We’re back! I've returned from our month long break and I’m picking back up on the pace with our invertebrates. During the break I travelled to Chicago and Savanna in Illinois, USA. There is an astounding amount of fireflies and insect life in Savanna at this time of year, which is summer in the northern hemisphere. Here’s a long exposure shot of the fireflies at a private campsite. It was much darker in person, all I could see was specks of light in near pitch blackness!      I also had the pleasure of photographing some tiny friends at the...

It’s time for a little update again! Yes, it was another busy month for me, with preparations for my little break in June. In just the few days, I’ll be pulling all stock from the store on the 2nd of June until the 10th of July- so if you were interested in something, now might be the best time to buy if you’re not eager for a wait! I did make a couple videos this month, one focusing on collecting botanicals in Australia- since it is really hard to buy them or have any imported in. Botanicals are very useful...

Winter is nearly here, and the weather has gotten a lot cooler down in Melbourne! A big focus in the past few months has been on breeding the neocaridina shrimp in our collection and preparing for travel.

Amendments to care sheets:Flightless Fruitflies (added a care video on the top of the page for those who prefer that) Amendments to stock: Bulky items such as cups and wood wool were removed temporarily due to insanely high postage costs on our end....

We're well into the new year now, and a lot has been changing- that said a lot of notes will be held over to the February update as there's a lot of in progress work. I've made a video over viewing where we are at right now. I want to make videos a more regular thing, as supportive material for hobbyists looking for more easy to access information!   Some new products were added to the site, mainly to the cultures and food and equipment sections. I'm finally able to supply flightless fruit flies to the public!  Slight amendments and additions...
