Sounds great! I'll let you know when I've received the baggies. We're having a cold snap right now and it's been down to the 30's because it snowed 14 inches in the northern part of MN, but our falls tend to swing between 30 and 80 degrees so I'm sure by next week it will be safer to ship.
Oh my gosh you're awesome, thanks :) I have some insulated boxes saved so that's already taken care of. I'm so glad you want these guys, the male especially deserves to be bred. Hopefully I can get a baby from you too ^^
Yes it is :) He's not much to look at right now, he bit his fins to hell when he was shipped to me and to be totally honest I don't know that he'll ever get them back the way they were. The female also has scraggly fins from the first spawning attempt. But I think they'll have lovely babies! And if you still have the mustard gas girl she'd be another option :) I haven't shipped fish before so it may take a while to get them packaged (where the heck do I get watertight bags?).
Hey Mo, are you in need of any breeding stock? I'm starting to realize that wilds are more my thing and I'm considering giving my breeding pair of HM's away to someone who can really appreciate them and maybe show their offspring. I paid a lot for them (over $200 for the male) but I'd be willing to send them to you for the cost of shipping. Let me know.
I had a couple questions about plants. My friend is seetting up a 30 gallon and we are going to buy some live plants for it. The tank is going to have some tetras, platies, and cories in it. Just a basic community. What are the easiest plants to take care of? LOL She has never had her own tank before, so they should be as little extra care as possible.
