    Well, I'm getting rid of some of the critters, since hubby and I will both be working, plus the second kiddo on the way. But, I'll make a post of what we have anyways...

    The list:
    Queen Bee Cat (yes, she owns the place)
    Two dogs
    Three ball pythons
    One corn snake
    Two parakeets
    Rats (not sure how many, some are rescues, others are breeders for the snakes)
    Button Quail
    Coturnix eggs in the bator

    Fish include:
    Wrestling Halfbeaks
    Oscar
    Red Belly Piranha
    Tropheus Duboisi (they're leaving this weekend)
    Angelfish (selling the ones out of the 65g tank and only keeping the three blue angelfish)
    Rainbow Wolf fish
    Least Killifish
    Platinum Halfmoon Bettas
    Snails galore (not your average snails!)

    You have quite the Zoo.. almost as many "kids" as I have [​IMG]

    The B. splendens pair is gorgeous. Do you breed?

    I love the Snail assortment, too! I miss my rainbow of Bridgesii. If you sell your snails, I'd be very interested in a few of them. [​IMG]

    Lol. Sam, the tropheus are leaving this weekend, and I've been trying to sell the angels, but no definates on them. The oscar, well, we could part with him too, lol.

    The snails, I'm trying to sell most of the bridgesii as well, but they might be sold. The other snails are restricted, and cannot be sold/transported across state lines. The trapdoors can be transferred, but the asolenes, columbians (hrmm, I don't have any pics of them up), canaliculata and haustrums are all restricted. The bridgesii just had the permits pulled, so you don't need permits to ship them anymore.

    The bettas, eh, I could strangle them. I spent $500-$1000 on bettas and having them shipped here (and imported from Thailand and such) and only ever got petstore bettas to spawn. My good quality stock have always had one problem or another, no matter how much time and money I invested in them. These will be my last bettas, I just can't stand it anymore, the disappointment is entirely too much.

    Do you still have the Asolene spixi? I am from Pennsylvania, so the state-line restriction will not apply. I would love to buy some!

    The OP last posted in this thread back in February 2009 - darn near FIVE YEARS ago! I hope she sees your post and responds, but I wouldn't be getting too excited!
