    So, I went to my local exotics shop this morning to see the B. Emilia they had. Took one look at a B. Hamorii and fell in love! It moulted last night and was looking beautiful! So, yeah, I changed my mind and bought the Hamorii instead! Going to pull the moult out later and see if I can sex it. Not hopeful as the moult is squished down behind the bit of Cork, but I'll try!

    Thanks! It's a beauty! Hoping it's not gonna turn into a flicking monster! Very calm at the moment, Sat in the same spot all the way home and doesn't flinch when I lift the lid either.

    Wow! Stunner. A classic of the hobby. In my neck of the woods, a beauty like that would have cost me my left great toe, my #3-500 Spider-Man Comic book collection and some magic beans. ...... Now...if I only had some beans.....
