I think you're right, considering my MOTHER just stopped by and gave me a couple of cigs for later, lol! Oh, I FAIL at quitting!!! Never tried Chantix - that stuff is $$$! Did Wellbutrin once, long ago - it gave me migraines, and I STILL smoked after. BONUS? The migraines NEVER WENT AWAY. SO I'm avoiding all drugs. I think you're right. Cold turkey cuz' you just found out you're pregnant is ONE thing, doing it 'just for fun?' not so much. I'm a fiend, tho!!! I'm thinking about maybe making my husband 'dole' them out to me, get down to 6 a day for a week or two, then 5, and so on. You're doing SOOOOOO GREAT!!! I'm super proud of you! LMAO at the brownies shot - the only problem is that. . . I ALWAYS want to smoke when I finish eating, lol! I just FAIL at being a quitter *hangs head* I'm gonna, tho. I HAVE to!!! And... there is a big part of me that really IS ready to finally give it up. I think IF I can cut it one more time, it'll be for good. . .

I didn't want to quit when I started knew I had to but am glad at this point that I did just stop altogether Cold turkey and all! The first day was a real B..... the second wasnt fun either. The 3rd was a a lil better that was yesterday. Today I woke up feeling pretty good! Can't tell ya the last time I woke feeling good. Today so far I have had small cravings for a cig. nothing major though. Kinda like I just smoke and I am debating another one or not. At those time if I found myself having a debate over it then I didn't need it.

Ohh the after meal smokes were the best! Along with just waking smokes, and some others I can't say on the forum. lol I will miss them ......

Yeah that would be great! I just don't have that kinda willpower! I tried that once thinking well I will just smoke half as much as I was before. For about a week I think I smoked about 8 or so a day and that was it. Over the course of a month or more I went back to a pack a day.

Soo all or nothing for me lol. My wife is doing good too. I don't think she is wear a patch either. I think she stopped wearing them on Saturday were as I stopped wearing them on Friday.

Okay guys it been awhile since I updated this thread! Sorry!!
So now its update time well just on two of my tanks. The other one will have to wait till tomorrow.

I will start with my Puffer tank since that's what this thread is suppose to be about. LoL

Nothing has really changed in this tank. Some of the plants have grown some and that's about as exciting as it gets. WooHoo!! LMAO......

So here are some pics of the tank taking tonite about 2 hours ago.













Here are my poor pathetic Dwarf Sagittaria. I think I have had this plant for umm almost a year. I started out with 2 plants I think Yeah 2!!

Now look how many I have! Yeah in a freaking years time! This plant freakin HATES ME !! LoL but at least its not dead I guess. Seriously Y'all who have this plant probably throw that much away in a weeks time! Not sure why it hates my tank soo much????



This is my Water Sprite now I just put this in this tank about 2 weeks ago I think now. I could be wrong here and not thinking about this right. I know I got 2 plants about a month ago maybe a little longer but I am thinking I put both of those in my Scarlet Badis tank. YEAH I did as I just put this plant Yes thats one plant that has doubled or split or whatever in 2 weeks or however long its been since I filled the this tank up all the way cause thats when I put this plant in there.


I couldn't get on decent pic of the Puffer this go around. LoL the lil bugger wouldn't hold still.



Now here is my "Snail" tank...... Yeah......ummmmm
Not just snails anymore..... LoL
I found this white Betta at Petco on Valentines day that I had to have!






Sorry these are some REALLY REALLY BAD PICS!!!






Some of the "Crypts" I bought. I say "Crypts cause this plant was labelled this way but I am not sure if it is or not???














The snails,... LOL Also the rest of these pic were taken shortly after I put the Betta into the tank on Thursday night.




















Okay well I think that's enough for tonight. I plan on updating the Scarlet Badis tank tomorrow. Though there hasn't been much changed in that tank either other then I have had taken Water sprite out of the tank to put in the Puffer and the "Snail" tank. That's about it. LoL

WHOOOOOOOOOO! That was an update!!!

I love your Betta... he's gorgeous! And he looks healthy, nice fins and everything. . . Is his name Cupid, because I *might* be in love ;) He looks so BRIGHT in that snail tank. . .I bet your little one loves him! You guys don't have any other Betta fish, do you? Congratulations on the new arrival - I don't think I've ever seen a snow-white betta before. He looks like he's loving all of the space he has in that tank. :)

Don't feel bad about the dwarf Sag, mine doesn't like me, either. I have a few pieces that are doing just fine, but. . . they're just. . . there, lol! They don't spread like everyone else's do for me, either. As long as it stays alive, it's fine with me!

HUZZAH for CRYPS! Gah, I love them. . . looks like a lovely little C.Wendtti on the bottom shots - I have this plant in the 'brown' form, and it is, hands-down, my favorite plant. The ones in the first shots look like Cryptocoryne pontederifolia to me, that's just a guess - whatever they are, they're gorgeous!

What are you doing to make your WaterSprite spread so quickly! I want the secret - spill!

Your lotus is looking nice and happy in there, too!

lol Isn't adding fish to your snail tank what caused you to have to set up a new snail tank? Very pretty betta though! They always look so sad in those little cups. I know that me projecting, but still.

I tried watersprite one time and it looked nothing like that. Most of it died right away. The rest was one stem that just grew long, but didn't have leaves like your's. I couldn't even get the thing to grow roots! Good job on that.

I've never tried dwarf sag. I did throw some pygmy chain sword in my grandmother's tank when I was setting that up for her. That seems to be growing pretty well even super shaded by floaters.

Tanks look great!

LoL Jes.
This is the only Betta we have. We had one years ago but yeah that's another story altogether that I won't get into. It will also so be the only betta we will have. Just one at a time. No dividing tanks to make room for more. He is in a 10gallon and its all his. lol He doesn't have a name. You know I don't name my fish or animals. LoL the stray puppy we have now is still being called "Puppy".
I have never seen a white betta in stores before now. I have seen them online all the time. So when I saw this one I had to get it. My wife fell in love with it as soon as she saw it too. My daughter likes it but I think my wife and I lone it more. My daughter had all but lost her interest in fish. She likes helping feed them but that's about it.

I have always Loved Crypts!!! To me there isn't an ugly one out there! Though to me they look their absolute best in their emersed form!!!! I looked last night at pics and asked BWG and I think y'all are right about it being a Pontederiifolia. I couldnt find another that looked close to it in pics. So I am going to go with that.

The water sprite ummm yeah.. :/
I don't have a secret! LoL I bought a small plant at a LFS about umm a couple of months ago. The same time I bought my Blackworms. It took forever to settle in but damn when it did it wasn't stopped growing. I honesty don't do much with it. I even forget to does the puffer tank with fertilizer and its still had done that. Oh and you think the root system on the plant in the puffer is big just wait till you see the roots on the "mother" plant of water sprite I have in my Scarlet badis tank. I will get some pica of that and post them later.
