Albino Sterbai's

Exactly the same as normal sterbai. Just not quite as prolific in my experience.

The price is the same as normals at the moment. It was twice the price of normals a couple of years ago, but is way down now. I'm getting $200 to $275 per hundred.

That is a couple of $$$ more than I would have expected Duck, but not too outrageous. Sterbs have kept around the $15 mark retail every since I got my first ones 15 - 20 years ago. I just keep them cause I like them, along with a few other cory species.

The rest of my collection are species I have not bred yet. I'm trying my hand at the "Elegans" group at the moment, and the Neon or "Lazer" line group of aeneus ???species.

And still trying to breed C mellini (7 years of nothing mad.gif )

Once I have bred a catty I usually pass it on else I would need a fish room twice the size, and a whole heap of help.

is the price you mention a wholesale price alan? for that price... i dont mind either normal sterbai or albino .... if someone can arrange a group buy ...then count me in.

on my last visit to aquapets at bondi they have c. adolfoi for $35 each ohmy.gifohmy.gif but in the end i only bought c. atropersonatus wub.gif

I am not a wholesale outlet, I'm a hobbyist/breeder. The price mentioned is what I get for both normal and albino from wholesalers, and I'm happy with that in hundred lots. What they sell to the LFS's for is their bussiness, and the LFS's charge accordingly.

MJ, you did well on both counts !!!

Duck,,,$35 for C adolfoi is a pretty good price (if they are adolfoi ) I would have expected $50 +....Be carefull, there are 4 species that all look similar as juviniles but aren't!!!!!

not sure if they are real adolfoi ...as they might be duplicarius or imitator or ... just like those trilineatus sold as julii mad.gif

too bad wholesalers dont sell to private ...otherwise we might be able to arrange a group buy dry.gif so i can expand my collection laugh.gif

Oh ! I have given away so many breeding cories to so many "breeders"/ hobbyists it is not funny.

Not only catfish , but rare dwarf cichlids, only to see the the "Keen breeders" sell the fish on, or fail in breeding.

I wonder some times why I bother. sadsmiley02.gif

I think I am still stuck with the 1950's ethic where we all shared !!

Commercialism has sunk the hobby

not quite related to the topic but ,there were quite a lot of corydoras for auction at the VCS auction recently and quite a few rare varieties that fetched quite high prices . It seems there are a lot of coryodoras breeders here in Melbourne

cheers
