Saw a big one recently for 70 euro, must have been a good 8 inches. Very tempting...

I remember you telling me of your experiences with your Bristle nose kelly. In that they seem to leave all your fry alone. Well iv bin testing that with 1 or 2 of the phantoms and a L114 lately. With great success i might add, freshley spat fry only introduced to the tank completely untouched. Shell dweller fry, brichardi fry, mbuna fry all seperate tanks and different cats Shocking really, since they eat any other piece of food resembling there meaty diet thumbs up Was just trying something out

I keep the adult breeding bn's in the fry tanks without any probs except for above the egg sack young, good thing is the bn's still breed happy enough in with the malawi fry and the malawi fry don't eat the bn young

Yep, they look great as adults Mick. They get deeper in the body and have a big tail. You see them for sale as vampire plecs (or angel plecs)
