  • Here's a video of your Barbs Dena!!

    As most of you know, my last attempt to send Dena my school of Guard Barbs ended in tragedy, all were lost due to a misjudgment of mine. Since that fateful day, I vowed I would get Dena the barbs somehow, someway.

    Sooooooo, I bought these 1 1/2"-2" Juvies a week or two ago, they are now fully trained, if somewhat tiny, Guard Barbs and I am only waiting to be sure I have 5F and 1M, as their marking have developed a bit I'm pretty comfy with my picks. Anyways, they are also very friendly now as you'll see in the video.

        I know! I'm trying to walk a fine line, small enough to ship well, big enough to not get eaten!! When I first got them I honestly think a big angel could've handled one.

            The guard barbs have landed! They made it to Dena safe and sound. I am happy I'll not have to have a 3rd try lol! Maybe when she gets a chance she'll post a pic or two.

            I almost forgot, when I told my daughter they were going to be sent to a new home with a nice lady named Dena she asked "Will she let them nibble her fingers?" LOL! I kept catching her in the tank letting them nibble her fingers the 2 weeks they were here with us.

                    Tell your daughter that they can nibble on my fingers...lol My angels usually do while I am trying to deal with tank maintenance or replanting everything they've dug up.

                    Well, the little turds must have harassed my Mystery Snails all day. Many are now dead; and those that are alive are clamped tight! So, I went ahead and moved them into the 90G. I know I am taking a big chance, but as Matt had them in QT for a couple of weeks, I figured it'd be safe. Besides, it got hot today!! Tank is running at 84F right now.

                    Anyway, went around taking videos of some of my tanks. Am downloading them from the camera. Will post as soon as I can. Everyone made an appearance when taping the 90G, except for the BN pair. Those 2 may be spawning, can't really tell.

                      The videos are taking forever to upload! So, here's a snapshot of a couple of the newbies in their new surroundings.

                        Errrrrr, sorry about the snails, they were probably just eager to start guarding your fish and took the snails as a threat.

                        Thanks Dena, that will actually mean the world to her that you let them nibble you, she was very concerned about it! lol!

                        Nice! They shipped well, they look great! Looking forward to the video.
