FS: Oryzias woworae ($2/fish or trade)

Most of the Sac plant folks know about this already, but I've got some nice young adult Oryzias woworae that I bred this summer. For locals, it's $2 per fish, pickup in Davis or Sac.

These guys are about three-quarters of an inch long, and the males have a nice blue sheen. I'm seeing males chasing females and displaying, so I suspect they're almost ready to breed. They're peaceful, even with my adult fire shrimps.

Here's a pic of the ricefish, from the paper that described them last year. They're originally from Muna Island, near Sulawesi. My guys are identical.

I'D like some stocking room - these guys are taking up all of my tank space!

For those folks without spare cash at the moment, I'm happy to trade for shrimps (anything that isn't cherry or fire) and rainbowfish.

I'm also looking for Crypt balansae, java moss, and vals. Maybe some manzy.

I've got yellows, snowballs, CRS/CBS, and some java moss that I could trade :P

The only hangup is that I live in the Modesto area.... maybe we could arrange a meetup partway or something!
