My wife & I were in Lancaster, PA & stopped by ThatFishPlace so I could p/u some dry goods....& I saw these:



So, 2 of them came home w/ me, & I'm pretty damn sure they are a pair, as I bought the biggest & smallest ones in the tank. They are already eating like hogs & seeking territories. I hope they will one day look like this:

Tell ya what.....if I get them to breed one day, you got some fry. I know the tank is a wee bit small now,(& they are TINY) but I will get a bigger tank....& I know a LOT of people say that, but I'm just gonna put $20 a week away in a shoebox or something, & get a 90 or a 125. I got them for $12 apiece w/ the online coupon...my wife bought one & then I got one, as the coupon is only good for one fish per household, blah, blah, blah. And they were giving free samples of Hikari pellets & algae wafers.

I know Cris has a pair, only 90mins west of me. He isnt around much anymore. Just prayin he posts up some day with the good news. I got an empty 135, filters ready to go, and I just keep prowlin around looking for something cool. RTM, Carpintis and Festae are tops of my wish list, cant find any without going thru US suppliers. Shipping and border fees alone are over 400 to get from Rapps.... cant justify the expense. I patiently keep lookin.

Yup, that way when I buy it, my wife can't argue that I spent "our" money on another fish tank....NO, I spent MY money!! :evil: :evil:

But, I will have to get rid of 2 tanks ( both 55 GL), as I simply won't have room!!! Then it will be:

125 = RT Mota pair, 4 CL's, 6 SD, 1 Royal pleco.

75 = Jag

55 = Beani

FYI....I took @ night job to make some xtra cash....so I'm working anywhere from 10 to 30 hours @ night, depending on workload available (& I will take all the hours they throw @ me!!).....my wife takes care of the finances, so I really don't argue when she states "not now"...& times were tight & might be tight again in January (ANOTHER potential shutdown), but when I take my weekly "fun money" & stash it away instead of spending it, that's indeed "my money", & I will brook no argument about it. This will be a long process, but sometimes, you just gotta establish that there will be no argument....this indeed will be MY MONEY, bottom line, end of discussion.
