nice bunch of people over there :-D

didn't get anything from the fish store,their choice wasn't great,
the pearl gourami were in a tank that was being treated for something,so none
for sale.
the shop was heaving with people and staff that didn't really know what
they were doing..pets @ home ........
so rather than impulse i walked away

thanks..i walked out with a heavy heart :-(
still never mind...i went to another store today,and walked away with
11 serpae tetra,and 11 guppys....they didn't have any healthy yoyo loaches,
so i didn't get any.there are a couple of roapy looking serpae,but i'm hoping
good conditions,and food will bring them on..here's hoping..

:oops: jealousy ? got the better of me
not the greatest pictures you will ever see..i'm not happy about my lights
or perhaps it's tennis..not sure..i've also painted some paper black and
put it on the back of the tank,and it's changed the colour a little ?
not that there is a FTS..just certain parts..
the Angels are loving the tall plants..i know they're a little raggity in places,but
they should repair with time…the Angels that is..and the rams….quite sweet
if the little one goes off exploring the other one goes looking,and ushers her back
to the rock..

or anything.

I really don't know what a vacation is..my boss tells me I'm just lucky to have a job.lol. They sure look like they go together and what nice color. I've been daring myself to get some gold rams for awhile now, but I need to rehome a bunch of red jewels first. Have a good time wherever you go..didn't you say you were coming to Florida?

Thats s realy nice tank you got there, and thats a pair you got your self the males the one hugging the bottom, a lot darker than the female. With out going with there black spot ŵhats not 100%, just the look and body shape, the way shes close to him tucked away. Feed her well snd they will be spawning in no time, she will look stunning plumped up in her breeding colours.

Willow..Hope you are having fun. I bought a 55 gallon tank other day. It comes complete with a pair of German blue rams, and a pair of Bolivians, nicest tank I own now. When you acclimate I want to know what you feed your rams, and everything. First time I've had rams.:cool:
