Yeah ... the one time something even HAPPENED in my end of CT, I wasn't able to make it. Really bummed, but there's more variety in NY, anyway. And food. And people.

And ... my shrimp tank is already growing more duckweed than my goldfish can eat ... at least, I don't think it's good for her to be eating more. I thought she was going to actually explode for a while there. Kaboom. Stock tub would be a heck of a lot cheaper than a glass tank, though.

Yes, one day we all must sit down and grab a bite to eat and chit chat! No visiting LFS or swapping, just enjoying each other's company.

i sort of gave up on sorting and just keep them in separate tanks now... it was just a battle that wasnt worth fighting for.

Everyone, chibikaie isnt feeling well today and went to work anyway just to give this lil' guy his vitamins!



please send her some warm wishes.

Aokashi? ever play with a joey? I had a friend who fostered them for a short while. had to take em out of the sack to feed and all. i never heard of any of this and was absolutely fascinated.

Has anyone ever been to that little cafe up the block from the flushing library in flushing? It had a giant planted tank with some large angelfish in it. Don't know if its still there, but it was pretty cool and it would be a nice place to eat.

I totally have extra duckweed. It is growing well beyond my expectations and beyond the digestive capacity of my one fish. Allllll yours

He was actually a scruffier looking albino but still cute. Would not have forgiven myself if he didn't get it and died
