Seller assumes all responsibility for listing this item. You should contact the seller to resolve any questions before bidding. Currency is U.S. dollars (US$) unless otherwise noted.


Please be aware, bad & cold Winter Weather may delay the shipping day and time. If you live in an area where you know the weather is simply too cold or are experiencing heavy snowfall or storms causing possible delays and making shipping dangerous to the welfare of the fish, please do not bid. If you have any questions about this, please contact me before you bid.


Up for auction is a group of 8 unsexed, tank raised, Aspidoras poecilus. This bloodline is from Rob McLure who is the USA’s top Aspidoras breeder and authority. As many of you know, many of the Aspidoras that are in our hobby today are hybrids, so it is important to keep your species separated from each other. The auction fish are sized around 3/4" to1” in total length. Full size on them is less than 1.5". Photo shows young at 3/4" young. Easy to keep and spawn, very, very active in your tank, they eat anything and like a current. This group of 8 should give you a sex ratio that will get you some breeders, but the winner of the auction will have the chance to buy a few extras at the winning bid price per fish.

Remember these are healthy, tank raised fish, being naturally spawned and raised in aquariums in our own hatchery, NOT stressed out, emaciated imported fish (which are often misidentified) that just arrived in the USA and are ready to die! These are NOT pond raised or farm raised using artificial methods either, as some others call “tank raised”!!

Only method of shipping offered is USPS (United States Postal Service) Express Shipping. For a box weighing just under 5lbs. the cost can range from $45 to the East Coast to the Midwest and up to $65 to the Rockies and West. Serious bidders, BEFORE YOU BID, email me your shipping zip code for shipping cost and delivery times, some USPS Express shipment may also be a 2-day delivery. IF you are a 2-day delivery, using the hold for pick up at post office option may be required in these winter months.

Weather may delay shipping of fish

Live delivery will be guaranteed, as long as someone is present to receive & sign for shipment on the first delivery attempt. (Please make sure fish are unpacked & tended to upon arrival, as any DOA must be report to me within an hour of package acceptance. Photos of DOA in original, unopened bag required.). If using the “hold for pick up” option or a PO Box, packages must be picked up within 2 hours once available at your post office.

Live delivery is guaranteed to you, but I DO NOT GUARANTEE THE DELIVERY TIME! This means I guarantee you get live, healthy fish, if they arrive an hour late or day late, but alive and in good condition, you do not get any money back for the late delivery.

I do not use USPS Priority Mail (and please don't ask me to, saying you will take the risk!) because they are so unpredictable and unreliable. I have already had packages in the past take up to two weeks to get delivered; I will not to take a gamble with living things!!! Let us avoid any problems, headaches, arguments and hard feelings just to try and save a few dollars!!

Again, email me at BEFORE YOU BID if you have ANY questions about the shipping or ANY other possible questions. Payment must be sent within 5 days of auction end, PLEASE! PayPal or United States Postal Service Money Orders accepted only. There will be a 3% additional cost added to the final total once shipping is calculated in, this is to help cover some of the banking, service and handling fees that I get hit with!
