Like I said, Rummy's are still lil pale atm, but they sure will be beautiful tomorrow And the stock them up to ~10 later on and the Cardinals to ~15 and then add more & more & more other ones too (eventually, step by step)

Yes, the Hemigrammus bleheri will colour up, although they are pretty good now considering how recent they arrived. The Paracheirodon axelrodi seems from the photos to be the Brazilian form of Cardinal rather than the Columbian, and is my particular favourite of the two. Nice goin' Angel.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If youíre going to take it under your wing then youíre responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

These pictures were taken maybe ~1-1.5hrs after arrival (carfully adjusting them temp & water wise in the bag etc etc)

How are the 2 differentiated, by length of the stripe?

I'm trying to work my way there, will take some time (and apparently a LOT time on the Interstate down to GA to get all I want in the end) but it'll get there eventually

The pictures really don't do the Cardinal's justice I have to admit watching them. Their red is more like a real velvet looking red and the blue is just simply extraordinary clear & bright, don't even know how to describe it.

they're so pretty. and i think your pics came out just fine. nice and clear.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Thanks but if you could see my outdoors shots, you'd understand why these pictures are very poor quality IMO...just really gotta find the right setting for the tanks
