I'm interested in getting a Tryssogobius colini, and about how much it would cost? I'd like to get 1 or 2 of these guys. I'm just wondering if you are able to get them in stock. Below is a picture of one just in case the scientific name isn't familiar.

Nick,

I am familiar with The Blue Eye Tiny Dartfish Tryssogobius colini, and have maintained a few of them for a year or so in one of my aquariums. These fish are most commonly imported from Cebu in the Philippines. Unfortunately this beautiful and tiny fish oftentimes arrive to the states in a weakened condition due to them not being fed often enough (or at all) post-harvest. For this reason, finding quality, healthy Blue Eye Dartfish can be challenging and in my opinion, is why we donít seen them more frequently.

I will work on obtaining some quality specimens that we can offer in the Divers Den section, and the price should be around $30.00 each.

Cheers!
