I have one right now. She is about 2 1/2 inches, and has not molted in 2 years. Very small eater too. I have had her for about 3 years now. But when I bought her, she was pretty much the same size. I hope she decides to molt....it has been forever.

so this species is a real slow grower? Ive always admired this species, though its rarely on a dealers pricelist.. im going to look into one. How much do you think a adult f will run? 200?

ill put it this way, i would not take 200 for a mature female. but i also wouldnt give 200 for one so....
I have never seen a dealer selling adults. and I want to see them CB in the hobby not WC especially for this one.

if and when i have slings ill probably ask 35-45 bucks each for them at 1/2" or so

These are some of the most attractive of the US Aphonos, in my opinion. I've got both male and female, although my girl needs to molt. I'm hoping she hurries up about it before the male (having just matured) loses his freshness.
