I had a breeding pair about 4 years ago but the female just dropped dead in front of us one day.

We presume it was a heart attack as it was instant.

I sold the male to someone here in Logan.

They need 3-4 moths a year of real cold water or they die off and I think that is what has caused the decline in their numbers.

What about keeping them outdoors?

Because I've heard a lot of people have had them just drop off.

I jumped on the blower, the website is under construction, but they did have 4 in a month ago.

He is chasing more next month and does not ship generally. Not certain he will get them yet.

Nice find.....

If only I knew about this a month ago.

When I get a couple of pairs,I will definitely part with a few.I have been waiting a while for them to come up at auction and they're just pairing off now.Some are runt-ish(4-5cms),fully coloured and not looking like getting any bigger but still fine.'Got them from Ozzie,down here.Could be a while before I part with any.Will let you be the first to know.

Unfortunately the only times that I see Ozzie are at the auctions.The next one is about the third week in october(you can check the edas website for exact date).I will contact the edas president and see if Oz' will be willing to give out contact info.Don't know if he ships though.The Sajica have been fetching him good $ at the auctions with myself and someone else bidding ferociously against each other($45 for first 4 and $55 for second 4 w me being outbid in prev' auction at $110 for 4!) so maybe he will hold on to them till then?If he's giving out his info,you'll get it asap,otherwise I will get some in oct for you if they're up again.

Just spoke to Oz and he has a lot!!! They are $12.50 ea at 3cms,though he doesn't ship.Can you send me a personal message w a contact no as I'm 60 ks from the airport and nutting the details out of getting them to you is better done directly.I've never shipped interstate before,so this is a learning experience for me.

He hasn't rung and i haven't had 2 seconds to head down, did pop in a couple of weeks ago but the big boss wasn't there and the young bloke wasn't sure.

I called them up a few days ago, told me the breeder lost his pair and he has no more leads. So unless the people who bought the first batch breed them, we won't see any balzaniis for a while.

I dont want to give false hope here that balzani will be available any time soon, but there is a colony in the country, owned by a pretty well known breeder who does not want to be named at this stage, despite my badgering. There may be some available early/ mid next year.

Waiting on a call.
