Haha, the articles helped a lot, thanks again! I've never tried to ship fish but there's a first time for everything. I have shipped plenty of reptiles and amphibians in the past though so it probably wouldn't be too bad.

Here are a couple of pics that I took. I apologize for taking so long, there is a lot going on at my house.

wow, so you are going to try to raise the fry?

i give you much respect as this fish is being overharvested from the wild.

Yeah, I have them in their own tank and am hatching brine shrimp daily. Hopefully I can get them on frozen food in a month or so. The male still has some babies in his mouth and when he spits them out i will put them in with these guys. I will wait a couple of weeks before I introduce him back to the female and let him eat because I hear that she will fill his mouth again as soon as they are back together. I feel like I could be overrun with these if I have success with raising them, lol.

That's so awesome... the shipping not the raising... JK JK, congrats and i'm really glad they helped you. I can't wait to see some more developement. If they are like clowns, it won't be too much longer before you can feed them frozen foods. Much luck and i can't wait to see them free flowing from you and maybe you can repopulate the oceans...

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea...

I was about to say, getting overrun shouldn't be a problem. You shouldn't have a problem finding other reefers who want them or a store that would be happy to have them. This is something I'd like to get involved in on down the line.
