I decided a couple months ago that I wanted moss, but would just wait to see some in one of the shops. Still haven't seen any, probably wont. So, I'm getting some java moss off of ebay in a few days.

But, a few weeks ago I saw some balls of moss (shop assistant didn't know what type it was, might have been marimo balls....)(and I would have gotten a couple, but they were about $15 EACH) but they were just floating mid-water! Reminded me of mines in the ocean! Would be neat to see where these sorts of moss balls decide to go each day... "hmm, a bit cold. I'll go near the heater". lol Or the fish can have a game of Moss Ball... first fish to push his moss ball to the other side wins!

Are banana plants easy to keep, Pew? (I had a beagle who recently passed...anyways, when you said" pew..pewpewpew"and pointed your finger at her, she would go all crazy and run around like mad and your name reminds me of her <3)

I love the bananas :) heehee.

Yeah, they just sit there, lookin all derp and cute. I use fertilizer and a decent bit of light and they like it. Lower maintenance, but they dont like too strong of a current. You kinda...sit them...on the gravel (no marbles/barebottom) and they root out in a day or two. Creepy white roots, but its cute in a way.

The tubers on the bottom, the nanas, cant be buried completely.

Id recommend :BBB

A PetCo, 3 PetSmarts, and a fish store later I came home with;

(2) baby wendtti, (1) corkscrew val, (1) bunch of java moss, and (1) large bunch of moneywort for$ 15 ;3

I also came home with (1) dead AB fish. Yaaaay.... Ironically, I no longer need the plants... I will see about a live guarantee to see about a new male, though. God this fish is gorgeous...

No heat pack. Nope. Just my usual temp in this area. It was over a 100* today... the water was so ridiculously warm. Chard and I discussed, next time more water, more insulation, cooler day. Maybe even ship the fish to the post office instead?

Yeah, he is always so patient with me.

No, mailbox. And im so pissed. I had a package a couple hours earlier thinking it was him that I had to pick up from the apartment office. Like c'mon, why didn't my fish get put in there, rather a metal mailbox on a 100* day?!
