Ordered some fish from Aquariumfish.net

I’ve been looking hi & low to find some nice Fire Ring Danios, (Danio kyathit).  My good friend BillT over at Eugene Research Aquatics sent me some very nice males, but I needed some females to go with them.

I knew that Tom & Nevin over at Aquariumfish.net had them listed, but it seemed like they were always sold out.  By the way, Tom has become a superb photographer of fish.  His photos of fish for sale are nothing short of stunning.  Another reason I didn’t hesitate to order from them, it was obvious that I would be getting true Fire Ring Danios.

Fire Ring Danios are the spotted form of the species Danio kyathit.  The Orange Finned Danio is the striped form.  I first spawned the striped form in January of 2011, but have yet to spawn this spotted form.

At any rate, I happened to be over at the Aquariumfish.net site the other day and the Fire Ring Danios were in stock.  I also ordered a trio of some very nice Black Swordtails…..

This is the second time I have ordered fish from the Bailey brothers and I can highly recommend them.  They have detailed instructions on their site as to how to place an order and also how to make special requests.  I requested more females than males for the 12 Fire Ring Danio and 1 male & 2 females, (a trio), with the swordtails.

They have very good rates for their over night shipping and you receive notice when you fish will ship along with a tracking number for the shipment.  First rate service from start to finish!
