How long is a piece of string?

I can do the common ones easily enough - if it's any of the tiny white/pink ones (several species) you found at the beach then that's a different game. If it's the pet trade tiny white ones then that's do-able.

I was hoping you would reply
I'm going to be receiving two different sorts over the next week or so (so I haven't got pics yet) but I thought I'd put feelers out now...

The "trade names" are American Grey and another that I'm going to have to look up...
Any ideas?

Haha, I should have said UK ones...

Haven't heard of 'American Grey' but I'll have a look and see if anything looks likely. A photo might help when they arrive...
