New loaches

The good news is that the Homaloptera smithi I ordered arrived at the shop this evening, but sadly I did not receive the Pangio shelfordi that I requested :(
The H. smithi looked very nice from what I could see (we acclimatise them in subdued light) and are about 4-5cm long. I also got in a new batch of H. ogilviei which are much bigger than the last lot (they are around 6-7cm or so) and they also seemed to arrive in good health. Once they've settled in, I'll try and get some pictures of them later in the week.
