That Fishy Stuff

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. I’ll post some updates on my tanks tomorrow when I do water changes.

Oh, I went to Petsmart today just to look around but I ended up walking out with 11 otos and I only paid $8.50. So it was a good day! :D

National Aquarium Australian Exhibit

Mar 1
I got a behind the scene look at the National Aquarium in Baltimore, MD. 
That’s right there is a small section of their filtration system. They have a separate room for their biological filter, which only a select few employees are able to go in because they don’t want new bacteria entering their systems. 
The room I was in are mostly pumps and the mechanical filtration. The mechanical filtration uses sand.
As for chemical filtration, they use ozone to kill off everything in the water. I think they said around 3-10% percent of the water goes through the chemical filtration.

I trimmed up my sword a few days ago and it’s sending out a new blade each day. :D

I did a water change and trim. It doesn’t look too bad after neglecting it for so long.

I’m taking a fish biology course at my university and suddenly everyone thinks they know everything there is about fish keeping.

This girl who’s a graduate student said “fish only grow to the size of their environment/tank” I corrected her in a nice, friendly manner and she rolled her eyes at me and walked away.

This was what I was really thinking GIRL, YOUR GOLDFISH LIVED TO BE 1 YEAR OLD BEFORE IT DIED IN YOUR 10 GALLON TANK SHOWS ME YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT FISH KEEPING!!

The Petsmart in my city doesn’t have their dragon scale bettas for adoption yet. I asked a manager why they weren’t and he said that his store isn’t one of the stores to have them for adoption. He also said stores that aren’t high volume will have them for adoption.

So I left Petsmart with no betta but I got two Peacock Gudgeon. :)

I’m  going to go to a few local Petsmart and see if they have bettas for adoption.
