Delays in emails and orders

I want to apologize for the delay in emails and orders. a family member went into the hospital. I dropped everything and went out of state.  Sadly, they didn’t make it. this kept me out of state longer than I expected. I will be refunding all late orders shortly. I am sorry for the delay but family comes first.

Black Friday Sale live now

I want to thank everyone for another great year. I been busy planning a new fish room. I hope to start building in early spring. The new fish room should have double the amount of tanks. It will allow me to offer more species of shrimp that will be bread here as well as other breading options. I will have to tear down the old fish room first. I am trying to coordinate everything so there will be as little down time as possible. I will still be offering dry goods.


Prices will be good until Monday the 28th. I will be out of town for the weekend so I will try to get to your questions as soon as possible.
