    Received my H. Formosa today. They are all alive and doing well.
I put them in a tank full of  Najas and with all of the rain we have
plenty of mosquito larvae to start them eating. The wife was surprised
at the size of the box.
  I hope to have some raised in time to sell in our auction in

     Thanks again,
