So did mine, but daddy gets to make the rules.:P

Ended up at 100 Acre Wood New & Used pet supplies on 17th Ave SE, where I snagged a lightly used Hagen Thermal 100W heater and a small ZooMed powerhead for a total of $6...

Then on to Gold where nobody except Albert showed up (and he was working), but was sorely tempted by a $250 Asian green aro, some nice juvenile motoro rays, some Tropheus duboisi (that Dennis offered me an awfully nice price on, so I may yet go back), and some really nice orange-wag swords (the $5 each blue rams were cleaned-out by the time I got there).

Then on to Riverfront, where there was nothing new since last night :P.

Finally hit Pisces, where I snagged a couple of otos to clean some small breeding tanks, and saw that they had some really small zig-zag (tyretrack) eels in for $7 each, some near mature Apisto borelli yellowtails for $9 each, and that they had completely sold out of the $1.99 red empress cichlids that they had advertised.

Heh...I ran into Gary from Tanks at Gold. Gold also has small yoyo loaches on for 3/$10, and some huge fancy guppies for $3 each.

I may hit Franco's, Petland Crowfoot, and Petland Westhills tomorrow for some variety.

Just tested the little powerhead that I bought...a ZooMed MP10...works like a charm, and so does the used heater....I love deals!

Now I need to make sure my show tanks are ready for Tuesday evening's CAS meeting...I will have 2-3 fish and 2 plant entries this time. I may even bring another half-dozen sailfin molly fry to auction, since it looks like I will probably have a few dozen more in a week or so.

Menagerie...are you doing a presentation at the next meeting??? I am not going to get to see it
I will have to watch for the article as it looks like an interesting topic.

Toirtis....I got 3 of those yoyo loaches when I was in town for the auction. They are really cute and very active. My kids love them. They woke up the next morning and were all excited...they thought my zebra loaches had babys lmao.
I have to give them credit for recognizing them as loaches, even if the pattern was way different.

Yes, but it will mostly be pics of cute fish and me saying, "See, fish like veggies?!?"
