    We've just released Delphine.....so's she can go find a fella! She was starting to show signs of broodiness.....cave building, hiding in her pipe and refusing to come out etc

    We'll be trying to catch a new one ASAP.

    Cheers

    Nice of you to release her.

    She had such a pretty name!

    Where possible we always release them. We can't breed this species cos they're VERY territorial. And produce upwards of 50,000 eggs :shock: So even if she didn't kill her paramour we Don't want to look after so many squirtlings!
