My wife took me to the Florida Aquarium for "our" anniversary/memorial day. Here is a picture of a poor guy cleaning the fish tank!!!

I guess I'll start vacuuming my five tanks today (with a smile on my face).

Too, we don't have to be worried about being eaten while doing it. Hope you had a great time.

Thanks everyone!
Thanks Everyone.

I had a great time. It was like the ultimate for the fish hobbiest!
I'm gonna post a few pictures on my profile.

I just found out that The Tampa Bay Aquarium Society meets on the second Monday of every month at 7:30 at the Florida Aquarium. I think I'm gonna look into it.

And to think we worried about the moma and daddy fish biting us...does not even compare to that!!! I hope that guy has a super sized python...can you imagine the buckets for that if he didn't! Well I did not mind water changes anyway but I can really look at them in a different light after that pic!

hey folks..... if you like fish, why no volunteer and get to 'play' around the fish all the time? i've been doing it for about 6 years now and it's a total blast and the folks are great to 'work' for. somebody's gotta clean the shark tank!!

check out https://volunteer.flaquarium.org/ for more details. just email casey melton and she'll get pointed in the right direction.

yeah, I failed to mention the $$$ part.... An unattainable dream for most of us. Like those megabillionaires that can afford to go on the space shuttles.

but isn't it awesome? I was so fascinated by the technology.

The problem is that I've been telling my wife that everything is under $20 every time I go to the LFS ... LOL! ... so $30k is probably out of the question ...

Moe, I'll let you in on a little secret. My bet is that your wife doesn't beleive everythings under $20 at the fish store.... She's just letting you think she does, so that she can keep buying her "under $20" shoes from the mall !!!

Do we all use "20 bucks"? Is that the standard? Ha-Ha!
