I had intended to announce that four new fish were added to the ranks yesterday. The Man brought home two Balloon Mollies, a Mickey Mouse Platy and an Albino Bristle-nose Plecostomus.
As of ten o'clock last night, three of the newbies were happily sharing the tankspace with the others, but the Pleco was nowhere to be seen.
This morning, I discovered the albino didn't make it. The Man doesn't seem to think the casualties should be recorded unless they make it one full day, but I am far too serious about this Death Toll-keeper job to get caught up on technicalities.

Welcome, surviving newcomers, Ringo, Waldo, and Steamboat Willie. We hope you enjoy your stay.
Happy trails, Bristol.

CeCe the Sunrise Platy was found dead at the bottom of the volcano. The Aquatic Forensics Department is baffled as to what made her throw herself in and tankmates remain tight-lipped about the incident, denying allegations that she was part of a ritual sacrifice.

John bought a 29 gallon fish tank and stand during the holidays and chose Superbowl Sunday to set it up...in the office. So instead of having the Exercycle of Doom behind me in webcam pictures, you'll see a tank of iddle fishies...whenever we get them. Right now it's just filled with 29 gallons of tub water.
|What he's got so far: (L to R) Tropical Coral Thing, The Castle at Rohan and the Fires Of Mordor.|
John is famous for starting this stuff and then getting frustrated halfway through it and cracking or breaking something. He's also great at using tools that are not meant for the task...like his fists.
Nevertheless, this is gonna be solely his thing (heh, see what I did there?). I'm only here to figure out the electricity issues: How long an extension cord we'll need and where to plug it in.
I'll also be in charge of reporting the deaths.
I may get a clipboard.
