I wonder what the relationship is between a person's tendency to have an intense social life, and keep fish...or any type of pet, for that matter. Or I could extend that to "any kind of hobby". I guess that's the reason I'm a psychology major.

Tonight I stayed home, did some intermittent reading of "The Mismeasure Of Man" for school (actually a good book), and watched my fish...I noticed a few of them were more aggressive than normal...but I also take into account the fact that usually when I'm around, I'm in front of the tank, feeding them or watching them close-up. I imagine they behave differently when The-Guy-That-Feeds-Us isn't nearby.

I may get some breeder grass or another plant this weekend, since I've realized how sparse my tank is, in comparison to the ones I saw at the local PetSmart the other day.

By the way, tell your boyfriend to try the Medal Of Honor games. They're based on something that actually happened .

Yeah, I've got a presentation due in a week and a half, an enormous project to do for another class, and about 20 readings overdue for my third course. I guess we both need to budget our time better!

Now when you say "hospital tank", do you mean a tank set up to treat sick fish? Or a tank at the hospital you may work at?

Today was my first day off that I have had in two weeks. What did I do? I went to this huge aquatics warehouse that I discovered in my city and bought a ton of plants, 3 keyhole cichlids, and a lobster. I spent the night planting 3 tanks worth of plants (I am slowly converting all of my tanks from plastic to live plants). I acclimated my keyholes and my lobster, and I set up my two 10 gallons with tank dividers that I am going to use to keep 4 bettas. That took pretty much all day and now I am sitting on the computer talking to you guys My husband has been working on his computer all day. I guess since we work so much, we don't have as much time as we would like to dedicate to our hobbies. When we actually get time off, we want to catch up on what we have been missing!

Woo-hoo...I just got back from the sale at the LFS where I spent waayyyyy too much money and came back with something I really wasn't planning on getting..I got an all black betta...I was trying to wait to get one but I saw him and thought he was gorgeous..I actually got to the register saying no I'm going to wait over and over but when I got there I was like dang it ine add him..I feel kinda guilty though...I have a tank for him but its not ready yet so I guess I will have to put him in the breeder box till its done..I can't wait till I get all my plants and new fish in..I'm going to have to take new pictures after this weekend

It's always so hard once your tank is full and you know you can't buy anymore fish! lol! It's so tempting to add just one more! That is why I decided to focus more on plants now that my tanks are pretty much stocked. I can't wait to see pics of your new planted tank cause I am always looking for ideas and inspiration.

I still love my life, although it seems like when it is said out loud. I'm kind of pathetic, you could say. I could do what ever I want, but don't have the guts to and that I live the quite life.

The key is to do what you love...that's what I'm doin, cuz I've got my fish, and whenever I get the chance I go to the store to look at the fish and usually walk out with something.

I'm 16 and I've got the potential, the brains, the strength and the ability just not the courage to live my life to the fullest extent that it could be.
If I had the bravery, I would be a totally different person, at times I wish I was, but for the most part I've got just what I want in life.

I believe that if you have a passion and something that you love, that is the most important thing in life. It doesn't matter what other people think of that passion or if others think that you aren't living your life to the fullest. In the end, all that matters is that you are happy. Live your life for yourself and be proud of who you are. Eventually you will develope the confidence to venture out more and expand your horizons, but for now, just focus on loving who you are, and life will be enjoyable and fufilling. I really respect those who live for themselves and not for other people, and that sounds like what you are doing

Like one of my friends said,"life is too short to take short cuts"
That's really how everyone's life should be.
If you are given the opportunity to do something do it. If it doesn't pan out how you liked, oh well, at least you tried.

NICE!!!!
Well, what I do now will affect what I do later, so I'm taking note of that each and every day.
I hope to work at Petsmart someday soon so I could put my knowledge to proper use.
