Hail, King of Swish!

I returned home with everything you see pictured. The little channel cat
and a few brook silversides are now preserved specimens. I lost two swamp
darters very early on, but no casualties since then. The big surprise has
been the shrimp. They are very shy, but appear to be thriving. I've never
kept them before. As always, I started a 4-day pre-emptive medicine
treatment with Furan2 as soon as I got the fishes in tanks at home. Since
I've been doing that I hardly ever lose any unless they just won't eat
anything. I agree with you about Florida...I gotta' get back down there soon.
