Aw, I hate taking fish to the LFS. They always get so stressed. I hope they take good care of them and find them a good home. Good luck! I'm sure your 125G with huge schools of community fish will look awesome.

150 Gallon - Mostly American Cichlids
135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
75 Gallon - Odd couple (Polleni/Angelfish)
55 Gallon - African tank
20 Gallon Long - QT
10 Gallon - Empty

I just got back! It was horrible trying to catch 9 fish. The biggest Front jump out of my net and I was like crying and gosh, he is huge and slippery.


I could not get to the LFS fast enough. They gave me $198 for my fish ~ store credit, or you can take 1/2 cash.

I got lots of plants! No fish yet ~ tomorrow!

Thank you!

Yes and no. They are not just fish. You have slaved for these beautiful facinating slippery little creatures for a very long time and it is ok to feel what you were feeling!! But, you obviously had a reason to decide to get out of cichlids, and it was time. So after they shocked you with the total cash/credit, and you did a little happy dance over it, lol, I hope you wandered around for a bit like a kid in a candy store!! You said you bought some plants and I imagine tonight you are planting them. Did they have everything on your fish list/wish list you are looking for? and what will you be picking up tomorrow?

Oh, I am glad you didn't forget me! My tank is complete! I just sat down. It was strange to aquascape a tank without apologizing every second!

I bought a light with two bulbs ~ very nice and OMG. It is just what I have been looking for, for months!

Hard to believe I have almost $200 worth of plants and decor in this ~ Should I take a picture? I didn't really look at the fish because I just wanted to concentrate on plants.

Tomorrow I will get fish if my readings are okay in the morning. I am so excited! Nervous as hell though. I think I will just get a big school of something. You always lose some, right?

Yes, take pics! We love pics, in case you haven't already noticed, lol.
And no, you don't "always" lose some!

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
