I have 6 Kipili F1 Fronts that I am looking to part ways with and 'upgrade' to F1 Moba's. 2 obsticles I'm having - 1. Determining value for the 6 kipilis (sorta hard to find/come by - price wise) and 2. finding F1 Mobas that aren't overly priced.

Any ideas or suggestions?

These guys are at least double the size in the pictures. These were from last October I believe.

Does anyone know if the Kipli varient grows trailers?

You have a mix in there. Last picture is a burundi. Second to the last picture, fish at the background could be a burundi but need to see the face bar. Though, the rest are tanz. type.

Value of fish depends on the buyer.
I agree, the fish are only worth what a person is willing to pay, and how long are you willing to hold on to them. Just my 2cents.

Sorry guys - I took better pictures this am. Here are the Kipili. I've heard that Mobas are going for $30/inch. I didn't know how to accordingly price the Kipilis....if they would be $10/inch or what. I know they're a little harder to come by. Most of mine are at least 5-6".





Thanks,
Jason

A dealer would sell them WC at 5-6 inches in the 70-100 range.
From a private seller, i'd expect to pay 60 each for WC that size, about 40-50 each max for F1's that size.

Thats in california, your area may be different to due demand, or lack of it.

I'm selling my WC for about $50 a piece, but they are Blue Bismark, also not found often. Mine are a little bigger, 7", and proven breeders, but I think you could get $40 a piece for yours. They look really nice. Helps sell them if they are breeders and if you have a good male/female ratio.

Do you have any ads you can look at for fronts of that size in your area ? For example if they are selling (and people are buying ) adult burundi for x amount of dollars each or x amount for a group then you can adjust your price accordingly for the rarer type.

I would guess F1 Moba fry to cost between $30 to $40 each.
