Fish order today

We’ve found a second fish supplier, and there’s an order arriving today. No, this is not an April Fool’s Day joke.

We have salt water fish on the order. We’re expecting domino, yellowtail blue and green lyretail damsels. You might know those last as green chromis. We also have a volitans lion coming, and several kinds of shrimp.

We haven’t had mudskippers for quite a while, but we’re getting them today. These odd little guys spend a lot of time out of the water, and are brackish-water creatures rather than marine ones. Pop by and have a look at them.

In freshwater, we have show guppies, catfish of several kinds, including the farlowella , and assorted African cichlids. We’re also expecting hermit crabs and spiny mice! I have to wait for David to get pictures to me before I post them, but they’re coming this weekend.

It’s also coming up to pond season, so we’re bringing in more goldfish, including Chinese black moors, calico telescope eyes, and the bubble-eyed goldfish.

A couple of years ago David told me that a woman had asked him, “Are those bubbles under the fish’s eyes their lungs? If you poked them with a pin and burst them, would the fish drown?”

No, and no. But they look pretty cool in your pond.
