Wow! Great deals! And both really cool types of fish. Is your 120 ready for them, or are they in your other tank awhile?

Pics please!!

6 clown loaches, from everything I have heard, will be very entertaining to watch! Such neat fish. Every time my son sees them on the monitor he says "I wanna put in my fish tank downstairs". Which is a lot of words for him to string together. He crawled and walked early, but was very late starting to talk.

Were those sale prices? Or is PJs always that cheap?

Purolator just updated the tracking info on my equipment. It's in Toronto. Hopefully it can get sorted, sent to Ottawa, sorted again and to my house by tomorrow.

Probably wishful thinking, lol. Darn weekends. I don't want to have to wait until Monday.

Is that company in Orillia? What a Rip. Thank goodness the shipping you said was free considering the route it is taking! Orillia to Toronto to Ottawa to your house. Sheesh.
Sometimes I feel like I've been taken hostage when we are at the mercy of the shipping companies.
Things travel the countryside more than we humans do!
Don't you hate these exercises in patience? Sigh...

There's still a chance it will be here sometime tomorrow, as long as it gets on the road tonight.

Then I have to go out and get substrate.

My landlord lives in the duplex next to me, I e-mailed him to see if he had shims, which he does. He's a handy guy. He's out of town until tomorrow so I should have the tank leveled tomorrow or Saturday.

It's actually dead on level across the front, left to right. It's just slightly off front to back. The front needs to come up a little on both corners.

My last order from pets and ponds I got in one day. The fish that I got that was the regular price not sure if they were priced wrong because the other PJs in Pickerring the Fish were more money.

Well, it made it to the Ottawa Depot an hour ago. So I would assume it will definitely be here sometime today! Woo hoo.

On an unrelated note, before I went to bed last night, I threw a 10 pound roast, potatoes and carrots in the slow cooker and I just woke up to a great smelling house.

Gotta love the slow cooker, working while you sleep. ;)
