I realized I left Triggers off the list of what I'd trade for.

I have a Linespot Trigger so I'd be interested in trading for another one to pair it off.

I'd also be interested in Blue Throat, Pinktail, Crosshatch, Male and female.

Thanks

Not sure yet, sorry. I'll try to match/beat any of the QT vendor prices. I paid a hefty price for these.

I don't expect to get back what I paid, and I already lost an incredible amount on the Kingi, if any of you have an idea what a fully quarantined Kingi costs, it was a lot... :(
Why all the zebrasomas in the same tank?

Well, I don't want to blame anyone but myself, but I was heavily influenced to believe that as long as I add them all at the same time they'd all be fine.

Lesson learned, a very expensive one.

I've reassessed the direction my tank is going and I'll be slowing it down, but the aggressive Tangs, except maybe my one Koi Scopas, I probably will move for more peaceful ones.

How much for the yellow and purple?

TSM has the fully QT'd Yellows at $399. I'll beat that but not by much. That is what I paid for the one that is for sale.

My other yellow I purchased from a member on here and quarantined myself, but right now it's NFS.

The Purple is also Fully QT'd and the going rate for one QT'd is $249. The Purple was apart of a bulk buy so I don't know the exact price I paid for it, but I would assume I was charged around that for it. Same deal as the yellow, I'll beat TSM prices but not by much.

Thanks

What did you decide about shipping?

I probably won't be able to sell all of these off in a reasonable amount of time if I don't ship, I just have never done it. I have all the items for it other than oxygen.

If I'm going to ship I'm going to go from airport to airport, so you'd have to pickup.

Shipping reliability is so bad right now. I received fish 2 days later on overnight deliveries. Fortunately, if I can, I time it to a day I'm flying and just have them shipped to my hub.

If u do decide to ship I'm sure lfs could help bagging and with the oxygen if u call ahead and ask... atleast my lfs has been able to assist me over the years even helping me package with free heat packs(1 on lid covered in newspaper 1 on bottom covered in newspaper) and styro and throwing in a small sample size packet of quick stop... I was also advised by my lfs lady to starve fish for a out 3 to 4 days aswell before shipping and wrapping a black bag like garbage bag or arab store shopping bag to block light helps with shipping stress aswell as using a larger sized bag than necessary and turning on side and adding a appropriate size pvc elbow to reduce shipping stress giving a place to hide, when shipping shrimp you can cut a piece of potato or onion net or use mesh or old net or even stretched out gauze... I hope this tip helps

pics of the koi?
Challenging to get pictures in the tub.

I posted the fish I was looking to get rid of on a bulletin boards of the local pet stores and that has been going well. I did actually sell one of my Kois. I'm not opposed to selling my last one available, although I was debating on keeping it.

However, I'd probably consider because of how aggressive these Scopas have been at their size, it will probably live in the tub for a long time while I make additions to the 400g. It definitely needs to be one of the last fish added in the tank. It's huge and will likely dominate.

I'll see if I can find some images of it before I bought it.

Ended up having to use the 40g for a quarantine since it was already setup. At the moment the Koi is still in the 300g.

This is him with the blue/green on his dorsal fin.

Finally caught the grouper. For slight reference my hands are bigger than Salgado.

She's no longer quarantined as I had to remove her from the pond. She kept escaping through the dividers and terrorizing the other fish.

Maybe I'm going crazy, but I'll take $60 for the Grouper, so now it's a steal.

Thanks
