If u feel price too high, dun buy. Sooner or later they will dropped a bit. Take l24 and l273 prices a few years back, 300 to get a small piece, now only about $58-78 can get a nice l24
agree with you dont buy sooner later once hybe over price drop like the plecos and even now those rare birchirs and gars price also dropping

What do u mean by rare bichirs? Platinum or sb endi etc prices have not really dropped for those quality ones. Those that sell at $100, bnp $200 at a fb page, not that nice. Platinum endi also same.

Those wc bichirs price also haven really dropped at lfs. Small Koloton selling at $280 and $180 for small wc endi. Those I see those on fb got dropped a bit only as they stopping hobby or some defects. Good buy for those novice or collectors.

Bought some mini IT quite a few months ago. Really slow growth but finally see light at the end of tunnel.

Initially so small got to feed tubifex worms thereafter live feed of small mollies/guppies. When they reach 2 inches, I sensed that they are stable and strong thus slowly switched them them to dried shrimps and krill. Today, surprise that they are as eager for hikari food sticks.

Hopefully, they will be ready to join my tank of 4 big IT soon. Problem is there are 2 big endives in there too..

I realise that taking krills and food sticks make them grow faster than live feeds. Probably I feed more than before since it is so convenient. These days they dance in front of tank for food, no longer hiding. Shiok.
