I need to get rid of this little guy as he has completely stripped my tank of most of the little critters. He's +-3cm

Any decent offers will be acknowledged. Frags are also ok

Very mature tank, pref with a pod cultivating area incorporated into the system. Think about them before you get one, please! :)

Hi ManderinMan - I am glad that you know that your tank is mature enough. It is bad enough that we hear to often of lifestock dying off.... And I just LOVE manderins...... And I gather, as your nickname states -so do you.

It would just not be nice to hear in 4 weeks time that the poor little manderin has died....

the fish will slowly starve in your tank.... i am glad Steve has shown that he has the fish's best interest atheart by not selling it to the 1st guy that asked for it... lets hope it goes into a mature system like Jacques

Henk please stick to the rules of the thread. You have no idea regarding the suitability of my tank as you have not seen it. What stock it has in it or anything else!

OK - as this is indeed a "For Sale/For Swap" thread, we should rather stop with the comments. Fishy Steve - please indicate whether you are prepared to sell/swap the manderin with ManderinMan, or not.
ManderinMan - I am QUITE sure that Henk also has the manderin's life and health in mind, therefor his concerned comments. I do not and cannot see any other reason for him making comments, other than worrying that the fish might die in a non-mature tank.
As he has been in this game long enough to have seen these poor little creatures die too often in many tanks that do not have enough food for these critters.
The problem is, I also know that you had a manderin before, that your previous manderin ate prepared foods, and this one does not.
So, it is VERY likely that you might be underestimating the damage that these little fish could cause to an aquarium's population.
The beautiful manderin I had, which died last year December of whitespot (I had a VERY VERY bad outbreak in my tank), nearly decimated the pod population in my 2 METRE tank.
Therefor Henk's concerns....

BUT - the deal would still be between you and Fishy Steve. So, if Steve agrees, then the fish is yours.

From now onwards - no more comments guys, please.

Rather escalate issues with mods/admins in future. Please.

Many thanks and all have a great week!
