      Dumb question on my part but I'm having trouble choosing and I can only afford to get one or the other. Platinum Endli or Short Body Endli? The only other consideration is the Platinum is twice as much as the Short Body.

      I'm not sure but since they're both anomalies I'm guessing both are probably captive bred and so catch location would be unknown? Or are you just teasing me? lol

      Sorry I totally misread what you wrote. I don't know how, I must be really off right now.

      Edit: And I actually wouldn't mind getting a wild instead but I've been less then patient lately and don't know if I can deal with chasing after Toyin'. I have some credit towards my next purchase with him but it's hard to get a response. I couldn't even get a response from him when texting his cell. Which isn't out of character I know he can be hard to reach at times.

      Based on those two, and not adding others into the mix, I would personally go platinum. That is just based on my aesthetics. SBs don't appeal to me.

      (That being said, you could get a really cool not SB endli for much cheaper!)

      Thanks @Vancouver_98683@Vancouver_98683 and @magpie@magpie for the advice. I'm still not sure what I'm doing but I sent Toyin a email. Hopefully he'll answer.

      Both are definitely captive bred and catch location would be somewhere in Asia.

      Not sure if you'd consider what @Vancouver_98683@Vancouver_98683 has mentioned @koltsixx@koltsixx. Most of the poly guys here prefer wild caughts and cb get love too. Even bubba!

      Most of the poly guys would love PBB and sp dabola. My own preference would be to have a PBB and so dabola instead of the plat/SB endli.

      But to answer ur question....I'd say a platinum.

      They do have to be watched due to overfeeding and easiness of getting plugged up.

      Im picking the platinum. Im probably the odd man out on this but im not into the short body thing.

      Last time i spoke to toyin he had just gotten in koliba and ansorgii. Probably srill has koloton faranah lap and endli along with congicus. Out of his stock im picking congicus if i was only buying 1 poly.

      What are the tank mate kolt ?
