    I am interested in CARES species. Preferably a livebearer of some kind, but if you have any others let me know too. I want to try and get involved with the program. Thanks!

    You can find Goodeids on Aquabid – check out the Goodeid Working Group.  Most Goodeids are livebearers, although some are not.

    I don’t currently have any livebearers, but I do have a few CARES species available.

    melanotaenia boesemani

    melanotaenia lacustris

    pseudomugil cyanodorsalis

    I have lots of others in the works like lots of wild type bettas, just no fry large enough to pass on.

    Also, if your really looking to help endangered species, check out the IUCN Redlist:  CARES is a fairly small origination that is only able to classify a certain amount of species.  The leftovers they are not able to deal with effectively fall through to IUCN.  So something can be endangered on the redlist and not be listed on CARES, but CARES still recognizes it as endangered because IUCN has it labeled as such.  Which potentially opens you up to a lot more species that CARES is able to handle.

    I would certainly be interested in the rainbows! How much are they?

    William, look under the For Sale section in swap meet.  Mitchell Broome was selling several groups of rainbows.   He is the resident specialist in that type.  Not sure what he has left.

    as for live bears, look for Jill.  That is what she is currently focusing in on.  Don’t know what she has.
