i like to add that i did TONNNNNNNNNSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS of research online. The only problem i had happened in the first week, due to my impatience to add fish. After that, not a problem.

I totally agree mattyphilly. Without my animals my life would be well...almost not even worth mentioning! I think most of my problems come from the fact that I have no real lfs, just those horrible chain stores.

Some good news. I am almost certain that I am getting the QT tank, I mean I have the money and I really NEED it. Also, I noticed that this week the algae really didn't grow, so I've got a plan of action. I am just going to manually remove it a little bit each day and I don't really think it will grow back seeings how it is not really growing now. It is just really hard to get off ALL of the leaves, but when I declare war, IT'S WAR!! :)

And, I am 99% sure that my "rescue" guppies are cured from their internal parasites. Yay!

Unfortunately I still don't know what's wrong with my cory and he doesn't seem to be improving. Well, I blame it on Petco as I know I take good care of my fish.

My mom still thinks I'm crazy, but oh well. And an unfortunate thing happened today...the horses got loose and I didn't know that my mom needed my help because I was fish tanks. Ooops.

So, thanks everyone. It's great knowing that I'm not the only one out there that is obsessed with fish tanks.

Oh, I'm also happy because I may have a job this summer. Yay, more fish stuff and I will actually be able to afford the stuff that I need! Also it's an internship with a vet which is great because I want to become a veterinary surgeon. Ooohh, and the same vet is going to let me watch an operation over Christmas vacation. Ok, so maybe that's not on everyone's Christmas list, but I am exited. Yup, don't try to gross me out with blood, it just doesn't work!

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra

something seeded for you next filter.

Well it's just a "maybe" for now, but I've got my fingers crossed.
