Albino Dantums...

My confession....Iíve been wanting to get some since youíve had the dantums Greg, but I just never got around to doing it.

So when the guy started selling them in AQ, I got some. You were right, they were even pre-dimes, instead of Qaurters when I got mine. Fortunately, only 2 died in shipping. They were very brittle when I got them. But managed to have them survive.

They are now dollar size...hereís a couple pictures.

They were so skittish since I got them....couple months in their own tank (qt). Acts like wild angels. You think they get used to me feeding them and changing their water, but didnít. (I donít think I look that scary  ???) I finally mixed them in with the BSPís. And that solved that problem. From being bunched up in a corner to begging for food in front of the glass. :P :P

Thanks Jon.

Greg...I bought 6, but 2 died on shipping. Hopefully I get a pair from the 4. I have them for three and a half months now....so Iím assuming they are +/- 5 months old. Still aways before they start to breed.

How old were yours when they started spawning?
