    I have made a test order from Below Water (Oliver Lucanus) in Canada to get some of the species he has that we have an impossible time getting here in the USA. I will not know the pricing until I see the total overhead, but they will be pricier than fish imported directly into the the USA... but that does not happen. I have tried, and after the last attempt have decided to try this. What does the additional cost of fish from Oliver get us?
    • Quarantined fish that are conditioned and acclimated to harder water
    • Correct ID and accurate collection localities
    • Access to the fish without having to purchase far more than the USA market can absorb
    • Lower losses due to poor shipping and shipping stress

    Great, Ted, hope it works out. If folks want to see what some of these species look like they can view Oliver's Facebook page. He has many species nicely photographed and in healthy condition and full color.
