    I think Chris at Amazon Tropicals (one of the sellers in our sponsors section) has some.

    I am still looking to buy the Ivanacara adoketa

    I would like to get a few young, but open to looking at any available.
    Must be able to ship them safely.

    Thanks.

    Unfortunately I don't know of anyone in the states that has any at this time. The only two that I know of that have been successful in breeding them are Dave and Eric Bodrock. I'm pretty sure Eric doesn't have any either. I would check with Eric and see if he knows where you might be able to source some. I know he makes trips over to Germany and has quite a few friends there that might be able to track some down for you.

    These days I don't find people keeping them in US.Don't know why.Is it because they are not interested in Adoketas ?You can go for asian wholesalers.I know they have adoketa but are very expensive.

    We don't have them from lack of trying. We have two offspring...two. That is after a year of keeping the parents. Of course then we lost the female and have since repaired the male with another...keeping our fingers crossed. They are difficult to put in mildly. I'm hoping to raise up the two I have to form another pair with one of the spare females I have...praying for boys from this one. I know of another that spanwed them in the US for I think one spawn...maybe two and then no more luck. I don't know how often Dave has been successful Tough darn fish. Rull r/o nothing but live food....picky, picky, picky. I keep my eyes open for more but haven't even seen them coming into the county. Was hoping someone coming back from germany to pack a few in their suitcare along with some other few neat things. Person that figures these out hands down and retire.

    They are around. Two sellers had them at the ACA in Cincinatti last July. It will take a bit for them to grow up and be spawned.

    Some will turn up sooner or later.
