    Hi Khalid

    The fish were imported with the usual health certificate and checked by my clearing agent and customs and then they have spent 10 days in my quarantine with various treatments. They are now very active and eating well with 0 DOA's and 0 deaths during the quarantine!!

    Also as i said earlier in the thread all these fish are captive bred, not wild caught!!

    Thanks
    Fiona

    Hi everyone,

    I collected my embers today and everything went smoothly. The fish look good and seem to be having a great time in my tank.

    It was a pleasure working with Fiona and I look forward to buying more interesting fish from her in the future. There are some really nice plecos in stock BTW. :thumb:

    Cheers!

    I'm interested in those dwarf cihclids. . Apistogramma Cacatuoides

    Could you specify the variation/colour morph?

    Hi All

    Tank Master - OK so the Apisto Cockatoo's are the RED variant and are just now starting to get some colours - but still young so will take a little longer to really show off :)

    Green Guppy - Very Glad your fishies are settled already!! Always glad to hear that!!

    CT Guys - Very glad we managed to sort everything out and you got everything over the weekend - see the jumping flea express works well under pressure :) ..... considering the rush it went smoothly :hello2:

    Still got some L02's, L333's and my personal favourite L201 (these are pitch black with awesome spots).....

    Thanks tons :)

    Hi southflea

    Might I suggest, for your next import, you get in some L number Ancistrus. Namely, L182, L184 and LDA008. These have been under the radar for a while. I'm sure many of us will grab these if you get them in.

    I didn't really like the Red cacatuoides. . Not many people buy these because of the dull colouration when younger, little do they know that they grow into some very beautiful fish!

    I PM'd you about something. Maybe you can help out.
