WOW! There were so many BIG, beautiful, show-quality fish competing in the show and available for sale from the vendors at the first West Coast Goldfish Palooza event in San Jose, California!

Last Friday, you guys came along with me as I visited the Daytona Reptile Breeders’ Expo to pick out my dart frogs and see all the other great reptiles and amphibians on display.

The building has been insulated and drywalled, plumbing and electrical outlets have been added, and now we’re painting. It’s finally really starting to look like the vision I had in my head and I LOVE it! […]

We’re now in the third week of major construction on my fish room building! I’m completely insulating the building for proper temperature and humidity control. This means framing out the walls with 2x4s, adding insulation and drywall, adding an air conditioner and more. Things are really starting to come together, but I won’t be able […]

I visited my family in Minnesota a couple of weeks ago and while I was there we went to the SEA LIFE Aquarium located in the Mall of America, which is known for being the largest shopping mall in the world. We got to see the coolest aquatic animals while we were there, and I […]
