on the bright side my pump arrived today + in that package also arrived some crinkly catnip toys i ordered. my cats are having a blast nibbling on them.
If they are treated the same a live plants they could have been confiscated. For those who may not know, it's illegal to import live plants and Customs will confiscate them. On other forums people have posted that Customs actually paid them a call and they were fined.

oh my god, i hope not. i saw several other folks received their IAL on the reviews, but maybe that's what happened.

+ how do you normally get IAL? (is there like a place where they grow in the states..?)

When he comes back on selling his Betta, Martias Pham on FaceBook will have, I believe, 50 leaves for $12.00. I can ask. That's where I will be getting mine. I am sure his are imported to him but Martias is in Houston so no import worries on our end.

NICE. That's a good deal! I'll have to look him up.

Saw an ad on an Australian free classifieds site for a 17 year old dog that sounded like it was going blind, deaf, as well as suffering from arthritis. If I recall correctly, it was their son's dog and they had been taking care of it for a number of years, and had expected it to have passed away already. I believe the reason they were rehoming the dog was because they wanted to travel.

Nothing makes me more furious than seeing people trying to fob off the responsibility (and costs) of a senior pet onto others. Especially for such frivolous reasons.

My grandpa passed away on Saturday. It's been a rough few days and I don't really think his death is affecting me like everyone else is. I've been depressed the past few days, thought I should be happy because the guy is back but I must of spoken to soon because he's now in a relationship and I don't want to dig or pry into his life. We were supposed to hang out at his house and watch a movie today before I go into work but he isn't home. He asked me to come over at 8:30 but I was half awake and didn't respond to his message till later.

Idk it doesn't seem to be much of a rant...
I'm babysitting 2 birds who terrorize me and hold me hostage in the closet or on the bed and everyone just laughs at me.

I've been patiently waiting for Pygmy Rainbowfish to come back into stock, and they finally become available again .... just when I have no money for them.

Story of my fish keeping life.

Is four bettas, five goldfish, two guppies and one Cory catfish too many fish for one person to have

Also looking for a free 3d model of a betta fish to use to make my avatar.

No LOL. I currently have five bettas, thirteen Cories (Panda & Pygmy), five Mollies (three male, two female), and four Harlequin Rasboras. Oh; I also have eight longfin Blue Danios.

The Males~
Lucifer, Gabriel, Titan, King, Finnegan, Fin-again & Ricky.
Lucifer & Gabriel are my only non-rescues...

The Females~
