Guinea pigs are neat! We used to have a couple of Texels, Peaches, & his son, Twinkle. Our current pets besides the fish are a couple of mice, a cat, a dog, & 23 bantam chickens.

Before we moved to town, I used to breed livestock, & I usually had 2 dozen Shetland Sheep, 3 Angora goats, 200 chickens, geese, ducks, pheasants & turkeys, & 8-10 dogs (I ran a pair as flock guardians in each pasture, plus had some growing pups & retirees).

Shetland sheep are my favorite. Mt sister spins wool and is in the middle of a breedstudy. She has spun over 200 different breeds and fiber types.

Man, that sounds so awesome. . . all those animals. . . I'd kill for a dog. We have a texel rex cross currently, for a guinea pig. His name is Teddy and he is 2 i think.

I took a couple of shots from the top when I was changing water the other day - it's Clownie, the Great White Fish! (he's the biggest of the 4, & I think he's 5 inches, including tail.) I had to use a flash, since I had the filter & light off.

Thanks! It's National Geographic brand sand & the same brand gravel mixed (2:1), with a few of those glass accent decorations. I hear sand described as rather "floaty" a lot, but this sand doesn't seem to be floaty at all - I did rinse it, but there's been no problems with cloudiness, & it seems to stay put well (so it doesn't get in the filters). It comes in either black & white. The gravel I like for a little variegation, & it seems to help anchor the rooted plants.

Lotus is just angling for the 1st bite. :) Although, he does look a bit like a fish & seaweed sandwich here...

Ack - I haven't been on a camp out sleeping on the ground for 27 years. I forgot how hard the ground is. The S'mores beforehand were good, though.

I've never been camping camping, but once we stayed at a campground in nc with a waterpark. We slept in this really cool log cabin and there was a loft above the living room that my sister and i stayed in. It was a boatload of fun.

Monet understands seaweed, which is a relief. The only other gf I've had that understoof it was Kappa. The others just got confused lol.

I've broken it up into bit sized pieces and dropped them in -mine figured it out quickly that way.

I also incorporated a couple of nori sheets in my my gel food.

:idont   I use unsalted YamaMotoYama brand sushinori 100 Half Sheets.  

 

Chelsea was explaining that sometimes the fish need to see the alpha fish (or other fish) eat it before they "risk" eating it.
