    thank you all. :)

    ste: yes, I do breed them and now I trying to breed Adoketa and L46. Unfortunately, I have no luck yet. I guess you already know the purpose of putting the mirror into the tank, and yes, I think I can take photos without the mirror, but it will take like ages. :wink:

    Bigbird, do you mean Wildcaught Elizabethaes or Elizabethaes in general (when you talked about their availability in Sydney).

    Elizabethaes have been available (from memory they cost around $140 or so each). I can't remember if they were wildcaughts or not.

    Thomas has bred some, maybe you can buy some off him if you liked.

    hi Awth

    I'm not sure whether Bigbird knows Thomas, but he is well known in Discusforums among the local Apisto enthusiasts there.

    I work with Thomas in the same company :)

    ic..... tell Thomas that awth send him regards, and tell him to drop by the HK forum (he knows) when he is free. Haven't seen him online for quite some time. Thank you, bro.
