Where to get Etroplus maculatus

Post by michi tobler » Wed Sep 06, 2006 9:02 am

Hi all,

a friend of mine is desparately looking for E. maculatus for a University study. He is looking for wild caught fish. Anyone know a source for such jewels?

Cheers, M

A source in Europe or in India?

There are a couple of importers in the UK who regularly import from India. They would be closest to you, I think. If you have import permits, I can put you in touch with an exporter in India.

Hi Michi,

I use to work with this one http://www.aquaticnurseries.com/ , I know they work with somebody in the US, maybe you can contact us to ask where they ship, maybe it's close to you. If no anserw , I'll ask my self ;)
they ship marine and freshwater fish, I got my Etroplus suratensis there.


regards

Florent

Hi Florent!
How big is the tank and what is the density of water for suratensis?

Hi,

the fish are small and they are in a shop, the tank is only 150 liters. They are with an Acanthurus leucosternon and a Thalassoma lunare ... in a marine tank ;)
