Zzzzzzz.

Uh, since everyone is doing this I guess I'll join in. :)

I'll just be posting fish related stuff/daily life stuff since it doesn't really fit into my tumblr or my personal blog, heh. I hope some people will actually read this.

So today, after school I went to eat chicken wing with a few of my friends, it's a weekly tradition, Brewsters has $0.35 per wing every Tuesday, heh, we ate about 80 wings in total.

After that I decided to go my nearest pet store, PJ's Pets. They had more new Bettas in, I saw two Super Deltas, one boy was a metallic black one and the other was a blue with white wash, he was so pretty. I also saw a pearl double tail, I resisted buying the fish, they were kept in poor condition and I didn't want to support my LPS. They also had a recent batch of Crowntails, so pretty, there was a red big one, flaring away.

As usual I saw a couple of dead boys in their cups. :T Half dying ones too. . . They had tons of Albino Julii Cories though, when I get my 20g I'll get some. . . They're so cute. They also had nice looking plants too, but they were so expensive, $7.99 for each, ack.

Heh, at least this time I walked out of there without buying anything. I have a strong will!

I've always wondered what the point is in an albino version of a spotted cory cat. My LFS has albino Sterbai cory cats and without their spots/lines, they look exactly like albino bronze cory cats. o.O Ah, but albino or not, a cory cat is pretty irresistable, eh?

Maybe so they can make the cory more exspensive. Fishy marketing skills?

Heh, I made a mistake, I saw albino bronze cories. My bad. Got bronze and Julii cories mixed up.

Anyways went to my LPS today again, I'll probably go once every week now. No new Bettas, except for one. They got a dumbo plakat boy, so beautiful, but so expensive too, $54. . . Eeek. I've also been keeping my eyes on this white super delta I believe, he might be silver with a little bit of cellophane, I dunno, I'm bad when it comes to all the fancy finnage and colors for Bettas. He's been there ever since I bought my plakat, I feel bad for him.

Other than that, starting my NPT soon, I hope! Just need for my boyfriend's car to arrive and we're good to go, so gotta be patient myself. :)

Here are some pictures!

Here's the dumbo plakat boy.



And here's that Betta I've been staring at for a couple of weeks.

Yeah Sakura, the SD boy is still there, I went to the store AGAIN today (I have an addiction~), and he's still there, the Dumbo boy is not though, someone bought him already! My friend who came with me, really liked the SD boy, if he's still there and alive in a few weeks I might just pick him up. :)

But there's a new arrival at the store, a double tail, he's metallic silver and baby blue fins, very lovely. But he had a problem, has severe hunchback, and probably bloating, the guy could barely flare. c:

Other than that, just more dead fish in the store. But they have a Honey Gourami in stock they're actually really pretty, actually doing a bit of research right now, I might get one for my 10g when I start the NPT project. Wooo~

So today I went to my LPS with my boyfriend, I keep going there, I'm pretty sure everyone knows me there. But! Big things happened!

First off, my new tank! It's a secondhand Fluval Edge! It's in almost perfect condition only problem I could see is a scratch. But it's not that bad, anyways, the Fluval Edge here costs around $110, with the LED lights that you have to buy its another $35! But it all costed me $30! I'm picking it on Thursday! I might put my SD male in it and get a new Betta. Teehee.

Second of all they had a sale on Water Wisteria! They were $5 for a bunch, so happy to finally get some floating plants, two bunches covered all my tanks, need one more bunch to completely fill the 10g. Also they just got a shipment of Gouramis, I might get that for my Edge instead. Anyone know if I can house a Gourami happily in a 6g? Other than that, nothing much, I'll have to sneak that Edge in. Can't let my mother find out.

Also going on Wednesday to buy some organic potting soil, and some sand to cap the soil. Can't wait!

No gourami for 6 gallons.
You could look into badis (scarlett badis are gorgeous). May be hard to come by and they are picky eaters, but it's the only pretty fish for small tanks other than betta.

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.
