Ziggy, got a week or so until i can put a couple of peppermint shrimp in but would be looking to get the "true peps" as there is more chance of them going for the Aptasia.

Any idea on cost? Mates rates and all that??


To be honest I don't know on price until I collect the livestock, even then it depends whether it's classed as small, medium or large Also as they've not had the true Peps in for a while, I can't guarantee getting them. We are working on getting in some Aiptasia munching Nudi's however..... unfortunately this make take a while

How can you tell the difference between true peps and false peps?

Looks as though a true pep has a bit more detail in his body.

No probs re advice.

Thing is re one possibly having more detail in the body a) that might just be in the piccy and b) that's no use when you've not got the 2 to compare in the LFS You can ask if they are Wurmandii (spelling again ??? ) but they would have prolly been purchased as Peps from TMC and as I said earlier they may be the californica.
