Ooooh! Those are stunning! I hope you can find what you're looking for - that'll be a gorgeous tank for sure! I second the recommendation for The Wet Spot Tropical fish - they're an awesome store in Oregon, and where I got my JellyBean Tetra from. They have a TON of hard-to-find and wild-caught fish, and my experience with them has been nothing but stellar. I've also seen reviews and heard from other customers who highly recommend them. Check their website - their stocking list changes and is updated weekly :)

If you can't find the Blue-eyes Celebs are actually fairly common, I'm betting that your LFS can order them if they don't have them already :)

Good luck, man!

I think I might work on transfer everything over this weekend if I manage to get a day off. I also plan on calling my LFS when they open to see what he can get. He doesn't open the store till 3pm cause he has another job and has the store as more of a hobby. I might run up instead dunno LoL

Ohhhh just remembered another fish store that's about a hour or so away from me that had Rainbows that I had never seen before at the time. I can't remember what they were called now but remember the stores name. I might try them as well.

Ooooh!!! This is getting exciting! I can't wait to see what you come up with to put in there - and how you rock the whole tank. What are the chances that you really WILL get a day off this weekend!?

Jes probably slim to none! LoL Right now our schedule is showing no production for Sunday Sooo am crossing my fingers it doesn't change!!

I went by the LFS to see bout the Delicate Blue-eyes and the one supplier they use doesn't have them!! The worker said he would talk to the owner cause they are about to start using new suppliers. Soo they are suppose to call me and let me know. They did have 1 Celebes Rainbow there but only one little fish. They wanted $9 for it!!
I also checked on Celebes Halfbeaks and the supplier was out of them.

The one downside to the background is that I have to remove the top brace of the tank to get it inside the tank. So the rim has to be resealed which isn't a big deal but needs to be dry before I can fill the tank up with water or else the background will float up and push the rim off. This has been my hold up and why I haven't done the swap yet.
