well a little about myself...i turned 18 yesterday. yay! and for my birthday i was given a small rat, as said before to replace my other, Fluffles, who died.
RIP Fluffles. i fell in love with his tawny head and white body


...anyways. here is Blue. my new baby.

not the best of pictures, but he is not very photogenic. he looks a bit bluer in person so my sister called him Blue. dum dum dum

other pets i have:
3 cats: Smokey, MIttens, and Cali
a dog: Buster
dwarf hammys: Coconut and Delilah
Fish: 75g community, 55g discus, 58g reef, 55g oscar, 29g community, 12g reef, 3-1g's for bettas

i love fish :)
i also work at a pet story and agree that most of the time they dont know what thier talking about, but i work in aquatics and can swear by the fact i say tell no lies and dont give advice if i dont know about the fish or item.
so ya...thats some about me i guess.

here are some pictures...cause i know everyone loves pictures :)

Smokey, my bottle baby. and the devil-cat

What beautiful pets you have! I'm a fish luver myself but have only an empty 5.5 gal and am working on restoring my mom's 55 gal. How much time do you spend on taking care of all those tanks?! lol. They're absolutely stunning!

You have very nice artwork too. I LOVE that dragon, it's something I would try to draw!

erm...i have no idea. spend about an hour on each tank a night. feeding, cleaning, uprighting fallen corals or plants. making sure all fish are accounted for and healthy...

what kind of restoring are you doing on the 55g, lostbutnotforgot??

and the dragon took me like 4 hours to do...they are defintely not my for-te in art

I'm just adding some fish and plants to my mom's old 55g (changing out lights so the plants will grow, redecorating). It's up and running, but the fish in it (black skirt tetras) are older than old and I'd like to see some more life in the tank. I would like to just fill it with neons, but my sister wants different types of fish so we'll see what sort of community tank it turns out to be. :D

Pretty bettas! I do the fish/rat combo too (which I sure is common), but all I have is a crowntain betta and a 10g with white clouds and ghost shrimp. Nothing too exotic, not like your gorgeous setups! Welcome!
