I will start by saying that the thought of a tank in our house was something that we always talked about every now and then but never did because of kids, dog shows, life, ect....

January-September, no fish :(

Mid September, was over at my mothers friends house when she says "you are an animal person, what should I do with these goldfish that my girls won at the carnival that they no longer want?" I didn't even think about it and said "I'll take em, my boys will be thrilled!"

A week later, wondered why fish didn't swim around much (3 comets in a 5 gal) found lots of info on internet but didn't read quite enough and went to local chain store and bought 20 gal tank and another fish.

The following week, found Koko's and found out that 20 gal was not enough. Rehomed comets and left tank empty for a bit.

Maybe a week later, bought adorable moor (Jerry Garcia) and redcap oranda (rutabaga)

A few days later, accidentaly killed rutabaga :(

October 30, Went to LFS and picked out beautiful red oranda (Bob) to come live with Jerry. Fell in love with a beautiful 60 gal tank and stand combo that was on sale.

Early November, obsessed about tank that was on sale and drove my husband NUTS!

Mid November, convinced my mom that I needed that new tank for Christmas and that she should buy now since it was on sale. And she did!

Set the tank up and moved over existing filter and added a new one, crossed my fingers and moved Bob and Jerry over to the new tank.

Maybe a week later I added Louie (oranda) and Binky (calico tele)

Early December, got to take a trip to Preuss pets about an hour away and picked up Tater Tot (lionhead)

That's about it for now :) Everyone seems to be doing great at the moment :)

Gosh...this year was a year of transition. I got my first raingarden fish...Ursula was one of them. I lost her to the terrible ulcer bug. Took drastic measures got rid of my old tank and bought a brand new one and sterilized everything and started over. Lost Walley. Added Ponyo and Calcifer. Then got my first two ever Dandy Orandas fish who will start the process of joining the main tank Monday.

December: Got a red and white ranchu named Ming Chao. Returned Ganondorf for being a meanie poo poo face (shoving and forcing the other two ranchu females to hide)

A few days later, learnt that my tank was more than overstocked, not enough gph for filter too

A few more days later, gets inspired to do something for the sake of my fishes

Nothing happens...

Nothing happens....

... Until one fine day, my godmother come back from work, saying that her colleague would be happy to take in some of my fish (he keeps fishes)

Until now, that hasn't happened yet... praying for the best, hoping to rehome the goldfishes ASAP. :)
