From what I can see, they have a lovely setup. :notworthy:

What substrate are they on?

They are really cool, just as active and inquisitive as Ackies, they just don't have as nice markings in my opinion. I have only seen paul's trio, his baby hatched not long after I visited him :( gutted! Think these are more expensive then Ackies as they are not as common. Paul has a collection I could only dream of owning! :(

A large Storri will max out around 35 cm nose to tip of tail, so about half the size of ackies when full grown. But be warned you may need multiple vivs as they do have the abilty to cause each other very serious injuries, sometimes resulting in death, luckily this has never happened to any of mine. Keeping the same sexes together once sexually mature doesn't work and through keeping a number of these now I have found sexed pairs works best if you are keeping 2.

You can expect to pay between £120-£150 for a storr's

Ah thanks alot, well I don't tend to keep animals together unless they aren't solitary by nature, as I don't breed currently, so only having one fits right into my plans :)

In my experience around people they tend to have even better temperaments than ackies : victory:

As Paul says there vicious litle sh*ts when it comes to there own species though.

Have to second this, they are easier to handle by far, tame down to almost soppy tame, one of my males would sit on my shoulder the whole day if he could :flrt:
Food wise they don't demand anywhere as much food as the larger dwarfs so quite friendly on the pocket and will quite happily live out their entire lives in nothing bigger than a 4x2x2.
