    Hi all,

    As the title states, have been looking for one of these guys (or girls) forever with no luck.

    I'd be interested in slings or juveniles or AF.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for looking! I saw that too but it looks to be out of stock, and backwater gets awful reviews

    I have used them once a year ago. They ship with loose substrate. The 2 I purchased from them are alive and well.

    I got my Hamorii female from them before I knew better. two years later and she's doing great, but she had a rough ride to me and was packed horribly. She was stressed out of their mind too
