Well, officially, nothing has gone right with my aquarium. After waiting weeks to get the filter fixed, then months to get up the will to bust out a piece of glass blocking me from having the filter, and now finally the filter is blocking me from having a cover. Next, I’m sure, the cover will somehow keep me from putting in a light. I don’t know how but it will happen, I promise. I bought the cover anyway, so half of it fits and the other half needs to be trimmed 4 or so inches. Getting a little fed up of not having fish after 4,5? months I’ve just put the fish in anyway. They seem to be happily swimming about or are just merely swimming about. (It’s hard to tell with fish.) Check out my super ghetto set-up:

Like the lamp and the clamp lamp set on the top? I think they’re a nice touch.

Apparently Chocolate House and I have differing ideas on what’s actually a Santa shape:santa-shaped candy

frogHere’s a couple of pictures I’ve taken of my aquarium (in a minute.) I’m kind of sad that I’m losing this one for a larger one (silly) because I’ve finally gotten it looking so nice. Those bulbs from Wal*Mart worked very nicely. The tank is a little crowded because I started growing some in advance for the 105 gallon upgrade. I don’t know what the pink/green plants are called, but I absolutely love them.
The floating boxes are for breeding my Glofish?. The first batch got lost (the box floated under the filter and out came the fish), the second batch was doing pretty well until recently when I lost the last four to a water change [and two to amonia immediately before.] This is group number three and I hope they fare better.
