We have a fish tank that sits in our kitchen nook area and for the last almost two years, it's been empty, as in no fish. I've kept replacing the water when it got low so the tank didn't get a water line around the edge, etc. But about 2 weeks ago, I emptied the tank of the water and cleaned it out really good. I rinsed the rocks, scrubbed the glass, bleached the green castle that was once white. And then the next morning, I went to Walmart and PetSmart and got the equipment I needed to replace some old filters, tubes, etc. I then filled the tank with water and added the chemicals to cure the tap water.

The tank has sat beautifully clean for the last week and half waiting for the water to warm, the water to adjust, etc.

Last night, after dinner we went to PetSmart and got fish for our tank. Rachel was soooo excited. She picked out two fish and Hannah picked out two and for some reason they both thought we all needed our own fish. Needless to say we came home with nine fish. They are now happily in their new home and the girls have loved watching the fish while sitting at the table for meals.

Very cool. We did the fish thing for a while when I was preggo with Aiden. They both had their own beta fish until one day Alexis' went belly up. we ended up flushing Andrew's a week later because it started swimming sideways all crazy. We are on fish strike for a while. :)
