BIG snow falls (6-8″ on the ground, another 8-10″ hit last night and today)and frigid temps on the way (around -25F predicted Tuesday/Wednesday). Hopefully it warms up enough for airport to airport shipping soon.

For door to door (USPS) I won’t ship if the lows for the day are below 20F.

Open House (fish room) Event

A HUGE thank you to everyone who turned out to the December open house event. It was a blast to get to see so many people and talk with a few of you. In fact it was so much fun (and forced me to clean up my fish room) that I’d like to do it again!

This time I’ll have a lot more space available because the space for fish room #2 is cleared out. I’ll have some supplies and drygoods available in there as well as some seating, snacks, and beverages.

I hope you can stop by again or for the first time and check out my huge selection of top quality fish and some plants, chat with fellow fish keepers, and get some inspiration for your aquariums.

Phenacogrammus sp.”Fantastique”  

I didn’t understand the hype over this fish.  The fancy name caught my attention but it struck me as just another name game to sell an average African tetra.  But, as often happens, I ordered a few so I could see for myself.  WOW!  That’s all I can say.  After a week in a so so decorated tank these fish are a knock out.  And they are maybe 1/2 grown so they should only get better!  I’ll have to order more of them so I can get a few in my West African display tank.  These guys are worth every penny!  I only have a few on hand.
