Why I shouldn't belong to an aquarium society

Last night, the Christmas meeting of the local fish club was on. I went there with the expectation of maybe buying some plants. I came home with:
- anubias on driftwood (won in a raffle)
- 12 crystal red shrimp
- subwassertang
- 3 ceramic Asian ornaments
- 3 ceramic shells
- 6 Endler's Livebearers (two males, 4 females)
- 3 cories (albino, bronze and peppered)

I have moved Circe out of her 3 gallon quarantine, rescaped it and made it into a home for the CRS. The subwassertang went in there.
I rescaped Apollo's home and added some of the ceramic ornaments (I now have 6 from that line - Finsafe) and the driftwood.
I moved Circe into the sorority, which has gone well, and added the Endler's and the cories.

So. Many. Fish.

Life.

Haha sounds like something I would do! I'll use my pet store dicount, but I won't go to any tropical meetings as I know I'd come home with more Bettas.

...and a Betta in a new bowl... (sung to the tune of "on the first day of Christmas")

18 species/varieties of fish, 15 species/varieties of plants - The fish are finally ahead of the plants!
*560 gallons (2120 liters) in 5 tanks -> you do the math.

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.
