    Notes:
    Pablo is still a young fish, only a few months old. I recently bought it from someone who was very happy with it. He was however selling his whole setup so he had to sell the Picasso Trigger. He didn't have any issues with the Picasso (he had shrimps, snails, etc. and the trigger didn't bother them). However, the fish in his system were larger than mine. All the fish in my tank are still juvenile's and I think the Picasso is stessing them out. So, unfortunately he has to go. ​

    Beautiful fish. You're right, it does need to be housed with fish of equal or bigger size. It will at some stage in it's life turn on shrimp and snails though.

    How close to JHB ziyaadb? Close is a relative term - I consider Pretoria close to JHB :p. I might be going through Joburg on the evening of the 23rd. Are you interested in the fish?

    I may be travelling to Vanderbijlpark, from Pretoria. So I can go either N1 or R59.

    Update - I was away for the December holiday and since my return I have noticed that Pablo has actually adapted well to his new surroundings. His new surroundings have also adapted well to him. The other fish are not as afraid of him anymore. It seems like they all live in peace and harmony now, even the snails and hermit crabs.

    However, Pablo is still for sale if anybody wants him.

    Good question chikaboo.

    gMAN, I don't have any real corals (I have a few zoas and a mushroom). But the guy I bought him from had quite a bit and he didn't have any issues.

    chikaboo, I'm about 20 minutes from Lanzo. I can take the fish there. You'll just have to arrange with Lanzo. I'd say the fish is about 8cm.

    Rakabos, we spent a good 45 minutes if I'm not mistaken. :blush: I've been thinking of how I will catch him when I sell him. I think I'll just grab him when feeding. He eats from my fingers.
