@ Pataflafla- Lol, about your dog. My cat got into my brineshrimp eggs. He ate some and I had the rest all over my carpet. It was a lovely shade of pink until I vacumed them up.

I expect to pass through this world but once; any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.

changed the water in the 1g QT (DT) and put my VT into my DT's usual 2.5g tank. hopefully my VT will like his bigger tank. gotta go tank shopping before winter comes along. hopefully will get an all green from my VT to get a 5g tank.

I've done water changes on all my tanks, bought 5 new tetras to replace the ones I lost during ich treatment and QTd them for a few days, and put Magico back in my 20 gal now that the ich is gone. Was going to keep him in a the smaller tank I was using as a hospital tank, but he started fin biting :( So I'm hoping being back in his old tank with more to occupy him will keep him from fin biting XD Might be buying another betta in a day or two... my boyfriend found two gorgeous ones at Petco lol.

Just did some more water changes to the rest of the tanks. 3 100% and counting molly fry while also switching Iorek and Courage to different tanks since Iorek's fins are too heavy for him now. Also did a 50% on my 10 gal with 3 boys and another 100% on the hospital tank with Frog.

i bought some thermometers and a mini heater. i came home, put thermometers and mini heater in tanks, and continue thinking about the gorgeous girl i saw while at petsmart.. turn around and go back for her. name her florence. buy another ten gal and make a complex tank plan that is gonna rock once everything goes into place. then i do all of my water changes and do my sunday gravel vacuuming, and i decorate florence's tank and put a little oopmh into harvey's.. take pictures, obvs. and i just heard a *splash* over near my QT tanks so i ran over and was like.. NO JUMPING, to all of my fish.. put some extra matte board over their tanks to keep them from jumping out. xD

Boys: Ichabod, Canary, Perseus, Louie, Cherokee, Rojo

Girls: Marie, Hilda, Pixie

Rest in Peace: All of my former fishies. <3

Thoth, The Red VT twins - Fred and George, Motoko. As well as Bloodmoon and SilverKnight, Zypher, Bobber, Quetzalcoatl, Tsuruko, Shinobu, Mistume, and Su. Introducing, The Duke. 4 unnamed.
RIP- All those loved and lost. Forever Missed.
I now add the name of Prince Poppycock to the list. forever loved and forever missed.

Fed the masses and letting Peasey and Boaz flare for awhile. It certainly helps both of them keep their minds off of their tails. They get rather neurotic if they don't flare, hence the tailbiting . . .
