I am leaving this country soon, and would like to find someone who is interested and also has the ability to take care of my darters.


I live in Fairfax, VA now. I have a aquarium with darters and other species from VA local creeks and southwest Missouri. I caught them by myself and brought these Missouri fish all the way from Missouri to Virginia, which took me 17 hours of non stop driving.... I really like them, but I have to find some to take them home as I am leaving the country soon.


Here are the species I have now.


Orange throat darters, rainbow darters, yoke darters, Ozark darters, and fantail darters from Missouri


Rainbow darters, fantail darters, green side darters, and tessellated darters from local creek. 


Also one slender madtom and one banded sculpin from Missouri.


I could release all the local caught fish back to local creeks, but I could not release those fish from Missouri here. So I hope there is some one near me could take them home and take care of them after I leave. They are all in very good condition and I feed them frozen blood worms and brine shrimp. You can take the whole aquarium with rocks, live and also dead clams, live plants, light and filter.



My phone number is 417-379-6297, please text me if you are interested.

Young, have you gotten any takers? Would you be willing to ship fish as well as give them to locals?

Please don't release any. Bad practice, and usually illegal even if native to the drainage. Better to find a home or even euthanize them rather than risk introducing a tank born disease.
