  1. @Coryyou must be having a blast with all the progress that is being had (well.. that is.. tempered with the stress too). 🙂 When I was a kid, my parent bought a "new to us" house so that they could eventually store my Dad's Snap-on truck in a garage. The house had two 2-car garages that were set at 90 degrees from each other. They literally cut the front 8-10 feet off one of the garages, and built a two story high "truck" garage in between. This allowed Dad to park his truck at home, out of sight, per county regulations.. the bonus was not ever having to go outside in the snow to find him at dinner time. The downside? Shoveling a driveway that was 4 cars wide in Wisconsin winters. LOL. 🙂 Anyway, due to my his entrepreneurial spirit I've come to appreciate anyone who can make a go at being a small business owner... and fulfilling their expansion dreams. Keep up the great work! You are definitely doing something right! 🙂 Thanks for sharing the progress!
  2. I am so excited to be here. about a year ago I lept back into the aquarium hobby with both feet. As a kid I won a goldfish at the fair... and she lived for 12+ years in my 10 gal tank. At the time my mom thought I was neglecting Goldie, but now that I've learned more about the hobby, I'm betting I did JUST FINE. Sometimes procrastination is a good thing. Anyhoo, I was given a betta last summer when a friend from work moved onto another job. Instead of keeping it on my desk like she did, I brought it home for my daughter. Since she's a teenager, and into anything social justice related, the one gal tank was a NO GO. LOL. So, he quickly moved on up to a 20 Long. Within 6 weeks or so we had two 20 gal tanks, a 10gal, plus the one gal for fry brought home from petsmart... as well as a new to me 10gal for my desk at work. LOL. Anyway.. I'll take some pics of the tanks in the comments below. 🙂 they are a work in progress. tee hee. My big aquarium dream? Setting up a minimum of a 55gal, and making it an amazon biotope. specifically for the Violet Corydoras.. It'll be a Jamari River clearwater (floodwater- clearwater) setup... and I'm hoping to have it be a breeding project too.. so I'm trying to figure out the best species for it. Luckily I found a great Journal article (http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/1676-0611-bn-2019-0803) with details of other fish in the areas, as well as collection locations.. My goal is to try to be as faithful as possible, to the biotope, but within my aquarium size & budget, and what is currently available for fish. If you've created a similar biotope, or have visited the area I'd love any insights you might have for me! 🥰 I created pinterest board: https://pin.it/36rJixl if you'd like to follow my planning process.
