    No borellii or trifasciata. The rest will be filling.

    And I was REALLY excited about the borellii. Oh well, hopefully next time.

    Your best bet is to check back in this section of the forum and at www.aquaticclarity.com for what I have coming in. I wish I could keep track of all the requests for fish but it has just become to big of a list to manage and I'm forever missing someone who asked about something. And I don't want you to miss out on fish that are seldom available!

    I'm working on getting a forum up off my web site just as a place to track requests, post more detailed info about pending orders, give a place for Q and A about stock, and the like. It's still a week or two away from being up and running though as I won't have a lot of spare time in the week to finish it up.

    A few last minute add ons to the order:

    Apistogramma sp. (Brazil)
    Dicrossus maculatus (I'm guessing these will actually be filamentosus though)
    Poecilocharax weitzmani
    Corydoras sp Super Schwartzi CW 28
    Symphysodon axelodi blue discus lrg. (Manacapuru River)

    The price of filamentosus versus maculatus versus "Tapajos" would be several-fold difference. Just the price alone would give you a good idea which Dicrossus it would be.

    Gender is tough on all but a few larger males. The ID is still in question though as the fish aren't colored up much as of yet (bare bottom tank with some other fish in with them). I'll try to move a few to a better tank to let them color up. Pictures will be at least a few more days unless you want shots of cream colored fish with a few spots on their sides...(maybe Mike would find those shots useful)

    Your messaging is full and will receive no more PMs, hence the post here.

    As it is the day before you ship and I can get no responses I must assume that my order has fallen through for one reason or another. I appreciate the time you've spent to this point, and am sorry we couldn't do business. Perhaps we'll try again at some future point...
