  • (guitar music)

  • - Another shipment from the airport.

  • What do we got?

  • Not a lot.

  • Really hot out, didn't wanna risk too much but,

  • got a full bag

  • of black ranchus.

  • We'll be getting those into a tank.

  • What else did we get?

  • Hopefully, it's all alive.

  • Yep, this is a bag full of espei rasboras.

  • These guys the porkchops, they're a little smaller.

  • And then, what else did we get here?

  • Uh oh, that's not good.

  • That's a bunch of, supposed to be blue angelfish except,

  • most of them aren't alive, so that's no good but,

  • that's why we don't ship that much.

  • Aw, that's just brutal, that's brutal.

  • Ugh, so I wanna say it's supposed to be like

  • 50 of them or something.

  • I can count one, two, three, four, five, six,

  • seven, eight, nine, 10, 10 or 12 that are upright

  • at the moment, so I wanna work on these first.

  • I'm gonna put the camera down and see if I can't

  • save any of these.

  • So here we are, here's the blue angels.

  • A lot of them are still struggling.

  • They're definitely ammonia-burned and,

  • their slime coats are just shot.

  • You see this guy up here, he's just, covered in gunk.

  • Hopefully we'll pull them through, you know?

  • But when they swim like that, it's not a good sign.

  • What else do we got?

  • Then we got the rasbora espei.

  • They're doing better, I can see a couple

  • of dead bodies in there, but they're starting to eat,

  • that's an important sign.

  • Overall, doing pretty good.

  • And then we got the black ranchus over here.

  • They're doing okay, you know?

  • Their slime coat's a little beat up because they

  • just got through shipping, but that'll repair.

  • Yeah, so not the worst shipment ever, but not a great one

  • by any means.

  • We also got plants in.

  • Show you some other things, like this is the guppy tank

  • that, guppies we had to bring in because we sell so many.

  • I think I might have missed this shipment,

  • this is from last week.

  • This is,

  • 250 rummy nose tetras.

  • Doesn't seem like it when you see it on video but,

  • you start counting them, there's a lot in there.

  • These are neon green rasboras.

  • Here's a group of angels.

  • Trying to think, I think I showed these ones already.

  • These are black neons there in quarantine.

  • Yeah, so,

  • lots of stuff but,

  • more shipments as always, you know?

  • Probably three or four a week at least, so,

  • tune in for more.

  • So I thought I'd show you guys some of my new goldfish

  • that I'm adding to the

  • studio tank, so to speak.

  • I've got two large ryukins down here.

  • One's a veiltail, one's kind of a standard short-tail.

  • These guys are just kind of beastly.

  • One has kind of got an eye problem, you know.

  • So, it's great to go in my tank, 'cause I don't mind,

  • it's basically blind in one eye.

  • That's this guy here but, he's big.

  • You can see my hand here, he's fairly huge,

  • looking at him from top down.

  • But we're gonna put him in as soon as he calms down here,

  • there we go.

  • So there we go.

  • There's one big boy in, you can see he's roughly

  • similar size to the other one there.

  • And a better color honestly, but you know,

  • he does have that eye problem there but he

  • can live with me all the same.

  • And then, this one's a nice calico ryukin veiltail.

  • I mean, this thing is beautiful.

  • Something like this would go over 200.

  • You can see how big that tail is and everything.

  • Doesn't like being held, but soon as it calms down,

  • we'll lift it in as well.

  • And we can just see that tail there.

  • Tell me that's not one of the most beautiful fish ever.

  • That tail is bigger than some of the fish in here,

  • and these aren't tiny fish by any means,

  • but you can see just how big that fish is

  • next to my other big ryukin, the normal one that's in there.

  • Which he's got a little tumor, but that's why he gets

  • to live with me instead of being sold.

  • This guy I just fell in love with and

  • I actually did sell him to a friend once.

  • And now I've gotten it back and I'm excited to have

  • because I didn't want to sell it the first time,

  • but I always sell fish the first time to customers.

  • I give them a week to buy them and then after that,

  • I get to keep what I like and this guy got snatched up

  • before I got to take him.

  • So I'm excited to have him back

  • and have him thriving in my tank.

  • Also got one more kind of medium to large-sized ranchu

  • that I'm adding to my collection here.

  • And it's just a calico.

  • I've only got baby ranchus in this tank,

  • so I wanted one that's bigger, and people wanted

  • to see more of them from the store and stuff.

  • I just loved his face on him honestly,

  • his face was really cool.

  • So he's not tiny and he's not huge like

  • these ryukins are but, he is definitely a,

  • nice size there.

  • Obviously dwarfs that tiny one right there.

  • But yeah, added some fish.

  • I've got a few more and some more things to come,

  • so stay tuned with goldfish.

  • But I'm just enamored by goldfish, as you guys can

  • probably already tell and you probably already know.

  • Yeah, let me know if you guys wanna see more goldfish stuff.

