Ok, so I’m running a bit late… you’ll get used to that. 🙂

Last week I made an order with for some aquatic plants and some algae eating shrimp.
They were packed into a little foam box in Bundaberg, QLD., on Wednesday afternoon, and by Thursday lunchtime they’d flown via Sydney to Armidale, NSW. All the contents were well packed and had survived the trip quite well. I added the livestock to the tank that evening and the plants this morning.

Here is the final product (thus far):
