Thanks for the update - it sounds like your little setups are doing great!!! Three cheers for EXPLODING
growth! WaterSprite DOES
get huge (especially the stuff that came from John >.<) I know it's really common for people who keep WS in tanks to get rid of the bigger pieces, so that the younger can thrive. So thrilled that it's doing so well for you!
You told me about your 'fishing' trip. Girly, I'm just so jealous of you! (wantsDarters)I wish I could go out and just randomly find fish. . . wherever. (wantsSunfish) And plants. And bring them home (wantstocatchthings) . . and grow them in my back yard. In the winter!!!!
You guys have fish living in ditches by the side of the road! *shakes head* I'd never have thought of keeping DG in an outdoor pond (kiddy pool, lol), but it's amazing that you can! Glad to hear that they're doing well, and getting fat, heehee. . .
Excited for your possible future Betta-bucket sorority! It sounds like you're having so much fun over there in your land of eternal summer! Glad the frogs were wise enough to move house, even though this means that their noise is still keeping you up at night - I don't see how this is a problem, since you never seem to sleep anyway! ^.~
Since you're making everyone wait for pictures, I figured I'd go hunt one up myself. . .
LONG LIVE THE SQUIRRELFROGS!!!
Squirrelfrogs, Skunkmonkeys, and quarter-sized mosquitoes. . . I don't see you having a difficult time convincing bats to come live in your backyard! I'm sure you'll get some tenants right away when you set that thing up. (wants a bathouse, toOOoooOOOO!)
Leeches. Ew. . . I was okay with the worm, and totally jealous RIGHT up until you mentioned leeches. *shudder* I do hope you figure out how to get rid of them so you can sell some of your pretty plants, but even if you don't, or choose not to, this is still a fantastically fun project, and well worth it for the experience you've gained! Plus I just like your world. ^.^
