Yeah, I kept my ears open - no such luck. Most of the available fish were cichlids and oddball livebearers. I did snag some fire ring danios and purple spotted gudgeons, though. And a bunch of cute little swordtails. They came with a pretzel jar I will probably end up using to farm shreeeemps, knowing me.

And there weren't any good small tanks! D: There was a cute little acrylic 12g bowfront, but it went for like $35 and I wasn't willing to shell out that much for a used small tank (what can I say, I'm cheap). Meh.

Yeah I know! What the hell! Those tanks and a lot of the fish were going for crazy high prices. I wanted to snag some random fish for my 125g at college but nearly everything was above the price of a petstore!

Apparently people are just that desperate. Makes sense, I suppose, since it's hard to get nice aquatics shipped in over the winter. This was probably just some aquatic variant of spring fever. XD

Almost makes me wish I'd brought more stuff to auction off. If cherry shrimp were going for a gazillion dollars, could you imagine what my snowballs might have fetched?

XD If you still want some of them, we can work out a deal. I'm looking to get some spare cash for spending at the NEC so I'd be happy to part with some snowballs.

Expensive taste, those Sulawesis. I'm looking forward to mine showing up (hopefully tomorrow), but they're not Cardinals like the ones in that photo. My new purchases are blue leg posos like these. They're due to arrive tomorrow, along with some tiger shrimp for a different tank - that little 5g flat back hex you saw on Sunday, Michael. I planted it today with a bunch of Marsilea runners, hopefully they'll start to carpet it soon. Still pondering what to do with the background, behind the rocks. Maybe hairgrass or Lilaeopsis or something. There's not enough light for HM or anything of that ilk, unfortunately.

Dang, those're funky. Makes me want to add it to my (already extensive) collection of algaes or something. I could imagine it being used on rocks to simulate a tropical reef appearance in a scape or something.
