A couple new critters added today- CPO, ADF, and more

Picked up a small order today of some critters I have not carried in awhile. Some of you know that I really got interested in invertebrates because I used to raise African Dwarf Frogs and was looking for appropriate tankmates. It peaked my interest in snails and shrimp and has just grown from there. I had stopped keeping ADF’s after one of the one’s I added to my tank came in with chytrid and it wiped out my entire colony. I just ordered some new ones  today for the first time in seven years and am very excited to carry these little clowns. I also got some more Cambarellus dwarf crays. They came in very well and within minutes of being added to the tank were staking out territories and exhibiting nice bright orange coloration. I also got in more Bumble bee shrimp. They are a range of red and white, brown and white, black and white, and blue and white. They are all adults, many of the females being berried. They came in beautifully as well and will be available next week. The only fish I got in this week is Longfinned White Clouds. I love this fish as it is fantastic for outdoor summer bin/pond projects. They get very vibrant, long yellow fins and a rich red body. The one I have pictured is still young and had just been added to the tank. I will get more pictures as everything settles in, but wanted to share what I got so far.
