Yes, Matt I still want the white male. And if anyone would like some angels, I"ve got em. The size varies from a dime to a quarter -for a dollar a piece. Blacks, Golds, and black & silver mixtures. Also have some busheynose sps-inch to inch and a half-$2. I'm also working on on some long finned rosey barbs. Great algae eaters and bigger than the typical rosy barb. Just have fry for a $1 piece -really can't sex them yet.

I emailed Larry our order on Monday and I have yet to hear back from him so it looks unlikely that our order will ship tomorrow. Sorry for the bad news and I will try and contact Larry again early next week.

Oh well, Larry's been pretty good to us so far. The wait might be positive anyhow. The color on the male opels gets better looking everyday. Been trying to figure out the mating ritual and am at a loss so far. The females have their territories prettymuch staked out. Just waiting for eggs to appear. How's the yours doing Matt? and your angels also? I've got plenty of aquarisol -if you need some and also have some tetracycline. Oh, and here's a question I'd like to ask of you all. Which do you think is a better way to go?Preventive medical maintenance for plants and fish? Or just deal with it as it comes and goes? ?

I figure I would give Larry some time. It is possible that he is on vacation or travelling for work.

Tha mating ritual on Apistos is pretty simple. The female will turn bright yellow when she is ready. I have had two or more females turn bright yellow at one time in my 75g and usually get eggs shortly afterwards. I have a pair of Double Reds in my 5g right now. The female has beeen ready for about two weeks but the male doesn't seem too interested. Maybe this is how it goes with pairs since most Apistos prefer harems. My borellis aren't doing anything as of yet. I think they may still be too young.

The Angels look bad and I don't think it is ich. I have had the water around 86 for the past two weeks and added salt so the ich should have ran it's cycle by now. Plants aren't affected by the salt as of yet.

I posted a few pics on here and one guy thinks it is a viral infection. I am leaning towards that and have not begun any antifungal treatments as of yet. I'm not sure what to use for an antifungal and if an antifungal doesn't work, it is probably viral so they will have it until it cures itself or they die! Kinda morbid, I know.

Not much preventative maintenance stuff you can do for plants other than feed them and give them enough light. For the fish, I've never had any problems with them until I got the Peruvian Altums. With planted tanks, it is always said that happy plants makes for happy fish and I have found that to be very true up until now.

Matt,

I just noticed this post and that your Peruvian "Altums" are sick. Two of mine had some type of malady, which I thought was flukes and for which I treated them. Nothing seemed to work. I took a really close look at it and I finally decided it was tuberculosis or some other virus and uthenized them. The third one has never had any symptoms and is still OK.

Larry was sick with the flu last week. He can ship any day this week except for Friday. I would prefer to contact him tomorrow so he doesn't feed the fish before shipping them.

Russ, did your Angels look like these?

I'm treating them for fungus right now but if that doesn't work I guess I will keep them until they either die or get better
