Re: Anyone Know a good fish?
Shouldn't be a problem with the eggs of most of our plant-spawning
killifish, which can be handled the same way as eggs from non-native
plant spawning killifish.
ALSO: H. formosa is a good starter fish or candidate for
freebies/introductory packets. Due to small size, the postage is
minimal, as they don't need a lot of water to ship in. I sent abot 50
H. formosa, packed three trios to a bag, with all bags inside a
styrofoam box which was inside a cardboard box and postage was about $7.
I would think that we could ship a trio of H. formosa for less than $2.
Suggestion: advertise a "Try a Native" special, which would include a
trio of H. formosa for $5, plus $2 s/h, which includes a NFC Beginner's
Guide to Keeping Natives and 10% off coupon for their next purchase of
fish from the NFC.
