I'm 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 nobody has 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 avaiable 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.

Gymnogeophagus balzanii is a very cool mouthbrooder, big nuchal hump and somewhat peaceful, very frontosa like. Gymnogeophagus tiraparae is also cool. We will be going to a different part of the country then the previously captured ones come from.

Cool Pike Cichlids like Crenicichla vittata, C. missioneira and C. minuano.

Bummed no SCUBA since thats out of season, but i will be swimming with many fishes and getting some pix as long as i can hold my breath and keep away from piranha.

I hope you are able to bring back some Gymnogeophagus. They are a really cool looking fish. Be careful down there, and the best of luck in catching what you want.
