My family and I made our annual journey to Chicago this weekend for some Windy City fun! The part I was most looking forward to was meeting up with Jared again. We had a great time (or at least I did ). We met for lunch then headed to Old Town Aquarium, the store where Jared just got his large R&W oranda. The store is in the area of Chicago called Old Town hence the name It is an awesome store! They had 2 large black moors in a tank with several small fantails. As Jared discussed the pros and cons of the large showy moors, I was all "Look at the tiny fantails". We stayed a while and I left without a fish . . . well, unless you count this pleco. I met my family at Dave and Busters and told them about the fish. I debated whether or not to go back. "You're already overstocked, Lisa" "You will need to set up another tank if you do it, Lisa" . . . . My family encouraged me to go back (even my husband was throwing out all kinds of possibilities as to where the new tank could go. I think he just wanted me to FINALLY use the stand for my 40B that we got last year in Chicago that's still in the box. Anyway, of course, I decided to get it. (With some encouragement from Aubrey ) I walked back to the fish store and watched for quite a while. There was one I went back for in particular but then as I watched them, there were 2 other calicos that caught my eye. I narrowed it down to one and went for it!! So without further ado, here is my new calico fantail (still no name ). S/he weighs in at a whopping 4.7 g. I've already bored all the subbies with this but I thought I'd bore the rest of the forum.
