Finished Set-Up =D

i had to get Bagel a filter cos a rediculously thick protien film kept developing on her water. afte a partial water change and a couple hours with the filter, its pretty much completely gone. but yeha, getting a filter shouldnt be too difficult right? wrong! took me like four days to get everything up and running. i had to get a surge board to plug everything into and i needed to get a 15 foot extention wire. then i found out my outlet doesnt have ground plugs, it only has two prong sockets so i had to get a ground converter. when that was all good i duct taped the extention wire around my closet door. all i needed was the filter. which took me three days to get. everywhere was out of the 3i whisper filter. they had every size but that one XD. i only got it cos the manager at pet co was having someone from another store drive in some dog food and he got the guy to drive in a 3i filter too. kept it int he office for me so no one would take it =D

but anyway, i feel like posting pictures of my set up now cos i feel very accomplished after four days of total rediculousness.

i had to re-do the tape in one corner cos it came loose. thats why the wire looks so droopy XD

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

I really like the Sabre Tooth Tiger skull in the tank! It looks great. And ditto for me on Bagel appreciating your efforts.

I'm sure Bagel will love you for it. Or maybe just be a little less grumpy for a while :)

This is the song that never ends...

the weird thing was, bagel was never any less active or grumpy-ish when the protien film was there. although she prolly is happier now that its easier to eat and breathe.

haha thanks i love that skull. its all rawr!
it makes an awesom cave. my fish seems to enjoy swimming in and out of the various holes in it =)

Looks like a nice home for a little betta. I'm planning on getting a betta sometime later this year and I'm getting a T-Rex skull for his tank.

That painting on the wall, did you paint that from a magazine? I just threw away an issue of... well I can't remember that had that exact little weird squid thing on it.
