Where to buy multis
« on: June 05, 2017, 07:01:46 PM »
I've searched the forums and can't find anywhere to buy multis.  I live in GA and have a 30 gallon tank set up for them.  I just need maybe 6 to start with.  Please help

Try your local clubs. Many times members there have fish they sell.

Don't know how far you are from Atlanta, but here's one there: http://www.atlantaaquarium.com/content.php

How about neighboring states?

I have never bought fish online, but I did ship some once and it worked out well. Proper packaging is important.

Hi. Even if you don't have a club based in your town, there are probably at least one or two based somewhere in Georgia. It's worth reaching out to them. The club in my area has members two and three hours (and more) away from the site of the monthly meeting. I imagine almost all clubs have a website these days. You should be able to find contact info on their website. As far as online retailers, it seems pretty hit and miss whether you'll find them in stock. Another popular option is Aquabid. Finally, whatever your feelings about the facebook platform (some people love it, some hate it) I have found that it's chock full of hobbyist pages and IME a pretty good way to locate local deals. I do wish you much good luck. It may take a bit of patience and persistence, but they are definitely out there. :)

Hi,

I'm in Atlanta and I bought 5 of them on Breedcichlids.com. However, if your looking to get some I have 3 males I need to give away and if your interested let me know (for free I need to rehome them). However, I don't have a breeding pair to give away since the one I have just had frys.

i would try aquabid , or facebook. they are a common species kept by many aquarist. though they are not common to all fish stores.
If you still have no luck i carry them occasionally on my website. though im not here to promote myself. so i wont be listing it. on aquabid the wetspot is a very reliable source , if you buy from breeders just be sure to look at their seller history, most people have good ones but its worth checking before you bid.
