Was at 6... now at 8. xD

So I went to return my second non-function heater from petsmart.

There was a mustard gas halfmoon there I'd debated getting when I'd picked up Zariel, recently. I was amazed he was still there. So I nabbed him.

My mom spent half an hour telling me off for being obsessed with fish, and spending all my money on them, and having too many tanks. to be fair, I spend a good chunk of my paycheck on them, and I just bought a 2.5 gallon that... was a nice visual upgrade, but that I didn't need, as I already had a 2.5 critter keeper. So that was like $60 just because. So I promised her I'd cut the fish out for a while.

Then we went to Meijer. I only ment to look, I swear. There were some nifty VTs, but VTs aren't really my thing. And then I saw just... his main body is whiteish. He's got blue and peach spots on him, his tail fins are half peach and half blue and he's so amazing. I actually like him better than the HM I got already, as far as looks go. My mom's so dissapointed. lol

Once I finish getting them used to the new water, I'll get some pics while they're in their cups. They can hide in their tanks later. xDDD

Very cool Elijah, I hope to see the pics aswell.

I know what you mean about sometimes upgrading just because... I do it occasionally and then hate myself for it afterwords.

Sounds like you need to start considering larger split tanks. Would help cut back on constant maintenance of smaller tanks.

Well, the water for both was pretty dirty. very blue in the case of the petsmart HM, and very... swampy fish smelling in the case of the VT. It looked like someone fed him flakes and left the rest to rot for a while (but not too long, he's still quite active). Either that, or like most 'mart fish, he's just made of particularly tough stuff. (Seriously. Walmart fish seem to be pretty hard to kill compared to fancy tail types I get. I guess it's cause they're probably bred and raised in harsher conditions.)

:P I've got a 4 way divided 10 gallon, and a 5 gallon I'm gonna divide after water changes tonight. The 2.5 I got cause I looooved the way it looked.

This is the Meijer boy I couldn't pass up. He's bluer irl.

The pics of the HM didn't come out well. I only took a few-- he flipped out and started jumping/darting/losing color when he saw the camera. >> Yet ANOTHER camera shy fish for me.

Well, it's true I should be getting clothes for myself and a new bed and stuff. And I really actually don't have room to add more tanks. My 1 gallon can it on a shelf-- the 2.5 would have to sit on my floor.

Anyway obviously it is my choice, as I'm home with two more fish. lol

This is the best shot of the HM I got. He paled up lots when he saw my camera.


lol I wish I could fit one. Both ways in my room I can lay down and touch one wall with my hands and one with my feet. xDDDD
