Turquoise Castle Aquarium


She is seriously beautiful. She was should have been short finned, but is a sailfin. She is midnight black and so healthy now that she is getting closer to full size.

I am so hoping for lovely Midnight Black babies from her

Did I mention how hard it is to photograph moving black fish with a point and shoot camera?

Love that idea. Might have to move the heater.

Thank you. I have a daycare, so I wanted a fantasy sort of feel. Something to spark imagination.

YES! like this!!!

Default I need a plan

I think I will start planning with the Castle on the right. That way I have more room to work with plants.

I have been looking at inspiration pictures and feeling very disgruntled. I didn't think my huge castle was going to fit with the plants. Then I had an idea.

I am going to make it an Enchanted Forest. Now I am excited.
