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,...

Updates, pictures, and news!

  I am freshly home from the 2015 Aquatic Gardeners Convention, and it was STELLAR. I had a wonderful time both speaking and vending, and enjoyed all the presentations immensely.

The meetings are at JFK High School and the doors open at 1pm. I am planning another order to pick up next weekend, and hope...

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...

Books back in stock, and some shots from around the fish room

Things are going well in the fish room! I had a great time at the All-Aquarium Catfish Convention. Here are some shots from around the fish room.  Some of the hillstream species are beginning to be released from quarantine though the borneo suckers still need more time. I also got in another case of the book I co-authored, and they are available as well. The response from my friends and customers has just been amazing! You guys sure know how to...

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!...
