I love my Goldfish...

Post by Sbenson11 on Tue Sep 23, 2014 6:40 pm

So I'm in my office at work a couple of days ago, pounding out emails when my wife stickers her head in and says.

"Do you realize there is a bunch of pond snails in a Rubbermaid tub out here"

This would be one of the tubs i recently dumped full of pond plants. It's that time of year where I dump all of the stuff I propagate for selling during the summer. Now I just keep enough to keep them going during the winter until it's time to ramp up the production for the next pond season.

Anyway I reply with a concerned "Ok" not sure of her reason for mentioning it.

"Would it be ok if i put some of them in with the goldfish in my office" she asked. Never one to say no to my darling wife I said "sure".

Meaning no, but saying yes.

Well a few minutes later she returned with "You will never guess what happened when I threw in about a dozen of those snails?"

THEY ATE THEM Smile

Not one snail hit the bottom of the tank,

I love my goldfish, doing their part to rid the world of snails

Oh my Shocked not the best of stories, at least not on my my end!  Rolling Eyes

Well, I suppose your goldfish and my tequila fish should start sending post cards to each other....they can rant about their daily snail hunt....

I have been hanging out in Toronto the past few days. I just left a Big Al's location and I am trying to figure out if the black tip shark they have in there will fit in my carry on bag.

Probably not Sad

I have two small SW tanks running right now (55G & 33G) the 215 is still sitting idle. I have to get this thing finished, my Clown tang is growing like a weed and needs bigger space soon. If I don't get it done pronto, I am thinking of removing some or all of the live rock from the 55G he's in. When we got him in Feb he was the size of a quarter, 8 months later he's now the size of my hand.

The 215 is going to be wicked when it's finished. We'll have to have a ribbon ceremony for it.
