Some fish updates

Some fish updates

Whew, winter is not kind! Sickness, computer issues, death, snow, freezing temperatures! That being said, I am working on building up the ole stocklist, and am traveling a ton in the upcoming weeks. Here are a couple fish pics from around the fishroom, some of which will be coming out of quarantine next week. I plan on starting to restock more shrimp (been focusing on breeding my own, only) as well as some more asian species including...

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...

Pictures pictures pictures!

Pictures pictures pictures!

Hey guys! Finally had some time to spend in the fish room snapping some shots. Those espei pencils are AMAZING!! I have a small order coming in Monday, mainly shrimp, and plan to order some more darios, some puffers, and a few types of loaches at some point soon. Now is the time if you have a special request to make it! In the meantime, I am doing a sale for shipping next week. PLEASE NOTE- a winter storm is coming. Right now, it looks like I...

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.  ...

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!

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...

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...

Restock of some favorites! Espei rasbora, dwarf cories, bumble shrimp and nerites

Picked up my fish order today, which is largely restocking a lot of my favorite creatures. I still have over a dozen empty tanks, so plan to add some more small oddballs, including gobies and more shrimp, in the upcoming weeks.   Today I got in more T. espei (they are quite young), Bumble bee shrimp, Bumble bee nerites, Micro crabs, Corydoras pygmaeus and habrosus, and again, tried for B. brigittae but ended up with B. uropthalmoides. sigh...

Your daily dose of pictures!

Your daily dose of pictures!

Well, some of you may have read of the most recent fish room foible- I dropped my remote flash into a tank. Absolute brilliance, you gasp. Yea, I know. Right now it is happily residing in a large bag of rice, but I am not hopeful that it will work. Regardless of this set back (psst, now would be a great time to make an order so I can purchase a new remote flash), I decided to try and shoot some pictures around the room anyway. I did not get...
