why so long to get a Demasoni?

Postby jgrillout » Sun Mar 11, 2018 11:51 am

The aquatic store I use has a good reputation but I don't understand why their supplier has taken them almost a month for them to get me a Demasoni. Are they usually this hard to get?

Demasoni are somewhat common in the mass market. All depends on how the system that store uses. Waiting almost a month for something doesn't sound that unusual. The smaller or independent store market has changed significantly over the last 20 years.

They may deal with one supplier exclusively and that supplier may not have any. If the supplier is a breeder they would have to wait until their Demasoni get busy; if they are an importer they may be having issues with their supplier. When I bought my Demasoni online last summer I had to shop around to get the fish I wanted.
