Black Friday hasn't really caught on up here but we got an Exoterra enclosure for my wife's new king snake, a crate for my brother's new dog and I got a 28" bubble wall because it was on clearance for $1.47.

There weren't too many deals to be had at petsmart and I didn't feel like opening their website and forcing them to pricematch (they usually will) because I still haven't done ANY christmas shopping for my family lol

I didn't know there were two types of windelov. And mine is making babies, you should have said you wanted some! (I can grow three plants super well: Java fern, duckweed, and water sprite. The rest? Whoops.)

And yeah ... but ... I don't know. I shudder when I think about dumping 15 gallons of water down the drain. Besides which, I remember having coordination issues with the 55 gallon years ago. After a few changes, I settled on using it to fill only and was much happier. It was long enough ago that I can't remember anything other than an intense irritation.

When it's a good deal, no matter what, buy first then return later if you don't want it.

Hey, glad to hear your java fern and water sprite is thriving! (you got it from me, lol)

I haven't bought anything new for my tanks in a while, and I'm getting the urge. I did answer a CL ad from someone looking to give some fish away, though. Goldfish, mollies and a guppy, I suspect they were all kept together. I'm just waiting to hear back from them, I always feel bad for fish that people are getting rid of for one reason or another.

Yes! Believe me, that threw me for a loop. But she is where I got loads of really nice Java fern (HI!), which mysteriously did not die and fooled me into thinking I could handle less apocalypse-proof plants.

And now I haunt y'all mercilessly.

Went to pick up assassin snails that I asked one store to get, ended up with 4 nice looking cherry barbs as well. The dang wife took all my cash, and there was a $10 minimum to use the debit card! Guess I'll be adding a few more cherries real soon.....

Also have some plants coming in. Forgot which ones, because I ordered the week before Thanksgiving and told the seller to hold until this week. Should be in today or tomorrow. Yesssssssssssssssssssssss!!
