I'm soooo jealous! Some time I'm going to decorate a sorority with fake flowers. :D That would be SO cute!

That is a really good point..... he was never very active.. kinda shy too. Hm...

Well, I read on UB that the petco near me is now selling HMPKs. :D Muhahahaaa

That does sound awesome! It'll look great once its done, especially since you;'re decorating it.

I've always wanted a reptile too, but I couldn't because 1. my mom has a full blown snake phobia, and hates other reptiles 2. I also can't feed live food...or frozen mice.

Not that this has anything to do with anything, but I actually saw a colored King betta! It was creamish and red! And there was this cute, young double-tail all white, transparent fins there that had a nice hue of purple in a certain light...I'm going back tomorrow probably... :D

Code, when will this tank be done? I'm anxious for photos. Even though I'm not too fond of snakes, I still like to see people's photos of them. (My brother decided to put a garter snake in my lunch box when I was 5...needless to say they still make me worrisome)

The tank will probably be decorated tomorrow x3 Once I'm going with this, we're not stopping. Good news is is that there's a place we can get Aspen for even cheaper! It'll be five bucks for a 45-lb bag :D Compared to the eight bucks for a .... 3 pound bag? Yeah, they jipped us in the pet store.
So my mom'll be looking around for that, and then I'll head out to find some logs I can bake tomorrow... and then it's just decorating. It might take an extra day or two to get the divider up, but it'll DEFINITELY be decorated :D

Nice.
Well I bought the biggest one that petco has for $8 too. But it'd be different for snakes. I've had Tegan since October and still haven't gotten through one bag, and that's changing her bedding every week and giving her generous amounts to burrow in.

Geez! I go through a bag whenever I clean the tanks, which is about once a month :P

Well, all is done for tonight. Tomorrow will be a long day in school, though, since my mind will undoubtedly be back home.

I caved a stuck a flower in Raek's cage <3 I would put one in Aris', but he's only got a 5.5 gallon, and he's already plant over-loaded as it is xD

How big do their tanks need to be when they're fully grown?
