I have just collected my new tank today, it has water and gravel so far and not a fat lot of anything else - besdies that reall cool root looking decoration - I know it needs filling with all things wonderful and I am getting round to that - It will be fishless cycled so I have loads of time to get it right
OOh there is a towel on the floor because we had a disaster with the hose pipe - Lol, the puppy pulled it out of the tank when I was filling it up
Shorty, lol, what kind of a puppy do you have? I love dogs! You reminded me of a story with my cat, lol. When I bought my 30 gallon tank and was filling it with water, my kitty - very young at the time - apparently thought the tank was empty and ... she jumped in. You can only imagine the rest, LOL ;D I thought I was going to die of laughter. I had no slightest suspicion she'd be capable of doing this! She was just sitting there and watching what I was doing, and then, all of a sudden, she dived in, haha ...
Well I have had my own place now for a while and I am loving the freedom to have what I want where I want it - don't get me wrong I love my parents - but hey everyone needs their own space eventually Jess is ace - a little naughty at times - but then she is only 10 months old Bless her little cotton socks - she also likes the fish - she sits are stares at the tank for ages watching them zoom about - As does my cat - but I think she had dinner time on her mind
Shorty, lol, what a cute dog! I love her ears! And her face expression, lol. I'm gonna steal that dog from you! As for having your own place, I completely understand you. I still live with my parents and I also love them, of course, however there's nothing better than being independent. The reason I am still with them is that, this way, it's easier to study for me. Higher education in NY is so expensive, and so is rent. I don't think I'd manage to study full time and to work full time - all at once - and this is what I'd have to do if I were on my own. It's either studying full time, or working full time - but not both. I really care about my academic standing, so I choose to devote myself to school for now. As for work, it's only part time right now. I can't wait to be done with school!
Nice new tank, 55 gallons for gallon people, I like it. One thing I'd do is take off the background and get a plain black or blue background, I find they look SOOO much nicer and more natural. What plants are you planning on getting. I'm going to a fish store today too and getting some plecos. I can't wait. O what are you planning on stocking in there or are you just going to move the fish into the bigger tank because some fish will eat your plants if you get them then you just wasted your money :'(.
