Good shout Ady, i shall be on the look out for it tomorrow (free fish food), it's getting harder to find around my neck of the woods as my local Tesco don't stock it anymore :cry:

I have thought many times about taking out a subscription but it's the thought of shelling out £60 in one go, especially as i don't buy it every month, i'm also waiting for the subscription offer i can't refuse (been tempted a few times by tank offers lol)

Got it from WHSmiths today, it didn't have the free food with it though, it had 2 sachets of Stress Coat! The subscription offer is ok but that's where i keep holding out, the price is ok but the U2 is no good for me, it's too big for my fry tank & way too small for my other tanks (even to use as a back filter). So i'll wait & see what next months offer is & so on & so on & then i never end up subscribing :lol:

They had one at my local MA the other day (i was on the hunt for Altolamprologus calvus) & it was stunning, looked lonely by itself but it is a tad aggressive :lol: Not sure if they will be able to rehome it as it looked fully grown.............................................if only i had the space :lol:

Wish I had the room too..the markings are gorgeous.
The thick lip wasn't my cup of tea but if I had the money and space
I'd build a biotope for them in a big tank
