    Some nice species there Alvin. Why you selling? I might be interrested in the Galaxy Ancistrus. Can you reserve them for me please?

    Ditto, reason for selling?
    I am interested in ALL of them if it suits you, I am in CT. But will wait for Slagter to make his mind up.

    I'm sure transport could be arranged, if necessary, I will talk you through it!

    pm me if you can accommodate this sometime..... ;)

    Hi

    Sorry. Gold ancistrus and galaxy ancistrus just been sold. Clown plecos still available.

    Reason for selling: I have successfully bred these fish and want to move on to other catfish. Space is unfortunately the problem or else I would have loved to have kept these fish.

    Slagter: I got a batch of fry from the galaxy ancistrus about 1-1,5cm that I am growing out. They should be a decent enough size in about 3 months time. I will pm you, as well put a post up.

    Liaquat: If you don't mind, I would like to give first dibs to Slagter, if he is interested in the clown plecos or to another buyer based in Gauteng as there will be less stress on the fish. If there are no buyers from here and if you are still interested, I will gladly post down to CT.

    Thanks for the response.

    Regards
    Alvin

    I have the Clown Plecs I got from you last time, so I don't have space for them at this time, but I am definitely interrested in the Galaxy Ancistrus when they are ready to go! I had one once and he was beautiful! Would love to get a few again for my new planted tank... I just wont put any swords in the tank!!

    Glad to hear your reason to sell ;D I don't mind at all
    I have these fish, but wanted to help a pal onto breeding other loricariids.

    How many clown pleco have you raised?
    My guys have raised a few batches, and are in circulation in CT trade at least...and right now I can't recall if Panaque maccus or Peckoltia vittata

    Contact me if you know which other cats you want.

    I always have a few hidden gems around ;)

    Hi

    Slagter: No prob. Will keep a few aside for you.

    Liaquat: Out of 2 spawns from p maccus, I raised just 9 fry. Most of them I lost through a combination of fungus, inexperience, Eskom and not letting nature do the work. P. maccus is an ideal intermediate challenge as they are not as easy as common BN to spawn. I will be glad to share any information you may need on keeping and breeding them.

    If I do not get a response from anyone tomorrow, I will pm you as to whether you still want the p maccus. I will also pm my shopping list to you. ::)

    Regards
    Alvin
