Scarlet badis "Dario Dario" Where to purchase them??


Hey guy's, I am interested in picking up a few Scarlet badis "Dario Dario" for my upcoming tank but am having a REALLY tough time finding them ANYWHERE online for sale...I suppose I could try one of the local shops and see if they can special order some in but I am unsure since I have NEVER seen them locally for sale

Any help would be really great as I think this is just the neatest little species of fish and considering that they LOVE heavily planted tanks I think they would do just great in my upcoming tank build "maybe even breed"

There's a breeding pair on Aquabid right now (price, esp with shipping, seems outrageous though):

Can't you get a LFS to order them for you?

That honestly does'nt seem like a terrible price to me, 55 dollars shipped for a mated pair...

Only thing though is I wonder about the females health as far as being shippied while she is so egg laden you know?

I guess I can try a LFS though since I would like around 6-8 all together since they only grow to 1/2-3/4 of an inch long

Shipping is expensive when buying online, but Liveaquaria.com has them

http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/p...23&pcatid=2823

$48.97 shipped for two +7 for each additional one...

Edit: As it turns out, there is a $30 minimum purchase... It would work if you bought 5 or more.

I got mine from a LFS, that was able to order them. They actually get to be on the light side of 1", And only eat frozen or live foods. Great little fish, way to much personality for a fish their size lol.

That's a good price for them actually, I checked how much for 6 and itll be about 73 dollars for 6 shipped, Hopefully with ordering 6 I can get a mix of males and females

At least if I can start breeding them I can offer them to other people who may want them
