We are getting in just 12 real Altums on Sunday. We are told that they are looking good, are eating well with no fin clamping and that they are about 3 inches from fin to fin.
They are expensive at 48.50 each and 4 are already sold.
They have been quarantined for 12 days now and we will keep them for another week before we let them go making 24 days in all,
We know that these fellas do seem a bit pricey but we are told that many fish sold as Altums are in fact similar wild caught species which are much easier to source.
Anyway guys we just thought that we would let you know,PM us or phone if you are interested.

Thanks

We will try to get some photos posted and are very interested in all your feedback. As regards guarantees, the only one that we can offer you is that we will not l.et these fish go unless we are convinced of their good health.

£25 each. So nice looking. Had to let the guys at the shop know about the tank though... they were gasping at the surface because of the lack of surface agitation. Looked very healthy otherwise though.

We have decided to keep ours for our new in-store re-scape.

They were just too beautiful! We will post some photos of them soon on our latest journal.
