    I haven't seen those in any pet store that I go to. Why not ask a decent LFS or pre order

    Will be expensive!!!

    The ones for sale are usually tank bred.

    Ask your LFS to try and order for you.

    Not sure if their suppliers will have any on their lists of available fish though??

    Good luck

    Animal Kingdom had some clowns with funny patterns on them a couple of weeks ago, not exactly like these but similar.

    Maybe speak to them and see if they can source it for you.

    Picasso's are like $120 overseas. So if you take a normal Ocellaris which is $12 there and convert it you would be looking at roughly R1200-R1500 per fish, if you work on the price of a clown here costing between R120 and R150. Worth it for a clown? I think not :)

    For peeps living in East London? Who sent you the list can u send it to me? :p

    Platinum Clowns?!?! Looks more like zombie clowns, I can already imagine them gliding sideways with a limp fin and feasting on the brains of your living fish!

    Now THOSE are REALLY fugly fish! Sorry - I just don't get what people see in koi - same with these fish.
    In that case, a soldier bream is a far more beautiful fish! Or a SHARK! ;)

    Are these clowns not man made. At the last IMACSA thing at Emperors Calfo was running this sort of breading down. It is like the dyed corals and color injected fish.:nono: IMO

    Fish importers dont import these fish it only encourages continuation of the practice.
