Fish are Friends, Not Decorations
Hey, my name is Nicole and this blog is mostly dedicated to my favorite hobby, fishkeeping, but lately has become more of a personal blog. If you have any questions about freshwater fish or plant care, feel free to message me!

If you know it’s annoying when people ask why the hell did you ask in the first place? 
Seriously, I won’t follow because you asked and even if I wanted to follow I’m now less inclined to because you asked. 
Does anyone else find this annoying??

aardwellasked, "Hey! These are fun to do... So: Dear person I’m jealous of,"

Ummm I don’t really have anyone I’m really jealous of! 

So, 

Dear person I’m jealous of, 

I don’t think you exist

Best wishes, 

me

skittles-the-little-dinosaurasked, "Dear Santa"

Dear “Santa”, 

Your secret was ruined for me in 2nd grade because I couldn’t sleep and had to go downstairs to see my parents putting presents under the tree 

Sincerely, 

A 21 year old who’s still heartbroken over ruined secrets

Anonymousasked, "Dear ex bestfriend:"

Dear ex bestfriend, 

You’re a cutthroat manipulative bitch who talked me into dating the worst piece of shit this planet could possibly offer, who happened to be your ex, and then you proceeded to making him cheat on me with you…multiple times I believe? You were the worst friend I could ever have and the abuse through elementary school was horrid! You cannot hit and beat on someone and then treat them like they’re the best person in the world. That is abuse and it was terrible and I don’t know how I put up with it. I hate you and I hope the worst luck in your future endeavors.

Love, 

me

I want it.
I need it.

Actually, this is not a suitable home for any type of animal. Despite what many pet-store employees would lead you to believe, bettas are tropical fish and require a heated, filtered, tank in order to thrive. The pet industry today is, unfortunately, mostly about making money, and selling these kinda of setups in bulk is currently the way they’re making the most cash. Here are a few links on betta care in case you’re curious:

where I would never buy this for a fish, I would buy it for pennywort and let it completely take over and even cascade out of it. That would be hella sweet

Anonymousasked, "Have you ever done a dirted tank before (or know of anyone that has one on tumblr)? I am looking to start one up but I have quite a few questions and no one to ask!"

fishmostly:

aquasplendens has been doing the dry start method if I remember correctly? I think other people on here might have dirted tanks?

Ecology of the Planted Aquarium by Diane Walstad  (free pdf download)

Try the 3rd link first, it has a step-by-step thing that I hope will answer any questions. Then if you still have questions try other people on tumblr.

Yep. I did dry start for about 5 weeks then flooded the tank- gave the plants a chance to build strong roots.
I’m still doing emersed growth with HC in a separate container though!
