I've been thinking about alot, from fish, to my daughter, and even a future business.
My daughter is getting big, she's 18 months and the size of her 2-3 year old cousin's! She's recently started temper tantrums... Say what you will, but one swat on the diaper padded bottom pretty much stops her hissy fits. This little girl LOVES glow fish, I've been looking at them for her but I can't keep touchy tetras alive -_- I want to paint neon stars on the back of a tank, maybe some planets. Mix the neon with glow paint ^^ and cover that in black, black gravel, and (if I can keep them Alive with the weird glow light) live plants in red and green^^ maybe some orange socura shrimp. Give her a little living galaxy to watch? If only I could keep damn tetras alive...
My fish need an equipment upgrade, new shelves, more heaters, new siphon hoses. You get the idea. I have big plans for my Christmas/ birthday money! Tons of new plant's and maybe new fish species^^
I've seriously been looking into wild bettas, they are so beautiful, but while reading I bumped straight into killi fishes o.o I'm astounded by the colors and breeding habits cool little fish!
If you guys have suggestions for shelves that can hold 800+ lbs of water without moving I'd be grateful I can't keep all my tanks on wooden tables it takes up too much room :(
Oh! Before I forget! Business! I want to open a pet store, one that ships from an online store as well ^^ dealing with fish reptiles, insect's, small rodents, and ( possibly) amphibians. Mostly bred by myself/ my store. I know the availability will suck for the herps and fish at times which could effect business but I don't want to sell sick, poor quality critters
5 giant goldfish, 23 bettas, a dozen guppies, 20 bronze/albino corys and a random assortment of a few other community fish/ invertebrates.
