Update on Baby Fish - PICTURES!!

Fish Tank

All 4 of my platy fry are still doing great! If you didn't read my previous journal entry, my platy had babies and they're so cute!! I've never had baby fish before, so it's been a learning experience. I thought one of my babies had died because I couldn't find him anywhere and I hadn't seen him in about 4 days. I had checked the filter and everything. Then after the 4 days went by, my filter wasn't working, so I took it apart, and he was in there!! He was fine and he's eating and everything. When he got stuck, he was the biggest fish, and now he's by far the smallest. He used to be the bully, but definitely not any more. One of the babies is about twice the size of the others and he's the new bully. lol

Here's pictures from when they were first born:

These pictures are from today. They're 3 weeks old now! I think they're looking a lot bigger. :D

The last picture is of my favorite baby that I have named Miso. He's the only one with a lot of black spots, and he's by far the cutest!!

Also, I'm thinking about doing $5 chibi commissions and $10 anime commissions. Would anybody be interested in something like that? I'd also do $5 cute animal commissions, too. Let me know if it sounds like a good idea! :hug:

Fish Tank

I got a new fish tank for Christmas, and I bought my first fish less than a week ago. I got two fish, a swordtail and a platy. After a few days, the platy started looking really sick. I went to the pet store and got an air pump and some ammonia reducer to see if that would help, but by the time I got home, she was already dead. I was really sad about it for a while, but I went to put in the air pump and I saw BABY FISHIES!! So I have 5 platy fry (fry are baby fish). The fry look super healthy and happy. I guess the mom died while giving birth since they usually have about 30 babies.

Then the swordtail started getting sick a few days ago, and yesterday he died. The babies still look like they're doing really well, but I'm getting worried since both adult fish have died. I had my water tested and all levels are perfectly fine, so that's good. :D

Does anyone have experience with baby fish?! Is there anything I should know or anything special I can do?! I've been feeding them crushed up flakes and brine shrimp. They're 5 days old now!

They're just sooooooo cute! I hope they all survive! One of the babies is a HUGE bully though, and swims around terrorizing the other babies. I have named him Jerkface. ;)

OMG I'm sooooo tired today! I was working outside on my garden all day today. I'm so sore. Ugh! I still have so much work to do. I think I have about 200 more plants to plant. LOL :heart:

Hmmm...what else has been going on with me lately? I've been busy with my shop, coming up with new products and making new stuff. I had the WORST back ache EVER last night. I tried to walk from my bed to my computer and I took one step and literally couldn't move anymore. I had to yell for my hubby to come "move me" because I was stuck! :( Not good at all. But it feels a little better today. :D

I just started my own website last night! I worked on it all of last night and most of today. I know there's still TONS of work to be done. A lot of it still needs content, and I need to work on the overall design. But I'm happy with how it's turning out. It's hard to make a website from scratch.

What do you think of it? Is there anything that needs to be fixed or changed? fashioncandyjewelry.com

I'm hoping to add a lot more content this week. I want to be finished with it by the end of next week.

My Grandma Died

My grandma passed away over the weekend. It was pretty unexpected. She went to the hospital because she was sick and they found out she had colon cancer. They did surgery, but they couldn't get it all. She died on Saturday.

I'm going to her funeral tomorrow and it's just so upsetting! I haven't really had a chance for it all to sink in yet, but I'm sure it will tomorrow at her funeral. I'm really dreading going there.

RIP Grandma Mitzi

I've sold 3 Portable Fish Tank Necklaces already, and I'm currently taking orders for more. I have a few reserved so far and I only have the supplies for about 5 more. There's one currently in my shop: www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?… Any others will have to wait a few weeks. I ordered more supplies, but they will take a while to arrive.

Please send me a note, comment here, or contact me on Etsy if you wish to add your name to the list to reserve your fish tank necklace.

Please note that I'm out of the little seaweed for the fish tank necklaces. So any reserved will be created without the seaweeds. But you can chose from any combination of pink, yellow, orange, green, red, and purple pebbles.

LAZY dog!!

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 30, 2008, 11:32 AM

I think I have the laziest dog ever. She sleeps ALL day until about 5pm when my husband gets home. She literally doesn't get out of bed until then! Sometimes she'll wake up and join me in the computer room and sleep on my computer chair. But she's NEVER very active.

She does play fetch though. But it's not "normal" fetch. It's LAZY fetch! She invented this game herself. :star:

Take a look:
Lazy Fetch Video


You have to watch the whole thing! She's hilarious. I love my little dog! :love:

She's a Boston terrier/pug mix. I think that's why she's so lazy. That's a lethal combination of lazy dog breeds!

Don't forget to rate my video and leave me comments! :heart:

First of all, I HAVE To say thank you for 25,000 pageviews!!! I'm so excited! Thank you all!

:star: :star: :star: :star: :star: :star: :star: :star:

Why are you all so eager to have snow? Let me tell ya, it's not much fun to shovel 3 feet of snow out of my driveway every single day. I'm about 5'1" and weigh about 115 lbs. It's sooooo hard to shovel such a long driveway by myself. I was in tears one day because the driveway was literally full of snow that was taller than me! It took about 3 hours to shovel it. I was freezing cold and sweating like crazy at the same time.

Being freezing cold isn't much fun either. Neither is trying to drive. It's dangerous and scary. I can't walk my dog (because she's wimpy and hates the cold). Our pipes are frozen and I couldn't shower yesterday.

I haven't gotten my mail in about 2 weeks because the snow plows keep plowing it over and burring it and by the time I wake up in the morning, the snow is frozen and it's impossible to shovel. So, I had to cancel Netflix. Plus, now I have to WALK to the post office (in the freezing cold) to mail my packages.

Winter sucks and I don't understand the jealousy. GIVE ME 70 DEGREE WEATHER PLEASE!!!!!

I hope you all had a FANTASTIC Christmas! :hug: :heart: Mine was so much fun! I went to my parents' house and stayed for a few days. It was great! :star:
