Moved Post 1 to here:

My JBJ 3G arrived today much to my husband's dismay. :P Leak tested and repacked it. Now I just wait for Monday to take it to work! I'll be shopping for sand and LR during my lunch break. :lol:

For now. I'm still figuring out what I want to do vs. what I can actually do since this will be on my desk at work.

My office is so boring! I had to be the trendsetter. When I started I got a betta for my desk. Now 3 other people have bettas so I have to do something different! :lol: I help take care of all the bettas because they let them get all funky. I change my betta water every week and refuse to let him get dirty. :D

Such a good fishie momma! ;)

 

Just OCD! I make my kids 'play' in the tub every night so that I don't have sticky little fingers all over me during story time! :lol: My poor dog gets a lot of baths too! Now if only I could get my hubby to bathe his stinky mutt!

 

See? She says, "Please mom, not again!"

I tried to get authorization to have an aquarium at work... apparently its not 'appropriate' to have an aquarium in a prison. :/

I thought pets were supposed to be soothing to the prisoners or something like that. ;)

I don't know how therapeutic fish would be but it's more the case that once you let one person have something then what's stopping others now that there is a precedent. It's not a security issue since my office has no inmate contact and it's probably one of the most secure offices in the place.

I wish I had no inmate contact! I feel like I work in the asylum most days! My tank is there to soothe me so I don't lose it on one of the morons I work with!

Thanks! I do like the tank. The silicone seal isn't perfect but it will be mostly hidden anyway so I don't care.

 

My dog is full grown now. She was about half grown in the picture. She's a mini doxie so she's only about 6-7 pounds. :D

Decided to change up my plans. I ordered some different live rock and it should be here today. I emptied the tank, put in my sand and then refilled with fresh SW. Now I just wait for it to clear and my rock to arrive!

What powerhead is that? Looks significantly smaller than a Hydor240 and I like the directional output...looks perfect for flow in these smaller tanks. Mind telling me what it is?

Hydor Pico 300. I found it at the LFS pretty cheap. ;)

My tank is there to distract me so I don't get any work done or hear the words coming out of some of the morons I work with!

I wish I could have a Pico at work, the people there don't want fish so they are letting the ones we have suffer. I gave them extra water last week as I couldn't look at it any more. Poor fishes.
