Duck has arrived!!

Duck arrived today from Thailand! He looks amazing. I'm actually quite surprised. He's alert, curious and active and looks overall healthy. He floating in his bag for about 3 hours while I was at work, my BF was lovely enough to unpack him. Now he's floating in a cup in his tank, I'm slowly, slowly getting him adjusted to the water. He's so beautiful and so little! :o Duck really is the perfect name for him, I can see his personality already. He's already colored up a little since moving to the cup. I can't wait to see him swimming around exploring his tank. I'll have picture soonish, maybe tomorrow was he's spent the night here. I won't be able to sleep, I'll probably be peaking in on him a lot hehe.

Anyway, I'm really happy and am quite impressed with Jennifer's commication and packing. She's really held my hand through this process!

*Happy Dance*

He's so cute! I love his cross eyes in that photo, lol. Duck is such a perfect name!

OMG. He is SO CUTE. I LOVE HIM. His name is soooo perfect for him its ridiculous! XD

I'm so glad he got there safe and sound. I've been eagerly awaiting this thread since you posted that you bought him. I'm so glad he's finally at home with you. He will be so happy with a great parent like you!

Thanks guys! :D

Kathstew - Ahaha thanks! You made me smile. ^^

Well, he's been acclimating for 5 hours now, 3 of which were just him floating in his baggy since I was at work. 2 of which every 30mins I've been adding a little of his tank water into his cup. Anyway, I'm really happy to say, I offered a bloodworm and after inspecting it for a couple seconds he ate it! :D Hurray for little Duck!
