I think that I would even adjust my "must have" list if I ever came across one. The browns and reds are nice and it is a good sized fish for a 100 litre tank.

Hahaha yes indeed...
The coloring is very special and it's just like a little puppy by its behaviour.

Her former keepers tought she was to restless, she was always swimming against the glass.

I didn't noticed that yet.. She's very calm she just likes attention when you're busy in the room.

Have you ever seen one in real life?

Loekie is even more special than I thought! I didn't realize they were so rare when she lived with me. I made the decision to keep gsp's instead of her, knowing someone else here was looking for an abei. I'm happy she lives with someone from this forum rigth now!

yes, sadly there seems to be an endless supply of GSPs in this world ...

but top three in my mind here: number 1 by far dwarfs, an easy second GSPs and then third would be F8s and then a scattering of the occasional less popular species.

Right now in town we have:

Auriglobus Silus or Modestus - Bronze Puffer / Golden Puffer
Red Tail/Red Eye Puffer
Red Eye Puffer
Fahakas
SAPs
Congos
Ocellated Puffers (T.cutcutia)

Actually on paper it doesn't look that bad. It is just that no one ever seems to get anything that I wan in. Maybe I just need more patience.

I saw them listed in the US for $50 once and they sold out quickly.

I know someone who had a friend coming back from Hong Kong and they were going to bring them back one. I should see how that went ...

Wow! Keep us posted!

Loekie is the only abei we know.. It would be nice if someone else had one.. Then you can compore some things.. :)

About the species are the silus and modestus very uncommon. We can't even get nice pictures of them for our database.
