    Hi

    Making space for new fish. Arrangements can be made for collection/delivery in PTA and Kempton Park area.

    4x panaque maccus (clown pleco), (sub-adult) - R360 (suspect 3 females and 1 male as 1 as taken up residence in a cave and shows a bit more odontal growth than the others)
    5x cory schwartzi (adult) - R130
    3x cory sterbai (adult) - R85 Will swop for 2 female c sterbai
    5x brochis splendens (green cory) (adult) - R125
    1x gold/albino ancistrus (adult male) - R60
    3x pepper cories (adult large) - R20

    All species will be sold in groups only as they are social fish. Will consider offers to swop for a canister filter not more than 1 year old and in obvious working order rated 500l/h or more. Will also consider swops for other exotic catfish.

    PM me for any other info. For pics and more info on the species go to www.planetcatfish.com

    Would you be willing to ship down to Capetown (at cost to me) also would you be interested in a breeding pair of C. agassizii?

    Hi Philfarm

    I have not shipped fish before and I am a bit reluctant to do so in the event that they do not make the trip (brochis splendens are a bit finicky). If you are able to get someone to collect from either Kempton Park or Pretoria to do the shipping for you, I would be more than happy to reserve the fish for you. That way they would also be able to check the quality and condition of the fish before you commit yourself to any purchase.

    I have kept c agassizii before and if I had the space I would have taken you up on your offer. They really are one of the more 'attractive' cories.

    Please feel free to PM me.

    Thanks

    I'll take the Schwartzi as well... If that's cool? What's the Male/female ratio of the 5?

    Hi Slagter

    No prob. I will reserve the c schwartzi and panaque maccus for you. The c schwartzi are the smaller of the fish from the group, so I would guess 4 males and possibly a female but I stand to be corrected. They are easier to sex when they are conditioned for breeding, which in itself is a bit challenging.

    Thanks
