we are going to South America from March 25 to April 02 (put off Tanganyika till Fall).
Anyone wants to go let me know.
This will be with a guide to collect fish.
It will be too late for your export permits, but I could bring fish in for you, or someone else could help you.
We have a couple more slots if you would like to go.

These will be fish that few people have seen before, let alone have in a tank.
These are also cool water cichlids that can handle temps in the 40's, so they are OK for southern states outdoors, or keep them in your house without heaters.

This is your chance to see and raise fish that nobody else has.

I know its short notice, PM me if you want to go.

Still a couple days to get in on this trip to South America.
Too late to get your export permits, but if you are in California, i will bring back fish for you.

These are cichlids and plecos that can handle cold water in the 40's, and fish that are not available anywhere else in the world.
Good chance that you will see species that only a few people have ever seen.

let me know if you want to go.

that just makes me want to cry.

I am 15 if this was legit my parents would let me go is this some kind of organization cause if it is screw Honduras im packing my rod (fishing rod) camera and other **** and im down with you guys.

(dont worry I am not a total noob when it comes to walking through mud I spend my entire summer fishing digging a pond and creek walking with snakes bare food (or with my flip flops)

if its legit then im down ill go im not a cichlid expert, but being there would probably make me faint.

if its an organization email me the info ASAP before I sign up for Honduras

do you think there will be another trip to SA/CA from july-august?

if there will be then I will wait
I wanna be an ichthyologist and this would be an incredible opportunity. to meet all of you hobbyists and possibly get some connections with people. not to mention how much I love rivers and catching fish.

I doubt at that time this year.
the trips tend to be april/may and september/october.

I'd say the first thing would be to join your local fish/cichlid club.

http://www.capitalcichlids.org/

http://njas.net/

http://jerseyshoreas.org/
those are local NJ clubs.

Some very important fish people are in those clubs and i have traveled with some of them.

The American Cichlid Association is our national club, which has a convention each year, the washington club is hosting this year in July.

check them out!

It is not too late to get in on the South AMerica collecting trip leaving March 25 and returning April 02.
Ill have to bring back fish for you as it's too late for your permits.

I got my ticket today, $1300 out of LAX about 10 seats left.
price could drop, could go up.
Should be cheaper if you are closer to Miami.

The lodging is all inclusive and will be about $2000.
