    My LFS has had this fish for a year, and nobody has bought it... you'd think he'd cut me a deal with all the business I've given him, not to mention I practically offered to give my 10g setup to him for a discount on the tropheus, but he wouldn't budge.. he said he had to get at least $30 for it because thats what he bought it for.. a year ago.. I suppose he'll wish he had taken the tank when the fish dies....

    If he has had the fish for a year and no one has taken it
    he's got to be asking why? he should cut his losses and
    do a deal with you, tell him if you take the fish of his hands
    it will free his tank up for new stock.
    Mike!

    A petsmart I buy supplies at had the same situation going on. There were five duboisi ($30) and 12 peacock gudgeons ($15) they had for the better part of a year. They finally chalked it up and dropped the prices though(t.duboisi-$8 , p.gudgeons-$4). They went fast.

    Same thing happens here. Most Kiwis keep hands in their pockets keeping money safe. So exotic stuff is hard to get.

    So when you find it just ask and they tend to nearly give them away. Well to me any way.

    nah he won't budge... I've offered him to give him that 10g complete setup for like... $15... which is a good deal, and I would chalk up the rest to buy the fish.. but he wont do it.. which is insane.. he bought the thing for 30 (so he claims).. if it dies he's out 30, if he gives me a deal, he'll get his 30 eventually cuz he'll sell the 10g setup for something like $80.... and yes I did mention the fact that it would free up his display tank... but as you can see I still don't own the fish, so it clearly wasn't effective

    As I get older I find myself thinking about the hereafter - I go into a room and then wonder what I'm here after.

    If you were intending on setting up a colony this site has small tropheus duboisi's at decent prices ($12 for a small Tropheus duboisi Halembe 'Maswa': http://www.davesfish.com/

    There are probably other online sites with similar prices.

    Sorry for highjacking.

    Do these fish ship good. LIke I mean over sea shipping. Say America to NZ?


    Shame this fellow is not interested in budging. Maybe just make it clear to him that he will lose money when the fish dies. And that by getting the tank and cash for the fish he will make money. If that dose not work, then I would leave it. Obviously this person wants top dollar. MAybe come back after a few months and see if the fish is there, and start again with him.

    I've spent some big bucks there in the past (used to keep discus) which I have to admit he was more than helpful in helping me acquire them.. I think he has seen me open up my wallet enough to know that eventually I'll just buy it.. but not this time. I honestly don't want the fish anymore... so Its not a big deal...
