Just wanted to let everyone know, I did get my fish today....all my severums were dead, but I got 3 Synspilum that seem to be healthy, 3 Heterospilus that are doing good, and 3 Pearsei that are breathing on their sides.

Will get some images later tonight, or tomorrow when everyone is more alive lol.

I love cars/driving- I have a 2005 VW golf TDI- 40mpg in town, even while burning gassers =D (talk cars with me)

2 pearsei, 2 rokteil, 2 super red sevs, and 1 synspilum for myself. My buddy's getting 2 synspilum and a heterospilus, and eventually probably 1 of each of my sevs as they get older.

This week is going to fly by, can't believe I'm getting all these amazing fish.

Cebo you've got a few synspilum don't you? How do you like them? How's the pearsei also? I'd Epsom bathe if its still bad. It helps with the heavy breathing and cuts the bloat down.

Yes I had 2 Syns. 1 jumped out through the smallest crack on the top a couple weeks ago. so i have just 1 now. they are very cool. one of my favorite fish. amazing colors. not as overly aggressive as i have heard about in the past; which is a good thing. ... now that the Pearsei has passed, i am re-learning his/her personality. since it is now the natural leader of the tank.


Sorry to hear about your fish order coming in a little messed up. what a buzz kill right. ... well i hope the surviving fish come along ok. i look forward to your updates.

Actually it was 2 Rokteil and 2 Super red Sevs all dead. I am not sure, I just emailed them. I am hoping they can ship me out some replacements, as I still really want the Sevs.

that's really bad. I wonder what the poor fish went through in transport.

I hope they sort it out for you :(

Wow thats too bad about your Synsilum. How old is the remaining one? Its one of the fish I was most excited about, the colors are amazing at 3 inches, and they are very active so far.

Btw I did get an extra pearsei, if they all survive and you ever want one I could ship it to you.

I know! I would love to get a G force meter and see what a package goes through in shipping. All I could imagine is some postal worker seeing "LIVE FISH" and shaking it for fun...I feel bad for the little guys, especially how cold the water was when they got here. Pearsei are still in shock after being in my tank for 2 hours!

I've got a feeling they will only give me a refund and not actually spend the money to ship the fish out, but I am hoping thats not the case. I do really like COA and hope they get my the sevs.
