2 p. myersi, 3 g. punctulatus, 1 h. zollingeri (l. disparis?) and 2 horsehead loaches (not sure of the latin ID).

I couldnt believe my luck when I saw the 3 punctulatus and the myersi...and all in good health! The little zol is skinny and I wasnt charged for him as 2 minutes after being bagged, he was upside down and not breathing. 1 hour of my theraputic driving later(!) and he was back the right way up and getting ready for his intro to his new tank - now hes just finished his first meal of bloodworm!

Theres been a lot of fin flexing and tail wagging going on and I dont think the newbies quite know what territory they want...just that they want SOME! My p. cheni's seem unimpressed with the whole show.

Cant believe how vivid the markings on the punc's are - the blue on the tail is stunning! Theyre all pretty small, approx 1" - the spots on one are still joined.

Fingers n' fins crossed that they all stay healthy this time!
