Hi; can you tell me what genus we are talking about? 'M' doesn't help me that much.
Thanks

Isn't the flamboyant related to the Supercallifragilastic (S.) phefferi ?

Not sure, from what I have heard it is very difficult.

2- Their magnific coloration means it is a venomous animal like Hapalochlaena lunalata or fasciata?

3- Sice of this animal

Males up to 1.5 inches, females up to 4 inches I believe.

4- Have some of you evr look after this specie in a tank?

I have, but I don't recommend them to anyone but very experienced ceph keepers who will try to breed them as their wild populations appear to be in fast decline.

Octo Oakley has kept a M. pfefferi for a few months now I believe. Haven't heard anything recently from him regarding how its doing or if its still kicking. I believe he got a very young one (either hatched it out of an egg or got small juvenile). Try getting in touch with him, or maybe he'll see this thread and post on it.

Cheers!
