they are young but colored up nicely - red/blue bodies, yellow trim on the fins of the male I grabbed. No yellow bellies on the females yet.
How small are the peacock gudgeons? I'm interested in obtaining a pair of these but I want to ensure they won't be snacks for the existing population (3" tetras, 2" blue rams).

Do you guys have any crabs? Or any other semi-or non-aquatic stuff?

Lots of reptiles and I think there are some amphibians as well.
No crabs at the moment.

When are you getting some rhino gobies?

Patience once drove a man insane

Thanks for your time

They've been pricey. Rhinogobius candidanus has been available but would retail around $35 ea, 2 for $60.
I haven't seen R. duospilus (R. wui) listed lately.
I love gobies, so I will try to get some when the price is reasonable.

We've got an order going in with a new vendor this week, hoping to find some nice gems (including jumbo blue rams and nice big cory cats).
They also carry plants so I'm ordering some staples (and tiger lotus) to fill in the plant table tanks a bit:

Crypt. wendtii (green)
Cardamine lyrata
Rotala indica
Bacopa caroliniana
Aponogeton longiplumulosus
Nymphaea zenkeri


Prices look reasonable. We still have lots of Val in stock, nice red dwarf lilies, tropica swords, and our remaining crypt spiralis has been sending up nice red/bronze leaves in the high-light tank.
