I really want some roselines (denison barbs) but it depends how much they are and I will only take them if when they come in they are left in their shipping bag. I hate for fish to come in, go from bag to tank and a few hours later go back into another bag to eventually end up in my tank. LMK what you can get them for.
Oh I would also really like some panda cories, but I want adults. Last time justin ordered them for me he got a bunch of babies and they didn't make it. I think they were to small to be shipped.

ok, I will look into that for you. I do know that Caroline at Pet palace told me that she could get hem for like 4.99 or 5.99 each depending on how many are ordered. More than 6 I think you get a better price, though she also told me that they get as large as the peppered that I have. I wanted dwarf sized ones so I passed on that. Have you seen the longfin ones? They are pretty cool looking. I might have to get some at the same time as you, the cories that is. I will ask about the roselines.. Will keep you posted

That's about average for the pandas. I might put an order in after I get the rest of my hunting gear. Season opens Sept. 21 so I got some more gear that comes before the fish lol. I do like the long fins, I like the long fin BN too. I will let you know when I'm ready to put my order in. I am all about a group buy. More savings. Thank you.

So it looks like the 15g rili tank will not be going back to the classroom. My wife said she would rather have a planted tank with fish as they are easier to see then shrimp. So I am going to keep the 15g as I would like to keep a shrimp tank at the house anyway.
Now instead I am going to take the 20L into the school for her. The blue pearls seem to all have disappeared for whatever reason. Currently the tank only houses 3 amano shrimp which will be moved in with the rilis and a few ottos which will stay. The tank has a piece of mantazita with java moss, a small crypt and a couple stems of L. aromatica sp? What do you guys think would be a good couple species of fish to put in that would be active, colorful, stay small and not reproduce like crazy like guppies or mollys would?

Stay small you say? Well there are almost all of the fish that Msjinkzed sells, the CPD's are beautiful and active, the chili rasboras are another good one, though they may stay too small for those kids to see. Why not Rasboras Hets or Neons? Glo Tetra? We have some smaller species fish at the store. I had Justin call in those that you are looking for, but he did not get a call back yet, I will check again with him. If you do come in Friday, I can show you ones that I think will be good for a smaller tank, that school and I can tell you if the tank has been medicated recently. White Cloud minnows would be good too I think

check out rachel's stocklist and if you want to get somethign from her, which I recommend cause she has great stock, I might join you in that and we can split the shipping. 35.00 is a lot to pay for shipping and we could half that and it would be much more reasonable. If Bobby were to want something as well, that would be even better!

Therese, thanks for the links I have been doing a lot of reading on those and links inside them. Also I like the rasbora het. I picked up 5 of them for my sons tank, now I think I will pick up a large school of them for my 125g and eventually some for her classroom tank.

To all here. If you are wanting a tank I have a few to give out. I have for certain a 5 gallon, a 10 gallon, and then I've got a goofy looking tank. I really like it, I didn't measure it, but it's approx 48L 12H 12W but it's got glass dividers. So essentially it's 4 small tanks. I'd like to use it but I have no where to put it. I'm pretty sure there are a couple more. I will know more this weekend when I go clean this house out.
Oh yeah there is another one that is 30H 247/8H 18W. That I think would make an awesome terreium (I can't spell today).

I'd like to get that 5 gallon from you, if you haven't found ahome for it yet. I traded a 10 for a 5 a few weeks ago but clumsy me somehow broke some glass so I tossed it. Thanks!

Whenever works best for you. If you'd like come get it this evening. With all luck I will be in the garage cleaning the tanks out and getting them ready for whatever ends up happening to them.
As for BPS we didn't make it. By the time I got back home and we got on the road we were gonna be left with less than an hour so we just decided to go next weekend after work when theres more time. I did make it back to the gun store again Sunday to spend more money lol.

HAHA, that's funny. They need to do something special for you with all of that money you just gave that store!

If this evening, what time range works? I will be at the LFS until 4 and then who knows but I imagine cooking dinner falls in there somewhere. I could come after that when you think you will be home

I haven't spent as much as a lot of my friends have recently, the joy of not having a wife and kids I guess.
This evening I should be home around 515-520 and should be there till around 715 when Lindsay gets home and then were all leaving for about an hour or so.
