We have not shipped ME's fish yet, but I'm going to say this was a huge success. For the most part everyone got the fish they wanted. I know some orders did not get filled completely, but the great thing about these fish is they breed. With in the year the orders can be filled by members of the forum.

You guys have been great. I just wanted to thank all of you for supporting us with this adventure.

Now the fun begins. Raising great fish to adults and start breeding them. I can't wait to see all the pictures and videos of the fish growing up. Let the fun begin here on the forum.

But does that give Big Jim and Allen enough time to forget how much work it was?

It is possible that we will do this again.

Good Luck with the other guy. I hope they dont burn the german guys out before we decide to do this again.

Hi,

it is fine to read that the shiping was successful and each of you got his fish. Most of you will have breeding females within this year. Good luck with them!

Marco and I have received some questions from other guys about a new shiping.
The result of the shiping for us will be that we will send in future less species but more fish of each. Also we will grow the fish to a size of 1 - 1/2 inch before we send them.
We plan to be able to offer about 20 species in August - September (or later-) this year.
But until now we have not decided to whom we will send. Time will show it.

Axel

this time around it was 8$ per fish. a rough estimate.

but the fish ranged from .5" to 3-4". so not very even across the board.

Dre was close with the cost of the fish.

The best thing about it is we now have over 30 species of Victorians here in the states. Some of which never been here before.
