So I was browsing the Internet the other day, and I found someone who had just bought some gorgeous albino lyre tail swordtails. They said that they were from a Burnaby pet shop but I've been to all the ones that I know of. So if anyone sees any of them, please tell me, because the searching is killing me. Yes, I know I have a problem. Oh there were also some beautiful wild type swords that I was looking for, but I couldn't find them either, they MAY have been from the same place. Any help is GREATLY appreciated!

Burnaby - the only pet store I know off in Burnaby is April. I know she had some beautiful swords when I was there last weekend but can't remember if they were albino. Check with her though, she might be able to order them in for you. Wild swords and other wild type live bearers - that's a nightmare in Vancouver. I've been looking to get my hands on some for ages. Best way I can think of is to order on aquabid from a reliable vendor with good reviews, get shipped to Blaine or Point Roberts and bring them over yourself. I'm just too lazy :bigsmile:

The only other store in Burnaby I am aware of is King Ed Pets. Don't know if they have the fish in question though. But April is really good about ordering in requests - she even posts here asking for people's requests for her next orders.

I have lyre swrod tails. Only 10% of males show it. Which is necessary since lyre tail males are infertile due to the overly fancy gonapodium, the non lyre tail of the brood are fertile. Otherwise if all were lyre tails you would need to breed them by artificial insemination. Anyone interested in providing a good home I'm keeping list.

I picked some of them up in USA.
