Pencils, Amano shrimp, and Chili Rasboras back in stock!

Pencils, Amano shrimp, and Chili Rasboras back in stock!

After many months of struggling to have Amanos in stock consistently, and to get a decent quantity of REAL Boraras brigittae, they are both back in stock! We have lots of nice fish in the fish room right now, as well as many young home bred shrimp. I am getting ready to head to Ontario for the C.A.O.A.C. Annual Convention, so shipping is only on Monday of this week. Since I will be out of the country, responses may be delayed to inquiries,...

Stock list is filling out! BEAUTIFUL nerites and lots of little fishes back in stock!

FINALLY, after the brutally cold and snowy winter, the fish room is getting restocked in a major way! I just got a bunch of neat little fish, and am ordering shrimp and gobies to pick up next weekend. As always, items need to go through a quarantine period before becoming available for sale, but I have listed the projected prices for planning purposes. This upcoming weekend I will be in CT for the NEC Convention. I will be bringing my book, as...

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...

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...

Photo updates

I will be working, the next couple of days, on updating all my species profiles to include the new livestock. It is a fish heavy stock list right  now, but I hope to do an invertebrate import soon. Next up, and the last event for my year, is the OCA in Ohio. I will be taking pre-orders and most likely selling some stuff out of my room. Otocinclus cocama will likely not become available, they came in rough and are doing poorly. The rest of 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.  ...

Heading to CCA this weekend! Just back from JSAS- MFK Konvention next!

I have been busy, busy, busy! I was just in Freehold, NJ to speak to the JSAS. What a great group! I had a ton of fun. This weekend I am heading to the greater DC area for my club, Capital Cichlid Association, monthly meeting. Mike Hellweg is speaking on breeding and I really looking forward to hanging out with the gang! Next weekend is the MFK Konvention, the first of its kind and it has a killer speaker line-up (myself included). I am taking...

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...

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...

Here are a few quick shots from the fish room today. I plan to spend a fair amount of time photographing this week, as well as updating species profiles for reclassifications, and making new ones for new species. I hope you enjoy...

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...
