Puppy

Went to Petsmart...

We got some small fish to start out the aquarium. We need to let these guys really kick the natural cycle into gear and then we'll get more fish to populate the tank. Right now we have two pineapple swordtails (One male and one female), a scissortail (I think that's what it's called), and 6 neon tetras.

Once we've had them in the tank for a while, I plan to get more swordtails, and a couple of gourami. I'd also like to get a few more neon tetras. And once algae has established itself, we're going to get a couple of algae eaters.

Right now the tank looks pretty pathetic with just those few fish in it.

I also got a blue betta fish, and it's own tiny hex tank for it. I'll probably put him in with the large tank somewhere down the line. I'm not sure if there's a current in the tank right now, and I wouldn't want to subject him to that if it has one.
