I Might Actually Be a Little Fish Crazy

I've always been horse crazy, so enthusiasm for animals is nothing new XD

But yesterday two different things happened that wouldn't have happened before I got Delfino.

First, I posted pictures of Lucian on Facebook. And a certain individual decided to post "What is her name? Where did you get her?"

Her?! Seriously? Do you not see the fins? Even if you didn't know that the boys are typically dressed fancier, I said "he" or "him" at least three times in the post -.-

It would probably have never bothered me a few months ago, but I found it horrendously aggravating.

Then, I was talking to my boyfriend on the phone last night, and mentioned that I needed to do a water change.

He replied, "Every time I talk to you, you're either doing a water change or talking about a water change."

I'm taking it as a complement

I'm also surrounded by animals, which is what I've always wanted for my life. Three cats, fostering two dogs, one betta, and five cories. It makes me very happy to have so many in my company.

The bettas:
Romeo - HM male | Tzekel-Kan - DTHM male | Nemo - CT(?) male | Akio - DTHMPK male | Ares - Delta male | Diablo - SD male | Nameless - VT male | Nameless - DT female
The others:
The Fab Five: Green cory catfish | Maximus: Golden mystery snail | Ichabod & Rosa: African dwarf frogs
Swim in peace, Gaston.

I love all the animal craziness :) I have 27 fish, counting the community, 4 cats, 4 dogs and a horse.

I've noticed that my mom has started tuning me out when I mention the fish. I said I'd like to keep aquarium salt on hand for emergencies and she rolled her eyes.

Surrounded as well, I got the fish I always wanted to have when I was a kid, I've got Lucky, my dog, who keeps me semi-sane, and a cat named Renji, not to mention that I get to work with my absolute favorite animal-horses, when I'm home from college thanks to their owners extreme generosity
