eventually it will get a custom stand that will be for storage too, but not until a kid moves out and then that room will become my office/studio. Future dreams, it's all about future dreams around here! I've learned that bigger tanks are also a lot easier to maintain and clean, so no more little ones for me. Hopefully I can sell off enough of the 'little' stuff and help get more big stuff hehe. Or at least a good supply of frozen and live foods. Speaking of which, I'm going to eventually attempt to cultivate my own worms, soon as I can afford the starter kits I see online, and see about keeping a supply going so I don't have to drive a million miles away to find live stuff. I'm trying to get my one little petstore that I get all my furbaby stuff, the gecko stuff and frozen fish food from to carry the live worms for aquariums, perhaps it will happen if I keep nagging them hehe. Anyway, guess this is enough babble for now, happy to hear things are well and congrats on soon to be new and improved room! That's alway fantastic, once all the hard work is done that is :P

it's so hard not to want to save them all. Keep in mind though, the more you buy the more they'll stock...I haven't been in a wallyworld in over 3 yrs now, don't miss them either. On a happy note, WooHoo all new bedroom stuff, WooHoo! Now to find fish tank stuff. I have to agree with weeding out tanks. I got sick of all the 10's. 5's, 2.5's and 1's all around to deal with. I'm now down to a 55 and two 20's. Someday that 120 will happen as well but my aunt is really crazy about her 2 remaining and GIANT fish, did I ever tell you her pleco is like 14 yrs old and almost 2' long?!? He scares the bees out of me! When I get the tank, the biggest thing will be the clown loaches, and with any luck I won't have the influx of snails and can get rid of them to some loving home in the future. I am more of a smaller fish fan all the way. Except, someday I'd like a dinosaur bichir, but not for a long time yet. The sewer is doing great, the water is so clear the tank looks even more fake now LOL. I'll add 2 more peppered cories and some more glofish the end of the month and that tank will be stocked and done. My bf doesn't believe me though hehe, he's pretty smart feller hehe. Well, selling your fish might seem scary but realize that the buyer pays for shipping, and so other than your efforts involved, you should still come out ahead once you get the hang of it. I'll ask around and see what I can find out about it too, there's got to be an easy way to do it or no one would be doing it. Oh, back to fish tank stands, I have one of those cheezy metal ones that a 20 is on and a 10 fits below, not my fave but pretty functional when I had both tanks set up. My 55 is on a nice metal one in my living room, looks like scroll work and is a nicely finished one, but I also have a lot of metal stuff in that room so it works. Sometime the end of the month or beginning of next I'll get the profile of it up so you can see. I do like the nice wooden ones that go with the tank and has lots of storage underneath. The 55 one has all my fish books on it and some other stuff to help hide the 'junk' that goes with tanks. The grey 20 is on a wooden 10 gal stand with a board on top to fit the 20, and it's behind an end table so that it's against the wall and no big deal to move the table when I need to get to the 'junk' but the only thing in there is the pump anyway, the powerstrip is off to the side cuz we also use it for other needs, like when my old achy self wants the heat pad while watching tv hehe. I'm going to be putting the 120 on our stupid ugly breakfast bar cuz all it does it collect JUNK of the most ugly nature, empty cans for the recycle bin, actual junk mail, and odds and ends that just make me crazy! So, we will be happy to make it go away. Besides, my 'puter desk is right next to it (no, we never use it for food, we have a dining room) so when I'm here I can watch the tank and also when I'm on the other side doing kitchen things I can watch it. Eventually it will get a

mmmm cookies
did you get to bake any yet? We'll be doing some Friday most likely. Not much going on here for the big holiday as we're rather crowded with my daughter having to take over the living room still so we didn't decorate but are having some fun family members over for festivities and my famous turkey (I've never made a dry one, hopefully that record will still hold hehe) and other than cleaning tanks and doing some artwork, nothing else planned. Happy HoHoHo to you lil missy and I'll catch up later

at least you survived!
Don't you hate when you want to hate but they give you no reason to? Jeesh! Well, my gang didn't get to snowboard for more than about 1.5hrs, the place had to shut down due to weather. But they had fun while it lasted at least! Crazy weather here, but today is mild and the sun is peeking out. I'm about to tackle my very messy desk which has gotten to the point of OMG how can you deal with that >:} hehe. Besides, I've got a lot of projects coming up and need to make sure chores and other things are done first so I can do fun stuff in peace w/o that little naggy angel on my shoulder telling me what I SHOULD do instead of the little smiling devil telling me what I WANT to be doing instead hehe.

virtual school
haha you funny lil miss. I'm getting better at the Wii and I also comprehend and can use all 5 remotes for our electronics as well. Have a very techno savvy bf who is an excellent teacher so I benefit greatly indeed. Not much else to tell, enjoying getting some painting done on a few of the ceramic pieces and look forward to seeing if I can get them all done by the end of the semester. It could happen! Glad you're feeling better. Sounds like fins are keeping you busy on top of school too. Keeps you from being bored at least!

