Feeling slightly guilty about this, but too late now. James and I had an argument this morning and so James decided to take me to Coburg to say sorry (we were already in the car). I was a bit annoyed by this, as I didn’t think we should get new fish, but James insisted and said he wanted to look at tanks anyway. So we went.
They had a tank full of Madagascar rainbows. They were 4 for $10. Yes, we got 8. I think this will basically make our tank full, as they may end up getting to 4-5 inches each. If the tank wasn’t well filtered and heavily planted (well, it will be more so eventually) I would never have considered that many. Originally I only wanted 4… This of course means that I don’t have to name the two lonely rainbows. The chick at the place said, too, that they’re quite hard to breed.
We also got 8 Colombian tetras, because they are beautiful (sort of light blue and pinkish), and were also 4 for $10. We decided to put them straight into the main tank, rather than overloading the qt. We’re going to leave everyone in the qt for another week or so, and so gradually move them over. The tank will look awesome then!
