Back from my trip:)

So..after the weekend I'm finally back..fish survived the day in a bag and 6 hour drive home the next morning..(Not my ideal plan) but..hopefully it'll work..I'm going to wait the full 48 hours to see for sure..fingers crossed

They had a pretty decent selection, I even found a "teacup" stingray for sale...90 bucks!..I just couldn't do it from all my pre-existing research and how unfair and unliekly it would survive the trip..(Even though in a few months I'll have a 400 gallon) I just really couldn't haha...AHH

So I just settled for a few items that probably aren't as"rare"..but I couldn't even get them here so..I figured, why not:)

1:farlowella
1: reed fish
1:pike cichlid
1:ctenopoha-elopard

They all seem to being faring well in the different tanks I placed them in so..I'm hoping haha I think they're VERY cute:)

thats great news.i kinda have my handsful as we speak.the new stand couldn't be finished in time so no door yet but they're sending it over tomorrow. the tanks due in 2 days and the aro needs to be re-home in another 90 gallon inside my condo.looks like i have a lot of work just like you lol we could just say i shifted in with you no one will ever know joking. oh yeah i found out a great trick so that new gravel tanks wont be murky. it uses 2 hoses one in one out wash gravel in tank till waters clear then remove out pipe and leave the in pipe to fill up the tank.cool huh

They're called a "twig fish" so your boyfriend is somewhat correct My husband calls him "Waldo", as in "Where's Waldo?" the books because he blends in so well with all the plants and driftwood in my tank that he can be impossible to spot sometimes.
