    Protopterus Amphibius

    Hey guys,

    Im new here on this forum. I just wanted to know if protopterus amphibius is available anywhere in the US. I am from Kenya and we have these fish here although very difficult to find. Well all i wanted to know was if they are available and if they were how much they go for.

    Thanks.

    Welcome to the forum.

    So far, I only saw them in SGP back in 2006 and that batch was imported fm Japan.

    Saw a few of them in several shops in Japan early this month, price ranged from $300-$350 Singapore dollars.

    Hey guys,

    I currently supply Japan at the moment. You probably saw my fish! I am actually excited.
    I was wondering if there is a reason why the fish are not available there yet.
    Thank you guys for your responses.

    I'm curious, where are the fish shops in Tokyo (if any). I was there in May but couldn't find any. Headed to Kyoto but couldn't locate Big-In either although that was due to my shortage of time in the prefecture.

    I've been trying to get AH to get me Amphibius for a long time but to no avail.
