|Squirtle, and our giant goldfish (the fish has sadly gone to the pond in the sky).|
Anyhoo, as part of our never ending renovations before we sell the house, we decided to knock out this paragon of eighties architecture.
|The old tank that was built in, complete with kid-proofing and kid.|
|Cleaning it out on moving day.|
|New tank, precariously resting on a TV stand.|
|Catching all the feeder fish that lived in the old pond! Hours of fun...|
Given how much fun he's had since we moved him into the new tank, I now feel like we'd been keeping him in some kind of turtle-torture cave for the past few years. Still, he's out now, and loving it.
Turtle renovation: done!
Oh, extra bonus shot of our other fish tank. You can't keep fish in with a turtle (unless they're big enough), the turtle will eat them! As we learned to our shame...it was two fish-buying sessions and a lot of "where did those fish go!?" before we worked it out.
So when the kid wants goldfish and guppies, you get a kids tank for them. So we did.
