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. I came home inspired to scape! I will be in Silver Spring, MD this Saturday to present a new presentation on breeding fish in containers. 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...

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...

Shipping incentive sale ends Friday, January 3, 2014!

Happy New Year (almost)! My $5 off shipping on any order, or $10 off on livestock purchase of $75 or more ends this Friday! Thanks to all those who have participated! I hope to do an order soon, to get some restock and some new species, but with all the freight delays around the holidays, it has been a trial in patience! I took a few shots from around the fish room that I will share with you, and hope to  spend some more time down there in the...

A new tour of my fish room by Ted Judy!

A new tour of my fish room by Ted Judy!

  Ted Judy stopped by a few months ago and took a video tour of the fish room. I figured I would share it with all of you! Lots of things have changed since then, but it gives you a basic idea. Since then, three more racks have been added and the pvc (for my air system) has been redone. Thanks for the video, Ted! I hope you get to come by again sometime to see all the upgrades!...

Zebra Otos!

Zebra Otos!

We’re so excited to finally have Zebra Otocinclus in stock! These guys are super attractive and interesting in that they have more “teeth” than most in the genus so are easier to feed. They do like to be with friends, so please keep them in groups no less than 6. These guys are a great and striking addition to a South American tank with community fish. If you’re looking for a little more detail on them, check out the...
