New Fish Are Here!

I went to the post office this morning to pick up the package fully expecting the fish to be dead, since they had been in the box since Monday.  I opened the package right there on the post office counter, and was pleasantly surprised to see a flash of red as the little red/white butterfly moved!  They were both alive! 

Now they're in the quarantine tub settling in and de-stressing from their long journey.  The red/white butterfly seems strong and full of energy. The white butterfly is a little more lethargic, but still moving around and seems to be in pretty good condition.  They are much smaller and way cuter than I thought they were going to be!  I had to wrap some filter floss around the filter intake because the big Aquaclear 110 was a bit too powerful for the little guys.  I'm so happy to have some butterfly telescopes in my life once again!  <3


  1. I'm really happy to see they made it alive! What an ordeal. Here's hoping they settle in and live healthy, happy lives.

  2. Yay!! So good to see that they are alive. They are so so cute :)
