Wanted

To all my Southern California fish friends. I am looking for a Calvus. I can't find one at any LFS and they haven't seen them around for months. SO does anyone out there know anyone that is will to part with one or maybe even know a breeder? I really want one.. I have one but would love mate/pair. Thanks

I'm in the central San Diego area would be willing to travel.. Maybe

That is a nice one! I have 2 that are just like that (black and yellow). Also have two fire fin compressis and a lone "inkspot" Calvus which I'm trying to find a pair.. I guess I could buy one online but effin shipping $40! At that price I might as well wait until the shop gets one and and get two. LoL
