All swimming around exploring his new home, coming up to watch me and make faces at me since hes now sitting on my desk right next to my computer, and just in general being ridiculously adorable.....I couldn't resist grabbing the camera and snapping a few shots of Legolas. He was just BEGGING to be photographed. xD
Legolas is one of my newer boys...took me about a week to name him(for those who remember my threads xD), but he really struck me as a rather 'whimsical' sort of fish you know? He needed a fantasy name. xD
Anywho, around the same time I decided on his name, I was struck with the strange, strong urge to get him a 2 gallon drum bowl. I'd sort of wanted one of these for a couple of years.....its just something so different from your standard 2.5 glass, or 2 gallon Kritter Keeper sort of tank....and for some reason it just really seemed to fit Legolas's 'whimsicalness'. Plus, he could sit on my desk by my computer, which I very much so liked the idea of. I missed having a tank next to my computer.
Anywho, I went and picked up the bowl Saturday along with a couple of plants, mixed some leftover sand together, stuck in one of my spare heaters....and instant whimsical little desk tank!
I feel like its missing something still....I think I'll start looking for some neat little cave rather then my usual craft store clay flower pot, maybe a castle or something like that. xD But yeah. Just felt the need to take some pictures and thought I'd share, enjoy! ;)
