“I found a place where they could never hurt you
A place where everyday is Halloween
A lovely state of mind where we can run free
Let’s bring back the colors then take our picture
This coffin meant for you and me
We’ll sing to the others and dance in pictures
We’ll live again for everyone to see”— I Am Ghost, “They Always Come Back”
So the cycles in my two filtered tanks have finally completed, and now I have full bacterial colonies helping break down waste.. pretty cool, actually.
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what to do with myself.. I wanted to transfer schools and go into professional writing, but I’m not sure if I want that anymore. I feel so indecisive. Part of me, though, really and honestly wants to work with fish now. Everything is coming really easily to me, and I love it.
So I had asked my mom offhandedly if she would buy me the equipment for my new goldfish tank as my christmas-in-advance, and she agreed. o.O Lumbering around petco.com getting everything together now, hahahaha.
Decided to give all eight hermits to the woman from Massachusetts.. the woman that wanted my Ecuadorians never emailed me back, and after realizing that THIS woman is a moderator on the HCA website I feel comfortable rehoming my small brood with her. The crew is getting dropped off tomorrow morning, meeting her in West Hartford. I’m a little sad thinking of it, but at the same time I’m so happy that an experienced crabber who will care for them was willing to adopt them.
After they go, spending time cleaning the tank out, getting ready for goldies… I’m getting black moors. :D
that my bettas love me more than anything else on the planet (except food, maybe). even nettle, who was pissed at me for putting him in a quarantine tank still follows me around the tank when I move and chases my fingers when I stick them in the water.
whoever says they’re “just fish” obviously never owned ones like I have.
I’m sort of sad, but it’s alright.. the six PPs are going to a woman and her husband that have a 125 gallon tank, and the two Ecuadorians are going to someone who has free space for them in her tank. Haven’t set up dates for them to be picked up yet, but at least people were interested in taking them. I was sort of worried that no one would want them.
Now all I have to do is fix Nettle’s tail rot, ugh.
so I’m not gonna get snails, I think.. I’m actually going to rehome my hermits ( ): ) and get a pair of goldfish instead. I love my hermits to pieces, and I’ve been giving them care, but I’m sure that someone else can provide more for them then I have been.
makes me a little sad, but I’ve had them for a year and a half and they’ve given me nothing but smiles. going to covert their tank into a goldfish tank.. apparently the breed I want grows to 8”+. o.O
