ORA Semi-Picasso Clownfish For Sale

I am trying to sell some ORA Semi-Picasso Clowns for a friend. He will be dropping them off at my house tomorrow and I will try and get some pics up soon after. These clowns are a must see as adults. They have some very unique patterns. They are classified as semi because they don't have the full markings. They may still get them as they mature but haven't completed the markings yet. He is asking $75 each or $125 for the pair. He may drop off some other fish also, he wasn't sure when I got off the phone. I will be available Thursday, Friday and Sunday afternoon. These are not mine, so I will not hold them for anyone without payment. If he is asking too much, make an offer and I will forward it to him. I know he needs money for property taxes, so he will probably negotiate.

I'm looking for the grade B variety, a little cheaper and I like the look of them. Yes, please see if you can get some.

Ounce I hear back from my source, I'll let you know the price if they are available. Shipping is usually the killer part but the price is usually discounted well if more than one is purchased.

Sorry it took so long to get back with an answer but I can get up to 4. $75 each or $125 for a pair. I must be paid in advance for the fish and the shipping can be paid before I ship them to you. I'll need to know ASAP, they are only being held for me until Friday.

They are coming from the source(ORA) through my contact. My contact owns a shop, I can't reveal its name or I will loose my discount. That not only hurts me but those that I pass the savings onto.

As of this morning, yes. They are on a first come basis. They don't like to hold and wait orders, they want definate nows. They gave me one wait, I can't ask them again. I will refund any orders if they are out but I won't order without payment.

I've been on a waiting list for the "true" or grade "A" for about three years. ORA doesn't like to give that grading unless it is obvious what the markings are or they are older and have changed enough so the markings are true. I was advised to take chances with the "semi" and hope they morph into a true. Also, I was told that ORA tends to let larger retailers skip the list. I don't know if that is true though. They won't release a price on them either unless they are available.
