Betta Sorority Aquarium

My cat Joey suffers from dry skin and needed a humidifier to add moisture to the air. I decided to do an aquarium set up instead of an ugly humidifier. In order to get the aquarium I sold off 4 of my small aquariums then snagged the 20 gallon long with heater, rocks and a […]

Relaxing With Joey

This boy has been snuggly all day. I just love it, but he’s got to get off my chest soon because he weighs 11 pounds and feels quite heavy on my chest. It’s great when he’s on my legs though. That’s helpful, so is oxygen, which I’m fighting for right now. Lol One of the […]

Betta Fish Change Colors

Most of the time people assume the change of color in a Betta is negative, but in this case it’s a marbling gene that causes the fish to change colors. November 8th when I purchased Isaiah, he was primarily white. I posted a photo of him back then showing at much. Nov 8th Here is […]

Lentil the White’s Tree Frog

Lentil is just a few months old but he’s pretty aggressive when it comes to hunting. Today’s photos were taken just as crickets were added to the terrarium home. I’m able to tell the difference between the frogs by their markings. Lentil is the only frog so far with a spot on both arms in […]

Therapy Review: Lowered Expectations and Less Stress

Dr. D and I discussed the recent firing of my new CNA. I fired her for several reasons and fired the company, too. My insurance covers a CNA that can take me to the store and to doctor appointments. It turns out this CNA was driving me around w/o a drivers license or insurance. I […]

Surgeon. CNA. Spoiled Me.

(sigh) I saw The Surgeon for the last time yesterday afternoon. I didn’t expect him to hug me but I’m glad he did. I gave him his painting and as expected, I cried at the end. As a matter of fact I got in the car, went to the store, purchased 4 pints of ice […]

A Frog named Lentil

This is Lentil, my Australian Tree Frog. This morning I woke to find three beautiful mushrooms in Lentil’s terrarium. The mushrooms grew out of a patch of orange moss that grows along side driftwood stationed close to the watering hole. Although these frogs will tolerate being held, it’s not suggested you do so. I hardly […]
