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...

All caught up and working on restocking!

All caught up and working on restocking!

It has been a doozy of a time with this weather! Things are finally back on track, and I placed a small order this week, as well as one arriving Monday. I am planning a large order for the end of the month, so now is the time to hit me up with special requests for me to consider! I got in a few species that I don’t generally carry, Hyphessobrycon flammeus (Flame tetra), Boraras merah, and Thayeria obliqua (Penguin tetra), as well as...

A few more shots

The Ruby Tetras I got in are some of the nicest I have ever seen- really vibrant and eating well. I also snagged a few shots of some other stuff, and have a lot more work to do. These pics are not as good as usual, but I will shoot more in the upcoming days.  ...

more updates, big fish too!

more updates, big fish too!

I spent the entire day cleaning and doing water changes, so took a few shots from around the fish room. I also moved my cuban gar into the “big boy” tank, so far so good! I have some more shrimp coming in Monday, fingers crossed what I ordered comes in! I am considering restructuring part of my fishroom and clearing out some of my personal fish again, somehow they have a way of creeping up in numbers and I need more tank space!...

Green dragon ancistrus—-oooo pretty!

Green dragon ancistrus—-oooo pretty!

  I just snapped a few pictures around the fish room today. I have restock of Danio margaritatus as well as Sunkist shrimp. I have also added more wild bee shrimp and Super tigers. My plecos are now out of quarantine as well. I have L450s available, green dragon ancistrus, and a couple Hypancistrus contradens. There are L144 babies growing out, and I plan to do several orders in the next few weeks as well to flesh out other areas of my...

More invertebrates shots- CPO heavy!

More invertebrates shots- CPO heavy!

Just grabbed a few shots of invertebrates (and a few fish) around the fish room today. CPO babies everywhere! And they were full of themselves today, showing off, so you get to see a lot of pictures of these fun little crays! They are very sassy, despite their tiny size. Plant, fish, snail, and shrimp safe- they are a colorful and sassy addition to a small peaceful tank. One should make sure there are ample hiding spaces for them after they...

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...

Some more shots from around the fish room.

Some more shots from around the fish room.

I was working hard in the fish room today trying to snap some pictures of shrimp. Let’s just say, my fine tuning with my remote flash leaves a bit to be desired so I will try again on another day. I have a few shots of invertebrates to share, and a couple of fish. I plan on spending a lot of tomorrow taking pictures of more of the livestock available in the fish room right now.        ...

A few more shots featuring Captain Crankypants!

A few more shots featuring Captain Crankypants!

Some of you that know me from forums have already seen Captain Crankypants. He is my wild oscar that I got almost 6 years ago. His personality is, erm, complex (if I am being kind). Yesterday after water changes he was acting relatively cooperative, so I decided to snap a few shots. There are some others, as well, from around the fish room. I plan to do a day long photo shoot in the next week or so to capture shots of some of my other pets....

More invertebrates in stock

More invertebrates in stock

It has been awhile since I got a decent shipment of shrimp and snails in, seems like everytime lately there has been an issue either with availability or quality. I am very happy to report that I have several more species of shrimp and nerite all in stock. It is perfect shipping time of year (in my area) for invertebrates, with priority mailing being perfectly acceptable. I now have in stock again Red rili, Tiger, and Bumble bee shrimp. I have...
