    Got a big one in Sumeshans tank. Well two in fact. One in his predictor tank and one in his shark tank. Both were bought at about 6 cm. The one in the shark tank is about 600+ and the other one in the predictor tank about 400mm. I just wonder what happens to the rest that get sold/bought.

    Even the vlamingis and unicorns. I understand why @crispin get his back up. If you don't have systems to house these species when fully grown, then don't buy them. But the reefers don't understand and just want to eye candy and when they get too big dispose of them like a empty whiskey bottle.

    Yeah - I've kept a couple of big A. blockii's. Here's a 4kg one being re-located.

    I thought your next trip is on a cape craft, a few miles off the cape coast, pulling hard and fast on cape crocodiles......

    You missed deckloads this sunday...
