Hello everyone. My name is Andy and I have been selling and buying on AB for several years now. My AB username is yimes. I have been lurking here as well for several years but I do not post much. My interests are mostly with fancy and wild livebearers. I have been keeping fish for most of my life, with my first 20 gallon at age 10 and I currently am running around 45 tanks.

I recognize many of the people on these forums from past transactions on AB and I look forward to contributing a little more here in the future. Thanks and good luck with your fish.

Welcome to our little world of organized chaos. I'll take a dozen of those fish in your avatar.

Helleaux Andy and welcome to the forums.

Umm - I'm RMC's transhipper so when you are ready to fill his order please contact me for my address.

Please ignore the posts from the above two hooligans. New federal guidelines dictate that all fish must be processed through our state-of-the-art facility. Please send us a sample breeding group of the fish in your avatar for proper inspection. Thank you. - F.

Ahh the fish in my avatar....he was my pride and joy for several years, unfortunately he is no longer with us. Some of his offspring are still around and I am hoping that they too turn out just like their dad. Their story is my greatest triumph and disaster. After several years I had a true breeding line of these that were beautiful. About a 6 months ago I lost my breeder population. Unfortunately all I had were some fry in a separate tank and they are currently growing out but Variatus take a long time to fully mature so I am stuck hoping I get a nice mix of sex and finnage.

Here is a sideshow of my pre-disaster stock, if interested.

I just knew it had to be Urban Myth that men didn't know how to replace TP!

Yimes, I hope you enjoy your time around the board here as much as you do your 45 tanks!

I saw your video; pretty! Losing them had to hurt.

"Yimes" - contraction of "yikes" and "blimey" - portrays awe. Is that what made you select that user name - being yimes over fish?

Have fun!
