Two days ago (I meant to post it then but forgot) I learned that glass is actually a liquid. It just runs really, really, really slowly. Crystal is its solid form. So if you have ~50 y/o windows, the top is probably thinner than the bottom because the glass has run down over the years. Isn't that weird?!

I learned that Humphrey is strong enough to knock over an envelope when he wants to jump out of his cup. o.e

I also learned that my dogs like celery.

I learned that if you dangle a big bloodworm into a pack of tiny Endlers guppies, you could actually (accidentally) lift one out of the water. I also learned that if you let said bloodworm go, you can watch a very active and vigorous tug of war between 8 teeny fish. It had me laughing when one of them tried to run with it. It was longer then he was and the others were hot on his tail.

16 Gallon-4 Corys, 3 Endler's, 5 Celestial Pearl Danios
10 Gallon: Male King Betta-Kilo
5 Gallon: Male Marble HM-Logan
5 Gallon: Dwarf Puffer-Huey
5 Gallon: Male VT-Tango
