Only one seemed to be too dizzy to make the trip and I hear they all arrived ALIVE by some miracle. Some of them were still in the container wishing they had a little more water.
Wow! Glad to hear they made it okay! And I thought I was the only one that has gravity as an enemy lol.

Exciting day! My discus has hidden away every time I came to feed him since I got him last saturday. Last night I walked up to the tank and he didn't hide. Then I dropped in some food and he actually swam up to it and ate it right in front of me.

got a call this morn my marine betta came in
time to take a ride to go check him out
the pet shop has him in QT so I can observe him over the next few days
this pet shop cracks me up they never had anyone request a QT to observe a fish for a few days they thought I was a nut
I explained it was so I can observe him eating and to be sure he is not going to kick off as soon as I get him home from hidden problems
the more I talk with them I find they don't really have any ideas on what to do for salt water fish so if I do get this betta it will be the last I purchase from them ..

Got 10 rummy nose tetras today. This is the last of the stocking I had planned for in my 30g tetra tank four months ago. Yea! Now the advanced aquaplant culture learning begins. A whole new adventure! LOL OS.
