Cleaning and a new house....

I know that I showed the newest arrivals to our fish tank the day.. well we had a mass turn up the tails on Friday night leading to a really big clean out of the fish tank yesterday. We now have only one yabbie left and both fish are still going. We bought the yabbie a new home (a fake log) he/she/it has burrowed down and made a home.

waiting for the tank to be cleaned. Tyler kept wanting to feed them all the time! SONY DSC

the survivor (?victor, ?last yabbie standing!)


Hiding behind the log


Taking back their tank!


So now we have a much cleaner (although as I write this the water is a bit cloudy again - sigh!).

So the fishies and the yabbie are in their nice clean HOME SWEET HOME!

I should just add that it was a combination of riduculously hot days, to many yabbies and probably lack of food - they really cant survive on fish food alone! that lead to their demise!

enjoy J

Aww I hope you can figure out the problem! Fish are so much work!

Looks like a lot of work! But great take on the theme posting the fish's home sweet home!

Amazing, that little fish can be so much work! Nice shots!

Aww, that sucks that you had so many die all of a sudden! Isn't that weird how it happens seemingly at random like that?

What a great take on Home Sweet Home! (I used to love my fish tank, but HATED cleaning it!)

That looks like a very sweet home for those fish! :)
