Re:They are here… and I’m worried, have questions

Dear Carrie:

Thanks for the update. As long as the Mustangs are showing some signs of improvement overnight, I’m sure all will be well. It sometimes takes a few days to recover fully from shipping stress and ammonia exposure.

Boy, your LFS would have to be pretty darn barren all right to not have methylene blue available, since it’s terribly useful for both freshwater and marine aquarists. But if it turns out they are indeed that poorly stocked, then call ahead to the fish store in Durango and make sure they have it before you take a 45 mile trip. I’m sure they will, but let your fingers do the walking and double check before you hop in the car. Methylene blue is good stuff to have on hand in your fish-room first aid kit, so it’s well worth tracking it down.

When you post your next update, please include your current aquarium parameters (temperature, pH, ammonia, nitrite and nitrate readings) and we can go from there.

Best of luck with your new arrivals, Carrie. Here’s hoping they are all greedily gobbling up the red feeder shrimp the next time I hear from you!
