Thanks Susan! :D

Some of my Pearlscales have names from the books/TV animation - "The Wombles" (of Wimbledon Common), Orinoco is one of main characters from that. Not sure of you guys in the US got the Wombles over there? It's from the late 70's/80's :D

OK, here are the Wombles!

Thanks Guys! :)

Frazer - Chubsey is looking great! He'll grow in no time under your care I'm sure :exactly

I saw the saddest thing today at an aquatics store I visited - there was this tiny half inch baby pearlie with a completely black/necrotized left gill cover :( At first I thought it was just coloured, but I could see it breaking off - poor little mite, I thought maybe it was caused by severe ammonia exposure/water quality during shipping? I told the staff he was in a bad way - I hope they euthanized him... he wasn't good at all :(

Yeah, we always seem to have them in UK aquatics stores (absolutely everywhere I go does anyway), so I'm not surprised you've seen them in Blighty. Often they are of variable quality - but you can sometimes find very nice ones indeed of you look carefully.

No way! I have only ever seen Tiku pearlies once, and even then it was only one and I bought him :D

Oh Really? Well, I must be quite lucky then - I can think of at least half a dozen stores in my area where I can practically guarantee they'll have Tikus most of the year around. They're often very small ones though - larger ones are harder to fine. Maybe it's a regional importer preference type of thing? Where abouts in the UK are you? We always seem to have them in the westcountry.

Crown pearlscales are the ones I've had great difficulty getting hold of in the past :)
