There’s a Newbie in the House!

Hi,

April went to the pet store Sunday to purchase bird food, crickets, salt for the aquarium and a couple fish.  That is always a dangerous thing around here.  Sending April to the pet store for a few items.

She came back with bird food, crickets, a couple fish and a new fire-bellied toad called Limey.

She says she couldn’t resist it because Limey is bright lime green–a different color from both Greenie and Brownie.  Well, we hope she doesn’t find any other “different” colored toads or we’ll be too crowded.  Three fire-bellied toads and two fire-bellied newts are just about the limit for our 30 gallon tank.

She also bought a female guppy for the male guppy.  Ever since his female died he has been chasing the neon tetras around.  He is very aggressive about it.  And, we have two more neon tetras to watch swim around.  They seem to be the most hardy fish so far to live with us and our toxins.  None of the original neon tetras that were in the tank when we came have died.  There were a lot of baby guppies for awhile, but now there are only about 4 or 5.  April doesn’t know if they died because of our toxins, were eaten by the other fish or if we ate them and no one is telling.  Mums the word when it comes to who ate what fish–if you know what we mean.

Anyway, below are some pictures of the newbie.  You can decide for yourself if he is that cute.  April isn’t sure whether it is a boy or a girl.  We know, but again, we aren’t talking.  She will just have to wait and see if he starts barking for Brownie or if Greenie starts barking for her.

Check out the videos.  There is a new one that stars Limey.

 Kind Regards,

Greenie, Brownie and the newbie – Limey
