AQUARICA FEBRUARY NEWS

We made it, halfway that is.   Feb 5 marks the halfway point of winter!  From here on it, we are heading towards spring!  If you are in the southern hemisphere, well, your summer is now half over.  It just occurred to me that Santa visited the kids in the southern hemisphere just as their summer started; hope he changed into his Speedos for the visit.  

Our stocking levels are good as wild caught fish are in good supply at this time of year.  In addition to receiving fish and plants from our Canadian suppliers, we have recently received shipments from the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and Colombia.  We will be receiving fish from Peru for the first time in a few weeks.
