Wanted to Thank you again Rene for the 29 Kalemie that I got from you about a month ago.

They are All still doing very well and are healthy and eating like little piggy's!

Rene sent these to me after some planning and was able to get a box from him that turned out very successful! Shipping was perfect. All went well. No leaking bags as they were double bagged! (nice work my friend)

Acclimated the colony into a 90 Gallon and didn't lose one. A month later after some conditioning and some Metro/ Garlic Flake to ensure all was well and we Have Spawning action!

Colony was Bit Skittish at first but after some discussion it was decided that Putting the 4 F1 males that I have would be a good way to settle the colony down and that worked very well. They are now all comfortable and active!

Thanks Again Rene for a Smooth transaction!
