    Hi guys,

    Moving tank this weekend, and this guy comes as part of my tank buy. He is going to outgrow my tank at some point so I'd like to send him off to boarding school while I can. I'll be catching him as part of the tank move, so if you can collect on Saturday it would be ideal. Actually once he is in the display tank it will be hard to catch him again so this Saturday is our only window of opportunity.

    I'm prepared to give away him for free on the proviso that he gets a big, healthy new home that is stable. You can make my day though if you have some colourful zoa or shroom frags to enhance my new tank. Any nice softies would also be welcome if you have.

    Please bring a suitable container if you want him! My wife is too fond of her tupperware.

    Cheers!
    Riaan ​

    Lots of R200 notes are always great to have. :)

    No idea. I only viewed the tank for a short period (he is currently in a softy setup) so no idea what his behaviour is like. He was very active though and made a good showing the whole time.

    Just keep in mind when he gets bigger he might start munching on the smaller members of your cuc. (This is primarily the reason why he needs a new home)

    Send me a PM and we'll make arrangements if you're still interested.

    Hey bud

    I think im gonna pass on this one. Would of loved to keep him. As you said he will get bigger and i dont want him to feed on the other tank mates. I see they get up to 76cm :eek:.

    Im sure some1 here will scoop him up.

    Yes i am. Plus its already about 5-6 inches and not cm so its laready quite big. Rather let it go to a bigger tank cause it will get bigger and outgrow mine.
