Up for auction is 5 sub adult xenotoca eisini, AKA redtailed splitfins. The fish you will recieve are around an inch and are close to the age of being sexable. Pictured are young males and an out of focus female from a brood of fry born 2 months sooner than the fish you will recieve. This goodeid is a very fun and active livebearer to keep. The males will chase eachother when sexually mature and face off over females (they do not hurt eachother for the most part.) As the males come into maturity they develope a beautiful blue and yellow glimmer. Females tend to stay a bit more bland. Females drop anywhere from 10-30 fry every few months. They will eat their own fry so cover is a must if you intend to breed these! They appreciate a planted tank with little to no current.
Shipping is a flat $10.00. I ship with the USPS priority mail in an insulated box with heat packs if needed. I prefer to ship early in the week. Monday or Tuesday at the latest. I will postpone shipping if weather takes a turn for the worse; we're still experiencing snow here in the midwest.
