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

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...

Black kuhli loach

Black kuhli loach

I got in Black kuhli loaches (Pangio oblonga) this week, and they are squirmy and adorable as all little loaches are! Great in groups with small, peaceful fish- they make an active and exciting addition to a tank.   This video shows their behavior when in HUGE numbers. They prefer a sand substrate, which they will actively burrow into, coming out en masse at feeding time to swarm live or frozen foods, though they readily accept dried...

Shipping incentive sale ends Friday, January 3, 2014!

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 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

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...

Working on more pictures, a few to start- sale soon!

Just snapped a couple of shots around the fish room. As I get tanks and glass cleaned, I will update more. I do anticipate having a super sale next week of select species only. I need to make some room for new livestock and raise some cash for some neat stuff. I think I will do a bogo on ember tetras, glowlight rasboras, red-tailed loaches, horned nerites (no specific colors to be picked), and maybe a sale on amano shrimp. I will post up by...

Some new livestock and some fish updates

Things have been busy, busy, busy- as always! I picked up some new critters this week, and still have some new guys left to photograph in the next day or so as they settle in. Added to the fish room this week are Microdevario kubotai, Sawbwa resplendens, Nannostomus eques, Hemigrammus bleheri, Panaqolus maccus, and some restock of a few things. I am also getting ready to set up my breeding bins in the yard, so snapped a few picture of some of...

Heading to Connecticut this week! Pre-orders being taken through Wednesday evening

Hi guys! Just figured I would put up a few pictures of some of the newer livestock. I got in Stiphodon percnopterygionus, both sexes, and they look great! These pictures were taken within a day or two of them being added to the tank, and you can already see some of the range of colors they will eventually show. I am getting ready to head to the NEC Convention in Cromwell, CT. I will be leaving Thursday and home Sunday night. I am now taking...

The remote flash survived its underwater adventure- more pics!

The remote flash survived its underwater adventure- more pics!

As some of you may know, I dropped my remote flash into a tank (for the second time) a week or two ago. These are pricey pieces of equipment which are, unfortunately, vital for me to be able to get pictures of my critters. As soon as it happened, I quickly popped the batteries out and took a hairdryer on low heat to it. After it appeared dry, I put it into a bag of dry rice for a week. When I attempted to turn it on, all the electronics worked,...
