So sorry to hear about Ares, I think you made the right decision.. I know how hard it is especially when its an older betta that's been around so long. Swim in peace.

20g NPT sorority- Clarissa/CT, Ellianya/CT, Tessa/CT, Derpy Fins/CT & 5 Olive nerites (all named Gary)

Swim In Peace - Asteroth, Teressa, Apple Bloom

You two found my journal :) lol.

Sy, psht, you and your perfect water. :P

Gonna share my little dream now...

I've been fantasizing about getting a new rack... This time not being a cheapo and getting whatever was cheap and works, this time I want a perfect, well designed, fitting shelve system that holds... 15 ten gallon tanks. Yea, that's right. 15. The tanks will go in lengthwise, and I've even already been planning (dreaming) what they will hold. Right now it is ~tentatively~ going to be-

- 2 tanks, one giant each
- 4 spawn tanks
- 2 NPT sororities, for female bettas I've bred until sale
- 1 tank divided in four for males
- 1 tank divided in four for females
- 1 tank for self cloning crayfish
This is where it gets a bit less sure~
- 1 tanks for wilds, most likely albimarginata or channoides
- 1 tanks for corys (probably pygmaeus or habrosus)
And I can't choose the last two. Most likely more divided tanks for bettas or maybe licorice gouramis or sparkeling gouramis or guppies or shrimp or bristle nose plecos or something.

How awesome would that be?

I've also been thinking about seeing if I can find a job hahaha. But hopefully I can start to break even, because I am super frugal... I've never even bought a new tank, only used, and if I can get it for cheaper without settling for less, I will.

I spent the evening sterilizing an old, disgusting tank that I got for free. It's just 10g and will be used for breeding. I also (after sterilizing it) put my MTS "colony" into Ares' old tank, and now that they have a heater I'm hoping they will start breeding like rabbits for me.

I might be getting another pair... It's tentative but likely... I just need to find the room. I can't wait to get more shelves, whenever that happens.

I'm getting the pair on Saturday. I excited but sad at the same time since they are a friends pair and she never could breed them, but I'm happy to be getting my hands on some show quality stock.

Oh, wow, I didn't even notice that!

Getting my pair tomorrow... I'm super excited. I need my heaters to come too... Ugh I love online shopping but hate waiting. I should go check my mailbox I guess. Time to set up the tanks for the pair too.

So, I'm not getting the pair today. There was a freezing rain warning so they didn't want to drive into town as originally planned, so it's completely understandable and I would rather my friends stay safe anyways. Besides, it gives me a bit of time to prep their tanks.

I went to the lfs and picked up some plants (Monosolenium tenerum and something they called weeping moss but it's not weeping moss lol). They had a buy one get one for 1$ sale so I got 14$ worth of plants for 8$.
