I woke up yesterday feeling quite horrible and decided to come home from school after my first class. Nick IMed me while I was in my first class and informed me that he was bringing me home a present. Of course I got super excited and anxious. :)

When Nick got home he had to make 2 trips to the car and came back in with a full aquarium set. He got:
-three gallon aquarium
-rock/plant decoration
-water declorinator
-fish food

I was so stoked and amazed that he made the effort and thought so hard and long about exactly what type of stuff to get me. I must say that he picked out the perfect everything, since I have never seen an aquarium like the one he got. He also got the coolest rock decoration ever. The only thing he didn't get was the actual fish, because he wanted me to pick them out. I sought advice from a friend who works in a pet store and she told me the perfect type to get. I went this morning and picked out 2 zebra danios and a red ghost shrimp. She said that those are good hearty starters and that if I keep them alive for a few weeks I get to get some more kinds. My tank can hold 6-7 little fishies. I want 3 red neon tetras and 2 male guppies and am really impatient... I WANT THEM NOW!!!!! :P

Anyway, I am in love with my fishies and shrimp already. They are definately cool.

Here is the picture of the tank:

And of my fishies:

And of my shrimp: :)

Look for another post in a couple of weeks with ALL the fishies :D
