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...

Sale prolonged through the new year, and some shrimp shots

Sale prolonged through the new year, and some shrimp shots

Since the weather took such a nasty turn, and I have not been able to ship, I am prolonging my Holiday incentives ($5 off, $10 off shipping) through the first week of January. This will include my tote and gift certificate give away. I cannot ship until the daytime temperatures are above freezing, and it is supposed to warm up a bit soon. I will be absolutely taking the week before Christmas off from shipping, as there is just too much in the...

Getting ready for Summer travels! Florida is up first- Tampa and Ft. Lauderdale

Getting ready for Summer travels! Florida is up first- Tampa and Ft. Lauderdale

This Summer will be a busy one! I am starting out the season by heading to Tampa to speak at the Tampa Bay Aquarium Society on Monday, June 10. I won’t be taking pre-orders, as it is a pretty loooong drive, but I will be bringing donations for the club. That same week, I will be speaking near Ft. Lauderdale at the Gold Coast Aquarium Society. I am really looking forward to this trip! This week I have gotten in a bunch of new livestock. I...

Green dragon ancistrus—-oooo pretty!

Green dragon ancistrus—-oooo pretty!

  I just snapped a few pictures around the fish room today. I have restock of Danio margaritatus as well as Sunkist shrimp. I have also added more wild bee shrimp and Super tigers. My plecos are now out of quarantine as well. I have L450s available, green dragon ancistrus, and a couple Hypancistrus contradens. There are L144 babies growing out, and I plan to do several orders in the next few weeks as well to flesh out other areas of my...

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...

All the new critters have settled in well!

All the new critters are conditioned and ready to go! I took some feeding pictures (Repashy Soilent Green) from around the fish room today. Clearly everyone was enjoying! The stock list should be up to  date,and I anticipate the arrival of my Peru order (some day, sigh!). I plan to restock my nerites and get some more shrimp variety in the upcoming weeks. Enjoy and Happy New Year!   I will continue to update shots and work on the profiles...

Ahh importing- you fickle fiend! New critters

Ahh importing- you fickle fiend! New critters

As everyone probably knows, I have been desperately trying to get Boraras brigittae back in stock. I have ordered them the past ten weeks or more in a row with no luck. Yesterday, I got my packing lists and was ECSTATIC as I had ordered them from two different sources and BOTH were coming in. Well, long story short, my freight got delayed by over 12 hours because of Christmas freight issues. I had to bribe the air freight worked to even pick up...

More invertebrates in stock

More invertebrates in stock

It has been awhile since I got a decent shipment of shrimp and snails in, seems like everytime lately there has been an issue either with availability or quality. I am very happy to report that I have several more species of shrimp and nerite all in stock. It is perfect shipping time of year (in my area) for invertebrates, with priority mailing being perfectly acceptable. I now have in stock again Red rili, Tiger, and Bumble bee shrimp. I have...
