    Cacatuoides Near Dallas, WTB

    need a pair of cacatuoides, color variety isnt a huge concern to me. will be looking to buy within the next 3-6 weeks. If you have experiance in shipping fish then i dont mind getting them shipped to me. I would rather give my money to a breeder then a LFS that dosent even label fish correctly.
