With the situations currently ongoing in Papua New Guinea, we've seen no livestock making it's way state side or out of the country for that matter. However there will be availability through some sources eventually, from who and where has yet to be determined, but the country is looking into the prospects and wants to see it happen.
So what's this post for then? I've been researching some of the absolutely amazing sea life coming from this area. I've really seen no other place with
The QT tank should finally be cycled this week hopefully... and I'm trying to decide what I'm doing as far as fish this time around.
