actually...funny story. I bought some salvinia...you know...the floating plant. And I dunno how it happened, but the guy was like "yea yea...it's $5 a pinch." And I was like "a pinch?"...and he was like "yea, don't worry I got big hands." I laughed and said, "okay yea, gimme a pinch of salvinia."

When I got home and looked at the bag with the floating plants, I noticed two pencilfish were in the bag with the plants. His big hands musta scooped rather than pinched, because there were two of em in the bag. He took them from a stocked tank. I put them in quarantine for like 3 weeks not knowing what to do with them. Eventually I put them in my 20 gallon and gulp, my marble angel ate one within the first minute. So dissappointing. The other was eaten overnight I am sure...he did not make it til morning that's for sure. Had they only been a little bigger, they mighta had a chance. I really liked them though. Very pretty fish.

I've never seen them school (which is supposed to be really awesome), but shipping costs from online sites kind of ruins it for me. 50$ to ship 12 fish, which cost less than the shipping. That's why I opted for a school of neons in my 29. (the females are starting to get that "whalish" look)
