There are a number of people here that may be more privy to internal info than others...
...there are also speculations and no doubt a bit of interpretation issues abounding with this scenario too - best that it be left for the two parties to nut out - I feel personally that the initial FB post was a bit of a knee jerk reaction and may not have been the best course of action - a more clear line of commerce should have been followed or an agreement written down in (possibly) an email so that both parties know the processes prior to fish being exported.
This is not the first time this sort of issue has occurred in this industry - but it is the first time it has been shared so openly with the public.
Let it rest and view from the outside to see how it ends - what matters to us here most, is that we are still able to access these types of fish again in the future..... I for one, being an importer, am looking into the feasibility of further German imports from our previous exporters.

Its so nice to see that once in a while someone actually can see the grass from the trees
thankyou Mr_docfish

I think too much has been made of this topic.
The parties involved are the only ones that know what has occurred, and it doesn't belong in public opinion.
Simply stating something as a fact doesn't make it a fact. Either you are the owner of the LFS, or you are simply a customer. If you aren't the owner, then you are a customer that may have been told things about what occurred. This doesn't make those things told to be truthful (or lies). It is just what you were told.
So again, stating something as fact based on something you were told, doesn't make it the truth (or a lie).
Perhaps the Department of Agriculture ARE involved (I hope they are). They SHOULD be able to clarify the species brought in, especially with the changes made to our importations!
If there were species shipped that were not on the schedule, the question should be put to them as to why they were even allowed into the country after all their rigorous inspections etc.
I just think it's a great shame that this whole thing was brought into social media...
Anything that is discussed here or FB is pure speculation

To be honest tropheus you have now stated that what I have chosen to share is lies I have been impartial thru this whole process if you actually read what I have written for the purpose of the thread I have l left information out because of not wanting to expand and inflame the situation at best something you should probably had taken note to do .


Don't ever call me a liar unless you know as fact what has happened and witnessed it to comment on the truth when you have done is make a great of assumptions and  don't have a clue or idea what is going on or what has happened.


Do you fully understand the Nature of what has happened do you fully understand that your comments are baseless and useless do you .The information I chose to share is fact it's not a he said she said why would you suggest dept of agg should be involved in your opinion which I asked everyone one back off and let it sort it's self out but no you had to keep going with your destructive comments

In case your not aware these forums are a great source of info for all dept of regulation.
So the real issue here with the department of ag is they had all ready cleared the shipment for release as the species Tropheus is on the schedule the variant was not what was shipped but the two variants look almost the same.

I also had over 15k involved in this trying to get some new variants in for all to enjoy so Tropheus with a name like that I thought you would be someone who would understand when a fellow breeder keeper asked In a nice fashion to just let it be and your thoughts opinions to yourself and not fuel this situation anymore would try to help the cause obviously not .

I would just like to thank you for not helping anyone in this situation other than you self to satisfy your own selfish need to put your opinions forward with no correct information what so ever.


to all the other members I thankyou for your understanding in this matter.

Im in the middle of that one and the whole situation should never have been posted on facebook as facebook cant resolve any of the issues all it has done is make a fragile situation worse.

Species that where ordered and paid for arrived and where not the species ordered .

Doas have been paritilly refunded alot havnt.

Payment I beleive is now being paid in full ( i cant confirm this but I beleive it has happened )

Unless you have been directly affectted by this and understand the inner workings of the whole situation its best to keep all opions thought emotions to yourself as every incorrect post on this matter is fueling the situation and will jepardise any chace of getting this to work again.

#359531 Fs Or Swap Male Eretmodus Blue Spot

Posted by thecheif on 13 February 2017 - 08:45 AM

I have a variety of juvies to sub adults but unsexable from that same shipment , Ill be pulling the tank down in the next three weeks as I always breed and grow my fry up with the parents let me know if this can help or if you want to wait till then.

That behaviour could also be the male wanting to spawn and the female having relationship issues with him if you have room try separating them for a month I have two varietys of these clowns and still can not tell male from female .
