    Hi guys,

    my apples snails are breeding me out of house and home - any of you in Cape Town want them? Otherwise i might just have to setup a tank with a dwarf puffer :yes

    Stunning to watch, but it can get out of hand.

    In my previous two tanks they use to breed all the time, in this one, i have not had one successful clutch of eggs? :scratch:

    Why don’t you consider them with garlic? :evil

    Henk: can you actually get hold of dwarf puffers (Carinotetraodon travancoricus)? I'm really intrigued by them. Seems like the perfect small tank fish.

    You're sure they're the proper ones? I'd be interested if one of you guys could keep an eye out for me for them.
