This tank is gorgeous
I can see it won't be long till I am throwing money at you for shrimp haha! There are none to be had any where near me, other than Ghost shrimp which I like but.... Not sure I can even find cherries anymore to go with the 4 I have now. the knife find is awesome, showed bf and he was impressed as well. My dad is big into native American stuff (we are 3 kinds of native) and has a most impressive array of artifacts, most of which he found. His collection is amazing. Well, have a closet that needs cleaning/organizing so need to start this day. Wishing you a peaceful Monday!

dude i am down to just five of the snowball shrimp they seem to be dying on me, didnt you say you had crystal shrimp arent those the really expensive kind, with the red and white stripes aye, i put in an order for some plants again dwarf sag, java moss and some more swords, i went to the thailand shipper and they didnt have the flame moss for free shipping anymore so i didnt order any the current plant order came from, with free shipping plus they are in indiana not far from me so should be good to go, too cool i was worried about the corys and oto's glad they are doing fine there a little over a year old and all are full grown, man those tiger lotus are doing nice thanks again man, heres a vote..><}}}">

man they look just like the hastatus but they are so damn skittish i cant get a photo of them still to this day when i walk up on the tank they scatter, but they have those lines and the white parts on the tail fin area are just a tad bit lighter than what you would see in a photo of them on the internet so they may very well be hastatus keeping my fingers crossed and if they are i will put in another order of 20 pygmy corys and see what i get the next time, yeah keep me in mind on the green shrimps dude or maybe some tigers as well, hey i am not going to feed the shrimp and corys this weekend so they will be hungry when they arrive i will do a test on water and let you know the values when i ship them to you, i havent tested in some time and you know what that co-2 does to the ph value, later buddy..><}}}">

i pulled there photos up on google hastatus and habrosus and i believe they are hastatus if not damn near close to the hastatus but they dont look like what google was showing for a habrosus so i will send them to you and if they aren't them than just keep them or give them away, dude i get them for 50 cents a piece and i can always get more but they are sold as pygmy cory and i have seen two different varieties and when i got my last shippment of them i believe that the habrosus if that is what they were died very easy and what i think is hastatus were very hardy, later buddy..><}}}">

i forgot all about those hastatus i remember you said you wanted some of those i have 5 of them and i am pretty sure that is what they are is hastatus in my RCS tank and i have 2 more in the old gudgeon tank, so what do you think about 7 of them in that large kordon breather bag with some flame moss and some RCS do you think 2 day deliver will work thru ups or usps and like i said i have forgotten about them til now and honestly i would have to double check because i dont frequent my RCS tank except weekly water changes but i dont pay any attention to them all i do is pay close attention to my shrimp, do you think they will make it there, plus we are having 95 degree weather here email and let me know what you think, good deal reminding me about those i honestly forgot that you wanted some of those and honest as well i really dont care if i keep them or not i think i noticed some fry in the shrimp tank i just took a look but with how planted the RCS is it will be a challenge to catch them, later dude..><}}}">

Caridina cf. babaulti spp. ‘green’
yup, that's the name I was trying to remember but being gacked out on meds and lovely pain still, my brain was on temporary addle mode haha. I would be glad to acquire Endlers and shrimps from ya later on this summer, have a few empty tanks that would work nicely but have a big 2 week June vacation coming. Early July all will be settled down and then you can figure out what compensation you're entitled. If you can wait that long, that is. I would hate to acquire new livestock, leave and have them slaughtered by the unknowing while they are acclimating during my absence. I am already cringing about my established worlds being innocent victims of my sister and daughter. Now, they have tanks and are good with them, I am just paranoid by nature! I am so excited about our vacation, we are going to ND, right on the Missouri river and there is a lot of stuff to be done, besides live up to the legend that is me to bf's family haha. Well, off to catch up before I get swamped with kids and company for the night.
