Moss Posted January 3 Share Posted January 3 (edited) Hi everyone, I am new to the group and new to using forums (hope this post goes well 😉. I live in Victoria, BC, Canada. I teach at a local high school and currently have 8 aquaria set up in my classroom (only 5 with animals in them). When I was a kid, I had a 10 gallon tank with neons. During my university years I worked at UVic in the aquatic unit looking after 10,000 gallon recirculating seawater systems and fresh water flow through systems. I learned lots doing that, but am definitely still learning now. My project over the Christmas break was to give my goldfish a new home. They were in a 30 gallon tank, but I found a used 55 gallon tank for them and built a sturdy stand for it. I’ve had these goldfish for over 5 years now. Funny story there…I had a tank set up with no fish in it. It had been set up for some time, and I think my students were wondering why I hadn’t put any fish in there yet. One day (a Tuesday), I noticed two small feeder comets in the tank. I asked who put them in there and, after class, two sweet grade 9 girls fessed up. Their plan was to purchase a goldfish a day in my tank until I noticed. I asked them if they had other fish. They replied yes. I asked where they were. They said in a jar in their locker! So, we got the fish and put them in with the others. They named them after the day of the week that they were to be introduces to the tank: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Unfortunately, Wednesday and Friday died shortly after being introduced to the tank, but I still have the other three. I love them. They are like my little puppies who greet me every morning looking for their breakfast 🍳 The girls who gave me the fish have now graduated, but it’s nice that they come in sometimes to visit the fish and me 🙂 Edited January 3 by Moss Changed the photo… 1 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
