  1. Around Christmas time my local quilting shop had a deal that was too good to pass up on a Husqvarna Diamond. It's my precious baby! Anyways, I've been playing with it. I thought you guys might appreciate the awesomeness of this design.

  2. So after my two big orandas died last year my tank has been looking somewhat empty with the 4 guys I have in there now. I was keeping my eye on the auction but really didn't want to spend quite that much money. So I thought I'd look into raingarden..... but I didn't really want to spend that much money either. But I was down south this weekend to visit the boyfriend again and went on the required trip to Allfish Emporium (formerly a Big Al's). To my delight they had three beautiful babies I ended up bringing home with me today. Please forgive the dirty tank shots. I didn't wipe down that side and I just fed them a little gel food before I took the shots.

    This is Fanty. With the beautiful lipstick swatch.

    And this guy, I haven't picked out a name for him yet.

  3. Hah! I caught several good shots of my elusive little monsters. And a video of one of them being super cute!

    This guy is Oreck. I can only differentiate him from the other 2 because of his bristles. The other 2 don't have them yet. I think they're younger.

    And this guy is Kirby. The other one's name is Dyson.

  4. No, Merlin died about a month ago. That's the new purple guy I got from the goldfish connection auction, Grim. I just really need to remake my siggy. Sadly, I've lost all of those fish now. :cry1

  5. I've been so busy I haven't posted in a while. I found my girl betta dead about a month or so ago and I've gotten a new betta for that tank. A dark blue/black body with brilliant red fins with hints of green in them. He's a "double tail/half-moon" (I think pet*co has started breeding mutt bettas.....but he does look really cool). His name is Hannibal an he inhabits my Fluval Chi tank. He also really enjoys hiding from me. So here are some shots of the newly redecorated glowing, green, betta paradise and the hiding Hannibal.

    I also found my poor Razz dead a couple of weeks ago. But I've replaced him with another beautiful newbie. A big, plakat half-moon in an iridescent green mother of pearl color with maroon colored fins and tail. His name is Xerxes. And he likes to show off for the camera, as seen with the pouty face.

  6. I decided to do some redecorating in my goldie's tank. I've gotten so into plants in my other tanks and over time I've gotten to know a bit about them. I have some kind of love affair with Anubias...seriously...I can't get enough of it. Anyways, I was playing around on aquabid the other day and found "Anubias mother plants". The idea hit me that these are probably large and healthy enough that they can stand up to some nibbling by my piggies. I'm not done with the decorating yet, but just the addition of these couple plants makes the tank look so much better.

  7. :druel That is one seriously gorgeous fish. That color! And those chubby cheeks!

    Why not go for a Halloween name? I got Salem, my black ranchu, right at Halloween last year, and I wanted him to have a kind of "spooky" name, partly because he's black and partly because of the season.

    So, let's see, Halloween-ish names could be:

    Boo

    Jack or Jack-o-Lantern

    Raven

    Spooky

    Elvira (if he turns out to be a girl)

    Voo Doo

    Munster

    Gomez (Addams)

    Morticia ("")

    I love this time of year!

    Ah! You gave me an idea! I think his name shall be Grim.....and when I feel like it.... Grimey. :whatjust:

  8. So, I still miss my two big puppy faces but finding these guys just made my day the other day. OMG! They're so cute and tiny. :heart

    I got 2 for my big tank and 1 for my tropical tank. Their names are Kirby, Dyson, and Shark.

    Also, how should I disinfect pieces of pvc pipe? I got a pipe and cut off a couple pieces cause I heard that the bn's are crazy about them.
