Spooky Halloween Goldfish Tank

Last Halloween I started the tradition of decorating my 75 gallon goldfish tank for the holidays, and since then I've done everything from Christmas to the Fourth of July!  Here's this year's Halloween themed tank.  And I didn't plan it this way, but the tank is now home to my "ghost" bristols (matte white bristol shubunkins) so they fit right in with the spooky theme.  They loved the decorations, by the way.  I think these particular fish are used to having more decorations and/or plants in their tank, so they became much more comfortable with all the Halloween decorations around them.  They even spawned!  Next week I'm decorating the tank for Dia de los Muertos, so keep an eye out for updates!  ;)  Did you decorate your tank for Halloween this year?  If you did, feel free to share your photos on my Facebook page!

The Ghost Bristols Are Spawning!

Over the past month the two biggest ghost bristols (Wraith and Poltergeist) developed breeding stars, so I figured they were both males.  I was counting on the smallest one then, (Haunt) to be female so I could breed them.  But today I got a surprise!  Poltergeist was chasing Wraith around like he was trying to spawn with her(?!).

Tank Talk | I'm Getting New Fish!

My shipment of Dandy Orandas butterflies should be here tomorrow!  I'm so excited, but also nervous.  I hope nothing goes wrong during shipping; I seem to have terrible luck when it comes to receiving shipped fish.  But DO is usually really good about their packing and shipping, so it should be fine...
