Oh my goodness a surprise frog!!! Hilarious! He is so stinking cute too. What did Zadok think? I love his tank. You have so many neat plants and different textures of hardscape. I bet he is over the moon happy. Every time I look at him I think of Avalanche. I can't get over how close to twins they are! Twinkie has the most amazing tail. I love the fact he watches your daughter draw. What does your son think of the fish?

Awesome, Dangerous! I hope you like being home-schooled. :)

That froggy is too cute! I'll keep my boys away from your house- my youngest would hug him to death, literally.

I love the close-ups, the natural light and shadows are. just. perfect. Beautiful!
The quartz, sand, and light colored pebbles really create the natural look. Zadok must be one happy boy, especially now that there is an enemy to stalk, haha.....

So that large floater is hyacinth? It is so gorgeous.... I must have some..... *drools and wants to touch*

And there was a surprise Wolf spider too, you can see him behind the frog. I like spiders quite a bit (aaaaas long as they are not poisonous at least...) so I just unceremoniously scooped him out with an envelope and put him outside. All this wildlife! It got almost to freezing last night and I didn't want Froggie to get shocked, so he spent the night in the house then I set him free today (got up in the 60's). He went to our canoe that is filled from the rain. There are other frogs just like him in there. My mom insisted she didn't need him back.

Zadok was super interested in those frog legs hanging down. He studied them but didn't bite. :) I kinda get the African dwarf frog craze now. But they are hard to feed? Yeah...I probably won't go there. I have a canoe full-o-frogs.

Twinkie DOES have an amazing tail. I tell him everyday. It isn't full like a halfmoon but it is LONG. Longer than his body. My son loves the fish as well. Stormy is his. He taught her to jump and bite his finger. Eh! LOL. On the way home from the wedding, I saw a cool looking fish store and I yelled, "a Fiiiiiiiish STORE! I THINK IT IS OOOOOPEN!!" and dear husband stomped on the gas pedal. Why? Maybe he meant to get the break and was just so excited about more fish he got confused. And then we missed the parking lot. :( next time?

Zadok is getting some blue on his tail and red on top and bottom fins. :) Is Avalanche changing too? Mystery fishies.

Hahahahahaha!!!!! And why would he not stop? :) You get the wildlife award of the week. I can just see froggie out paddling through the canoe. Your son sounds precious. My grandson would go crazy with excitement if I let him try to get the fish to jump. Definitely a boy thing. Funny my girl fish are the ones that are the biggest jumpers. Your house sounds so fun. I have to admit seeing that cute frog maybe me have flashes of africian dwarf frogs in the tank. Hmmm. Prob better stick to fish but so cute.

Avalanche does have more blue on him now. I think it makes him look frosty. He was funny tonight at water change. I am pretty good with being able to check water temps and make sure they are about the same just by feel, but sometimes I am off a bit. Avalanche tank was too warm so floated him in cup till he adjusted. He was so funny pacing back and forth like he was in time out. "gee what did I do this time? I haven't pigged out on food this week and even pooped. all it gets me is time out hmm". Love these guys. I got my frozen daphnia in so home to feed for breakfast tom.

Sadist, I think female crowntails are absolutely adorable. Their tails... :)

Yesterday I moved Twinkie and Stormy out of the dining room and into the homeschool room. I think this will work better. Twinkie has a grand view of Daughter's "tiny town". He can watch her play with her dolls and see much more of her. And he is right beside her desk too, so he can watch her drawing. Stormy is right beside him still. This room is so bright and cheerful unlike the rest of the house which is quite dark (except for the sunroom where Antigua, Hatzie and gup-gups live). Most of the action is in the homeschool/ playroom. Poor Zadok has witnessed things a fish should never have to see. Heh. 5 and 8 year olds playing together can be...shocking.

Speaking of Zadok, his tummy has been nicely rounded. He is finding plenty of tiny water bugs still. He thinks he is a wild betta with paths through the duckweed roots. He is constantly hunting. I tried to get a picture of his tummy and he gilled me.


That beard. So cute. He haz tuff, no? ;) "Hey, you're in my territory! RAR! Are you scared? ...why are you laughing? ...is that NERVOUS LAUGHTER?! RAAAAAAAR! I am a big, scary crowntail! *roar* Be scared!"

Zadok the hunter! Yes what a big bad crowntail you are but you are so cute hard to be scared :) I bet they will love the homeschool room. Mine like activity too but sometimes they see a little too much activity when daughter wants to forward roll in the room and grandson comes barreling through with swords in hand. That's when I get those "retreat they've come to take us alive" faces. Lol.

Yup, yup, swords and rough housing. This morning I said, "hey! NO fighting!" Son was like, "ooooh noooo, take the fish tanks out so we can fight in here!" and I am like, "You are not suppose to be fighting in the house anyways. Go outside!" LOL. My "rules" mean nothing. Well, I am pretty serious about not jumping around near the glass tanks. They like to hold hands and start circling around until one flies away- usually Daughter, since she is lighter. My response is always, "Go outside!"

The blue "moonlight" setting does wonderful things to Zadok. It makes him glow and shimmer like a pearl...lovely sheen.
