And I definitely understand about it being a limited market.. just trying to research on these guys only gives me like 6 first hand accounts of the fish including 4 YouTube channels and 2 are in spanish.

A search of the ACA classifieds shows them being sold 10 for $40 at .75" of an inch.
Mine are over 2"

A search of aquabid turns up a small size as well.

Mine are over 2".

I did adjust the price on them. If anyone here is interested.

Cool thanks for your input. As far as price i was going by prices I read here www.gcca.net/art-pics/cichlid-profiles-l...-sarotherodon-caroli
On a species closely related to this one where it suggests a retail price of almost $300. And I also found old aquabid ads where they were offered years ago for over $20 a fish.. plus shipping. I personally paid about $55 in shipping alone. I'm willing to take a loss on the fish as they aren't something that I'm personally interested in that's no problem.
As far as posting on the Facebook page I was serious about asking how to get my fish into the curated auction.. maybe I shouldn't of attached a video as it wasn't necessary in order to have my question answered.
I wish I would of been able to go to the ACA convention.. but just like alot of people I can't afford it. Lab quality comes from the fact that I got them from a lab who collected these themselves a few years back and finally saved some fry hence the f1.

A few thoughts first I could of picked up 10 of these for 30 bucks at the aca when I was there two weeks ago.

Personally I think it is a fish that very few people are really interested in. Kind of like selling land in remote part of Wyoming it might be valuable to a few people.

So not many buyers

Next what does lab quality F1 mean? F1 means parents are wild which is the opposite of a lab raised fish.

Lastly please ensure you are following the rules and don’t post about them on our Facebook group, page and forum as work around a for trying to sell them.

I'm kind of surprised nobody's snatched these guys up already. I didn't think I was being unreasonable for lab quality fish? Any thoughts?
