View Full Version : Dwarf Snakeheads

03-25-2006, 04:39 PM
Okay, I'm looking for dwarf snakeheads. I'm from New Jersey (U.S.), and yes, I am aware that snakeheads are illegal. Does anyone have any idea where I might be able to obtain some?

The species I am looking for:
Ceylon snakehead (Channa orientalis
Frog snakehead (Channa gachua)
Rainbow snakehead (Channa beleheri)

I am most interested in a pair or two of ceylons, but if not I would be looking at gachua before the bleheri. I have been posting on some other forums and looking at online fish stores, but I would greatly appreciate it if anyone here could help me out.

I was about to suggest some of the forums for keepers of predators fish such as waterwolves and monsterfiskkeepers. You can also keep an eye on the auctions over at aquabid where they are sold from tiem to time.

Other than that you could try to import some yourself from asia with the legal troubles that might cause ;-)

One last suggestion is to check out chinatown where you can find snakeheads that are meant to be sold live as food but I doubt that you will find any of the smaller species that way.
