Well today I did somewhat of an impulse buy on a whole heard of L240's. I ended up getting all of them that Oliver had left, 11 of em! Yeppers. So the plane was due to land this evening, and I didnt even order them until 9am, less then 9 hrs till the plane lands and no tanks for em, CRAP!

So I had an empty 125 gallon siting on a stand in my kitchen, but i need that tank to stay empty for my move in a month, crap. Nobody around to help me move it off the stand. Crap. Okay... I can do this by myself, WAHOOO 15 minutes later I had that big ass tank on the floor and on end taking up very little room. I honestly didn;t think I was going to be able to do that, its amazing what one can do when they put their mind to it.

Okay, time to get some of my 24x18" tanks out. Filled up 2 of them, figure I can house 5 of the L240s in one and 6 in the other for a month without much trouble till they get their big new home. Stole some filters off some other tanks and they're rockin and ready.

Ended up getting home from the airport at around 10pm, did the whole floating stuff and picked out the biggest ones and put them into separate tanks to hopefully lessen the fights. We shall see lol.

Anyway, midnight now, so no pics tonight, but I will FOR SURE try to get some pics posted up tomorrow for everyone. Will try to take lotta pics tomorrow actually :)

All in all, I will order again from Oliver, great to deal with and the fish arrived in excellent condition.

Oh good so I'm not the only one who went on a fish bender today! Put me on the fry waiting list k? :D Can't wait to see your new pics! I picked up long fin red calico's today. But they won't arrive until the second week in April so I'll live vicariously through you.

I'll have to look into Oliver's list. Was planning on going to Exotic Finds next month since I'll be on the Island. Man this forum is going to end up costing me a lot of money!

ohhh more of them eh, how many are you up to now?

Oliver / Belowwater is great, if he doesn't have something on his list he can order it for you no problem. I am trying to piece together what I want to get next.

Hopefully I can get these 240's breeding when they get their new home in a month :)

Added a pic, its crappy, they are all hiding :(
