I'm sorry for the trouble you've been having with your fish. And your 'grandfather ' should have discussed his concerns about the electricity before now so you could have arranged a payment of some sort. My SIL showed us the water bill while we were staying there. It was only $15 more and er tried go pay her but she wouldn't accept it. Why show it if you don't want payment?
My 'grandfather' is a legitimate introvert and hates confrontation. The thing is, my dad offered to pick up the slack on the electricity and stuff when we first moved in in 2007, the offer was denied but was arranged that we could just supply the food and fix whatever breaks. And so we have been.
It's not about the money for him, well at least not the most of it. It's the fact of the matter that he hates us being there because he wants everything to himself. He's such a greedy, selfish, buttface. He literally cannot even speak to us and when he does, it's extremely awkward. It doesn't help that he's extremely hard of hearing but refuses to get hearing aids because of his pride and that's exactly what he told the traveling nurse.
So it's just purely the fact of the matter but even still, it extremely upsets me. I know why he does this and I know it's hard for most people to understand. I do understand him but I also can't stand him lol. It's a difficult and complicated situation. On one hand I feel bad for him, on another I don't at all because he can move, he can get up and do things but he just doesn't. He's extremely lazy and arrogant. I haven't hugged him since I think I was about 7 and refused to do so afterwards; I loved grammy though, she was the best. Well I do have to take sides and say that my Memeire is the best haha, but if Grammy were still here it might be a little more equal. Miss you grammy
So I've decided to invest in a 20 gallon long that I will be setting up at my mom's house in my room. I've already talked to my mom, we've worked everything out and it's all set to go! See...that wasn't so hard >.> But anywho, Lucillia is helping me get the tank and then I want to divide it for Steve, Tony, Hawkeye, Rembrandt and Aero. For the moment I still have Mercury and Jarvis, not sure when they'll be actually going to their new home. But I just got a person interested in Ditto, ugg this is so difficult. I've never had to say goodbye like this before; at least purposely sending him away! I've had pet deaths and family deaths and friend deaths but this is so completely different!
I don't like it.
Anyway, tank will be split into 5 so they each get 4 gallons, it's an upgrade for all of them! I want 40 pounds of Eco-Complete substrate, black of course. All my plants will be going into that tank (not the plants in the 33 of course) and then will keep the 5-15 filter on one end and probably get another 5-15 for the other end since I don't really need that much filtration but the aeration is nice to get the water in the middle moving. Might also do the 5-15 in the middle, baffled with two Marineland i25's on each end, right now I already have one so that will only be one filter that needs to be bought. I'd use my ten million Tetra Whisper 3i's but I don't want to deal with the airpump, just such a pain in the tushie.
Then my lovely clamp lights, might try to find a way to rig them so I can hang them
that'd be cool! So that's my plan of attack for right now, hopefully it works
Pictures will be up later when I find the time and finish sorting through.
