Well I was hoping they would arrive around 10AM like all my other shipments,but no such luck..a lil weather delay and they arrived at 1pm.....The water was a tad chilly so I floated them for 30 min then into the tank..they all seem to be ok..I will let them rest and get used to thier new home and check on them later today

I also had to get some of those sweet mellons that Al just laying around,so everyone is in one of my 125 gal tanks for a few weeks then we may move things around.

I can't wait to see what Ron does with these fish :D If I recall, he can raise some nice ones. Although it's been a long time since I've seen pictures of his fish! (hint, hint)

Glad to hear that yours made it home O.K. Must be pretty hard on the little fellows travelling so far in cold weather. Good luck to you on the Challenge, and remember to have fun!

ok,day two and all is well..last nite they ate a small feeding of frozen bloodworms...this morning the got some frozen brine shrimp,now all swimming around with fat lil bellies..
Now to try an post some pics..I took some last nite and this morning,no flash and on a tri pod,and they still suck..I must be the worlds worst picture taker..oh well,you will get the idea.Now to figure out why the pics won't upload..I hit the file attachments,then browse,then click on the pic,then upload..then I get "Upload Error" Like I said..not the best pic taker and I guess not so good on the puter... but at least the fish are all doing great..


P.S. Hey Hans,too bad ya can't get up to my neck of the woods..I have a bunch of plecos for ya,browns,albinos and long fins..most likley two or three hundred right now with more one the way....

Use flash... just stand back from the tank, and use your zoom function to bring the fish closer.

as for upload....your file size maybe too big...take a look here...

I look forward to those pics Mench:) Sounds like they are eating well and in no time will be pairing up......:D
Congratulations on the new additions:)

Found out from the bride that we have two different versions of Jasco photo and my pics are going to the one that won't let me do any editing...The bride is going to get with a friend at work who does all are puter fixing,to see what we have to do....mean while I am still taking pics and will post a bunch just as soon as we get everything fixed.
The lil fish are all doing just great,started eating everything that I put in the tank..the six are also in with the six mellons that also came from Al...I was wondering if the 125 was going to be too big for them,but they seem to like swimming from end to end and they have no problem finding the food.I have given them...frozen bloodworms...frozen brine shrimp...Discus Diet...and Tetra bits...so far they are eating all of it.
