Thanks gang. Yeah, these are straws. I wanted to see if anyone noticed!

They recently became available, and a store in sydney was selling them. Having kept nothing but aussies, I was a little hesitant until someone from another group got them and reccomended for me to do the same. So I did. They weren't cheap (I really do not want to put a price onto this... but they weren't!) so hopefully I have gathered enough info and experience to give them a good life.

Next step is to get them outta my tote setup, so I can see their little faces and get some UVB onto them!

(And thanks for pond compliments! It turns out that fancy goldfish fry here in Melbourne are worth a few bucks (swap for fish, plants or food) which is amazing since I don't really do anything special to breed them... but pics had to be shared since i was lugging around buckets food of plants and whatnot to clean them out in time for summer.
