Keeping the hobby fresh with new color\fin morphs is a great thing to keep doing for the fresh water community,it gives a sense of accomplishment as well and for good reason.

Whats the cost to ship some of these amazing live bearers towards Oregon?

It depends on how many. 3-4 would typically be $5-$10 for shipping. Larger packages can be anywhere from $10-$20 though. Depends on the weight, but my smaller packages usually are about eight dollars to places like NY from Colorado, that's what I've had thus far, haven't shipped to Oregon before but I imagine it's about the same.

I don't have any black gold dusts or yellow-tail marbles right now though. I might, I have a bunch of youngsters in right now who haven't gotten in colors yet but look like they may become yellow-tails. I just sold my last adult/sub-adult black golds and yellowtails. Unfortunately I had tried a new packaging thing someone insisted on and they all died, I had some bad feelings about it and shoulda known better! I haven't had any other shipments that died aside from someone claiming it with one package that arrived late. I have pretty good luck with it, it was a bummer to lose those though. =( The rest I've gotten good messages on including a pair of oranda goldfish I sent to Illinois.

I'm about to get in some more of those creamsicle mixes and some silver lyretails I'm trying to get the yellow-tail gene in on, but no guarantees of course. lol I have been trying to mix ones I've raised that seem healthy and long-lived and so far have had some good luck with it. I have some lovely fourth generation gold dusts.

I do have some lovely swordtails for sale right now though. My ebay is Sylversaquatics. I am...unsure about selling and setting up sales in places that don't just do it for you, I have no idea how to do it. LOL Right now I only have a female gold gourami and my swordtails, waiting on the babies to mature a little more for the mollies because there are a couple I am debating on keeping and breeding. Some of my babies came out with very interesting markings this time that I think are yellow-tail marbles mixed with gold dusts. My gold dusts are typically either calico-like or just orange with a few black streaks or spots. They're pretty neat usually, though some come out a bit odd. lol

This is the link to my swordtails. I need to update the photos as they're all much bigger now, video is about valid though! Still considered fry. I sent 35 of these to Peurto Rico a couple weeks back and they all arrived alive and healthy according to my buyer. :3 They're nice and tough little fish, and are rather pretty. Not mixed, but are home bred and raised. The calicos are especially(except those may be mixed with my brick orange male, they're extremely, EXTREMELY bright red with black spots on the tails and I did not have a male calico...so either my bright orange, or my solar flare males bred with her, they came out more red than mom and she's pretty bright herself).

This is their mother. The white male swordtail hasn't been in there long enough to breed, about two days at this point and you can see mom when she was pregnant...and though still young herself, is much bigger than the boys. LOL She was born New Years Eve year before last, she's just over a year and a half old. I am wanting to breed her with the white one though...I'm curious how they will come out.


The possible fathers of the babies are either this guy, Solar Flare Twinbar:


Or this guy, who I think is called a brick orange, but I'm not sure. Sorry, terrible photo of him! You can see his color though. That was "Big Red" he passed away about a month ago or so. He was an oooooolllld man. =) I'm almost positive this is the father of her babies though, he's the oldest male unlike the young solar flare, and he's been with her since she was big enough. This was her first brood though.

It is, it's up for bid for almost four more days. Someone has bid on it already, you'll have to fight them for it. Though if I have enough left I can put up another later on. I was curious what they'd go for so it's a bid. lol

Some of those swordtails are up for bid now, if anyone is interested. Two females and a male. Male is a twinbar solar flare, females may or may not be, one looks like she's getting in the bars but eh, they're really pretty anyways. They're old enough to breed, but are only a few months along so probably wont. lol They have some growing to do, but are far from considered fry. Sub-adult, juvenile maybe. =)
Bid starts at $8, ends in one week. I did a week long one because I don't want people witing too long after buying and I only ship Monday through Wednesday.

My silver butterfly popped this morning and looks like she's got a second brood growing. I call her a silver butterfly because she's silver and is the exact shape of a creamsicle or yellow butterfly but is pure silver. She doesn't look like the silver lyretails or sailfins. =) She's pretty cool. Unfortunately I only got one baby. I had moved her to the large planted net this morning, but she jumped out! Meh. I hope to get some from her, there was one in the net at least. lol I think the father is my silver sailfin/creamsicle mix. At least I am hoping. Otherwise the only males are gold dusts, but there was a black gold dust before.
