    ahh man, just saw this one too late, I saw one getting sold at a LFS over the weekend..

    I would suggest you leave this request at some LFS, they get them in from time to time and they can just let you know. I will put some feelers out and if I come across one will let you know

    it is going to sound wierd but I can't remember the name, it was the 1st time I had been there, maybe the CT okes can help, it was the one at Builders Warehouse in Blaauberg..

    Sorry dude, I did'nt ask the price.

    They had one there which was half changed going for R400 which is very cheap, I saw a juvi at Sams going for R600, otherwise they seem to go for anything up to R700 for a juvi and full adult i would guess at about R1500.

    That's about right but it will also depend on the size of the angel as this will obviously impact the freight costs:)Will keep my eyes open for you.

    sheesh you people are getting drilled. I've seen the emperors in full colours going for 700. Apparently the ones that come in with full colours (i.e the adults) dont do very well. Not a good survival rate.

    What you talking. That's the average going rate I've seen them for. The shop in town is slightly cheaper than other LFS so don't act like you can get them for way cheaper:razz:

    There is a LFS in P.E that has this one for R1200
    but i got to ship it which will add to the cost and risk!

    Well if they have had it for more than 5 days and the pic is recent then it looks good, but I would get someone maybe one of the Warens to go check it out. I would get it as they ship OK and are very agro eaters so shouldnt be an issue. Also its not to far from you ? what would the travel time be ?

    But holly crap what is that Kitch crap on the glass and what are they using for substrate looks like hamster food LOL
