Hi Stacey

I think you have emailed me direct and I have sent a reply. We have mud skippers in stock - all eating frozen blood worm and brine shrimp.

I've got a world of water near me (birmingham ways)

It seems an ok shop, but they didnt have much, fish stock wise anyways but it was a nice place as you entered it really. nice display and nice tanks for sale etc.

They wwerent too bad helpfulness wise either ^^

the reptiles are crap, but the fish are ok, most are from TMC
The world of water near me is crap....infact its been re-named World of Horrors !!.........TMC only sell marine fish ....ive never seen mudskippers on TMC lists........i think they'd get them from direct import like we did at maidenhead aquatics.

Be warned that most skippers are very territorial & males will fight to the death!! You need either a large area or only 1-2 males in a set-up with females.

Depends where you are located really - Britain`s Aquatic Superstore near me in Bolton, ALWAYS has a constant, fresh supply of them in. There isn`t much they haven`t got, and definitely nothing they can`t get. I shouldn`t be giving them the thumbs up really, for fish they`re ace, for reptiles, they`re scandalously bad (in terms of everything!).

Alright...no need to start throwin toys around !!......perhaps some TMC's sell brackish water and some dont.....the one i used to visit in bristol to buy marine stock never sold any brackish or freshwater species.

I used to buy stock from BAS, they get some nice rare fish in sometimes, do they still have the 2 large tanks in the fish section? with the pharaoh ants that crawl over the stock tanks ?
