Shipping Update

More snow!!!

Several more inches of snow are predicted to fall later today and into tomorrow (Thursday) so I’m pushing back shipping yet again.  Sorry!

I think it might be time to start house shopping somewhere a little warmer…

Shipping Postponed

I hate to say it but we are in a full blow winter storm here in Wisconsin.  Yes, in the middle of April.  Several inches of freezing rain fell Friday into Saturday and then it started snowing.  It’s STILL snowing!

Because of the weather I feel it’s in your best interest to wait on sending any fish or plants out right now.  I’m sorry for the delay but I want you to get healthy and LIVE packages.  If you just can’t wait I would be happy to refund you in full.

So why order from

15+ years of shipping fish
35+ years in the hobby
25+ years in the industry
Proper ID’s are a passion
No Turn and Burn, I strive to send out healthy properly quarantined fish
Live Arrival Guarantee with a refund or replacement for DOAs
I’m a fellow hobbiest treating you like I want to be treated.
I got into this because I was frustrated by the limited selection, poor quality, and improper ID and sexing of fish.
Styrofoam shipping boxes WITH heat packs (when needed).

Apistogramma borellii

Hands down my all time favorite Apistogramma! It was one of the first species that I had spawning success with back in the early 1990’s when you could find wild caught borellii in almost any good independent store (remember those?). What’s not to like? Big fins, lots of color and color variation (a single population can have multiple color patterns in males from all blue, blue and yellow, near yellow, and any of those can have a red face too), and they don’t get huge. Ive kept a trio in a 10 gallon tank and had both females tending to (and stealing each others) fry with the male over seeing the whole ordeal!
Unfortunately as Brazil greatly reduced allowed collecting and exports in the late 1990’s A. borellii along with many other aquarium staples started to disappear in the trade. Czech breeders have offered several selectively bred forms of borellii but the line breeding to isolate specific color traits have left the fish unusually weak, especially males, A very beautifully high yellow form of A. borellii shows up now and again from Uruguay, specifically found at Bella Union, but they are far and few between. (This population does very well in warm if nor down right hot conditions by the way. Their small pockets of water heat up during the day unlike the cool flowing water we often think of for the region.)
But once again Apistogramma borellii are coming out of Brazil! The last few imports I was able to get have come from the Pantanal Region (think giant seasonal river/swamp) between Brazil and Bolivia. THIS is the fish I remember! Small, attractive, and variable in color. Not to mention hardy and pretty easy to breed.
I have a limited number of small unsexed fish available yet. Get your’s before it’s to late, again!
