    They weren't horrible things I heard... just not great...

    He sells a ton, so hopefully it was just two so-so experiences, I know the one guy bought some discus and claimed they were stunted... but then the one situation I actually saw the details on involved some black angels (beautiful fish btw - and Joe's were great) but he tried guilt tripping the guy that bought them into $37 extra to do overnight shipping. I just felt it wasn't the greatest way to offer overnight shipping with how he worded it.

    Either way, I'd consider buying from the guy, but would probably have to go pick out some good ones for me lol

    According to what I've read, Discus do not get as large or as colorful in the wild, as they do in the hobby. Feeding them a higher protein diet and selective breeding has kept them as colorful and as large as they are in the hobby. Could be what your friend got was just a Discus that wasn't as selectively bred... or possibly less jumps away from being wild.

    very true, would I buy from the guy - I guess, if the price was right

    But the shipping thing rubbed me the wrong way, if you package fish well odds are very low that priority shipping would be a problem

    I agree. I've done priority shipping on several occasions. I've only had one bad instance, where every fish (6 BRBs) in one bag died. =/

    Eek! Priority would scare me. If I ordered fish by mail all the time I might do it for budget reasons but where I only order once in awhile I do overnight.

    Good to know that you've had good experiences with priority though.

    I've gotten shrimp, snails, and plants using priority with no problems, but I understand your concern

    plants I don't have any issue receiving via priority mail. but fish? I think I would rather have the overnight treatment. Only time of the year I could think it would be ok to send them priority mail would be mid to late spring and early fall - other times of the year I think they would either be an ice cube or boil to death.

    Yea priority is ok as long as whoever is sending them is careful, insulates the box, heat pack, wraps the bags in newspaper etc

    Hey everyone,
    Well the anacharis in my tank was starting to look pretty shabby, and hair algae was growing all through it making it clumpy, so I yanked it out of the tank last night. I had to be careful, because it was full of RCS, they love the stuff. I'd like to replace it with something similar for the RCS to hang out on, but not sure what. There's still some anacharis in the 10 gallon that I could try to replant into the 40B, but not sure how that will work out.

    The anacharis had taken up a big spot over/around the driftwood, and now there's a nice open space now that the fish aren't sure what to do with, lol...but, now alot of my RCS are in hiding, because they don't have their favorite place to congregate like they used to.

    I can send you some Cabomba, Parrots Feather or Rotala Indica if you want. I just took a trimming a few days ago, but these things grow pretty quickly. I could probably get you some out next week.
