Thanks to all who participated in the Wetspot group buy. There were some very interesting fish purchased, everything from vampire plecos (L240 a beautiful fish) to dwarf amber barbs (these top out at .75 in). Twenty one species were ordered, most are not available locally. We are looking forward to these being bred and available at our future auctions.

We encourage our members to support our local Fish Stores. But, they can keep only so many species. Wetspot offers a large selection of species many hard to find. If we have enough interest we will have a group Wetspot order with free shipping. To see their current stock go to https://www.wetspottropicalfish.com/current-stock. To participate you must be be a JRAS member. If there is adequate interest we will contact you with information on how to order through JRAS and the delivery of the fish. If you are interested respond to this post. Responses will be tabulated on March 31st.

These fish and plants I have bred and tank raised. Message me to order so I can be sure to bag the right number of fish for you. Message me with any questions. Cash please. Long Finned White Clouds (Tanichthys albonubes) All White Clouds make a great dither fish but once the fins develop on this variety they become a real show stopper. These fish are just starting to exhibit the long fin trait. ( A picture of the brood stock (parents) is included to show what you can expect in the future.) A great addition to your tank. Recommend a school of at least 6. $5.50 each, 6 for $25 (Pre-order as there will be just a couple of bags of 6 at the event). The picture directly below is the brood stock (parents) Young Adult Long Finned White Clouds that are being sold Bronze Corys (Coryadorus Aeneas) These are great for your clean up crew. When kept in a group of 6 or more, it is wonderful to watch them school. Great personalities. $4 each, 6 for $20 (If you want other than 6, pre-order) .Peacock Gudgeons (Tateurndina ocellicauda) These are a graceful and beautiful addition to a tank stocked with nano fish. Great colors and peaceful. Add a slash of color and elegance to your tanks. $6 each. 4 for $20. (At the event I will only have bags of 2, $12. If you want an odd number pre-order.) Black Bar Endlers (Poecilia wingei) These are a gregarious little addition and a great dither fish. Males $3 each, Females $2 each. 6 for $10 (mixed sexes) Will have bags of 6 at the event pre-order if you would like a different number. Butterfly Goodeid (Ameca splendens) These fish are beautiful but severely threatened in the wild. They are easy to keep and do nt need a heated tank. I keep these with barbs with no issues. Reports are they hold there own in a cichlid tank. Unlike other live bearers, eggs are internally fertilized, embryos are feed by a primitive type of umbilical cord. I have not seen young predated. The gestation period is longer than more common live bearers. Breeding is not continuous. These are sold in pairs, the males have a yellow strip in tails and exhibit spangling and a blue iridescence on their flanks. Females are attractive but not as ostentatious. Pair $8, 6 for $20 (mixed sexes). Bristlenosed Plecos (Ancistrus) These are fry that are between 1 and 1 ¾ inches long. Adults are 3 to 5 inches. Great algae eaters. A must for most tanks. $5 bag of 6 Amazon Sword Plants (Medium and Large)These plants are tank grown. These were harvested off shoots of a mother plants. Medium size are. $4 each Large are $6 each. Amazon Sword Plant (Extra Large) this plant's leaves are approximately 12 to 14 inches long. This plant grown in gravel. This would be a great centerpiece plant $15 Frogbit This is a great floating plant for the aquarium. It purifies the water and filters light. Great for fry and deterring fish from jumping. $3 bag. Pre orders only. Stem Plants (possibly Ludwigia) Nice red on the underside of the leave. Most stems are rooted. $3 Moss or Susswassertang Great for breeding or for fry. Can be attached to grow on ornaments, driftwood or even a Hamburg Matten Filter. $3. Anubias hastifolia (Large) This plant has an arrow shaped leaf. It emerged from in my 29 Gallon. Needs a tall tank or an open top. $8 Sold 29 Gallon Tank, stand and Reflector Standard 29 gallon tank. Very nice wooden stand. The reflector is florescent and works. I am selling because I do not have room for it. If you are would like to purchase message me so I can bring it to the Fishtail gate.

This is a 90 gal (48"L and 26" H) It is planted with common Amazon swords, bolbitis, ludwigia, java ferns, an anubias and a Frans Stroffels sword. These Amazon swords have grown very well and and 3 have become mother plants. As mother plants they send out shoots that develops plantlets with multiple leaves and roots. These shoots of new plants provide cover for the fish on the surface. This tank does not have CO2 and rarely gets fertilizer.. With the pandemic I have not found a good outlet for these plants.. I look forward to our parking lot swap scheduled for October so I can thin out and aquascape this tank.

Please get your August Group Orders for Ken's Fish and Buce Plants in to me by Wednesday August 26th. My email is RichardTrownsell1@gmail.com. In the event the plant order arrives in the beginning of the week rather than close to the weekend I will make arrangements for orders to be picked up at my home in Glen Allen. This is a great opportunity to stock up on fish supplies and try out some unusual plants.
