Who sells the best snow white goldens?

Anyone have a recommendation about who sells the best snow white goldens? I'm really fascinated by them. I know- weird right?

I have talk to some sellers and it seems no one in the states has high quality ones. I got some good ones from nick last time I ordered from him they grew up to look great

Bryce,

I'm fresh out sir. I have some offspring but those were mixed with Blue Bolt so I'm keeping those for breeding purposes . If you can't find any within a month, shoot me a PM then.

Nick

Will do. I'm really thinking of just getting avg snows and breed them out to the best myself. What's another breeding project?

The other thing you may want to think of is you may need more mature stock than juvies. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but goldens all look the same until they begin to age. I know when I got my goldens they were snow white because they were juvies. As they aged they became 'golden'. So I would guess if want to be absolutely SURE they are snow whites you'd have to wait until they are subadults at least to know for sure.

I have had a CBS SSS breeding project going for awhile now and have been getting tons of goldens out of it lately and the funny thing is the SSS came from my large tank of CBS and I have never had a golden come out of the large tank but once I started pulling the SSS out of the large tank and moved them to a smaller breeding tank I started getting goldens not sure why lol.

buy a wack and breed the best. This is one of my nicest ones. I'm sure they can get a lot better if you buy high grades but this was just from regular patchy ones.

Very nice. Yepper, I think that's what I'll have to do. Buy a bunch and breed the best, and sell off the rest to make my money that I spend on the others back.

If only I were better at telling genders in crystals!

I tried goldens and snow white before. They died before they can reproduce

'Unfortunately'?? Well let me take those poor unfortunate tibees off your hands

Beautiful shrimp (but I'm not joking about those tibees...)
