First of the Fishies!!!
Well we took a sample of the tank water in today to see if it was safe for fish and it was!!!! So we got a few fish to start off with.
We got 5 tiny shirmp that are not more than 1 inch long. 3 are red, 1 is sort of a tanny yellow and the 5th is hiding so well we can't see him! We have yet to name them.
We got 1 dwarf frog who is swimming like crazy all around the tank right now and trying to hide under the bottom feeders. hehehe We named the frog Speedy.
We got 2 guppies to start, a yellow one with black spots and another that has a light yellow head with dark blue body and tail. The yellow one we named Spot (I call him Spotty) still have to name the yellow and blue one.
We got a blue gourami and named him stitches. He seems to get along with the guppies. Really he just ignores them and wanders around to do his own thing.
The two bottom feeders we got I am not sure of their name. They look a little like a plecostimes (spelling?) but they are very pale in color with a much longer tail, thinner body and they don't get much more then 6-7 inches. We named them Statler and Waldorf (the names of the two old men on The Muppet Show hehehe).
Next week we will go and get a few more to fill in the tank a bit more, it still looks empty right now but there is some life in it!
