Yes! Come help! Would you mind picking BWG up on your way, too? We'll need someone tall enough to reach the bottom of the tank, I think... ~.^
Willow is supposed to move in at some point, too - as long as we take her shopping and let her play with the toads, I'm sure she'll help.
. . .and Jen is a PHENOMENAL cook, so food should be covered! ^__^

We are going to have to do a bit more work on the stand, before it's ready to go. . .
Hmmm, I have some pics of it from autumn, it's come along since then, but I'll try to dig those up so you can get a general idea.
Currently, it's hidden behind a pile of wood, just waiting for the weather to break so we can go outside to get the stuff cut up and get to staining!
COME ON SPRING!!!

I need a taller person to help me out with weekly maintenance, wanna stop by here first? :3 Hard to get to my back corners without bumping my nets. Near to my neck in water just getting to the bottom normally. LOL

What a pretty shrimp! :3 I do so adore shrimp. I wish I could take photos like that. Mine always come out smeary or odd. Some come out good, but awesome ones, like that one I had of Capone...actually that one I had of Capone I have never been able to replicate. lol

Chesh gets all the awesome things. =P <3

I have some ghosts and oddballs I think are Yamato/Amano Shrimp, but they don't look right...black eggs and some brown coloring on them, but their faces say ghost and Amanos are usually more round-faced.

Love to get pictures, but HA! They're ghosts for a reason, see-through and hard to find. =P Well, I have a few in my breeder, oddly enough they seem to survive better when kept in a net than in my tanks, think it may be from old fertilizers or root tabs I no longer use. o-o; Wonder if that'll ever leave the place.

My camera is also broken, I can't get it to connect so I can upload them on the comp. T___T Which sucks because I had some great photos of my new tetras and my Blue crayfish, and of course my ferrets to share with you guys. T^T

Thanks everyone!
These little babies are tough to capture, I'm thrilledto have gotten a clear snap - it was a total lucky shot!

Knuggs - you can use the image on your for sale threads, if you want - they came from you, after all *GRINS*

We're just thrilled by these guys - I've never kept shrimp before, I hope they do well. . .we have one berried already - and it looks like two will be joining her soon. They settled right in and are SO much fun to watch.
LOVING these little guys! ^___^

Are you and Jess really whining about reaching the bottom of your tanks ???!? .. Ehhemmm .. I have to resort to tossing kids in the tank ATM .. And even then a step ladder for me to lift them in.

heehee, I will NEVER whine about going swimming with my fishies! ^__^
I'm one of those weirdos who loves water changes and tank maintenance. As is, I wear a wifebeater (and a scuba mask :P) when I play in the 55 - 125 isn't going to be *that* much deeper, I can rock it ^__^

I take back what I said before - I now have TWO blues berried! *WOOTS*
I'm gonna have to break out my camera tonight and see if I can convince one of the girls to hold still enough for me to snag another lucky shot - having WAY too much fun with this tiny 5.5g to even think about the 125 right now :P
