Be prepared to pay a high price. I would buy a large group and raise them up to get females it would be much cheaper.

It is highly unlikely you will find someone who would be willing to sell you only female bulu reds. Especially ones 5 inches or more. Now if you are willing to pay much more than they cost in pairs, then you might fined a few. Your best bet is buy f1's and grow them up.

I agree that buying a number of f1's is best chance to get more than one female. If you are willing to part with the numerius males that will be extra.

I never actually raise a fry till adult. My patience get the best of me and I sell them off. Have anyone here actually raise a petro fry all the way till a full grown adult? How long did it takes? I know there is alot of variable that is involve in the growth of a fish but an estimate be good just for knowledge.

I have a bunch of f1 longola that were 6" before 1 year of age. They're almost 2 years old now and the males are 8-9". The fish were spawning at 1 year but the females are now holding to term. you won't have to wait long for f1 fish to be ready to go. Lots of good food, water flow and regular water changes and they will spawn in no time
