Sketchy! Wonder how many people bought them thinking they were Denisons?

They have some at my Big Als (Denisons) if they go on super cheap for Boxing Week Madness I was thinking of getting some, but with these mean chinese algae eaters, I don't know.

The dwarf peas LOVE the white worms. Now they both come front and center when they see it is feeding time.

I sure wish my one and only (now) Pea Puffer would come out to eat.I ALWAYS have to look in the tank for him.He never just swims around.Just hides all the time.I wish there was something else I could put in with him but I know there really isn't.He has to be lonely I would think.Being all alone!

Thanks Stetez. They are looking better with the addition of the live plants. I'm glad everyone here peer pressured me into trying them.

Blu, what do you feed him again?

Took a quick shot of the 220 to test the new camera. Got a good clip of a bala, the ropfish, and the britstlenose. He is huge! I had no idea my other bristlenose was going to get that big.

I'm surprised he won't eat. Mine started eating as soon as I got the live worms. Now when I come to the tank, they come out expecting to be fed. I used to have to stare at the tank waiting for them to show. They're so small they can really get lost when they want to.

Jakie, Boxer, (any Canadians), I got the Big Al's boxing week sale flyer in the mail today and it has some AWESOME deals on food, test kits, display stands, everything. A lot of stuff is 20%-75% off including fish and reptiles, ornaments, driftwood.

I hope we have some money after Chirstmas!

And it's not just boxing day, it's from boxing day until new years eve.

They have my terrarium on for 59.99, the stand for 44.99, and the dome light for 9.99

At the Black Friday sale I got all that for 79.99, and my dome light is bigger. So I feel vindicated for buying it when we really couldn't afford it, lol.

We got all our Christmas shopping finished today, including everything for Christmas dinner, and Jodie is off until Friday at midnight, so we can just relax and enjoy the holidays.

I changed some settings and am getting better battery life now. We needed it for today because we took Charlie to see Santa.

The problem with the new camera is now you can see how dirty my glass is. I had no idea there were so many water spots.

The algae eaters are doing a great job on the algae, but the tanks are dirty on the outside as well. Argh. Tomorrow we're doing water changes and I will try to clean them up to get some nice pictures.

Have you ever noticed that some water stains are invisible to everything but a camera?! LOL! You got some nice shots, gorgeous fish - and those new ropes really seem to have settled in quickly. I'd love to see some video of those little puffers coming out for their dinner, if you get the time whilst enjoying the laid-back time before the holiday :)

I bought a 20 pack of AAs today (the camera isn't that hard on batteries, but I need them for toys too.) so I'll make a video of them feeding tomorrow night.

We're doing water changes tomorrow morning so the tank should look a little better than it does now.
