Apistos, Danio Choprae, Boraras merah

I ordered a pair of Apistogramma nijsseni for my 40g, 12 Danio choprae for my 29g, and 10 Boraras merah for the 20 long. It was a pretty good day!

A few of the Boraras were DOA and 1 doesn't look so hot. Hopefully with some clean water and TLC the rest will be ok.

I actually received 11 Danio choprae and what looks to be 1 Zebra Danio, though it looks a little shinier than the ones I've had in the past. Oh well....its a misfit.

Now for pics! I don't have any pics of the Boraras....they were all hiding.

From left to right, top to bottom....female nijsseni, male nijsseni (aren't they the cutest!), Danio choprae, the 29g so you can see all the Danios. They were too busy to get more pics of.

Haha...yep!

I got these from Wetspotcx....that is their Aquabid seller name, but I just emailed the guy what I wanted.

I have to order my fish online from websites or sellers to get the less common stuff. I don't see fish like this locally.

Wetspot is a top notch guy. Have ordered quite a few fish from him. Always has a great selection and awesome communication. I look forward to his monthly stock list although my wallet doesn't.

LM, that's a spray bar from her filter (canister I presume)

Thanks!

Yeah, FastFly, he has so many cool fish! My wallet doesn't look forward to those stock list either. I have an excel file of fish I want to order from him. I'm waiting on him to get some Corydoras habrosus in so I can order more....plus I see another Apisto pair in my future as well.

And yep, that is the spraybar to my canister filter (Rena XP2).

Excuse the algae on the sides of the tank. I need to get to scraping.
