    Here is a short vid of my Polleni. It's one of the best looking fishes I have. Don't let the vid fool ya. She's pretty to herself most of the time. Pretty elegant huh? LOL

    I've got 6 adults (2M, 4F) plus about 300 3 week old fry. The pics and the video are of the pair that spawned. I had already removed the fry, but they were behaving like they were getting ready to spawn again.

    Thanks T-roy. I'd like to send fish to the States. Unfortunately, I'm in Canada, and the expense and paperwork just doesn't make it feasible. US Fish and Wildlife will charge me over $100 just to bring them across the border and to ship them out of Canada, I need export permits that are pricey to obtain. Sorry.
    Jim
