    Honestly, if I were BLA I would be hesitant to purchase from these suppliers again. So far, most of what they ordered has died, I don't know about the shrimp but the majority of the Neons and Galaxies died. Either bad stock or bad shipping on the suppliers side.

    I hope those of you that have surviving Neons try your darndest to breed them so you don't have to worry imported Neons dying

    Good Day everyone.

    From our side at BLA Aquatics being myself Brandon and Lize.
    We would like to apologize to everyone regarding this shipment of Green Neons.
    We have sent all the Photos that were sent to us for Credit and we will keep everyone informed.
    We feel extremely terrible about the BAD and The Ugly that has come upon us all regarding theses shipments.
    Myself and Lize where at the point that we wanted to give up, until we read all your guys feedback and kind generous words.
    We care very deeply for all of you as friends and just as much it is deeply heart sore having to read about everyone's losses and the death of our Aquatic friends who become part of our lives.

    We will not be throwing in the towel. We are more determined now than ever before.
    We will still be bringing Those special guys in for everyone.
    We have also decided that we are going to start with a Variuos Apistogramma and Various Shrimp Breeding Project. As there are the Guys who do/did Killies and many other specialized breeding.

    To Keep everyone updated.

    We have Sent in a request for credit for all the losses and only await feedback.
    We have requested from the suppliers all info on there water parameters feeding etc etc for the Green Neons Galaxies etc.
    We followed all the guidelines available on the internet regarding water feeding etc for all the shipments.
    We will be setting up a smaller Fish Room with 36 to 40 x 3ft with independent filtration where we will be able to House/Quarantine imported orders for longer.
    With That we are still going to build the Big Fish room and then will have a Quarantine Room and a Fish Room.

    We feel as if we have let all of you who have placed your trust an orders in with us down.
    We thank everyone for there kinds uplifting words and we thank everyone for there feedback and words of advise.
    A loss for you is a Loss for us to.

    From our side We are deeply sorry.

    With all the advise given.
    Can anyone advise us on where we are able to obtain live cultures of Daphnia, Micro Worms, Banana Worms, Wingless Flies and also better info on how to culture them as we lost all ours many years ago due to inexperience on them.

    Regards

    I don't think they are going anywhere. They are filling a much needed void in the market!

    @BLA Aquatics I'm sure that most people here wont mind paying more (per unit) to compensate for the quarantine period at your facility.

    One rarely see green neons if ever for sale, maybe other importers have learned that they don't ship well??

    If Zebra Otos are available, I'm in like sin. Hopefully they won't cost as much as zebra plecos! But good on @BLA Aquatics for their response.
