    imran has 2 in his 5ft they are lovley.. a purple down here goes for between R1000 and R1500...

    they are very agressive with one another so take care make sure the tank is big enough and that they are well conditioned prior to introduction housing them seperatley from one another untill the time comes..

    good luck these buggers are 1000X worse than yellows..

    I bought one from wild on pets about three weeks ago. They still have one left, it is a nice size and they have had it for about 2+ months and it is eating nicely. Think they were selling it for R1200.
