Good luck on operation parental permission. How are the grindals? Any life? It is hard to beat rachovii for looks. Only reality really captures them. Dr. Barry Cooper in Oregon has a number of rachovii populations and is a great guy. Rachovii is just harder to raise as the fry are tiny and need green water/paramecium/rotifers plus bbs for a few days. Eggersi is pretty. I'd avoid kirki as it is usually a weak species.
