You drop a piranha in there, and THAT'S a blog post.

Which makes me wonder, what's the plural for fish? Fishes?
I love quiet pets :)

Mike *chuckle*

quiet pets are the best. until you have to clean the tank. or until they have 1,000 babies and suddenly start ravenously tearing into each little body until you can somehow catch the parents and separate them.

worse than hamsters.

but less messy.

are the little plastic castles a suprise everytime?

they look desperate for escape.

Beth- Imagine there's no toilet, it isn't hard to do.

ikeMay- Yeah, and I'd be permanently typing one-handed after cleaning the tank.

3sth3r- Plural for fish is 'handroll'

Crystal- Hampsters are awesome.

Mimi- I'm sorry, I forgot what I was going to say.

ESC- Ungrateful bastards.

Do you think every time the run in to each other they introduce themselves?

OS- Frank was just asking what's new. Was he? Yeah, uh huh. Hey look, Howard's being eaten. Is he? Makes you think, doesn't it? I mean, what's it all about? Beats me.

cichlids?

Yellow labs?

Do you know if they're boys or girls or one of each?

 
At 10:46 AM, Blogger tinyhands said...

J- Yes, yes, no. (I think they're still too small to sex.)

I love cichlids. They are fun to watch because they actually have some sort of personality to observe...they don't just swim around.

I see they're fighting over who gets the corner part of the tank with the view?

Okay, so the hamster video cracked me up. I watched it about 14 times. I need help.

 
At 10:06 PM, Blogger tinyhands said...

Leese- Agreed. Much better than dirty old goldfish.

DCTL- I love the slo-mo

*shudder* fish creep me out.

Hmmm. With mine I could tell what gender they were around 4 months. The male's dorsal fin became defined dramatically to a point. Don't know if all cichlids are that way, though.

Of course, you know I'm a total cichlid freak. :P

Bright-one: The only thing worse is being up before 6AM.

J- I bow to your expertise. As these are fish-store purchases I don't know their age with any certainty. Both have dark markings but a slightly rounded dorsal. They're only about 1.25"

My one and only interesting domesticated fish story:

Jethro and I bought a couple when we were living in sin. One of them had babies and managed to squirt them out behind the backdrop where neither she nor the other fish could get at them. After that they were very dull company and we released them shortly after I was made an honest woman.

Z- Yes, most species are rendered boring by their offspring.

That is a horrifying truth
