    Default The Wilds first Night

    Here are a few pictures after aroud 15 hours from the arrival of the wilds. They did not have an easy trip however. Have a look at my previous thread named Nightmare at the airport to know what happened.

    Note: I did not do a drip acclimation, just ploped the fish. But I turned of the heaters before hand because I knew the shipping water will be colder than my tanks. The water parameters were close from the source as well. pH 6.5, TDS 70 ppm

    Here are the pics, Enjoy!

    I think you are right!! but they were named as altifrons in the price list!

    This means there is someone that needs to be kicked
