    So I have only poor Zip remaining of the corry catfish. He is a salt and pepper dwarf (Hasbrosus) and seems so sad. So two days ago on Monday I purchased 2 peppered cory's. They have all been getting along like a house on fire thankfully. And it has really livened up Zip now!!!! I have no desire to purchase a Betta for a long time or until Leo is full grown.

    It is with a very heavy heart that I have to say Nemo Ned 1st passed away Sunday 23rd in the evening. I loved that Betta he was so beautiful with his long tail and turquoise colors; measuring 5 inches long from tip to tail. I am quite devastated as I buried him this afternoon October 25th beside Ms. Fanny. SIP MY PRINCE UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN AT THE RAINBOW BRIDGE!!!!! <3 <3 <3 <3

    I taught Nemo how to swim into a 2 cup measure when I needed to transfer him from the large tank to say a hospital tank or if I wanted to take him outside with me. Such a smart fish!!! Will post those pics under albums!!

    Also sad news 2 of the catfish died. Nemo had some white fungus on his tale fin and I added Paraguard to the tank. Bad idea it totally stressed out Pip who went crazy hyper and succumbed. I think I might have vacuumed the other one up.....gulp. So only Kip and Zip are left.

    So Leo has been dewormed had all his shots including rabies. I am planning to get him neutered on October 27th as he is 5 months old now. Hahaha he loves going out (playing Lion King) lol. I am out with him and he has meet quite a few neighbors too. He even got stuck on top of Mike`s motor home and I had to bring a ladder to get him down. He also likes to dry spray....nothing comes out on tires. I love him lots!!!!

    Yay I'm Backkkk. Phew really busy summer lol. 5 Pow Wow's under my belt.....and a new kitten. Ladies and Gentleman meet Leo Lucky!! He was living in Don's Carport on the Rez in Maskwacis. Only 3 months old skinny, starving a little feral too. I brought him home August 7th back to Calgary. He slept all the way with just his head sticking out of a sports bag. He sure has kept me busy lol. High energy, smart and I'm his surrogate Mom. He sleeps on my bed every night and purrs up a storm. Oh, and I finally had to put a canopy on the aquarium to keep his paws out. Fascinated by Nemo and the catfish!!!!

    Holy Cow I haven't been on here since April....and this whole website has changed much to my chagrin!!! Kinda liked the old one lol I guess I'll get used to it. Quick update I had been waiting for months to bury Ms. Fanny and was finally able to do so On May 15th, 2016. The ceremony went well and even brought out Nemo in an old tank to observe. He knew what was happening and seemed very attentive. Here is her final resting place. SIP sweet Ms. Fanny. Will post it under albums cuz not working here.
