Pictures:

Pic 1 - Opening the box, There was a styrofoam lid we took off already.
Pic 2 - Java Moss and Christmas moss portions. I was not pleased with the size of the portions. It was supposed to be 4 oz per but it seems like there was only half that. Even with a free Christmas Moss it wasn't worth it.
Pic 3 - 1x Auloncara Baenshi. Should be a male. This is for another hobbyist.
Pic 4 - 8 Guppy Males. We ordered 6 so got 2 free.. sadly one was DOA.
Pic 5 - 3x Auloncara Gertrudae We only ordered 2 but got 3. Pleasant surprise lol.
Pic 6 - 2x Blue ram. They are smaller then expected so are currently sitting in the guppy tank while we sort things out.
Pic 7 - 1x Pimelodus Blochi. It's somewhere around 8" long. Very nice fish.
Pic 8 - 27x Female Guppy. Ordered 24 got a few extra :)
Pic 9 - 1x Hygrophilia Corymbosa "Kompact" and 1x Anubias Coffeefolia. Both were smaller then expected. We wondered why he had charged us a dollar less on each :)
Pic 10 - 5x E. Uruaygensis.
Pic 11 - Eheim Jager 200w heater. Fully Submersible. Hurray!!
Pic 12 - Issues 1, 2 and 3 of Amazonas. Next one will be out late June or so.
Pic 13 and 14 - Close ups of Pimelodus Blochii.
Pic 15 - Showing the roots of the plants
Pic 16 - The 2 rams out in the tank.

Awesome thread, I think some negative people should just mind there own business and remember what mom said, "if you cant say something nice then dont say anything at all".

people talk about how we should make our tanks natural for the fish, when in reality most of the fish we get are from farms and never spent a day in their lives in the Wild. Nothing wrong with some plastic plants or the "old fashioned heaters" as long as they work thats what counts, many fish are known jumpers and water levels shouldnt be that high anyway, air space is good under the hood.

I think your tanks look fine with all the decos you have, people need to remember certain fish like hiding spots over swimming room and some dont do well with live plants. keep up the pics I'm enjoying this, and I'm jealous of your supplier, let him know if he ever ships to U.S. he could make a killing.

I dont mind the "negativity". People are just trying to help in their own way. It is why I posted this in the first place is to get peoples thoughts, good and bad. Also the internet can make something seem more abrasive then it was meant to be, as text isn't great at conveying emotion.

Thanks alot for your comments Hanky :)

Yeah click on the aquariums tab under my name to see the tanks. You can click on each tank to see more pictures. I haven't posted anything since the previous shipment though so they are about 2 weeks out of date.

If you have any specific requests I'll be happy to take more pictures.
