They tend to look like that when they're caught. They take about a month to fatten up.

I am trying DESPERATELY with the chilis. I now have over 800 fish that are NOT chilis, that I ordered as chilis, that are not selling. It is great....


the honeycombs ate daphnia for me- they will get there

Apparently you are not the only vendor with this issue lately.

In the D.C., Maryland, or NOVA area? Come check out The Greater Washington Aquatic Plants Association! www.gwapa.org

Are they somewhat close? If so, post a pic aor two of what you were sent. I may grab quite a few if of a similar size and nature.

If the only tool you carry is a hammer, everything starts to look like a nail.

How are the O. Cocama and Hypoptoma sp. orange faring? If they make it through QT okay I'm considering placing an order. Approximately how much for shipping do your orders to the Los Angeles area run? (probably nothing to sneeze at given the distance, but your per-fish prices are better than other options I've seen)

They are doing ok, I don't have many of either as their trip was a rough one. Once in my posession, I have not lost any past the first day, but about 2/3 were lost in transit from Peru to Lima, and from Lima to NYC. I am *supposed* to be having replacements sent, but we all know how long it took me to get these, so I am not holding my breath.

As for shipping, I would cost it would be $25-35 for overnight to your area, or, if the weather is mild (which it is NOT here right now, single digits), 2nd day is available for less than $20. Second day is only a viable option when weather is good on both sides though, and we are having a crazy cold snap.

Sigh. I love rasboras, but they always jump. :/ Might be time to actually break out that ADA glass cover I paid for....hm.

Also, I MUST have those tri-color horned nerites. They're gorgeous.

I have to agree with you!

I like creepy things, vines included.
