    I purchased (4) Brevis almost 3 weeks ago when my order for Similis fell through. I was extremely excited, too excited I guess to notice that 3 of the 4 were roughly the same size and one was much smaller. I do not have the room to house the additional 2 Males and while I am sure my LFS would take them off my hands I would much rather give them to someone who wants them. I have some Similis coming on Wednesday and am going to use a divider to split my 20 Gallon Long Aquarium until I have a fully cycled aquarium for one of the species. Please reply to this thread or private message me if interested. I live in Lanham and am not far from Greenbelt/Bowie/Laurel. If you can pick them up that would be preferred but if not I am sure something can be worked out. I will be headed to Baltimore tomorrow so I can meet you along the way or in Baltimore if it would be easier.

    I am so sorry, I guess I did not set this up correctly (I guess I should figure out how to go about doing that!). Someone picked them up last night so now I just have the pair but you are more then welcome to any fry that come as removing the additional males has started a lot of breeding behavior between the two remaining Brevis as I really have no desire to sell them but have no problem giving them away. Here is a photo of what will hopefully be the breeding pair. [​IMG] If you want I will let you know if/when anything comes from this - or from the Similis but they have not even arrived yet and last time they never did so I am skeptical on that one.

    I definitely will. I really haven't taken the time to see what I can or cannot post here (Contact Info) but I will reach out once I see fry and then when they get big enough you are more then welcome to them. Did you just want Brevis or if (Fingers Crossed) the Similis come and out of 4 I end up with at least one pair would you like to know about them as well? This is my first time trying to breed African Cichlids although I did breed Oscars before and from what I have seen Shellies seem to be almost a live bearer when it comes to breeding so I think I will be fine. I have a feeling if I get too many more fish my wife might murder me so I will definitely need to re-home anything that comes from these tanks. Now to try to figure out how I set up messaging :)

    Hey bro this kind will be a first for me. I’ve had other Shellies before but wanted to add something different to my tank

    Oh awesome. So far I have to say they are extremely entertaining - much more so now that I no longer have such a terrible Male/Female ratio but that was entirely my fault. I am at work but cant stop checking my email to ensure that my Similis actually ship since they have been a pain in the arse to get. I am also slightly concerned that my new tank is not fully cycled so may need to make a divider before they come because I cannot find any definitive information on having (2) Shell Dweller species together but with the size difference I Imagine it would be an issue. So far the Mickey Mouse Platys my daughter picked out seem to be fine with the Brevis although I honestly thought I lost 2 and after searching the tank found them inside shells. I know fish hide but it is extremely weird how they are mimicking certain behaviors. I know Platys are a far cry from another shell dweller species but if I could get the SImilis/Brevis to live in 1 tank it would be so much easier. I wonder if I use a taller tank if I could almost make 3 levels of Sand Beds but then I would have super deep sand in some sections which could be an issue unless I was able to use tile or something to raise the beds without using a ton of sand. Sorry for the long post, I am just avoiding going back to work.
