Solid Gold Sketchbook

Solid Gold Sketchbook

Here’s some of the art I’ve been working on lately.  I’m actually a little embarrassed to admit that up until now, I’ve just been working with crappy Crayola colored pencils for my drawings.  But, I got some new art supplies that I’m really excited about.  I now have a set of 60 Faber-Castell Polychromos colored…

The Reality of Goldfish Breeding…

The Reality of Goldfish Breeding…

The butterfly fry are 4 weeks old now and I finally found time to do their first intensive cull, which strangely left me feeling simultaneously demoralized and hopeful.  In this cull I was looking for any fry with crooked backs, collapsed tail fins, or a single tail fin.  Since they’re so small yet, those are…

Dandy Orandas Butterflies Update

Dandy Orandas Butterflies Update

Butterflies in a Bowl…

These two are my favorites of all the butterflies I have.  They are Minai (a female red/white) and Clyde (a male panda), both from Dandy Orandas.  I hope I can get these two to spawn because I think they’d make beautiful babies.  Aren’t they gorgeous?  I like that their body shapes are full and rounded,…

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…  Video Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RoccFjERFuU…
