I have my fingers crossed for you as well. They don't have a very high percentage on breeding in captivity. Please keep me updated.

Mine are F1 so these would be F2. I am not sure if they are mature enough yet. I only had them for a little over 2 years. I forgot how old they where when I got them.

If your giving it away I would be more than happy to take it off your hands at some point. This is my last week of classes, then finals week. I can't wait to clean, rescape, and set up more tanks. I gotta make a stand for the 40 cube jimmy gave me. It's gonna be awesome! Thinking about just letting that tank be tons and tons of vals. The height on would let me grow to their full potential.

Maybe Bill can pick it up and temporary put it in his shrimp tank until you pick it up. .LOL Yeah.. it's free if you already have some. I am only giving it away if someone has a mate for him/her.

A 40 cube isn't doesn't even have half the height for val to grow to their potential.

Haha...I'm sure Bill would love to come home to all his shrimp gone with the SAE chasing nibbling on their remains. I understand how large vals get, but the height on the 40 cube is much better than say...my 30 long at only 16inches. I think I'm gonna start the cube off the right way and dirt it. I already have mineralized dirt ready to go. If I really wanted to do it right I would get some potash and clay too.

I have a bucket he can live in. Ain't no way he's going near any of my shrimp! Lol seriously though, he can be a boarder in my 125 for a while if need be. Only thing left in there is bottom feeders, kribs and rams.

Hey Van...when you say big...exactly how big we talking? Most of my SAE are about 4-5 inches. They get real fat when I'm around to feed them everyday too haha But when I'm here at school my dad only feeds them every 2 or 3 days, which I think keeps them hungry and lets them do their job...eating all the algae off my plants haha

This one is at least 5" and over 1" thick. Algae? This one doesn't know what that is. S/He fight with my discus over freeze dried blackworm. This one slowly ate my entire population of amanos growing up. I think it was eating my baby ABN as well.

Nemo's has some good apisto stock right now. A little pricey.

Nijsenni: 50/pair
Panduro: 45/Pair
Macmasteri: 55/pair
Trifasciata: 45/pair
Steindachneri: 40/pair

Was TEMPTED. But kinda pricey. I believe they get it from Atlantis in NY.