busy life you have
nice your teacher makes it easier to learn, having a math teacher who actually helps and is patient about it is a wonderful thing. My homework is so much less intelligent than yours, but mine is better at stress relief haha. I'm very proud of your mad skills young lady, you are so going to enjoy college! Just enjoying the wonderful weather here, though it looks like my son and I walked the dogs just in time this morning, it's now very windy, ugh.

not sure why they die so spectacularly sometimes. Had a few do that over the years, leaving just a creepy carcass to clean up. I've been thinking of getting some more frogs, haven't had any in awhile and I like them. Going to be cleaning up my old 5gal hex for a friend who wants a little tank. She's more than happy and so am I since the surplus of tanks is rather scary around here. Need to get them all cleaned up, set up and then sell them complete for cheap. Nice you had such a fun week of school. Me too! and I get to go play in clay all day today (10-3) and finish up an in-class project so it can get fired soon. WooHoo! Welding is awesome too. I've been so happy since I got these classes going, didn't realize how much I NEEDED to play in fire and clay HAHA! Hope you had a great time at the dance!

Need to see your ID m'am
ok, I can understand minors not buying spray paint but fish? Really? Weird. Never was a fan of Petco anyway, employees were always rude and had no idea what they were selling. Nice the old gentleman helped you out, very nice indeed! My son is enjoying is 18 years of wisdom and not having to deal with being a minor. But he is more than happy to live at home still, going out into the real world before he's done with college has no appeal for him. My stepson on the other hand, plans on being out within a year. I told him that's fine cuz his room is to be my office/art studio anyway and I need the room, tired of piling and un-piling the dining room table everytime I have a project and we need to eat! I'm old fashioned, we all eat dinner together around the big old table. Funny enough many of their friends come over cuz they not only like my cooking, but they don't get that at home except holidays. I didn't realize that was such a rare thing any more! Well, this day needs to get going and I've got a new paint to try out, it's metallic purple, like, an insanely vibrant chrome looking spray paint that I just had to have! My only impulse items are either arts or fins...good thing I haven't been fin shopping for a few weeks or I'd have no money for my own school supplies! Oh, BTW. I am so already enjoying being a student again. tonight is my first welding class, have it Tues and Thurs, and ceramics all day Sats. Nice schedule indeed! Take care, and let me know how your tape taught you everything you needed to know about Harriet!

glutton for guppies
always seems like you get opposite of what you were hoping for. The silver lyretail had her babies and there's only one survivor cuz I like fry for the bumblebees and the dragon goby, so hopefully the lone survivor will actually become something pretty and not the typical ugly catch and release ones I usually end up with HAHAHA. I'm not happy with myself, I missed 2 on todays new quiz, ugh, no wonder I'm in 10th place hehe. Hope you had a fun weekend, ours has been pretty nice and I finally got my wish for rain fulfilled. Even though it was only about 45mins, it was nice. Oh, and knocked the power out for about 1.5 hrs, so all the fins were happy when they got air and filtration again haha.

fishy ways
nice you got some sailfins! Very nice you have what sound to be quite a bf as well. Nothing like having someone share your interests to keep things interesting haha. Haven't done much with fishy things around here, between the house chores and the projects, just not time to do fishy things. But, that will change this fall/winter for sure. All tanks are happy and healthy (though I have to change filter media today and do some algae cleaning) and all fur babies are happy too. boys are doing some serious work for my aunt and uncle, post holes, decking, digging, cement, oh yea, they are tired and I suspect Monday I won't see them till noon haha. Not much else to tell around here, been enjoying some slacker time but have got a few chores that can't wait any longer, the breakfast bar has become a tornado alley again, UGH. Flat surfaces are just magnets for junk in a house. We are supposed to have nasty vicious weather move in later this week (yay) and I'm looking forward to it. Going to be doing some painting in the entry and family room so this will give me time to tape off and prep for it. Well, and really need to finish the trim details in the dining room. Only have about 2 hours left in there, not sure why we can't seem to motivate and just get it done! Maybe today...hmmmm, that would give me something to do besides dishes and windows...Enjoy your day lil missy and happy to hear you found Ira!

Thanks!
for the fin update and the congrats. Yup, spazbees won again. I'm wondering why they put 6 spaces up though and they recycled my previous SOTW on that tank, it won when I first put it on the site (thanks to my friends like YOU) and well, wonder what all those spaces will be for in the long run. I've been on FC over 2 yrs now, time sure flies! I've told a few others, used to be you'd only get 300 points for a win! Of course, they have some spendy freebies now so it's harder to get the goods. So far all is well, the house is coming along nicely, dogs are lazy and happy and cat is...well, she's basement cat so...LOL. We are having wind (MAJOR WIND), rain, sun, clouds, supposed to get some snow later and it's an all around blustery day. Sadly most of the snow is gone from the backyard and I need to rake (yay we have TREES!) and clean (I prefer cold and snow for the 'poo-cicles'. EWWW having 2 big dogs has one major draw back, but it's nice to have a backyard and not have to drive them some where 2x a day or more to get them out of the old apt! On to Otos, get more than one for a tank if you can cuz they like to pal around. My 3 otos are over 3 yrs old and have survived many tank remodels and moves. They dont' get very big. They are a fave, so cute they are! Well, need to get some other things done. Oh, is rugby done for the season? How is/did your team do/ing? My son got his drivers permit last week. I'm a nervous wreck but he's in heaven haha! Take care and will chat later lil fishy!

