Here is a quote from the regional section I posted late last night...
"GREAT fun day!
I ended up volunteering (getting volunteered because no one came to take over ) for a job which kept me busy the whole time but gave me enough flexibility to run around and check and buy some things too!
At the end there was crazy cheap deals. I got vinegar eel culture for $1. big bag of Wisteria plants for $1. Bag of frag plugs all assorted sizes and types for $1.
3 Bags of Fluval gravel 1 bag of stones new in bag for $0.80 each!!! (14.99 retail each)
Friend picked up Blue Green Rili shrimp 6 for $12.00.
The awesome cool thing I got was a trio of young Blue Gularis Killifish. Really amazing color. My head is spinning how awesome these fish will look. Woot, woot! look up google "Blue Gularis Killifish Sumer" and you will see a (excellent photo by Sumer) example of the breeding group. So happy about them!
ok, and if you are already kicking yourself for not coming...there was a 55G tank went for under 20. A 20G complete with nice gravel for $15. And a 125G that was around the same. Yes I said 125G...OMGG! I was busy doing something and missed the exact price, but they started those bids at $1. "
Theresa, don't know about yours but our auction was awesome!!!
Some highlights were the same Gularis only a pair went for $8. I wanted to get them but only had a small budget.
Red Millennium Rainbow s 4 went for $8 (not mine though I am getting some probably Wed or Friday from a local breeder)
Friend got me an awesome shelf SW
stone for the new larger SW
I will eventually get to and a pretty frag of Blue Zoas -sw
and 2 Mangrove shoots about 7" for $3 for both
2 acrylic frag holders for $5
A huge surprise last night was a tiny pea sized golden orange marble with a little stripe baby fw
Angelfish which was in the bag with the Wisteria plants!!!!! It has great finnage for such a tiny little one. I am gonna check who the seller was and find out what kind it is at the next meeting.
I Am really taken with this very tiny beauty. Hoping I can make sure to feed it properly. I have fry food and BBS and now vinegar eels so I am hoping to spot feed with a turkey baster. It already comes over to the front of the tank to look at me too, lol. I have a new favorite.
will try to get a pic
Cleaned out some rotting moss in my AquaFarm (plants and snails). It got stuck under the sand, ewww yuck.
Moved the Betta out of the 16G just in case he wanted to be mean to the Killi and tiny Angel. He looked at the Killis But didn't chase them or attack, but just to be sure if he got bored with nothing else to do and put him into the 3G AF.
The AF tank is topless and unfiltered but heated and was with snails and plants, so I am thinking of moving it near my chair and plunking in my tiny intank filter which is sitting in the 16G to stay cycled, for just such an occasion.
Moved about 10 various size pond snails over to the bowl with the Assassin snail. Still not sure what to do with him.
Was given about 8-10 Blue leg Hermits - sw
, and offered them a handful of new shells and watched them in the bag doing new home searches, lol, and had the best time seeing them turning the shells over and stick their heads inside them. Within an hour of putting them into the tank there was at least 1 possibly 2 which already switched shells!!!
Was up till 3am reading up on vinegar eels and other assorted things!
Fed all fish a nice assortment of foods.
Both pair of Angels spawned and pair #2 eggs were disappeared by the next day and pair #1 was a second time in a row mess of unfertilized eggs and few good ones and then gone the next day. Thinking the male is being distracted by the other male and not doing his job very well.
Why can't everyday be such a fun fish day!!!
