Anyone have their website.

Thanks
My dad has a spawn of angels in the Villanova ish area, they're still a little small yet, but very nice, golden blondes.

I rarely see them van. I know i have several that are still roaming, but they are young ones. I'm just playing the waiting game. All my parameters are good. The only things i do to the tank are feed and weekly water change. I got smart. No co2 or fertilizers in this tank. I just believe crs hate me.....lol

hmm.. I wonder if that is true. Most who got CRS from me in Nov are reporting berried female so I suspect your should be breeding soon.

Maybe they just don't appreciate my water. The yellows that are in the same tank are breeding no problem.

I'm not too concerned about color so much as healthy and females. They wouldn't be one of my breeding projects. Just some color for the bottom of my 75. I need more red in it

Hey Bill, how are the baby bristlenose? Mine group of them are getting pretty big. I'm sick of the black moscow's that I have in both 40 breeders. I'm selling them all off except for a couple pairs just in case I change my mind. If the little ones I gave you didn't make it, I'll just hook you up with some larger ones in a couple weeks.
