    Got a banggai cardinalfish, beautiful specimen but with all my studies etc i'd rather keep my tank understocked :(

    PM me if you'd like to come pick him up. Today would be best.

    Is this fish hard to get ahold of in S. Africa? I know they have recently been added to the Endangered Species list. So I suspect they will soon be super expensive and harder to get.

    A friend of mine has a breeding pair that she is going to give me. I'm currently setting up their new home. I'm excited!!!

    lol viper that reminds me of a time i worked at a local pet shop over a weekend. a elderly lady purchased a gold fish on the thursday. By Sunday he had rolled belly up.
    she brought it to the shop owner I i heard the conversation going along the lines of

    "My fish died"

    "i am sorry. would you like another?"

    "├Żes please and this time a healthy one"

    "Umm, the fish was healthy when you brought it, what did you do?"

    "well you see, each morning I would feed him in the bowl you sold me and then give him some air"

    "oh did i sell you a pump, you dont need a pump with a goldfish bowl?"
    "no silly, i just catch him in the net, pick it up for a few minutes so he gets a few mouthfulls and put him back. I did that for about 10 minutes a day, morning and night. They can hold their breath a long time you know!"

    NOTE she wasnt allowed to get any more living things....i think it was suggested she gets a squeeky plastic mouse to look after.
