First attempt to assemble aquarium at home

Since I noticed that my little man really enjoy watching real fishes in our house in our hometown and even loved to play with toy fishes, I was almost to pursue my plan to assemble an aquarium here in our small crib. And exactly a week after we arrived here, I and hubby were looking for stuff to make that aquarium realized.

To our excitement, we brought our little man to a Japan surplus shop where there was aquarium surplus displayed. So we let him pick his stuff of choice to include inside his aquarium. But we were surprised that what he actually was grabbing were musical instrument toys including some hard ware stuff like small volts, screw and even a 1 4 stereo jack. I didn’t recognized it at first, but my hubby did. We just laughed at our little man for we were sure that he still didn’t really knew what he did. What’s sure for him is that he just enjoyed and had fun picking stuff which he thought were just knew toys he never had at home.

Should I say, our first attempt to assemble aquarium at home was never a success. There is still a second time, though I can’t say it would be that good, but I am not losing hope and still praying for things to be just fine.

Freshwater Natural Aquarium Documentary

I have just posted about the Sacramento Aquarium Society, a group of aquarists who are fascinated in rearing aquarium fishes and so today, I would like to share the society’s Freshwater Natural Aquarium Documentary which I grabbed a copy from their website.

Sacramento Aquarium Society

We all hear Sacramento as a known team in Basketball games and as well as the Sacramento rehab for alcohol and drug-related abuse. However, one thing which I’ve known from Sacramento, California is the Sacramento Aquarium Society or the SAS.

I’ve only read about the Sacramento Aquarium Society online and the group is really enthusiastic in rearing aquarium organisms. Both the noobies and the expert aquarists are helping each other to achieve the society’s objective.

How I wish there will be an active aquarium society also in the country.

Fry

A month ago, I was just amazed, because I didn’t expect it, seeing my medium-sized aquarium having little fishes – baby fishes or fry on it. Mollies or Molly fishes are the one I put there since they are not territorial like my flowerhorn fish, so I put there different breeds of Mollies. I don’t even know if there are preggy Mollies on there or not.

And because, accordingly, either the mommy or daddy fishes would probably eat their babies. Thence, I transferred the babies in a glass with white and some colored stones and freshwater aquarium grasses. The stones are for the freshwater aquarium grasses to hold on to and for decorations as well. While the freshwater aquarium grasses the one’s to provide oxygen for the fry.

Maybe, a month from now, I will be transferring them back to the medium-sized aquarium together with their daddy and mommy.
