    Shutting my display tank down and all fish for sale. Giving APSA members first choice with this post as these are all from my fully planted tank and suitable to most similar setups.

    1 x neon gobi - Have him since March and starting to show some nice colour. I suspect he should still get more colour. Great little fish and rare find in SA. R250

    1 x SAE - Fully grown. Nice size for bigger tank. He seems happy in my tank with base of 100 x 30cm. R40

    5 x Otto - All been around a while, healthy and fat. R40 each.

    1 x similis corydoras - Another rare find in SA. He has been around a few years but strong fish. R100

    Also have the following, open to decent offers:
    1 lonely male pencil fish
    4 x very nicely coloured cherry barbs
    4 x old cardinal tetras
    4 x pearl gourami (1 female, 3 males)
    4 x zebra loach

    Just to give you an idea of the colour on cherry barbs and pearl gouramis. Some of the ottos are on the front, bottom right.

    BTW, the gobi looks huge in my zoomed in photos :facepalm:
    He is only about 5cm and would be great in any planted tank. He can be seen in perspective in the full tank shot above in the left-hand side, back corner on the gravel.

    I don't think they will eat the shrimp but might hassle them for territory:

    "These Gobies are aufwuchs and algae grazers, they need to be in a mature tank with a lot of algae growth. They will, however, only eat certain types of algae, mostly short tufty types of algae, not stringy or filamentous algae. They should also accept algae wafers and dried marine seaweed. They may also accept some soft blanched veges like peas. They should not be fed meaty foods as their digestive system is not designed for high protein."

    Mine happily eats spirulina tablets/wafers as well, so you don't have to have an algae covered tank like I do :p
