A day of shopping...
soo....we just got home from a day full of stores that is!! I have been wanting to convert my molly tank into a guppy tank for quite some time...a friend of mine took all my mollies...left me with a BN pleco, 2 neon tetras, an apple snail, and 3 albino cory cats....i came home with 6 male fancy tail guppies, 5 more neon tetras, a blue mystery snail, and 2 more albino cory cats...for stocking our 250 and 160 gallon tanks we came home with a fire eel and the prettiest red/tiger oscar i have ever seen!! my brother in-law also went with us and got a baby black ghost knife...against my word of advice....but all in all i am VERY pleased with my fishies!!:-D

I went fish shopping too, came home with nothing. Plenty that I wanted but I have to wait until I set up a new tank. I've been on craigslist daily, actually went and saw a tank yesterday and today, so far no luck. I'll keep trying. Congrat to you all on your new additions.

that is so strange! we all went shopping!?:lol:
i did too!!
i came home with 9 black neon tetras (29g with puffers), and 6 inch and a half Japonica shrimps(5.5g alone. getting new filter today to upgrade) ((6 that are 1.5 inches, not 6 and a half inches! thatd be insane!!)

my fiance came home with: (to my advice not to yet):roll: (ther're in the 20g just set up just for them)
2 kenyi cichlids (1 male 1 female) Metriaclima lombardoi
1 Lithochromis rubripinnis AKA Blue Pseudonigricans
1 Labidochromis Hongi (hongi Island)

they seem to like eachother. the kenyi male (yellow w eggspots on anal fin) did the "shimmy" next to the girl kenyi (blue, no eggspots).
I was like WHAT!? :shock:
they're still babies and already trying to figure out how to spawn!!:rofl:

I looked at a 180gl yesterday and tonight I'm looking at a 220gl. The 180 had crap for filtration. I found a really nice 65 but it won't come close to solving my problems. When I stocked my 100 I knew the day was going to come for something bigger and that day is quickly approaching, LOL.

Like Angel requests, pics of all the new fish, please. :-)