CT?
wow, big difference from FL for sure. We are enjoying the cold somewhat, but now the nice snow is melting, and there's ice everywhere (makes no sense but that's winter haha) and we're hoping another decent storm will hit soon. 'They' are saying rain Mon and snow Tues, but so far, 'they' haven't been right. Typical! Dogs are currently 'dog tired' as my nephew and I took them for a good walk along a river Sat morn, then Sat nite we had a bunch of family and friends over for holiday dinner (this way I don't have to buy presents haha) and they brought their 8 mos old gold lab puppy over and she is so sweet and WOW is she HYPER and my dorks are now snoring away and totally worn out. They all had lots of fun and were so funny to watch. Puppy did sneak upstairs and next thing we hear is a yelp, and she RAN down the stairs...we told her not to mess with the cat! My cat has very low tolerance for rowdy puppies in her domain haha. Her and Mo have gotten to be pretty good friends and even rub and play chase etc but it's pretty funny to see 100lb of Rottie kowtow to a 10lb cat who's very much in charge HAHAHA! Bf says she's the brains of the operation hehe. Well, it's 3:30am here now and I think I need to try the sleep thing again. It's what I get for eating too much but have to admit, sometimes I'm a decent cook and it was all so yummy! OINK!

no news
not much to tell. Still waiting on the house, but the bright side is it won't be so hot when the time comes which is better for the move and all the painting that has to be done beforehand. All tanks are doing great, though I may need to order more MTS for the clown loach and the amazon puffer, the pigs have pretty much eradicated them all! California is on fire again so our little Nevada basin is nice and smoky today but had no plans to be outside anyway, been busy working around the apt, doing the usual, packing and cleaning. Not sure why it never ends, must be stuck in a time loop HAHA! How is back to school shopping going?

ugh, you have parasites
if you don't want them, get rid of them and sterilize everything! UGH! We are off to see a different house today, just down the street from the one we have been waiting on as it's just getting ridiculous that the bank is still dawdling. With totally dead lawns we are just not happy with them! Our offer has been in for 90 days, our Realtor is about to snap too as he feels our frustration. If it won't close, he doesn't get paid either! All is pretty well in the world here. Been doing some fish wishing and dreaming of snow and perhaps ice fishing is in order haha. Girl it's too hot here for me, in the low 100 and UGH. But its a dry heat...yea, so is an oven but I don't play in that either HAHAHA.

it's over too soon
so today is to be sunny and in the low 80's. Bummer. I was LOVING the rains! Have got to get my spazbees tank cleaned today, way way overdue, surprised they're still alive! Of course, if there werent' furniture and boxes in the way it would have been done by now! UGH, sick of moving stuff around! Mon should have the bank negotiator word and then the rest should go pretty fast I'm told. Of course, that's a lot of shoulds! But hopefully this time next month all this will be a distant nightmare and the move will be ON! Not much else going on, packing and cleaning and day to day life. Boring actually, but soon it will be overwhelming and I'll be loving it! Take care and watch out for that lightning, you don't want a new hair-do that way! (had a stepbro hit by lightning last year, he's black so we teased that it didn't help his nappy head, but it did BLOW OUT the bottom of his feet! OUCH!) I have had 3 EACH of stepparents and wow, many colors and sizes in there for sure! If we were all to get together for a reunion, it would look like a giant rainbow HAHAHA!

I am so pleased at the rains we've been having. And its actually chilly too! though next week it's supposed to start warming up again, but with more rains predicted, I can deal with that! have to do some tank maintenance today, all need water changes and I got some salt with my points to keep up on the spazbees. They have some nifty and useful stuff on the redeem side. I hate when you hook a fish and it's in a weird way or totally gross like in the eye, eww! Or they swallow it so far down it's not coming out until it's cleaned, yuck! Well, guess I need to get some tea going and figure out todays feeding frenzy for family. Fooey! haha.

hey lil miss fish
been super busy, wow, house hunting is getting annoying but must prevail, the perfect place is out there somewhere! Today's adventure was a home we were about to make an offer when when Realtor called it in, they had gotten a CASH offer only MOMENTS before we got there! So there we stand once again in someone else's home! The dern thing had only been on the market like 12 hours! Jeesh! But Thurs have 6 more to see so hopefully one of them won't be either painfully GROSS or perhaps will be just right! All fins are great, fat and happy and I am so looking forward to moving and re-doing old tanks and setting up new ones. Have got down to 2 tanks now so it won't be so hard to move them. Well my friend, hope school is going well and that all your fins are healthy.
