Went shoppin'!!!

Local pet shop was clearing everything out of its fishroom in preparation for a major reno....I picked up 5 pieces of mopani wood, a new Hagen 799 airpump, a used timer, three plants (not sure just what they are yet), two 16oz flats of Hikari bloodworms, two 4oz flats of frozen daphnia, and two small fishnets....all for $45 CDN (about $37US)!

Serlunchbox and Menagerie were there, too....and Menagerie needed a shopping cart for all the stuff she bought! :P

My cart was FULL of wood, lava rock, Texas holey rock, lace rock and some sort of sand stone that was drilled out. Plus, I picked up some frozen food and 4 S petricola. Oh, the bargain of the day was the lights!! 60% off! Trevor is getting ready to build some hoods!!!!

Normally those woods and rock are sold by the pound, but at $2 a piece, I did load up my cart (I'm going to have to post a pic or two, some of the rock was HUGE)!!! Much of it will be resold at the CAS auction in March, to offset costs of setting up our fish tanks after the move.

That was a sweet deal...it was the Magnum HOT Pro kit (some serious water-polishing with that puppy):

Lunch... I'm going to have to stop giving you rides to these things!! When you getting a car again so you can be the taxi driver!! haha

Picked up an Emperor 400 and a Mini BioWheel, put the mini on a 10gallon tank with two bettas (w/divider), and the emp400 went on my african tank to add onto the canister filter already working that one. Time to load up that tank on cichlids!
