Alright, so we are insane at this point and admit to it. We've fall hard for all these tiny little creatures and the more we learn about them, the more we want to give them the best life possible.
I that regard, we were so lucky to be able to purchase a 250 gallon aquarium this past...I can;t remember right now, the other day, from a former Army Warrior who served two tours in Iraq and one in Afghanistan. FYI - he got shot in the back in Afghanistan and is now disabled.
But he is so cool and has a lovely family. We looked all over for another 125 gallon to create a living space for the three clown loaches we rescued recently together with 22 cichlids and 11 barbs and 2 plecos. We want to put the loaches and the plecos together in another tank. His tank popped up and he sold it to us to $200. It;s got a GIGANTIC pump that sits on the floor next to the tank and some other cool stuff.
Anyways, after transporting about two hours, having big army guys help bring it inside - okay that part really sucked as one did not show up and I had to help (FREAKING HEAVY MAN), cleaning it up and visiting out little special creek in the backyard, we have gotten this far.
Of course, we added the special gift Tolak sent us of established media, which has been in all our tanks now.
