    Awesome Fish

    Posted by Paul Isherwood on 28th Apr 2014

    Fish arrived fast and in perfect shape. Great care had been taken in the packaging. The fish themselves were beautiful and full of personality. They get on great with my Cardinals, ember tetras, and assorted shrimp. I would recommend them to anyone with a small tank.
