What were you keeping some of your Cory's with Menagerie? It was really hard to judge all of them. The biggest reason yours lost points was they were showing some fin nippage/damage.

Great presentation though! Covered some similar thoughts I had when we moved from our condo to house, but we didnt have to go into as much thought as the fish went into buckets for the 20 minute drive.

I would love to, but unfortunately the last few meetings I've had to go to work right after the meeting, with no time to go home and redeposit fish into their tanks.

Hopefully, I'll manage with the next meeting, unless the schedule changes. I've got some nice pieces of aquatic plants attached to driftwood that might do well.

Yeah great presentation!

I picked up 2 rocks and a house plant hehe...

And Toirtis almost talked me into bidding on a Brichardi.. I would have but I have a happy couple breeding like mad and didn't want to mix them up with a new male at this time.. I am pretty sure they would have just ripped the new guy up.

And I reconized KaiserFish (he looks kinda like his avitar)

I knew that would happen, but since we sold our extra tanks, there was no where to put some juvie zebras and brichardi. Today I pulled them out and put them where they belong and made sure to disrupt territories in the 80 gal. BTW~good judging last night. You and Wlad were very thorough. Honestly, I bring fish because I like showing them off and no one else does. If I were to actually win, I might faint!

Hey Toirtis,

Can you share what eggs you are currently hatching? Tips? Tricks? All of them spoken for? Where did you get them? Pics of the adults?

N. rachovii and N. eggersii....all still sitting in little jars at the moment...I will probably hatch them out in late May. No pics of the parents, but I will link to pics of both species. As far as 'spoken for', I have no idea just how many fry I will get, but I will keep you in mind if I have extras.

N. rachovii:
