    With the wild stock you will get a variety of colors, even the spot on the tail of the peacock just not as pronounced. I like the wilds better than the linebred.

    Maybe for a personal tank, but for a specific breeder, the linebred ones are a better material to work with.
    But these guys ARE endangered, so I can imagine that the wild type are more important in species preservation.

    Line bred are nice, I do have some, but being more for the species maint. I prefer the wilds as do most of the breeders I know. Some keep both wild and do the line breeding like Adrian H at swampriver. He has several lines that he has started out the wild through selective breeding. I could do that also, but that would take more tank space than what I already have.

    Well, I thank you for preserving this rare breed of fish ^^
    If I had the space I would prolly do the same, but I don't have room for what I have now, let alone anything extra, lol

    I have 2 10 gal tanks full. Anthony sent me 8 males a while back and I obtained 4 females. I must have 100 per tank at least mostly young. I thought they were black bar but they look more like the wilds in the pic.

    I checked out the site, no offense but the prices are out of hand. I mean you can get endlers for a couple bucks from breeders on here, aquabid, and even local fish stores are carrying them (but granted if your into tracing them back to collection site you can't usually do this with the lfs ones).

    Agreed, you can get "endlers" from LFS or others. But, as you mentioned, if you want documented N Class Pure -Strain Endlers, there are only a handful of registered Breeders for each strain, and this is one of them...
