I was!!!
And they are home now!!!!
I drove like 10mph home and super carefully, they've shied up though on way. Got a quick pic though to add of them floating on the tank. Haven't stated adding water yet!
God I'm excited!
Cool bit was I got to speak to the guy who supplies them from Singapore too. The shop owner was there and he gave him a ring for me! Was chatting about habitat, numbers, breeding etc. Cool guy!

Congrats Niles! I am excited for you and a bit jealous. I am looking forward to seeing the pictures of them swimming freely in their new home. It is really awesome that you got to talk to the breeder.

it was! He goes to collect them from the wild too.......we ended up chatting about quite a few wild fish he travels the world to collect as well. He did make me be naughty though and get more than i was going to!!!

They are finally in the tank now!!!

Grouped together at first but starting to have a nice explore now!

Thanks Andarial - i love the scape too, but it may/may not work out. If not the ill probably go with loads of cryptocoryne beckettii planted torughoput the tank, mixed thorugh with elodea and vallisneria gigantea going up one side and over half the top. The vallisneria gigantea will be in store tomorrow and so thats going in the tank no matter what though!

Oh im SO happy right now with my baby puffers

However my fail has led to one good thing. Pictures! Plus it's not bothering them - they are just happy playing with their reflections right now!
