Well, ladies and gentlemen, just the other day I found a tiny little baby guppy in our fish tank.To keep it out of harms way we put it in a measuring cup that hangs into the water from the side of the tank. i haven't decided on a name for it yet... if you have any ideas, please comment!
Ever since school ended I'v been in denial about wearing kaki. To tell you the truth, i don't want to see anything kaki for the rest of my life! So, my mom and I decided to do something about it! Yesterday we took a pair of kaki pants, put them in blue dye and miraculously changed them from kaki to wacky! Lol. I know its cheesy but whatever. Instead of using traditional tie-dye we did something called Low-water Immersion Dyeing. For a tutorial click here.
After the unfortunate death of my carnival gold fish my tank sat vacant. The friendly humming of the filter was gone, and no light fell through its glass walls. Until, that is, today. My neighbor generously offered to give me some of her guppies and now my tank has four beautiful residents. See picture above. I found a website with the most popular fish names on it, along with their meanings. Here is what i've decided to name them:
Alexander: meaning "defender of mankind," dark grey and white with bright orange fins and tail
Eve: meaning "life," dark grey and white with an orange tail that has dark specks on it
Toni:meaning "priceless," mostly white with iridescent specks and a double tail
Jenna:meaning "smooth and white,"all white
Even though I'm being very optimistic in this post, I know that fish keeping is hard. In the professional fish care world deaths are common place. Hopefully I will have better luck and these fish will live long and happy lives.
