Happy Birthday! A little late sorry!

I sure hope that they find something to help Jen. This is certainly not news you want to celebrate your birthday with. So sorry that they broke the news then but you would want to know.

Beautiful new fish!

Well, it was a tough week. Emotions kind of went way out of whack due to hormones...yay. But all better now!

Had a day out with Jen on Saturday and we got our nails done! Full gel set so they'll last a while and weather through me doing dishes and taking care of tanks lol.

Yesterday we went out fish collecting for natives! It was so much fun! Victoria and I went along with two others plus our two wonderful guides. We collected at three different sites, though I wasn't able to make the first one. The second one was brackish water and we caught a bunch of Mummichogs (Fundulus heteroclitus) which are typically used for bait fish but they are gorgeous killies! So I took some home and now I have a saltwater tank....yeah lol. Third site was freshwater again and we caught some minnows and more killiefish (Fundulus diaphanus) which are freshwater unlike the Mummichogs. We also caught a yellow perch to look at and then throw back along with some shinners. At the beach there was TONS of ghost shrimp! We attempted to take many home but they pretty much all died in the bag, kind of gross lol. But I have three surviving ones in my new salt tank though lol, they came with the Mummis.

Here's our picture of Fundulus diaphanus

And our yellow perch friend!

And not our photos but this is what the F. Heteroclitus looks like (Mummichog)
These are really nice ones

This is more of what mine look like at the moment lol

I also took home three 3 spine Sticklebacks but two died this morning.

And three darters which I can't remember the species name so I can't find pictures but they look similar to a goby. They will go into the 45 once they're out of quarantine
