Fish!

We have fishies!

We went to Skipton's Pet Center, and talked for about an hour to a knowledgeable fish person there: he advised us that with a starter tank, we should go with about 6 fish for a while to get the biomass in the tank up to snuff, after which we could move to add more fish.

We ended up going with two Rainbow Tetras edit: sunday_silence looked at the pictures and told me they are probably something like Australian Rainbowfish, not tetras, which I think is right, since we we didn't want to get less than 6 tetras and didn't want to start by overstocking the tank, two orangey Platies, and two catfish of some kind that I can't remember Edit: albino dwarf corydoras, from sunday_silence again :). We also got a nice little chunk of log, and a hardy plant to go along with it.

I love fish. Watching them is so fun.
