I suppose I should be posting pictures since it IS the photo gallery, but just wanted to say that my new Solomons and greens have arrived and they are SPECTACULAR. Will posts photos once they've settled in.

Thanks TONS, April, for arranging shipping.

Since everyone asked sooooo nicely ;), here are shots of 3 of the newbies before they were shipped. They are still a little groggy and I'll probably keep the lights off for a couple of days, so hope these do until I can get my own posted.

she got them from the master himself. :D
the first guy who was accredited for breeding heckel to heckel and been breeding wilds etc since the early 80s.
soon after about october i will be distributing his F1 wilds . some from those strains of wilds. and others. he is recreating the red turks..and wattley turks from scratch as alot of the red turks with straight lines and brilliants today are from alot of mixing and not consistant anymore. so back to basics.
he doesnt sell wilds..it was an agreement..one time deal .

Yeah, they're alright I guess. Too bad about the chipped eyes, beaked noses, pinched foreheads and gigantic eyes :p:p:p:p:p:p:p Drove home in RECORD time this afternoon - I couldn't wait to see them. I just about came home at lunchtime :)

And PLEASE don't wish any more females on me.....I am SO done with females.....NO MORE. Only boys in my tanks ;) She's most certainly a he.

I'll probably see you tomorrow. Have to see this dead guy everyone talks about :rolleyes:
