Al, tomorrow (monday) is fine....I am off of work tomorrow so I can swing by Times Square anytime of the day. What time would be best for you?

Pearling.....it's way overrated.

Sundadanio axelrodi

They come in a few color "types" including the blue that was at Pacific and a nice red color

Hey man, did the shrimp color up yet? I tried to get a good mix of male - female. Around half of them should be all red.

Aaahhhh....no more from you Oz! I stopped at a store this morning to buy a piece of driftwood for the coffeefolia I got from Gordon yesterday, and almost bought some fish. With all that conversation yesterday, I have that itch to buy more fish. It's all your fault.....hahaha.

Yeah! They were white last night but when I woke up this morning and checked them out most of them had some nice deep red to them. Nice sizes too! I'm about to leave feedback haha...

Awesome! I was worried because it was pretty cold yesterday. I had heat packs in there, but still worried about it.

The females will double in size. You should try and check some of them out a little closer. I know I had seen some that were saddled.

I had a great time for my first NYC Swapmeet! It was a pretty big turnout IMO.

Btw, those Sundadanio axelrodi 'blue' that they had at Pacific were pretty awesome. I wish I had the space for them!

Thanks for hosting, acitydweller!

Its my pleasure all. btw, im going to leave postive feedback for those whom i traded with and would encourage everyone to do it for each other. Its not mandatory but something nice to do. I had 100% success rate with all live stock and with all the deliveries made. What a great swap it was.

I didnt realize how much buzz we caused at wholefoods. but then again, the place was buzzing before we got there... It truly was the perfect spot to meet.

Yeah, there definitely was a buzz there. When I met up with eeng and furnfins, we were hanging out in the back. eeng was whipped out a baggie of fissidens, and people were looking at us like we were dealing "something else".....hahaha. I will deifintely leave everyone feedback.

Glad to hear the endlers are ok Albert. I was super worried because of the cold. I had heatpacks in my backback, but i was still paranoid. Definitely keep me posted on how they do.

You should have seen some of the looks people were giving us in the back when everyone was swapping their stuff, lol, it was very funny watching the looks on peoples face Glad I was able to make it and meet some new people.

Just left feedback for everyone I traded with....hopefully some of can do the same. I also sent out some friend requests (still have a few more of those to go). Not sure how much that really means on this website, but hopefully you guys accept.

Just wanted to show you guys what my tank looks like now....special thanks to those who brought plants for me. I pretty much re-scaped the left side of the tank, the piece of driftwood towards the front being new. I bought that for the coffeefolia. I can't wait till everything grows in. And Albert, those hygros....I can see them growing in already! You weren't kidding when you said I would have bushes in no time!

Let me know what you guys think!
