Goldie the Betta - 8/52

Over the weekend Goldie the Betta fish ( named by my 6 year old niece ) got a house upgrade from a gallon and a half vase to a lighted, Fluval Chi 5 gallon tank. With the extra space I decided to get him some guppie friends.  So far he's not being aggressive towards them, but he was chasing them around before they got a chance to settle so he's currently in "time-out" until the guppies get their bearings. I also got a couple of ghost shrimp to see if he will be ok with shrimp - my last betta, Poe, was fine with them, but Jason's betta, Adolf, hunted them down and killed them.  If he plays nice with them I will get some red fresh-water shrimp.  These guys are just the guinea pigs of the tank ( sorry guys )!

This picture is before the guppies were added, but I'll post an update of them all once we see if they will swim in harmony.  In the photo, Goldie is the blue blob hanging out in the bottom right corner.

75 Gallon Saltwater Tank - 7/52

The new saltwater tank is coming along quite nicely!  Jason added in some new rock over the weekend that helped fill it up nicely and gives lots of new nooks and shelves for more corals. We have missed having the saltwater tank and are both happy to have one again. It's fun to sit and look for all the critters that hide in the rock - some we see on a daily basis, others only show themselves here and there.  This isn't a very good photo, but it's the only photo I managed to take, thus it's my project photo for last week.  I'll try to do better this week.  ;)

Snowy Morning - 6/52

Another Kentucky snowy morning, barely. It was gone an hour later.  We've had very little snow this year and most of our days have been in the 50's.  I'm not complaining a bit!
