There is nothing I find more relaxing these days than lying back and watching my fish swimming about their tanks when I wake up first thing in the morning or before I head off to bed. Its peaceful and they give me a sense of purpose. I love them.
This is the home of my three goldies. One large calico ryukin I called Apple, a small calico Ryukin I called Strawberry, and a small red cap oranda I called Pocky. It is a 35 gallon and has been running since I was in grade seven, which is about seven years ago now since I became very interested in aquatic life and I rescued a tiny red cap oranda from death.. my younger cousin was keeping him in a one gallon, and wanted to get rid of him, so I took him into my own hands and found this site and bought a 10 gallon and everything for it. Couldnt have done it without the help is this site, I guess I never totally thanked you guys, thought I would throw that in there.
I will take pictures of the guys later tonight I think and post them in the goldfish photo section if anyone is interested.
and here is my fairly new tropical tank.. started running it maybe just over half a year ago. Home of five neon tetras and a dwarf frog I picked up yesterday. I might be looking at getting some male fancy guppies tonight. I will post pictures if I do.
and here is my new beta I picked up yesterday! My other one passed away after having him a few years sadly. He seems quite at home though, a bubble nest has already started to be built after a couple of hours only.
I might have a job in the fish section at this pet store I used to work at two years ago, I am very excited. They never let females work out front, but I might be the first one since opening years ago. I have bought my fish there for years, and I was a hard worker when I worked in the back with the puppies, birds, and rodents. Wish me luck!
