Life is settling down- hopefully back on track soon!

Life is settling down- hopefully back on track soon!

My husband had a severely (over 80%) detached retina, as a complication to the corneal transplant. They reattached it last week, and hopefully we are almost out of the woods. As long as it stays attached, I should be back on track to order more critters within two weeks! This will set me up beautifully to really get back into business by early September, once new critters have cleared quarantine. I will also be offering SCADS of Meteor minnow...

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...

New picture updates!

New picture updates!

Just wanted to share a few more pictures, as I had a bit of time to take some today. The rilis and Aspidoras spilotus are still on super sale! Get ’em while I have them! I will be doing another order next week, and will have some new creatures and restock of some popular items that should be available in time for sale at Aquafest in Herndon, VA, where I will be vending on the third floor for the Friday night room sales! I will also be...

The shrimp shipment is finally here! Plus some other goodies

The shrimp shipment is finally here! Plus some other goodies

I have been promising new shrimp for awhile now, guess what! The time is NOW! I picked up what I think are a few really neat critters yesterday. I will be adding species profiles soon, but in the meantime, I will provide a few preliminary shots. I picked up Orange rili shrimp, Carbon rili shrimp, Red rili (a TON of these, expect a sale), more amanos, and some Green babaulti shrimp. I still have in stock Yellow Neos and Red Cherries, as well as...

New order coming in Sunday, Sunday, Sunday!

I am pretty stoked to have a new order coming in this Sunday! I have ordered a bunch of shrimp from a new distributor. I am expecting restock of Amano shrimp (that sale was a big hit and I hope to prolong it), Green shrimp, Orange rilis, Carbon rilis, and Lazurite sakura shrimp. I also ordered more Dario dario, Chili rasboras, Boraras maculatus, Rummynose tetras, Otocinclus, Corydoras pygmaeus, and Kuhli loaches. I hope to do another order...

Amano sale!

Amano sale!

Last week I ‘accidentally’ got in a TON of amanos. My expense is your gain! I need to clear some out, as 150g of amano space in the fish room is a bit nuts! Normally amanos are $2 each. They are on sale for $1.75 each! Get ’em while they are hot, as this price is only good while supplies last! Shipping estimates are based on package weight, so please email for a specific quote. These are young amanos, about 1″ in size....

Working on more pictures, a few to start- sale soon!

Just snapped a couple of shots around the fish room. As I get tanks and glass cleaned, I will update more. I do anticipate having a super sale next week of select species only. I need to make some room for new livestock and raise some cash for some neat stuff. I think I will do a bogo on ember tetras, glowlight rasboras, red-tailed loaches, horned nerites (no specific colors to be picked), and maybe a sale on amano shrimp. I will post up by...

Pictures pictures pictures!

I have been a busy, busy lady! I spoke at the CCA Aquamania Convention in Gaithersburg, MD and also was selling at their marketplace that Sunday. It was an outstanding time! The club really did an excellent job and the turnout was fantastic. I was able to upgrade my camera body after my CCA weekend, and have been spending as much time as I can, between all my travels, taking pictures! I am SUPER happy with the quality from the upgrade, and...

More critters

More critters

  I was trying to get pictures of some of the critters today. I wasn’t overly successful, but here are a few shots regardless. It is very, very difficult to get a shot of the Brevibora dorsiocellata. They are a lovely silver color with a yellow cast and have a dark blotch in their dorsal fin. They also have a very lovely blue lampeye, and are the best schoolers I have ever kept in a fish under 1.5″. The Trigonostigma espei are...
