I want one!!!! How much were they and any left?

No CO2 just excel daily and ferts weekly. Quite a bit of direct sun light helping the plants. Because I'm using excel, algae isn't a problem at all.

Is it flounder or a freshwater sole Pattison?
​I have had them before but I couldn't get them to eat anything but live food ( goodbye cherry shrimp colony )

Nice photo's MM, the Eel and Eel Tail are looking awesome. My guess is that the sole's are the most commonly kept Tailed Sole, Aseraggodes klunzingeri.

Acquired 2 x 25cm Jardini's last Friday, however both died over the course of the weekend.......
 
Spewing, collector wont send to Perth anymore due to this happening, so the hunt continues else where......

Holy F*#K!

 

Sorry to hear Jules... That totally sucks!

 

I see Livefish have relisted jardini... they're showing as out of stock at the moment but I got a feeling they wont be far away...

Yep. Pretty crap. Collector was good and nice enough to refund my money which I appreciate. Only out of pocket the AQIS fee.

Will happily purchase one locally through a store though! Please let me know.

Now It's 2 out of 2 times I've had bad luck with brining fish in, such a shame.

Believed to be poor handling, they look really banged up form the transport.

Collector said first time ever had the issue, which is also a shame on their end too.

Wont ship to WA as its to costly and previous problems with fish that size.

I think they need to be small to fair well during shipping
