    So I accidently killed 2 fish tonight and put a third in trouble. Hopefully it makes it. Got in a hurry taking a few fish out of a tank and somehow put them in a bucket of straight city water with no prime or anything. Feeling like a major idiot right now.

    On another note I am currently trying to move a second batch of ABN fry out of my hectic community tank.

    Okay after a panic attack this morning alls good in the tanks. See gave the wet kittys some new decor and they've had a blast with it the last couple of days when I went to feed this morning not a one in the tank PANIC where in the world did they go since the only roomys are a couple girl brown bn's tipped their new toys over and they were inside BUGGERS other than that picked up a new curvi male for the lil witch since the other one did his job and she wants nothing to do with him!! Got 2 shubikins for the big water trough to keep the skeeters under control, though it was quite fun watching Turkey explain to the girls (horses) they had to share it now with his fish LOL other than that just daily stuff

So this week need to rearrange the fishroom to fit in tht 125 (6 feet), the 240 gal (8 feet) tanks and the 120 (4 feet). The 125 will be set up on Friday.
