he says he has the papres for them as wild caught , but if they are only from Brazil then they'd be illegal, so....??? but he insists they arent, and they come from Peru.. is that possible???

Anyone else looking for these little guys near Absolutely Fish (Clifton NJ) they have 2 more that they can order from California. Let the guy who orders the freshwaterfish (Mike D) i think, know you'd like them, he might ask for a deposit.

I was talking to my guy at the LFS and he says that they are smuggled out of Brazil to other countries (Peru, for example) and then sold from that country, instead of Brazil, where it is illegal. So it sounds to me that unless you've got a tank bred fish it's illegal.

That seems likely. Since this fish is endemic to the Xingu River in Brazil, it is not going to be "caught" in Peru which is some 1400 miles due west from the area of the Rio Xingu. Course, someone in SA may be breeding the fish and selling those, I've no idea.

Rosehower- I forgot to tell you about this in my PM to you last night:

http://www.petzonesd.com/advanced_se...&Submit=Search

My LFS guy, Ron, told me about it yesterday. If Ron can't ship you one of his maybe Petzone can ship one of theirs?? Petzone's are a tad cheaper than Ron's specimens. I don't know anything about Petzone's quality and reputation, can only vouch for Ron's.
