Updates and what’s next

Figured I was WAY overdue for a photo update, so here are a few shots from around the fish room.

I am working on building...

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...

Home again! More events coming up and some livestock updates.

I am home from the convention and glad to be! Up next is the NJAS 60th Anniversary show, located in East Brunswick NJ on October 10-13th.

Just a few more pictures from this week’s shipment. Reminder- out of town, so limited shipping in Summer months

Just snapped a few quick shots of some of the new critters around the fish room. So far, everything is looking great! Pricing should be available by the end of the weekend. Just remember, next week is the last week of shipping for a couple weeks as I will be traveling to Florida. Shipping will be sporadic over the summer since I am doing so many speaking engagements. As always, in person pick-ups are always welcome by appointment!    ...
