New fish and a video
Well last Saterday I received 6 Garra flavatra in the mail. They were suppose to arrive on a Thursday, but USPS was really slow with them. I was worried they were not going to make. They all arrived just fine, only a little cold. They have a 15gal all to themselves. The first picture is the day after they arrived, the second is from today. It will take awhile, but eventually they will look like the one in my sig.
is a video from my 55gal planted tank. I've been meaning to put one together for awhile, but college keeps getting in the way. Its slowly recovering from the crash it had awhile back. I am still want some more GBR. I had 5 when the tank crashed, they were moved out ASAP but were still subjected to some high nitrites for a couple hours. They were fine for a month then started suffering cronic diseases, I've got 1 left currently
. I raised them from babies too. I can't afford adult rams around here they are $14 each from LFS. I managed to snag 8 quater inch fry at an auction for $9 last year and was able to raise them to adults fairly well. Was hoping to do the same thing, but there were very few GBR at the auction this year. I didn't manage to get any. I did get 4 little calico BN plecos which are in the video. The emperor tetras are locally bred fish too.
