This is going to be a HUGE update, so get comfortable.
THE PLANTS CAME!!! They DID come on Friday. here are pictures of packaging, and the plants!
So nice of them to put PERISHABLE on the packaging! (the bag was in the box)
This was inside the bag
This was inside the paper
The plants were wrapped in paper in the bag, but I didn't get a pic of that
This is the java fen, it doesn't look too happy, I hope it'll bounce back!
This is the water sprite, I wish it didn't have the dirt in the roots, but what can you do, right?
This is the Brazilian Pennwort, I wish I ordered more of this!!
This is the Pygmy chain sword (advertized as narrow leaf chain sword... which I believe is the same thing) This is HUGE compared to what I thought it would be! AND there are a LOT of plants in one "bunch" it's 10 plants!! and they are HUGE!!
And here is a full tank shot of the tank right after planting... There's java moss all over the sand, lol.
I PRESENT TO YOU EDMOND!!!
^This was taken right after he was introduiced into the tank, he was crawling around IMMEDIATELY after I put him in! I've heard tell that they don't come out for a couple days, but he was crawling around on the way home, in a MOVING CAR!! I'm just amazed at this guy! He was the only one moving in the whole tank at the store, so I got him cause you can't be crawling up a wall and be dead.
We (my sister actually) named him Edmond after Edmond Hillery, the mountaineer.
Here (below) is him right after I put him in his bag, into the tank, to equalize the temp (I hadn't started acclimating him yet.) Sorry about the crappy picture.
And here is a video of him eating off the glass. (Or at least that's what I think he's doing...)
