Normally $6.00 each as adults, get 6 fry for just 25.00. To get

size these are best
bought as fry. Grown out here in tanks with fairly high stocking

These have been my most popular fish, and are the bright red barbs
referred to on the customer
comments page. They have been selectively bred for 4 years

Not yet formally identified, the Tiger Limia is from Lake
Miragoane in Haiti, and closely related
to the Limia nigrofasciata. Only kept in
the hobby since 2000, it is fairly hardy and prolific when
provided with consistent water conditions,
adequate aeration, and regular (30-50% monthly) water changes. Best bought in groups of 5
fry for $25, the males take until near adulthood before
they fully sex out.
This 3-4 inch fish is selectively bred to emphasize the striking
yellow background with blue and
black markings, demonstrating its common
name as a "Trout Goodeid". Easy to breed, the

immediately and growing quickly. To protect all

only $30. Extras are sent to cover any shipping
losses when available. This fish makes for a very
striking display in a 30, 40 or 50 gallon
