Matt, these look so pretty! I'd love some that my kids can tell apart (for naming purposes, of course)
A bright yellow would be awesome, interesting colorations are good too. I also like the stripes, if you've any left that are not spoken for.
You've certainly got the orders lining up now. *grins* You've many friends and that is a wonderful thing.

Now if he can get me some Jade ones I too would be interested.

Yes, that would be best, to have some that are easy to tell apart...we'll work it out

Looks like you are going to have to breed some more snails.

Everything Happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
A moderator on a fish forum should be able to identify an oscar... Don't you think?

I’m so very behind in reading along with everyone’s journeys; I thought I’d post my apology in mine. Sorry, y’all. I will catch up, but will of course fall behind (way behind, for several of them – you know who you are) while on vacay.
Don’t know exactly when we are leaving, but it is soonish. (We’re sort of like that, as a family. It only drives me a little bit nuts.)
I’ve been swamped by “non-fish life”, lately. I know that must happen to nearly everyone (if not, please just pretend to go along and nod your head here. ha. Kiddin’. Sort of.) Anyhow, I just did not want y’all thinking I lost interest in this lovely site or the wonderful members here. I wanna be a Fish Flake, not to flake out on y’all.
So, regarding non-fish life, I’ve an FYI to share with any parents/grandparents of young children: If your child gets a non-degradable, foreign object in their ear, do not bother with the Pediatrician’s office. (If your insurance requires you to get a referral, then tell the Ped they do not have your permission to attempt to remove said object.) You want the ENT specialist to make the very first attempt at removal.
How might I know such information, you ask? Well, now. My oldest child – who is 9 (!) and surely ought to know MUCH better -- put a rock (from the school playground) into her ear and not only did not tell me about it, lied to me about sticking anything in there when I spotted it. Grrrrrr.
Anyhow, she was quite embarrassed and we somehow managed to keep this little incident a secret from her younger siblings – she told me how she really wants them to think of her as the “smart, older sister” -- so we managed to have kept this private though both the Pediatrician’s visit and the ENT visit.
Yes, fortunately we were able to avoid the operating room – but only just barely. The ENT warned me when he was evaluating that – mostly due to this not being the first attempt – he was doubtful he could get it out non-surgically. He did manage to get it out though -- YAY -- and I’m passing along my newfound wisdom, hopeful noone has cause to need it, but just in case...
I’ve enjoyed reading up some in a couple of journals this afternoon and hope to be able to return to read some more this evening. Just wanted to tell y’all I’m not lost, only buried. LoL
Happy Father's Day weekend to all the dads here!

Hi Rivers, long time no see! We've missed you here
OMG, sounds like you and yours had quite the adventure. So glad they got it out without having to resort to surgery.
Always something with kids, lol...they sure keep you on your toes
How's the 40 doing?...and thanks for the Father's Day greeting

Thanks for the Fathers day salute.
