And oh my goodness. That'd be amazing. Thank you
I'm near the Tampa Bay area of Florida so it'd probably work out... I'd love to have such cute little guys (or rather girls, I suppose) in my tank. They'd be taken care of, I promise!
Okay, count it done. The only thing I need to know is how many you want. If I wait until their bristles come in I'll be able to sex them and can send the number of males/females you want. If you want them earlier, it'l be a toss up. The only thing they need are algae wafers, driftwood and veggies. I read that they're suppose to be sensitive to nitrate, but mine hovers around 10 and they seem to be okay. Be careful about the wood you buy. I got some and wanted to change the shape so I sawed into it and it had a turpentine smell. Although the guy told me it was natural, it was treated wood (arsenic). I had to go to Petco and get some REAL driftwood. Made me so MAD.
I guess the number you want depends on the size of your tank. I have a 46 gallon and would like to keep as many boys as possible, but I have no idea how many that would be. I really need to ask on the forums.
