So... The gf might have gone off the rails... Go back to about an hour ago, I was in my apartment kitchen, unsuspectingly doing my own thing and preparing some food for the week, when my phone starts going off. I hastily stopped what I was doing, washed my hands (because was cleaning some chicken), and gingerly pick up up the Facetime call. She has a sheepish expression on her face that one can both simultaneously describe as excited and totally guilty. Uh-oh. I tell her I'm in the middle of doing something and can't talk. She says, "I know, hold on, I just gotta quickly show you something..." Uh-huh... She pans her phone camera over the interior of her little car.
I would joke that it looks like she bought out a small fish store, but she kinda did. There is a local couple that runs a hobbyist "pet shop" and petting zoo on their country road property. But for whatever circumstances, they were selling off all their stock.
These are six 10 gallon stock tanks, some with glass lids. Plus driftwood. They were operational up until recently, so I they should be in fair condition.
Better look at the driftwood... Also you can kind of get a glimpse of the tanks after being rinsed off. Much better.
Seventh tank, probably around 25 gallons. Dat local water tho. Hard water stains galore.
It came with some sort of under-gravel filter hookup.
Bags O' Plants
Tug O' Plants (it's 10 gallons, for size reference)
Really nice mother plant.
All these random bits and ends. Including lights, hoods, nets, filters, heaters, and some fake plants and decor. One of the cats is in the picture for reference.
I only see 3, but apparently there are 4 albino cories. I don't really know... Also some guppies. I guess fourth red one either another livebearer or another livebearer and guppy cross. There is also another mystery baby but I hadn't seen it.
She also got these two juvenile clown loaches. I'm not entirely happy about that, since there's not enough for a school and they grow pretty large, but she didn't want "anyone else to buy them and not take care of them."
I don't entirely know if I agree with that recent lol. But I do get like that with bettas, so I guess I don't have room to talk...
There was some more miscellanous things she got with the lot, but they're not really worth taking pictures of. Gf just quickly showed me everything and went to work. I will find out what she plans to do with it all tonight, but for now, I do think it is a little crazy haha. But it really is a pretty impressive haul for what she paid. For the live plants more than anything else, I think. They are probably worth what she paid alone.
