A fishy post

As some of you may remember, my husband maintains an aquarium at the school where I work. He's taken care of it for years, much longer than I've worked there. It's a gorgeous planted aquarium (people always assume the plants in it are fake, they're so green and lush) about 75 gallons I think, with schools of Diamond and Neon tetras. Unfortunately, it's in the back of the library so visitors to the school (and some of the teachers) hardly ever get to see it.


Diamond Tetra


Neon Tetras


Last year Gregg's doctor friend wanted to take down and get rid of the beautiful custom built aquarium he'd had in his home (and Gregg had maintained) for over a decade. The family travels a lot and it had become something of a burden. When Gregg took it down, the friend told him to keep it and do whatever he wanted with it. Well, we have plenty of tanks in this house, and don't need any more empty ones to store in the garage, so he suggested that they might want to donate it to a school. They loved the idea! 

I took pictures of it and offered it to my school first, and the administration very enthusiastically said "Yes!" to having a second tank! It really is beautiful and obviously expensive. The band director helped us move it up to the school and for the last 6 months it's been sitting in a workroom, waiting. Decisions had to be made about where it was going to go, and of course what we were going to do with it. Then Covid-19 struck and school was no long open and I figured setting up the tank was put on hold indefinitely.

Then on Monday afternoon the bookkeeper texted me to tell me that the principal is ready to set up the aquarium (!!) and to ask if Gregg could prepare a quote for the cost of everything by the end of the week. Of course, we have to know what kind of tank to set up for them, and they were clueless about the options. To help them in the process, Gregg came up with ideas for three very different tanks that would be suitable. We're excited to see what they choose, and of course there will be lots of room to put our own touches (like with d├ęcor) into it. I'm excited! The new tank will go into the main lobby of the school so it should get lots of attention.

And maybe best of all, after the tank is up and running Gregg will make a little more money when he comes to our school, now that there will two tanks for him to care for instead of one. Yay!

Here are some of our ideas:

Tank #1: Tiger Barbs---easy to care for, active, pretty, inexpensive. Lots of varieties of them that you could mix, or you could stick to just one kind.





Tank idea #2: Fancy goldfish, like Shibunkins. They would be playful, goofy, and relatively easy to care for. The tank is a bowfront, 80ish gallons, with a stand and hood that look like brushed nickel. I think these goldfish along with a minimalist aquascape would look great. This is my favorite idea.




Tank #3: Rainbow Fish. They're gorgeous and make a beautiful display, and they're relatively easy to maintain. The downsides: they'd do best in a planted aquarium, which we already have, and the fish and their set up would be slightly more expensive than the first two options. Also, these fabulous colors take a while to develop in the fish, and until they do, they might be almost colorless and not very eye catching. But when they do finally color up....hoo boy!





What's your favorite idea of the three?

  1. They're all so beautiful! I've never seen anything like those rainbow fish. What a great, living way to celebrate the diversity of the kids in the school! But...the pretty goldfish may be more practical.
    What an interesting profession Gregg has.

    1. I like the idea of rainbow fish, but they're expensive and harder to keep than some things. We also have a planted aquarium in the library that could house rainbows if we wanted to do that later on.

    6. Hello Guys!!! I am Caro I live in Ohio USA I’m 32 Years old, am so happy I got my blank ATM card from Bill Dean. My blank ATM card can withdraw $7,000 daily. I got it from Him last week and now I have withdrawn about $15,000 for free. The blank ATM withdraws money from any ATM machines and there is no name on it because it is blank just your PIN will be on it, it is not traceable and now I have money for business, shopping and enough money for me and my family to live on.I am really glad and happy i met Bill Dean because I met Five persons before him and they could not help me. But am happy now Bill Dean sent the card through Fedex and I got it in two days. Get your own card from him right now, he is giving it out for small fee to help people even if it is illegal but it helps a lot and no one ever gets caught or traced. I’m happy and grateful to Bill Dean because he changed my story all of a sudden. The card works in all countries that is the good news Bill Dean email address is officialhackingcompany@gmail.com

  2. If the goldfish are easy to care for and maintain, that's my vote, too. They're so dramatic and fascinating for everyone. This is exciting. I had tropical fish when I was a kid. Three 10-gallon tanks. I loved them. Each tank had its own theme. When i went away to school I gave them to The Kid Brother. It was winter my first month away and he worried they would be cold. So he turned all the heaters up one night. He boiled all the fish. My mother said when she went in to get him ready for school the next day, the room smelled like a fish market (a bad fish market).

    1. Ewww! I'll bet that was AWFUL. Poor fish. Poor kid brother, too!

  3. Although I love our planted tank, this is in a school environment so my vote would be the goldfish. They are non stop motion which would fit a school environment best.

  4. Mollies (because of their eyes), swordtails (because of their tails), and of course 1 or 2 catfish to scutter around on the bottom.

    1. We have a few swordtails in the planted aquarium already!

  5. Those fish are little artworks. Difficult choice.

  6. my father had neon tetras when I was a child.

    I like #2; they remind me of koi fish.

  7. Your husband sounds like he is really talented at his job! How wonderful that he was able to help the school out by getting this donated to them. I like all three options but I would vote for #2 the Fancy goldfish, because if they are playful fish the kids would enjoy them! Let us know what the school decides.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I can't pick. But I sure can say, you two are artists!

    ReplyDelete
  9. This really IS exciting, and while I can't decide on a personal favourite, I am looking forward to reading what the school chose and how you went about it.
    What happened to the fish when Gregg had to take down the aquarium at the doctor's home? Did he move them to your own tanks at home?

    1. No, Vinod's fish were salt water. He has an office aquarium which is where I think at least some of the fish ended up. Gregg probably found another hobbyist to take the rest.

  10. As it is a school, shouldn't there be a school of fish? The principal can be a piranha. You can be an angel fish.

    Seriously though, I would go with the goldfish.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I would go for the fancy goldfish as that is what I have in my tank. They also seem to live for many years as opposed to tropicals that tend to die at the drop of a hat...or a whiff of paint....or a change of temperature!Being bigger than most tropicals they will also stand out more from a distance.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I would go with the goldfish, they are large and could be recognized as individuals by the kids.
    Cheers

  13. I like the fish in #1 or #2. You husband has a gift that brings joy to others that is so cool.

  28. I want to share my testimony on how i got the blank ATM card. I was so wrecked that my company fired me simply because i did not obliged to their terms, so they hacked into my system and phone and makes it so difficult to get any other job, i did all i could but things kept getting worse by the day that i couldn’t afford my 3 kids fees and pay my bills. I owe so many people trying to borrow money to survive because my old company couldn’t allow me get another job and they did all they could to destroy my life just for declining to be among their evil deeds. haven’t given up i kept searching for job online when i came across the testimony of a lady called Judith regarding how she got the blank ATM card. Due to my present state, i had to get in touch with Hacker called OSCAR WHITE of oscarwhitehackersworld@gmail.com and he told me the procedures and along with the terms which i agreed to abide and i was told that the Blank card will be deliver to me without any further delay and i hold on to his words and to my greatest surprise, i received an ATM card worth $4.5 million USD , All Thanks to OSCAR WHITE , if you are facing any financial problem contact him asap email address is oscarwhitehackersworld@gmail.com or whats-app +1(323)-362-2310
