The best laid plans....

This story is too funny not to share.

My wife took over the 30 gal some time ago. It's been re-stocked with several fancy guppies...very nice looking guys if I say so myself. It also houses two baby bristlenose's, our original tetras and, of course, Gary the Apple Snail.

My wife wanted to add something to the tank that was unusual but at the same time practical. She decided to add one of those hamster tube things so the fish could have something to swim through.

Well, I added it last weekend and it was working out pretty good. Fish seemed to enjoy running in and out of it.

However, today...it all ended.

Now, he knew the opening wasn't big enough for him to squeeze into but a hard head splits your decorations right down the middle. LOL.

LOL - he's telling the other fish "It's my toy and you can't have it!"

Funny! I see the guppies are surveying the damage safely from the other side.