  • All right, another shipment, here we go.

  • Get it open here and see what we got.

  • Every time, how can I do this every time?

  • I think I'm ready, and I forget this rubber band every time.

  • I swear, one day, I won't forget this,

  • and you guys will be impressed, so I don't have

  • to waste your time.

  • But lots of bags, as you guys might be able to see here.

  • I picked a lot of stuff,

  • so I'm just gonna start pulling it out.

  • First, red turquoise discus.

  • We've got, should be six of those.

  • Float them over here in the discus and quarantine

  • them all together.

  • Well let's see here.

  • Which I would only ever do it from this source.

  • This source I trust much better than other sources.

  • Other sources always get quaratined off to the side.

  • But more discus.

  • I'm just gonna, this trip's gonna take way too long

  • if I keep doing that, so I'm gonna find stuff

  • that's not discus here.

  • Cobalt blue discus?

  • What?

  • I don't know, does that look like cobalt blue to you guys?

  • Doesn't really look like cobalt blue to me,

  • that looks more like red turquoise.

  • Let's see here.

  • That's cobalt blue.

  • Huh.

  • I'm not so convinced.

  • What do I got here?

  • Oh here's a little zebra pleco.

  • Try and show you that in a tank when it's done,

  • but let me move some of this stuff out of the way

  • and we'll keep going.

  • All right, I got all those discus out of the way,

  • which I think there was 12 of them or something like that.

  • Then we've got assassin snails, 25 of those.

  • And then we've got frogs, gross!

  • And then we've got pygmy hatchetfish,

  • you don't see those everyday.

  • These guys stay about the size you see them

  • in the bag here.

  • Definitely gonna go in the quarantine for these guys.

  • It's already one dead, but they tend to be

  • fairly sensitive through shipping.

  • I'll get all these moved out and we'll go to the next layer.

  • Next layer, let's see what we've got.

  • We've got Siamese algae eaters.

  • Still not very big.

  • Darn it.

  • I've been having problems getting in large

  • Siamese algae eaters but, not a lot I can do about that

  • if they're not coming to the country.

  • They're just all small.

  • Let's see what we got next here.

  • Corydoras paleatus, salt and pepper cories.

  • 18 of those, they look good.

  • Then we've got, oh yes, here is a jardini.

  • I ordered it 'cause it's a little bit larger size,

  • hoping it would be ready to eat pellets right away.

  • So that will make my employee happy, I'm sure.

  • Let's see, what else did I get?

  • Let's go back over to the goodie box.

  • Corydoras trilineatus, or basically julii cories,

  • they look to be doing all right.

  • And then,

  • we got otocinclus, good.

  • Always need more of those.

  • Ember tetras.

  • I ordered these again even though I still have some

  • because they came in big, which is good.

  • And then, last but not least, more trilineatus.

  • Looks like that's all in there,

  • nope, nope, that's a lie.

  • We've got cardinal tetras.

  • Yeah, I wanna get these all put away

  • and then we'll probably chime in with how they look

  • once they hit some water.

  • Now here's the jardini.

  • Looks like he's got a little bit of hemorrhaging

  • in his tail fin.

  • I don't know if he was getting beat up by other jardinis

  • or if it's shipping stress but, I've got come zebra danios

  • from the hunt and we'll see how it goes.

  • We got meds in the water, obviously.

  • But hopefully we can turn around, get him on pellets

  • and get him ready for someone to buy him.

  • Let's see, down here...

  • We got the assassin snails, then we've also got

  • the zebra pleco.

  • You can see here the assassin snails are overrun

  • by other snails at the moment.

  • Let's see, what else did we get?

  • We brought our other stuff on the sales floor,

  • like we had all these locally bred angels,

  • which this is all from one person, by the way,

  • so when I show other angels, know they're all from them,

  • one spawn.

  • But over here, down a few more tanks,

  • we've got chocolate gouramis.

  • Just brought those out from quarantine.

  • Let's see, what else did we bring out?

  • We brought out, we go down over here.

  • Brought out the green neon rasbora.

  • Those are always cool.

  • Still got the wild caught discus.

  • And we've got, and these goldfish,

  • I don't know if I've shown them on camera yet,

  • but we've got, I've showed them on underwater camera

  • on the Facebook page. (water lapping)

  • But big orandas, these are hand size,

  • and then, big ranchus also.

  • Size comparison, these guys over here are pretty small.

  • Then of course, we've got Murphy.

  • Got the wind blowing on me, so I'm sure this audio

  • is terrible but, I apologize.

  • Yeah, so, back in the quarantine room.

  • Lots more angels, all from the same person.

  • This is one spawn of angelfish, so this tank,

  • and this tank, and

  • this tank here, all filled with angels,

  • all from one spawn.

  • Over here, we've got,

  • supposedly it's a pair of blue acaras.

  • We'll see how that goes.

  • And
