    Hi everybody! Where can I find a vinegar eel culture in RSA?? Please, help.
    Maybe there is somebody out there who can share a few against an "obulus"
    If its in reach of CPT or PE come and pick it up.
    I am looking for weeks now with failed attempts. ;)
    Would be thankful for any hint and tip from you. :):peroni:

    There was a guy in pinelans who had but he's moved to the UK a few years back. Contact Tyron Genade on Tropical Aquariums South Africa he can point you in the right direction.

    Question why vinegar eels? See if you can culture micro worms that's what I cultured when I bred Killies...
