We will offer a $5 discount on orders over $15 to anyone who mails back the styrofoam lining of our shipping boxes. This saves us time, keeps shipping cost down, and puts less waste in the trash since the materials will be reused. Please send the pieces back in a flat envelope or package and send them as cheap and slow as possible, there is no rush. Then please recycle the cardboard box and we will apply your discount to your next order. Thanks!

Southern Redbelly Dace - Chrosomus erythrogaster

Price: $5.00 each

"Good community stream fish that is very active. These tend to go in and out of color frequently when well cared for. They often color up and show off the bright red bellies in the morning and then it fades away mid day only to fire back up as light fades in the evening. They can also color up after being fed or after water changes. Also relatively easy to breed in captivity, ask for details if you want to give it a try. Feed well on flake and frozen foods and do best with some algae or plant matter supplemented in their diet. "
