Just to clarify on the urgent - My wife's cats have discovered that there's something moving in the boxes. I would like to avoid having these awesome guys dying because of a playful cat roaming around.
I have 6 Ts for sale (R1000 for all of them) in the Roodepoort area. This is quite urgent so I'm not looking to get too much for the 6.
They all come with the tanks they are currently in and 5 additional tanks.
Salmon Pink Bird Eater - around 10cm (not docile at all)
Chaco Golden Knee - around 5/6cm (docile and ready to handle)
Red Rump - around 3 cm (not sure about nature haven't tried handling)
Curly Hair - around 5 cm (docile and ready to handle)
Brazilian Red and White - around 2 cm (not sure about nature haven't tried handling)
Curly Hair - around 4 cm (docile and ready to handle)
I'd be happy to meet up at any public place in Gauteng for the sale.
If you have any questions feel free to contact me.
We found this T in Swartruggens. I was just wondering if you guys could help me determine which T it is?
We didn't catch the T. We just snapped a pic and let it carry on. We have found other ones on the farm also, but none of them came close to the beauty of this one.
Thanks in advance.

I have a friend that is looking to sell a few of his T's as he is moving and can't keep them anymore.
I'd like to know where we can get some fair pricing for the T's. He isn't really looking to make money off them, it's just a case of he doesn't really want to lose on them.
I can provide the full list here if that will help, but I don't have any pics at the moment. There are about 30 T's Ranging form small to big.
Just some feedback. The little guy seems to be doing great. I've noticed that he comes out every now and again. I've added the heating pad with the bit of cold that has come in and he seems to be eating good again.
Thanks for all the replies.
In the meantime I've gotten another T. A Salmon Pink Bird eater. L. parahybana. Also an awesome little guy, but he is growing super fast. I like it.

Here is a pic of the setup as promised.

Cool. Thanks I will do.
Thanks guys. It's really cool to see the nature of the T community.
The hobby just gets better with this kind of response.
I'll have a look at the heating pad suggestion.
And yes for the moment I'm using potting soil. I'll move over to peat as soon as they have been in the current enclosures for 6 months. I only heard about the peat being an alternative just after housing them.
Thanks for the quick response.
I'll post a pic of the enclosure as soon as I get home.
It is a 10x10x10 cm glass case.
So I have:
Chaco Golden knee
Curlyhair (+- 2cm) - molted once. about 7 feeds so far. (also in the 10x10x10 case)
Dwarf Black Tiger - (when I got it they said it was 3mm but I haven't seen it in quite some time) also 1 molt and about 5 feeds in a 5x5x5 case.
Okay so I'm very new to this so please keep that in mind.
In early Jan I got myself 3 Ts.
So the question is regarding my Chaco Golden Knee. The little guy/gal (about 3.5cm at this stage) keeps digging to the bottom of the enclosure and doesn't seem to be coming up at all.
In the first few weeks the T was eating great and even shed a mold ( the T ate 2 more times after the mold) but now she/he stays hidden all the time.
I figured that it could be due to cold, it has been raining a lot this side (the T has only been hiding for about the last 2.5 weeks), I got a new (bigger) heating pad under the enclosure, but that does not seem to help at all.
If this is normal I'll be happy to accept it and wait out the winter. But if not please advise?
Also I think (ammature thinking beware) that the potting soil might be a bit deep. The enclosure is about 10cm deep and the potting soil fills it up about 6cm. If that is the case is it fine if I just remove a few cm of the potting soil?
The enclosure also contains a small piece of rounded bark big enough for the T to hide under and a coke bottle lid size water "bowl"
If I missed on mentioning anything that is important please let me know and I'll fill in the blanks.
If there is another thread that already covers this (and I've missed it) please give me the link?
