    Hi everyone.

    I've got a colony of Tanganyikan shell-dwellers that I am looking to re-home. It is very well established, the aquarium they're in has been running for over 14 years. Unfortunately, some circumstances have changed and I need to find a good home for them.

    They are ideally kept in a species tank, other fish will just get harassed or be big and mean enough to eat them. In terms of shells, I've used periwinkle and alikreukel shells for them (they're tiny fish but they definitely prefer the bigger shells!). You're very welcome to take the shells they currently have. For tank size - I would say at least a 3 foot tank, the more floor area the better. They need a fine substrate like river sand or very fine gravel. You'd be welcome to have the aquarium they're in now, the only thing is that it has started to leak in places due to its age so I would advise having it resealed.

    They're a truly fascinating species, please contact me, either on this thread of via PM if you are interested.

    Kind regards,
    Ryan

    Hi Paul

    I sent you a PM, not sure if I was clear in my first post, but this is for collection in Port Elizabeth. I see you're in Cape Town.

    Would you be able to collect them?

    Kind regards,
    Ryan
