I keep fish. Until today I had three weather loaches, Sixteen White Cloud Mountain Minnows, and a male and two female American-Flag Fish. So called because the males look like the American Flag. They're mostly vegetarian, and the males especially, are renowned for being belligerent arseholes. Compatible tankmates should be "robust enough to survive or fast enough to escape" They get to two-and-a-half inches long (the females are a little smaller). And they look like this:

I say, until today, because today I found "Mr Grumpy" tangled up in some thread I'd used to attach moss to a piece of wood. The thread had been wrapped around the wood, and a piece of rootlet, and he'd got in between it, probably to munch on a bit of algae (Like most fish they're perpetually hungry, but apparently are a little calmer if they've got something to snack on throughout the day. The stereotypes just keep building up don't they? Its most unfair) he'd got trapped, and suffocated.


Mr Grumpy. c2010- 7th November 2011. Leaves behind two female companions, but no children.

I am never being a student again. Full time classes suck.

It's only for this semester, mind. Then it's all curriculum design for my Masters Project. (IMP)

Having a full-time job and doing a masters sucked too actually. Good luck with the project.

idk. I did effectively a full time job with classes while doing my student teaching, and at least there was variety in my life. But then, doing two part time obs and a full time PhD sucked as well.

Lemme rephrase: full time classes while in a post-dump depression that just makes you want to stare into space all day rather than do any work, suck.

No argument there. I wasn't intending to imply that there weren't different degrees of suck going on. *hugs* :-(
