What Freshwater Fish Did You Get Today?

This should be a fun thread.
Did you get any fish today, if so, what did you get?

Re: What Freshwater Fish Did You Get Today?

Our last FW purchase was a blood parrot and we had to give him away because he was getting abused by the other blood parrot...who knew...you try to get someone a friend...

What to do today, water change?

Re: What Freshwater Fish Did You Get Today?

I haven't bought any fish for a few weeks now. I think my tank is full! Guess it's time to get another one! lol! I would really like a corner tank with a Jack Dempsey. Now just to convince the husband...

One 33 gallon tank. Eight Bloodfin Tetras, Four Honey Fire Gouramis, Three Pepper Cory Cats and one Pleco.

Re: What Freshwater Fish Did You Get Today?

Yesterday I received 8 small versions (Large Fry) of the fish in the pic. A friend of mine who is a breeder in Ohio, sent them to me free, as he knew id been searching for a long time, these are rather hard to find in the native fish trade. So needless to say im treating them with kid gloves

Re: What Freshwater Fish Did You Get Today?

Just got back from the LFS and picked up 3 ottos and 4 gupps.

Calling aquariums and fish boring is like calling a hott model ugly.

Re: What Freshwater Fish Did You Get Today?

I got back from Denver the other night and noticed one of my guppies had popped. I counted 10 little ones. I am not sure that counts, but it made me happy anyway!
