A Very Merry Fishmas to You!

Something I found amusing recently is that almost all the items on my wish list for family are fish-related things!  My list includes auto-feeders, feeding rings, Saki-Hikari pellet food, digital thermometers, and other various fish things.  So who are these gifts for really I ask you… myself or the fish?!

Everything is going well with my fish, and I haven’t made any changes to the tanks recently, so I don’t have much of interest to report I’m afraid.  The two new broadtails are doing well, and they’re starting to really settle in to their new home.  The fish in the other tank are doing well too.  I keep checking all the auction and fish sale websites like I often do, even though I know I can’t get any new fish for quite a while.  My husband is being transferred to another state for work, so in the near future we’ll have to make a cross country move with all of our pets, furniture, and other stuff.  Moving the fish is going to be quite complicated, and I’m not sure if I’ll even be able to bring all of them.  So of course getting more fish right now is totally out of the question!  It doesn’t keep me from looking though, just the same.
