Just thought I'd share a picture of our newest family member.
Yes I finally managed to get the water just about right for our new fish. It's taken me about 3 weeks to get everything suitable for our new pet. Em hasn't seen him/her yet & I can't wait to show Em when she gets back from Pa's later today. I have all my fingers & toes crossed that I can keep "fishy" (have yet to pick out a name) alive. I am known as a serial fish killer. I wasn't always a fish killer, when I was in my teens (way too long ago) I kept tropical fish. I think my problem stems from having such a small tank this time around (just over 5 litres). It's really hard to put the right amount of chemicals into the water.
