Before this "shortage", I have always kept them in stock (for teh past three years). I am hoping whatever issue was causing them to be unavailable is solved, cause that was brutal!

I will be taking stock today and getting pics- the shipment was delayed by over 12 hours. I had to bribe the freight workers $50 to get my fish last night. Have I mentioned I find the holidays really annoying for this business!

well, none of them are brigittae (despite me ordering that specific fish from two sources this week). They are boraras though. Kubotai- all dead, sadly. B. dorsiocellata look great. Cherries and amanos look great. Processing some pics to figure out exactly what I have here.

Sigh. Come on small business wish contest grant!
