    I'd like 4x Veiltail Ancistris, 2x Normal Ancistris and 2x Blue Neon Tuxedo Guppy.

    Is the L10a - Red Lizard Pleco this whiptail: http://www.planetcatfish.com/catelog/species.php?species_id=747 ? If so, how big are they? I've got one (I'm fairly sure it's a female) and I'm looking for another 1 or 2, but ideally I need to be able to sex them as I want to get at least one male.

    I work in Bruma, so I can pick them up from you after work during the week.

    And morris - if you can accomplish the same as Simon Forkel with his Altums - that would be great. He raised the fry to be used to normal water conditions like pH of 7 etc. So that most fishkeepers can keep them.

    Breeding L46 is not as difficult as Altums. Getting a good mix of males and females is the difficult part but mostly the cost of a good group of these fish.

    But the L46 is also very hard to keep and fragile, so raising them accustomed to normal water parameters and quality, then more people will be able to keep them?

    Good morning Guys/Girls
    I am Brand New to this form and hoping someone can assist me.

    I'm looking for Otocinclus (otto)'s... does anyone know where i can find and if not, where to order from an import perspective?
    I tried most of the shops i could find in the East Rand area and have had no luck to date.
    I want them for algae control in planted tanks and it seems that they are the most shrimp friendly.

    looking forward to your response.

    Wait till summer...they are seasonal, so chances of you finding them now is slim. And IF you do...expect them to be around the R80 mark

    thanks for the reply Pool.

    I hope you're not talking about our summer, haha.
    I wont REALLY mind paying the R80 at the moment if i can find a couple.

    I am looking for about 10 to 12 of them but 2 or 3 would help if i could find now.

    Unfortunately yes...some retailers MIGHT import them from the east, but by the time the stock gets here...they shocking.

    Usually they start getting readily available from retailers around October...
