These are some reasons to why never reach us... ...

(1) When come to China goldfish, importer is not willing to pay for any thing more than a dollar or two. The mortality is high sometime, so we must understand them in term of their business point of view.

(2) For usual cost of a butterfly or dragon eye, hobbyists will tend to compare with those Mainland or Qianhu which they can get for $8 to $15 only. Hence to spend $30-$40 per piece (including shipment, etc), usually the buyer will shy away.

(3) For good bloodline, to get these fish we have to approach home breeder (old master) usually cannot get in a commerical fish farm. Having said that, some time, they do have good quality in Qianhu for a very cheap price. Guess, most hobbyist rather to drop by Qianhu once in awhile to check their luck!

(4) Very little hobbyists understanding and appreciate high quality butterfly.

Also probably butterfly got to keep like tosakin to maintain their well spread tail, that's why when people think of the effort got to put in already shy away. :idea:
