New tank mates! Yeah!

VyI have been trying to wait patiently to add some more fish to my 55g and finally felt safe to do so yesterday. I went to one of my LFS and picked up 4 tiger barbs! They are happily swimming around the tank with my 6 long finned danios! I love the curiosity of danios. As soon as I put the closed bag in the tank they swam right over to see what it was! The tigers seemed a little skiddish at first but chilled out after a few min. They look awesome in the tank! A good set with the danios. After a few weeks I will get a few more of them or a few more danios. Wish I was home to watch them.

I'm not the only one loving the new arrivals. But now I have to put the guards on the backs of the lids because she just figured out she can stick her paw in the water that way.

She is so cute it's hard to get mad at her sometimes even when she has knocked over my last remaining flower pot! The tanks are great for us but for her it's kitty TV!

What a cute kitty! I like the look of tiger barbs. My boyfriend would really like to have some, but my community is already stocked.
