Yesterday, before we got the first of our area's predicted snow (more to come tonight
), I did go to PetSmart to check out plant prices, and I was quite pleased with what I saw, though it took me a bit to find some Java Fern (seemed to be almost out of stock), lots of Anubias, and some Water Wisteria. (Is that a floating plant or am I just that bad at remembering plants?) All reasonably priced, though I was made utterly confused once again by seeing that all of the plants were supposedly snail free, and then the ones in particular containers were pest & disease free (or something like that) as well as being snail free.
This leads to another question-do plants need to be quarantined? Silly question, I know, but I don't want to mess anything up whenever I do get plants for my boys.
Not to worried about the price of a new bulb for the tank, since bulbs are usually decent priced. Also at PetSmart I bought some more test strips from API (like them much better than the crappy Wal-Mart ones) and a second collapsible dog dish for Lucky's crate since he seems to like the height of the one bowl for his water, so we thought we'd try putting his food in his crate as well. He's been doing really well with crate training so far, just putting up a bit of a fuss by trying to not walk in, but once we say to walk in, he goes right in (then stares at us accusingly as he trembles-poor guy
. I always feel terrible when he starts trembling).
I also went to Wal-Mart yesterday and picked up some random things from magnets (thinking of trying to make some ceramic magnets-possibly bettas and some other animals), some necklace thingies (don't really know their official name) for one of my necklaces that had lost its part to hold on the amulet (probably a better name for it that I can't think of >.<).
Today I'm hoping to see the horses tonight while helping out with chores (have to double-check with the owner though, later today). Then my friend will be spending the night for New Year's Eve, so that's exciting!
The betta boys aren't really happy since they are having a fasting day today. Tomorrow will be a 50% WC to get us (hopefully) back on schedule of doing that during the middle of the week.
