Livestock updates!

Livestock updates!

It has been quite a bit since I updated and posted pictures! I have been traveling ALLLLL over speaking at clubs and events, and have had very, very little time home on weekends. I am home for the Summer, except for two trips, so expect a lot of updates and a much fuller stocklist! Coming up soon is the American Cichlid Association Convention in Springfield, Mass. I hope to see some of you there. It is a great time and supports Cichlid...

Updates, pictures, and news!

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...

Shrimp-Why the delays, lady?? Quarantine procedure and treatment protocol

It has been a wonderful evolution within the Shrimp hobby, watching it grow by leaps and bounds and having many exporters offering tons of species for sale. Shrimp only became readily available in the hobby about 10 years ago, and with this rapid growth in overseas farming have come a few issues. Often the shrimp are a bit crowded, with higher organics, which result in a few health issues. I have seen more and more people preaching to buy only...

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...

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...

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...
