Some of you might have read my topic regarding my 2 altums not eating.
I also told there that they were the only 2 left at the shop and that I wanted some more (better for them too).
Anyway, what are the periods of the year that one may expect new shipments of fresh caught altums in the shops?
I have called several shops but they always say that they do not always appear on the ordering lists and that the timing is always purely random...
What are the dates that wild altums are offered in the shops?
Is the situation different for the USA / Europe ?
Anyway, it seems that I have to be patient ;-)

Wildcaught Altum usually appear late in July / early August, the first imports (very small fish) can be the best to acclimatise (but all of these fish tend to be dissapointingly delicate when first imported) It is absolutely necessary to quarantine them for a period, and their survival is never guaranteed. Ask the staff at Hustinx, they usually import them when they are first available.
