Teaser shot of the Maculatus:

Since it will be the end of the day when they go to my aquarium, and since they have been in a box for a while I went ahead and put them in a bucket with a live plant.

Rather than acclimate them to a tank here, then re-acclimate them again with three different scenary changes in a day, I simply drip acclimated in some planted tank water from the 60-P at ADG, which is of similar quality to that of the water in my home.

They've been happily swimming about in circles and have colored up a bit.

Not a single casualty so far.
