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...

New critters doing great!

New critters doing great!

The new critters are largely doing great! The orange otos didn’t import well, but rest assured I will try again in early January! I am STILL shipping, though may not much past this upcoming Monday, as I don’t want boxes to be delayed because of the impending holiday season. That being said, I DO plan on ordering more shrimp, snails, and small fishes soon, so now is the time to let me know what your little heart desires! Here are a...

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...

Getting back on track after a BRUTAL winter!

Getting back on track after a BRUTAL winter!

Well, this winter has been horrendous- snowstorm after snowstorm resulting in delayed freight (death of imported critters) and very few shipping days. Working on getting back on track, and getting more livestock in! If sales of the new stuff go well, I hope to do a Peru import within a few weeks. Then a new shrimp and snail order after that. Here are a few shots from around the fish room today. I will be in Gaithersburg, MD this weekend for...

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 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...
