Pencils, Amano shrimp, and Chili Rasboras back in stock!

After many months of struggling to have Amanos in stock consistently, and to get a decent quantity of REAL Boraras brigittae, they are both back in stock! We have lots of nice fish in the fish room right now, as well as many young home bred shrimp. I am getting ready to head to Ontario for the C.A.O.A.C. Annual Convention, so shipping is only on Monday of this week. Since I will be out of the country, responses may be delayed to inquiries,...

FINALLY updates!

FINALLY updates!

It has been a rough couple months, again, for my poor family! Illness, death of a very close friend, and computer crashes. That being said, I am back on track! I had to replace my computer, and all my software, so its an adjustment getting used to new stuff. I shot a few pictures today of some of the livestock I have available.   I am especially enamored with the Orange Hatchetfish, a new item on my stock list, as they seem to be...

Getting back into the swing of things!

Getting back into the swing of things!

Just wanted to update everybody! Today is my husband’s first full day back to work! While he is not out of the wood (we need to make it three more months for that), he is improved enough for our life to get back to normal. This means for all of you, that I am picking up fish on Sunday! I am working on building my stock list back up, and continuing to focus on my breeding efforts. I started doing a little harvesting from my outdoor...

Modified shipping, fish room work, and picture updates!

Modified shipping, fish room work, and picture updates!

After the brutal winter, struggling to make ends meet, and having issues with getting in quality livestock, I have decided that the best thing for my mental health is to take some time, revamp the fish room, breed a bunch of cool fish and invertebrates, and recharge my mental batteries! I am traveling a lot, as well as writing a lot (a book is coming out soon in addition to my Amazonas articles, Amazonas blog, Hydra Forum blog, and my work on...

Just a few more pictures from this week’s shipment. Reminder- out of town, so limited shipping in Summer months

Just a few more pictures from this week’s shipment. Reminder- out of town, so limited shipping in Summer months

Just snapped a few quick shots of some of the new critters around the fish room. So far, everything is looking great! Pricing should be available by the end of the weekend. Just remember, next week is the last week of shipping for a couple weeks as I will be traveling to Florida. Shipping will be sporadic over the summer since I am doing so many speaking engagements. As always, in person pick-ups are always welcome by appointment!    ...

The Peru order has arrived! Some things I expected, and some surprises!

The Peru order has arrived! Some things I expected, and some surprises!

Many of you know that I have been waiting, not so patiently, for an order to arrive from Peru for a few months now. At long last, it has arrived! There are a TON of fish, many of which are completely new to me, and I am still figuring out the identification of a few. I have gotten restock of Otocinclus cocama, though not many, and also have Hypoptopoma sp. Peru orange again (the orange zebra). I am also SUPER pleased by a tiny little...
