Back in action, an apology, and a stock list

A sincere apology to the Planted Tank Family-
My family has been going through some seriously bad health issues in the past many months, my husband having to have 6 surgeries this summer alone, including a transplant. He was released for work last week, and is back to full time this week- for the first time since early April. Needless to say, because he was very unwell, I had to take a step back from my work (other than writing for the magazine) and take care of my family. I have been building up my stocklist over the past few weeks, and am ready to start getting back into action! I have some pictures and updates on my website, and will take more tomorrow.
Here is the current stock list as of today, 8/27/14.
Email is always best to reach me, as I am often mobile and hate using my phone to access pm's. My direct email is msjinkzd@gmail.com

Didn't know that glad to hear he's doing better. I always wanted to try green neons but I'm overstocked with neons.

Glad to see you back. Good luck to your family.


Those pygmy hatchets are intriguing. How badly do they jump?

Glad to hear things getting a little better. I read about some of the stuff that was going on and it definitely sounded like a very rough time.

Anyways...I'm looking for some Super Tigers again. I got them from you before and they were great....just wondering if you had any hiding in your tanks or planned to get more. Also, some ottos would be awesome too.

No, they are wild (but quarantined)

On the website. My remote flash took a little dive yesterday while I was photographing for an article :/ hopefully it will be dried out enough today or tomorrow to get some photography done. They are selling FAST. I will get more soon.

Thanks for the kind words, this has been one of the worst times in my family's life. I would love ot get super tigers again, just haven't seen them on my lists (and I had not ordered since April, so will keep looking). Otos are in qt, they get a very prolonged qt and should be available in a week.

I'll keep your family in my prayers. I know first hand what it's like to have a catastrophic accident/illness hit your family.

thank you! My husband has about a 10% chance of not having severe issues again, unfortunately. We are at least now aware of what to expect, this was all very surprsiing and pretty much crippling to our household. It has been an extremely rough 4 months (almost to the day). He has surgery again in 2-3 months, and that will really be the tell all.

Yeah I saw the rosy's but I wouldn't think they would mix well with the 7 Dwarf Hovering I have. Those things shadow and pester my big blue gourami, I wouldn't want them to stress the rosy's out.
