So DH decided last year that he'd like an aquarium for Christmas. I was excited, I've always wanted tropical fish, so we started researching. I wanted to make sure we had a decent tank for the fish and that the conditions would be right.
Bought him a lovely aquarium for Christmas. It's heavily planted, and we have neon tetras, platys, and neon rainbows. Lovely.
The fish DH really wanted was a betta fish, but after tons of research, we realised how difficult it is to house them in a community tank. DH agreed we needed a separate tank for the betta. Special offer + weakness = second tank!
The second tank is now planted and going through fishless cycling in preparation for our betta.
Yesterday, we were due to pick up some shrimp. We already have a couple in our main tank, and we both love them. Then DH notices that some of our newest fish have Ich! Panic, we need to treat them immediately... But treatment for Ich doesn't affect shrimp too well. So we did more research yesterday. We agreed to get a tank to keep the shrimp in until we have finished treating the main tank.
Except instead of getting a cheap tank, we got a bigger, nicer tank, and now we have a shrimp tank!
We're going to be living underwater soon, I want to get a tank of dwarf puffers too!
Please tell me I'm not the only sad act eyeing up the TV and thinking that it's taking up valuable aquarium space!
