    I saw some great looking rummy nose tetras at panorama pets recently, not sure if they are still there though (about R17 each). I know I've seen the others very recently as well.....let me ponder about it and try and retrace my steps to work out where it was......

    A batch of about 30 small green neons just looks awesome. So, if you can get your hands on those at a decent price, grab some....they are really something to watch when shoaling. I actually prefer them above cardinals oddly enough :)

    Cheers

    The Congo tetras will take the threadfins apart... Best reconsider your choices unless you want to feed threadfins to congo tetras and rummy noses. Threadfins shouldn't be kept with anything bigger or more aggressive than a neon tetra.

    Hey Vee!

    When did u see them there? I bought 2 from there about 2 to 3 weeks ago, but they were the only ones they had. I've been in once or twice since, and still none! Maybe I'll try them again one day this week?

    Cheers!
    Big G!
