And yeah, I did notice, once I put the pics all together like that, that I have an awful lot of red fins. Ah well. I think/hope they will be beautiful together anyway. :)

I looked at those females, too! I'm glad you got them.

I wish I knew enough about females to tell if they are good quality or not. I'm too new to this to know. It's not that I'm interested in breeding, but I'm curious.

At 12:30 today, my Aquabid sorority and beautiful male arrived! I was so excited when I unpacked them, and I was even more excited when I realized that the transshipper (Hopdiggity: Jennifer Viveiros)--from whom I'd also bought the sorority--had included a beautiful steel blue female as a gift.

I paid for Express shipping, because I didn't want to risk them. They all arrived in gorgeous shape.

The male (from Aquastar) is unbelievably beautiful, even in his plastic bag.

I set everyone in their tanks to begin to acclimate them. (The off color of the tanks is due to the Tetracycline I dosed them with, in accordance with the Taiwanese exporter's instructions).

I let them sit, and I tested the water one more time in the meantime. Dammit. In the sorority tank, the ammonia had gotten up to .25 during the day. I changed the water (25%), and tested again. It was .25. I changed the water, and tested again: .25. Again: .25 (though it was so close I had to ask my sharper-eyed son which color it was closer to). I changed the water again. ZERO! So relieved.

I was being careful of the temperature of the water I added, and the temperature remained about an even 78.

These girls are all from the same breeder in Taiwan, and though I'll be glad to eat crow if I'm proven wrong, I don't believe I need to quarantine each separately before I add them. I've been watching the girls, and looking at them, deciding which I want to go in first.

This girl is the sweetest, from everything I can tell. When I take her out of the tank, her eyes never leave me. She will get to feel queen of the tank, for at least a little while. :)
