Hello I live in CA and have kept my rainbow, variegate, and Savanah darters for almost a year now. All perfectly healthy, happy and color up nicely in this CA weather. Whenever guests come over, they always compliment that my fish tank buddies look unique and are completely different from any of our western native fishes.

Anyways I'm looking to add more darters to my collection, but the store don't offer much variety so if anyone have any extra redlines, Kanawha, or snubnose male darters lying around, I'm willing to pay for the shipping cost. I've been refreshing Sachs aquaculture store for an entire year now and their redlines are never in stock.

Don't know if PayPal is the safest form of payment, but I can do others as well if preferred. My love for these guys are serious so please keep the replies serious as well. Thanks

Hi Cv89 -- There's a few permitted commercial vendors with links on the NANFA forum, which I guess you've seen.  But for other hobbyists offering wild-caught fish for sale, or looking-to-buy wild-caught fish, we prefer that people use the "Trading Dock" in the members-only section.  NANFA is first-and-foremost an education and conservation organization, not a place to buy and sell native fish.  Many states do not allow wild-caught fish to be sold, or they require commercial permit.  By keeping trades in the members-only section, we certainly can't guarantee that every fish trade abides by local laws, but NANFA members in general tend to be a conscientious group, and if the moderators find anybody not adhering to NANFA ethics they have a bit more control.  Feel free to join NANFA and use the Trading Dock section, rather than posting "want-to-buy" or "fish-for-sale" requests in the public sections of the forum.  Thanks for your understanding!
