Nice collection, I can see why your so proud of them.

Awesome collection! Where is the N.mossambica from? It is very different from the ones we find here.

Mario that is a lovely collection! You dont often see such high white N. siamensis. I know of only one breeder in Switzerland who produces quality siamensis like this.
