Yeah, I've read some really horrifying stories about it! I had ONE piece of my Manzanita that started to get a funky fungusy yug on it. I took it out of the tank, and let it dry thoroughly in the sunshine. THEN I sprayed the heck out of it with pure hydrogen peroxide - it bubbled like you wouldn't believe! Boiled it, let it dry in the sun again, and tried peroxide again - no more bubbles! Boiled it ONE MORE TIME to get rid of as much peroxide residue as possible (in small amounts it's okay in the tank), and put it back into the tank. That was MONTHS ago, and I never saw another bloom. . . I don't know if I just got lukcy, or if I actually did something right - but it worked!!! I'm still scared of Mopani though, lol!

I have never used peroxide on wood but that's a thought to remember the next time I have issues.
I generally boil the crap out of the wood ans use a steel wire brush to scrap it with. Sometime it works sometimes not

No, I need to go back to the LFS as I forgot the name of their supplier. LOL I was looking at Threadfin rainbows the other day. Those are pretty fish too!

I am also guessing they can't get the Delicate Blue-eyes since they haven't called me.

Well I had NO luck finding anything today. I only had time to go to go to one store and they had a bunch of nothing!

On a sad note I lost one of my Angels durning the swap as it got stuck between the wall and the heater.
Poor light guy!! THEN I woke up to another Angel that got stuck between a piece of wood and the background. I don't know how he managed to wedge hisself in there but when I got him out he wouldn't swim and was floating upside down! He is still alive and I have him in QT but don't know if he will make it!! So I thinking this swap was a BAD idea!!!!

Threadfin Bows are gorgeous, too - I'm pretty much in love with ALL rainbows, lol! Can't wait to see what you end up with! You could also get a couple of larger fish instead of a shoal, that'd be gorgeous, too. . . there are loads of options there!!! I don't think you really can go wrong here, hon!
