Well, it's been 4 years since I've posted in this thread. Almost to the day. The tank is dry. I have two kids now. We started a 6 gallon tank for my older son who is turning 4 next month. Our local pet store that had good fish is long gone, so we have been through 3 cycles of fish from Petsmart. All DEAD in under two weeks.
My poor little guy is wondering why all of his fish friends keep getting sick and going to heaven. I guess it could be my tank, but I have never had problems getting a tank cycled and running. Do people mail order fish these days?
Maybe I'll plant his little tank and worry about fish later. I think I'd be thrown off the site if I post pics as-is/ It's complete with a stick on background, blue plastic plants, a palm tree and beach chair. It will have to be low maintenance though.
Here are the kids if anyone wants to see them. They are very snuggly little guys:
