Collection Complete

While I’m gone to Nebraska, my classroom aquarium will be unattended. I got an automatic fish feeder. It can be programmed to feed the fish up to four times a day. I’ve programmed it for two.

The container of the feeder is too big for how much food I had. I decided to pick some up from the aquarium store. While I was there, I looked at the fish. I wasn’t going to buy any, but they had albino corydoras catfish. Dang. I had to buy them. I’ve been looking for them.

Now I have bottom dwellers. My aquarium is complete.

The top swimmers are guppies. They are a beautiful gold color. They were swimming too fast for me to get a non-blurry picture.

The reflection in the glass sort of looks like a bare bottom, but it's just my knuckles.

The middle swimmers are neon tetras. I love them. They’re so blue and red and shiny.

They look so cheery to me.

And the bottom swimmers are the corys. I got albinos so they would be highly visible. They also have a nice shimmery sheen, so that’s nice.

The clearest picture, because it was just holding still.

    Awww… hi, little fish! You should be grateful for Brad saving you from that dragonfly nymph! He is your hero!

    What a patriotic-looking tank you have there (in honor of Flag Day?)!

    I figured you’d be a neon tetra-kinda guy…shiny and all…hope they all live in commensal bliss while you are away from them.

    (Apparently WordPress does not recognize “commensal” as a legitimate word, no matter how I type it/spell it. Hmmm…’course, neither does it consider “hmmm” a word…which it really isn’t anyway…so…stop typing, Carol…)
