Talking to the fish: 'you guys just ate, quit begging! I'm just watching you.'

Fish in a most likely whiney voice, "But we're staaaaaaaaaaaarving!"

I swear they would eat themselves to death if we allowed them to! Mine go to town on brine shrimp and blood worms! It is so crazy I only give those once or twice a week. Th rest of the time they are stuck eating delicious flakes or crisps...

We are REAL! Just ask the Velveteen Rabbit!

Sorry ...just couldn't help myself!!!


Filled up tanks for evaporation.

Fed everybody, checked on my BN pleco who was found in the filter last night.

Bought a new prefilter sponge so I don't suck up my baby fish. and switched them from one tank to the other as one wasn't big enough.

Cleaned my filter last night, the one with the BN pleco in it!!!

Cleaned the sponge prefilter and added water to the last tank. My 110 had a panty hose covering the intake and the flow went to 5%, after changing to sponge, 100%, blowing fish around the tank like crazy, so I turned it down!

Must have got 30 message alerts from people today and I am way behind.

I am going to list piles of Java Moss and the plants...and mystery snails and red ramshorn snails... anybody better PM me in advance if you are interested.

Have to thin this all out cause I will be going out of town and I am afraid it will be a complete jungle if I don't do it now!!!

Set up my order for local OEBT!!!

Have to price some Eco-complete...

Also Petsmart is having a sale on the Fluval Edge tank, 119.99 I think it was. Some other sales too

I got two blue mystery snails today, I have been wanting those for a while and just never got around to it.

Was shocked at being at the big box store and heard a lady buying a bag of feeder gold fish for her class of kids. It was for BEACH day and the kids had to have parents permission to take it home, kept hearing her say, I know they don't really last that long...WOW...
