Alder cone collection and green corys ready for sale

Been trying to find time to go on an alder cone collecting walk, just never seems to be enough time in the day.
Yesterday, as I was driving down my parents driveway, I realized it was lined by alder bushes/trees! I collected a grocery bag full in 10 minutes.
On another note, my Aeneus corys are ready to sell. I am truly impressed by their color. They have yellow pectoral and caudal fins, a rosy tinged dorsal, tan head and a gorgeous green sheen to their bodies. They have thrived on live micro worms and Daphnia, prepared Repashy of all flavors, Ken's earthworm sticks, Tetra tabs and plant detrius. They were spawned in the first part of August, so they are about 3 months old now.
