New arrivals from India and Africa
Yesterday was beyond busy. After getting my kids off to school and shipping my orders, it was time to pick up the first set of freight for the day. The first was an Indian shipment which included Microphis deocata, a really neat pipefish. I also got Danionella dracula, Dario dario (bengalensis). At the same time I picked up some new stock of red spot nerites and a variety of horned nerites. Everything came in really well and looks great so far. After dinner and a school board meeting, I drove to pick up the second batch of freight which I had ordered from Zaire. Included in that order were some really cool Chiloglanis catfish, a neat tetra called Neolabias ansorgii, the humming-bird lampeye killi called Apolocheilichthys meyersi (very difficult to photograph, but some really beautiful blue iridescence), as well as butterfly barbs, Barbus hulstaerti. I am really in love with these little barbs. They are super tiny and active and I cannot wait to try them out in a few displays I was really pleased with all of the fish that came in. Also, this week, coming out of quarantine are the regular otocinclus, Corydoras habrosus, and Danio choprae. I will be working on adding profiles and updating my stocklist today and tomorrow to reflect the new availability and new species. I will hopefully be doing a few featured blogs about some of the new fish as well, as most of them are pretty new to me and I look forward to sharing what I am learning. I hope you enjoy the few quick pictures I took of the new additions! All species that I picked up yesterday will be available after a quarantine period of two weeks of health.
