Good vibrations today

Who would have known that shakin today? Who would have known that my bettas' tanks would be shaking today with our earthquake today and all? Anyone feel the good vibrations on the east coast today?

I did! I was sittin on my couch and it started rocking back and forth. I thought the dog was behind it, scratching or something and pushing into it. She was in her bed. Then I saw the entertainment center and the stuff on top was shaking and my fish tank water was too. My house is bouncy anyway. When my dog runs through it the whole floor bounces. Lol! This is my 4th earthquake. First on the east coast though. It was pretty strange to have one in NJ.

I'm surprised we didn't feel it here. There was also an earthquake in Colorado last night.

My Grandpa called me today and informed me about the Earth Quake shortly after it happened. I didn't feel anything here though o:

I was just talking to my boyfriend yesterday about bracing the tanks or something in case of earthquakes... Scary! I hope everything's ok out there! :)

If I named every betta I had in my signature then it would take up two pages of a thread. Lets just say I have many!

The walls of my house were shaking. There was a bit less water in a few of my tanks, and it was not due to evaporation. Maybe it was really just my
giant female betta swimming home through the mail?
