Oh no! :( why are you disappointed? :/

Your tank looks nice!!

How come you don't like the angel? He looks pretty! Is it because he was smaller than expected? That's strange that he is mean :( he's too young to already be mean! Haha! In my experience marble varieties tend to be meaner.... Maybe it's just a coincidence.

Well, several reasons, I had to wait for a month to get them due to the holidays and then the weather, back east. That's really no ones fault. Also, these are not the " Exact Fish you will receive " Bait and switch. I lost 2, 1 DOA, an 1 the next day. And a breeder that could really care less. Size, I have purchased a lot of angels, an shipped a lot of angels. NEVER would I ship fish so small.. I personally think the breeder over sold and was sending what ever he could to fill orders.. The fish pictured was the biggest, the rest were half his size. So, I'm a pissed off consumer, an I will dog the breeder at every chance I get.. Good money spend, all around BAD experience..

Wow, that is pretty shady that they would send you different fish....! I'd be ticked off too if they were supposed to be exactly the same. I think small fish can be shipped safely but only if they know what they are doing which apparently this person didn't. :/ well I hope the ones you got grow up to be nice!

Thanks, I guess what really gets me, is the breeders lack of concern. I have had tanks for over 50 years, I was shipping fish 40 years ago. It's a new day and a different world, the $ talks no matter how ya get it..

Gorgeous pictures (it does take skillz!!!) of a lovely tank (more skillz!).
Things seem to be growing in beautifully over there! Thank you for sharing your experiences with this seller, though I'm very sorry to hear that it wasn't so positive. :/
. . . can't wait to see what happens in here next! Keep up the good work, this is shaping up to be an amazing tank!

When you undertake a makeover of this magnitude do you remove all of the fish from the tank or just work around them?
