    LOL, couldnt resist taking a quickie vid, what a mouth on these lil guys. Funny to watch them carry a food pellet around while eating it.

    LOL, the danio was a rescue from a friend.... gotta have corys, they are clean up crew :-)

    and don't worry, I'll refund what you paid mate, ;-)

    Thx Fav, I acclimated using the drip method.... I hope that is still the method of choice, Im sort of out of the loop on any current trends.
    As far as I can tell, they all are eating and no signs of any issues (knock on wood)

    @av8: a common misconception is to think of corys as an actual cleanup crew-- while they are scavengers, they do need food as much as the fish next door and cannot depend merely on scraps to get by.

    and you're still in the know, drip method is still by far the superior choice for acclimating fish.
