Happy's pizza did not make us happy.

Happy's pizza did not make us happy. It was generic. They had a wide variety on their menu. It was serviceable food but that's it. There's too many really good places around here to bother with mediocre. It was like somebody just ordered a bunch of off the shelf menu items and threw together a marketing campaign. I was not impressed.

Aquarium planning for the future

It looks like the aquarium may be finally settling down. Once it does the plan is to add an African Dwarf Frog (Hymenochiru). These are tiny little aquatic frogs that should fit well with the bet and the host shrimp. I'd also like to pick up a few more of the ghost shrimp to fill out the aquarium.

Kanicki gets married to Heather and a fun road trip.

Melissa's cousin married a guy named Kanicki. He's a nice guy but I really mentioned it because I think his last name is hilarious. It was a fun trip up to Saginaw and the way home ended up taking us through Midland. It seems the directions Melissa's parents got weren't the greatest and we ended up winging it all the way home. It was a lot of fun. I highly recommend avoiding interstates if you can help it. Rural highways are much more fun and make a trip really worth taking.

ghost shrimp are cool

Otter has really perked up and is started to try and scare off his reflection. However, the ghost shrimp have turned out to be cool little monsters. They're pretty active and are funto watch. And at 25 cents each they're the right price. :-)

We bought an aquarium

It started simply with a plan to resurrect my old fifteen gallon. However, four stores later, we had a new ten gallon instead of fifteen or five. The primary reason was we weren't sure that a fifteen gallon tank would be light enough forthe place we were going to put the tank. We also discovered that five gallon tanks are insanely expensive. The worse part is that we still forgot light bulbs for the hood. Oh well, our new beta (Betta Splendens) is named Otter and he seems to get a long well with the four ghost shrimp(Paleomonetes sp.). We've also got a couple of plants. One is called Red Ludwigia (Ludwigia glandulosa) which looks pretty cool. The other is a Frill plant (Myriophyllum scabratum ).
