  1. What a cutie! :)

    I saw your money fish bowl!

    Also...if you have any unnecessary things around the house; try to sell things on Ebay to make a few extra $$$ for a bigger tank!

    I did that so I could buy an additional filter. :)

  2. I told my Dad this morning that Sushii is a Sushiia...he didn't care, LOL! He just likes her size and looks. I think everyone is right about my Dad wanting to participate getting involved, because my Mom wants to get a 55 gallon for her fish, and he tells her right off, NO!

    She has offered to switch tanks...my 55 gallon for her 30 gallon and I said, No. Sushiia is way to big and Chopstix is soon to be joining her.

  3. LOL!

    Well, Lupin you were right! ;)

    This was actually Sushiia's first time ever in the net since getting her two years ago. I always moved her in a bowel. Strange saying "she"....

    Her tail was so blasted long, I couldn't see anything. And she doesn't even like to be touched...so getting in her the net was very rare!

  4. I had the fish net in the fish tank to scoop out some left over food, and Sushii swam inside the net. DUH!

    So I knew this was a rare chance and I scooped him up by the surface and got fish water in my mouth!! I removed his fins just to get a glance at the vent and long and behold....

    Sushii is a GIRL!!!!

    I saw the nub. I quickly let her go and she seems upset. Sorry Sweetie! :(

    I was kind of sad BUT actually happy he is a she! So I wonder if Chopstix is a boy?!

    I got a girl. So he is no longer Sushii but Sushiia!

  5. So my Dad actually likes/cares for Sushii a lot, he's not to sure on Chopstix yet, because she is fairly new to him. He had known Sushii has been sick, so he's been buying everything for him: salt, stress coat, medicine, and food. I'm always at work, so he'll take time out of his day to pick things up.

    Well my Dad found out I removed all rocks from the tank a few days ago and I put a few glass stones in there. Well my Dad comes over to my house today with 10 bags of glass stones for Sushii!

    Blues and greens! My dad was so excited he wanted to put the glass stones in the tank while I did the water change. :heart

    So as I was changing the water, my Dad was putting in the glass stones, and don't worry I boiled them in hot water! My Dad wants to pick up more glass stones and I said I think we have enough.

    He did comment Chopstix is getting bigger...and I said hopefully she can join him in two weeks!

    I told my Dad he should get a few goldies...he'd said no way! I only like yours. :)

    I love my Dad! :heart

  6. I hear silence!!

    I have glass stones scattered on the bottom on the 55 gallon just to give the tank some color. And since I removed all the other rocks, Sushii lets me sleep, and what's even better, he is sleeping too! He doesn't even clean the bottom at night anymore since I removed the rocks.

    He does like to push around the glass stones but that's only when I feed him and food hides under the stones.

    BUT now Chopstix likes to make the smacking noise under her filter at 6 a.m. :D

    So I conquered one problem...but now small fry is doing something new, so I am removing some water from the tank to stop her smacking.

  7. Day 2:

    No sign of ich on either fish. The last time I did a water change on both tanks, and that was Sunday night. Should I do a:

    1. 30% water change on the 20 gallon today?

    2. 30% water change on the 55 gallon today?

    I don't want to stress them out, or should I do it tomorrow now?
