    So far what is required does not seem real bad . I read the Badman link from Francis and it was very useful ..
    Even if the listed prices were double it is not as much as I expected ..Now that does not mean a thing on how much shipping or the fish would cost .
    And then there is the ultimate cost ..Do they arrive safely and do you get good fish since they know you are small time ..
    My interest is in Piwowarski discus since no one seems to have them ...Maybe there is a real reason why they don't ?
    I heard a few years back that his hatchery was having problems with the fish. A breeder show me an video and mention
    that his fish didn't look well.

    Most are way better than you would get if you were to import yourself. Which strain are you most interested in?

    I am not even sure Liz . The San Merahs look hot ,hot hot but many of those guys looked pretty good to me .
    That video was actually sent to me by one of my buddies [on this forum] who already knows the length I will go to, to get better fish then most can find ..
    I really don't want adults or pairs I would want a small herd of maybe a couple colors but not real sure ..First I need to start communication with Alec .
    My buddy in Hawaii says to find a trans shipper who deals with Germany ..I have not had any luck yet with that so may ask one transhipper in Texas who sent me the alien bettas if he could do me a favor ?
    Personally I am not thrilled with ordering fish ,as I really like to see them in person but the chances of me ever going to Germany [in this life] are somewhere around zero so if I can arrange something I might just make the leap ..
    You did not see anything concerning/noteworthy in them ?

    Tom there was a lot of really nice discus amongst them, overall very good quality. There was 1 tank of fish that had a reasonably high number of fish with the split dorsal rays that were discussed in this forum recently, with the general consensus being that it's a genetic defect. The San Merahs did look great, particularly the first tank full of Jumbo's, then there was San Merahs cross with a name I cannot remember right now which looked excellent. I truly hope you can acquire the quality you're chasing...that would mean great fry availability from you sometime down the road a bit!

    I guess blue snakeskin for first and Santarem for the bottom one .
    I am not real good at knowing variations but the second one looks very much like 2 Santarem . Very nice halo coloring on the fins ..
