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.  ...

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 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...

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...

Enjoy and Happy New Year!   I will continue to update shots and work on the profiles...

Back in action! A few photos!

It has been longer than I would like since I updated the website last. I do apologize! Between the stressors of Super Storm Sandy (luckily we were largely unaffected), the cold snap that followed, multiple fish related travels, and club meetings- I have been SWAMPED! Things have settled down, and I am ordering again. You may have noticed my stock list was a little slim. I am doing much to remedy this! First up, a new order from Peru. The first...
