Back from my trip:)
 
So..after the weekend I'm finally back..fish survived the day in a bag and 6 hour drive home the next morning..(Not my ideal plan) but..hopefully it'll work..I'm going to wait the full 48 hours to see for sure..fingers crossed

They had a pretty decent selection, I even found a "teacup" stingray for sale...90 bucks!..I just couldn't do it from all my pre-existing research and how unfair and unliekly it would survive the trip..(Even though in a few months I'll have a 400 gallon) I just really couldn't haha...AHH

So I just settled for a few items that probably aren't as"rare"..but I couldn't even get them here so..I figured, why not:)

1:farlowella
1: reed fish
1:pike cichlid
1:ctenopoha-elopard

They all seem to being faring well in the different tanks I placed them in so..I'm hoping haha I think they're VERY cute:)

havent seen those here i bet they are a welcome sight in any aquarium.ask bryon if you run into any problems with them.i think he's spawned a few weeks back

LisaC144 09-07-2010 09:27 AM

They're called a "twig fish" so your boyfriend is somewhat correct ;-) My husband calls him "Waldo", as in "Where's Waldo?" the books because he blends in so well with all the plants and driftwood in my tank that he can be impossible to spot sometimes.
