sorry I haven't kept in touch better, you sure have some gorgeous fins! We've been super busy with the moving, painting and now settling in. The worst part of moving is maintaining 2 homes, the cleaning of the old while trying to figure out the new and all the changes, UGH! But all fins survived the move beautifully, no losses or illnesses YAY! Dogs are happy, cat is adjusting, and kids are thrilled. Me too, I finally get to unpack and utilize/enjoy things that have been in boxes literally for years. That and knowing I will NEVER move again (well, hope not anyway) makes it all better. We decided should we move again, everything will just have to stay at this house, we are getting to old and crickety for this stuff HAHA! Thanks for the visits, compliments and votes. I really like the rockwork in this tank, wow!

Update My Friends
Here is my New Cichlid tank! They are baby cichlids and will grow to about 5" right now they are about 1-2". I will give them a bigger tank in the near future. They are bit shy, and love to hide in the big rocks, peeping out to see what I am doing. Hope you all pictures will come soon, if I can get better close ups of them.

Hi Everyone, thanks for the votes and great comments! Can you believe it, I now have 3 up and running Fish Tanks, and too think it all started with one little betta fish! I changed my 10 gallon to a Cichlid tank, which there are now 1 baby Electric Blue & 2 baby Electric Yellow Cichlids! All my other fish that were in the 10 gallon, have been moved to the 20 gallon, which now has 2 betta living together in peace (1 male & 1 female). My 5 gallon only houses my new plants and 1 red tail shark. Photos coming soon! visit me again!

dig the shrimp!
Been thinking about getting one of those big old creepy looking critters! Thanks for the visit. I sure love my dogs, they are so funny. My cat is the boss and brains of the operation, it's pretty funny as she's only about 10lbs and she rules the dogs like they were kittens.

Update on Tanks
Hi everyone, I have an update, I moved my male betta (one on the pics) to my 10 gallon tank with my mollies and swordtail, and he is doing great! But I had to move my female to the smaller 5 gallon tank, since he was chasing her everywhere! But she is doing great in this tank also! New pics coming soon. Also I got lucky and a friend from work, gave me his 20 gallon tank he no longer is using, so look for updates once I get that tank cycled and ready for new fish friends. Thanks for all your votes!

Your male Swordtail
Hi Betta Lover! I don't think you're doing anything wrong. You must have a guy who's exgtremely territorial. This is what I've noticed with my group of swords. I had to return one female to the pet store because she was such a bully!!! She killed a total of 2 fish, and then when she targeted a 3rd, I said "THAT's IT!!!" According to my little aqua book, Swordtails are supposed to do well with the angelfish because the angels are bigger. And I do notice that the swordtails leave them alone. Here's a vote for you! Your tank & Betta's are beautiful!!!

Come visit me, Myra's & Angels with Swords.
