    Have you tried Animalia - I bought from him in February and mine still going strong and last time he had a nice variety of colours!

    Why not just arrange payment with him and get someone else to package and ship - I'm sure there are reefers that help you with that - if not the next time i'm planning a trip down that way check what stock he has and I will be happy to ship them of for your'll - sent and received a few packages now from near your with livestock with no hassles - you can just see to the shipping costs and problem solved!

    Ok no problem - I have to make trip soon will get into contact with Steve and see when his new stocks are arriving and get him to pm you - then you sort out payment with him and I'll help you get them to that end of the world! I know he said he is too scared to try shipping but I've learn't quite alot in the past few shipments to me - remember my closest LFS is about 250/300 km's away so we have to learn and learn fast! But you do know its bargaining tool for a good deal when you ready with the ric with the colours that i am MAL about- maybe you guys can get together and make a big order with Animalia then your'll can share the shipping costs

    Thanks Chika, that'll be fantastic cause I saw some of the colours he advertised last time and I was drooling... Overnight shipping door to door is like R120. Nice and simple.

    Yes round about there - I send some snails and hermits last week to jhb - R105 - overnight counter to counter - they even stayed one extra night in the post office reading other peoples mail and still made A O K the following day into the tank - safe and sound - no losses!

    Would love that plz pm me a price and do you stay far away from Rory or Ziyaad - On my next trip thats where I'll be going to - maybe we can meet up somewhere - I normally go to Linksfield Park behind the golf course when I do come down so or I can pay for them now if the price is right and collect later or if you wanna ship - very easy! Thanx Manic
