  1. Just wanted to say hi to everyone. I haven't been here in a few years. I haven't had a tank set up for the last 5 years or so, and now my 6 year old daughter is begging me to start it back up. I had 2 fancies before that earned me a breeder's medal (LOL)...but I consider myself a total newbie in this hobby. I am trying to brush up on my skills by reading as much as I can, and I saw that the board needs more subscribers and donations...planning to help in that area as much as I can. Hope you have all been well. I have no idea how to navigate this new platform. Hopefully, I can find the old LOTP? Or Subscribers forum...and I've got to remember all of the keyboard shortcuts for the emojis.
  2. Veeery comfy! One hip has been bothering me from some unplanned running over the weekend, and it didn't hurt on this mattress! Slept about like normal as far a night time waking, just way more comfortable. A little hot this morning though... Should be nice in the winter? Uh oh, husband says Too soft. Hopefully he will come to love it and I won't have to return it! But I really love it. Sent using Tapatalk My hip is killing me too I wonder if a new bed would help I'm glad you're happy with it Do you sleep on your side? If you keep a pillow between your knees that can help some. I sleep so weird, on my stomach with legs all over the place and I worry that it's going to damage my knees eventually. I've been getting PT, she recently told me to get a body pillow for 1) to prevent from sleeping on my belly and 2) when on my back to slip under my knees and 3) put between my knees when on side. I like it a lot but it's really hot How's your hip doing? Last July I started having hip pain out of the blue…no injury. It went on for months unit l I couldn't stand it. Saw an orthopedic surgeon friend, and I agreed to a steroid injection…then I did 6 weeks of PT. It really helped. No pain. Although I can still tell it's not totally perfect…I usually only notice that when I'm exercising. I like the body pillow too! The body pillow was what made us move from a queen bed to a king!! My husband felt like he was sleeping with another person in between us. :rofl
  3. It felt like it went by really fast. I did enjoy it a lot! My boys (5 and 8) saw it with my Mom and LOVED it! Now the younger one is begging me to keep buying Honey Nut Cheerios because he wants to collect all of the SLOP toys in the boxes. I guess that really does work to sell cereal.
  4. Helloooooo! So….I got an email about a raffle…
  5. We didn't but we should. Actually I think we might name him Jimmy. I was thinking Jimmy Garopollo, Tom Brady's insanely hot backup quarterback. https://images.search.yahoo.com/search/images;_ylt=A0LEVxOEOkNWipYANR1XNyoA;_ylu=X3oDMTEyZThuaG0yBGNvbG8DYmYxBHBvcwMxBHZ0aWQDQTAyMDFfMQRzZWMDc2M-?p=Jimmy+Garoppolo&fr=yfp-t-901-s Colin thought I meant Harbaugh, Michigan's new football coach. Yeah, Harbaugh, we'll go with that. What, is that guy ,the Property Brother's little brother?! Love the new little guy!! Impulse shopping is the best!!
  6. That is really interesting….and i thought it was due to the sun exposure. Always learning….
  7. What, what, what??? A Mom's raffle! I'm in! At the moment, I've got one recovering from a tonsillectomy, another with Hand Foot & Mouth (that he calls…head, hand, and toe ), and a sweet but fussy 5 month old. and all at the same time!
  8. LOVE this!!!! I miss Seinfeld so much! Guess I could just watch re-runs.
  9. :rofl Betta was all I knew. Need to look up dwarf puffer…are they cute?!?
  10. Thanks so much for all of the replies! This is the big one that I didn't think about! I don't pay a portion of the utilities so this could be an issue. That along with some sort of tragic tank leak are my two biggest concerns right now. I think this might keep me from doing this. Hinfin, mine also have spawned in the spring time, and subsequently I raised fry. I would not want to worry about this at the office. See…this is exactly what I was thinking! Fun, stress reliever, something to do when not crazy busy. I love this part of it! It would be so cool to have a tank in the waiting area, but I would be scared to do it. You should see how out of control some of the kids are out in the waiting room. We are lucky they don't burn the place down. Plus, it would definitely make maintenance have to be done after hours. Where as, in my private office space I could do it if I had a spare 30 min here or there. Rob, this might be the ticket if I decide I just want a small tank at work. I think I could go with a 5g tank and put something in it besides GF, and it wouldn't be an issue with the water bill. It could just sit on my desk and keep me company. I know nothing about any other fishes besides goldies. What would be a good choice for a very small tank?? Yes, yes, yes! Our 29g is secured to the wall in our office at home. But even with anchorage I wouldn't trust it in our den/family room. We have a 6 year old that loves to climb..a 3 year old that copies the 6…and a new baby on the way. Maybe if I had a 40 g breeder that seemed more stable (shorter with a broader footprint) I would feel safer. But, our 29g feels like the Sears Tower that could turn into the leaning tower of Pisa. I think I'm leaning now towards leaving them at home, and maybe getting something to put in my tiny 5g tank. Also, it would be cool to find something super sturdy and get the fish moved into our den.
