New Family Members

Honestly, I am not a person who is interested in having any pet as I think that it is too troublesome. It doesn’t mean that I don’t like them though.

Hubby loves to have an aquarium at home. He had been talking about it and had been googling about fish. When we stayed in the rented apartment he always wanted to buy an aquarium but I insisted that it was not a good time because we didn’t have enough space for it. Now that we have moved to our own home he has got all the space that he needs. 

Last Thursday when I got home from work I saw this empty fish tank sitting in the study room. I was wondering how come he didn’t buy any fish yet. According to hubby, the aquarium water needs to go through what they call the “Nitrogen Cycle” process where bacteria are slowly established in the aquarium to help with the conversion of ammonia to nitrite and then the nitrite to nitrates. (okay, I am not that smart to know all this stuff but I had received a lecture from hubby)

This process should take about a minimum of 2 weeks before fish can be safely added into the aquarium, but hubby couldn’t wait any longer before he could get his fish so he tried to speed up the cycle process by purchasing pure ammonia and a bacteria culture product. And off we went to an aquarium shop on the weekend to purchase his pets. =P

While waiting for hubby to choose his fish, I randomly took some pictures.

Okay, the final product is completed and he is happy now. He can just sit there and “watch” the fish swim here and there. **rolling eye** =O

So yeah, new “family members” in the house.

He loves them so much, he wouldn't be bored. He is really into the fish... He's crazy, he's planning to buy a saltwater aquarium for Nemo fish. Can't help! >_<
