I think the last time I sent anything US postal service flat rate priority box it was about $15.00 with packing materials and such. Whats a fair price for the fish? With shipping your cost gets up there to like $7 a fish. Let me know. I could get them to you if interested.
Part of the problem with all swordtails right now is that almost every farmer in Florida was wiped out in December when we had record cold. There are not many swords,platys or mollies available from the US market right now and to import from asia drives the pruice of the fish up high.
Thank-you for your offer and I may very well contact you. I need to wait now until I get my 60g stable/under control. It's fairly new (as are the fish) and two Mollies came down with what at first I thought was ick, but now I think some fungus (they were constantly pestered by the male and I'm thinking his 'attentions' interfered with their slime coat) so they're out in another tank now and I'm in wait 'n see for the 60g.
