So, who's keeping Lamprologus boulengeri?

This is a very nice looking Shellie but nearly imposible to get a hold of!

I guess Canadians are so priveleged! LOL

Well, at least I know who to bug for shipping if I can't get any locally.

Lloyd _ I know you didn't mean 100 of them right?!

I think you mean growing out in a 100 gallon - yes?

I have about a dozen adults. Real pretty fish the males get big for a shellie. They have pretty big spawns ,but I haven't really seen mine be to aggressive.

Would you consider shipping? If so give me a PM with a price per fish and how many you would like to sell.

Shipping from Canada to the United States is problematic. You need a license to import the fish, and you need to have them inspected by customs. Both cost money. (Certainly more than the fish themselves are worth)

Thanks for the info. It's been a few years since I use to come your way on fishing trips and get all that good Canadian Beer.

Was there any success in locating some of these fishes in the states?
I’ve called 3 places that showed them on list on the net but told me they were out. It seems there is a lot of variation in color from pictures I’ve seen and I’m curious if some are really Boulengeri? The pictures in the profile section here at the Forum really look awesome does anyone else’s look this good? It seems that most of the others I see don't have the yellow in them?
