Not sure yet, there are a small handful that I am suspicious are not male, but want to give them a bit more time to see. They are colorless, but also small. The majority are male. I do have both genders of the dario jaintia hills (crimson bangladesh).

Are the fire yellows similar to the German fire yellows or is the naming a coincidence? There are some good photos of the German fire yellow line of neo var yellow out there on the web (imke has some great ones, for example) and if the fire yellows you got in are anything like those I expect them to be popular.

I cannot get hastatus, every time i order them, they come in as pygmaeus. I have tried scads of times and just give up.

I can probably get sparkling gourami, but usually in groups of 600 (which is WAY too many) so I will have to see.

Asfor stocking on the dario dario, i think it would really dependon your decor.
+1 vote for the kubotai!

Any chance you would be able to post up a picture of the possible dario dario females? Just started looking into these fish, they sound so cool! I was hoping for 2 males and 4-5 females. Which way are you leaning with the colorless dario darios? Would it be a long time before you were for sure?

No worries. What type of ratio would you suggest? You're probably the only vendor I'd actually trust to know the difference between the males and females, so I'd probably just wait until you had more in stock, if you couldn't sell that ratio.

If you can get 1:1, you are doing good!

I spent abotu an HOUR starign at them (they didn't appreciate my big black lens). I have ONE I KNOW is a female (has to be the booty), and about 3 that I am suspicous might be. If not, they are some pretty boring males.
