted specifically for you haha! How are Jorge and Maribel doing lately?

Sophie, thank you so very much my friend for all the medical links. I did try to call you to thank you for your kindness. I will need to talk to you soon my good friend Sophie...

Wahter, thanks I will set aside the Super Eruptions for you. Thank you for your pm earlier.

razputin88, nah my friend you will probably be able to buy 1 and a half with what you wanted to spend!;):D Thank you.

Brewboy74, I always prefer to let everyone look at the actual fish pictures in my tanks before taking any orders. I think it's the fairest way this way. But hey I could take yours right now LOL...

Francis, thanks for the clarification buddy!

I forgot to post these few pics earlier...these also were taken in Kok Eng's tanks. Sry for the quality of the pictures. Hey Kok Eng didn't you get a new camera the other day???:p:p:p:p

Thanks all,
Kenny

These are the young adult Albino Leopard intermediates F1. As with most Albino intermediates they are usually not fully patterned. But for breeding purposes they are quite valuable because when bred together they will produce a % of Albino spotted frys. I will also have some young adult Albino Leopard Snakes intermediates F1 available this time. Overall this shipment consists of more bigger size fish.

Hi Brian, thank you I will keep you posted in the next few days.:)

Mike, thank you my friend.:)

Al, I totally understand no problem at all my friend. I wish you and your family the very best and yes we will stay in touch! Thanks Al!:)

Okay here are some very quick shots I took(with my wife) while acclimating this shipment. Some are quite fun to look at!:)

But first let me thank Kok Eng and Forrest for once again sending me a high-quality shipment consisting of a good number of sub-adults to adults(30 boxes). Some of the size of fish I have basically never seen before!(in person) Great packing as usual.

Thanks friends,
Kenny

Here are pictures of just a few strains from this shipment(sorry about the poor quality of pictures these were very quick shots). Those pics where fish have been tanked were taken 3 hours afterwards. I will start a new sale thread for all of the Kok Eng fish with better actual fish pictures within a couple days.

Hi Danne,

Just one phone call to Kenny and the discus will be on the next flight to Sweden....before they are all gone:p..Hurry up:D


cheers
Francis:)

I was thinking more along the lines of all of us arriving at a specified date and time at Kenny's warehouse and having a royal rumble type brawl with the winner taking all discus home. ;) Because they sure get sold out fast!:D But no one touches Marie's comfy chair, right Kenny!
Good luck with this sale buddy!

Wow.. I want the giant snakeskin...

Can I do a layaway until I finish paying for it (say Christmas time?)
