Killa's got a brand new bowl

In front of me right now sits two notebooks, with numerous pages filled with random scribblings. Notes while I'm on the phone, lists of things to do and little doodly-doos.

One of the lists though is labeled "general todo (personal)"

Things that I need to get done, but seem to end up doing so many other things before. At the top of that list was cleaning out the fish bowl. You see, about 2 months ago I had a tragedy here. Sting passed away, due to a toxic environment... when I was little, I had fish, and because I would clean their bowl multiple times a week, their life expectancy was rather short...

So, when I took up owning a fish this time, I thought it would be better to just leave the bowl alone... apparently 6 months is too long...

RIP Sting. RIP.

But I did enjoy having a little friend around. So a new fish came along, his name is Killa.

Killa

And he has been due for a cleaning... so yesterday I set to work to give him some fresh water. Problem is that today, the water still hasn't unclouded... I exchanged about 75% of the water for new water, but it it still reeeeallyyy dirty looking. Ugh.

plant life

When I bought this plant back in May or so it only had 6 leaves on it. I thought I was going to kill it because the tops would stick out of the water and dry out and turn brown. So I pulled all the dead stuff off and wouldn't ya know, that little plant has flourished! Its has about 13 leaves on it now and new ones just keep growing! So much cooler than plastic ;)

black rock

I couldn't believe how much algae I sucked up out of the stones. Waaaaayyy more than I expected.

my pretty black rocks

This time too I separated all the big rocks from the little pebbles. I like the way it looks with the bigger rocks on top and because I've not sorted them out after cleaning the last couple times I've cleaned it they were pretty much all mixed together.

Please don't judge me now... I swear, I really do have better things to do with my time than blogging about cleaning a fish bowl... ;)
