My first two aquarium racks from Custom Aquariums finally arrived and I’m so happy! Watch me (with plenty of help) open the huge crates they came in and set them up in my fish room. Each rack holds two 120 gallon aquariums that will be filled with a variety of different fancy goldfish… I can’t […]

You guys, I have a confession. Remember last week when I visited Josh’s fish room and told you guys he was selling all his calico butterfly telescopes? Yeah… I bought some. 😛 Look at how gorgeous they are; how could I possibly resist? In this video you will see some “secret” footage from Josh’s fish […]

I realized that you guys haven’t had an update on my new discus in three months… can that possibly be right?! WOW, time flies! In this video, you’ll find out how I overcame their initial shyness, what changes I have made to the tank, what their favorite food is, and what new fish I have […]

It’s finally time for the update on my new 90 gallon aquarium that you’ve all been waiting for! Today I’ll reveal what fish I’m putting in my new tank. You guys have been following along in the setup of this tank from the very beginning, from my initial visit to my local fish store in […]

One of the questions you guys asked me in my live stream last month was “would you ever get an axolotl?”. Well I’ve always kind of liked axolotls and thought I could see myself having one as a pet, so I answered yes. It just so happened that one viewer watching that live stream had […]

Two of my three cats need a prescription diet to keep them healthy, which means all three of my cats eat a different diet and need to be fed separately. How do I manage? Up until now, I’ve been playing “musical food bowls” with my cats trying to get each cat to only eat out […]

I got a new butterfly telescope goldfish from Dandy Orandas four weeks ago. I always peruse the weekly auction just looking to see if there’s anything that catches my eye that I just “have to have”. What I look for in the ideal butterfly telescope is a nice tail that has a good horizontal spread […]

I have a confession. I’ve been secretly coveting Jikin goldfish for a while now, and Dandy Orandas has had many very nice ones available on their auctions lately. If you’re not familiar with jikins, The Goldfish Council has a good article about the variety here. I decided that if one came along that really caught […]

In addition to keeping and breeding butterfly telescope goldfish, which will always be my first loves, I’m hoping to expand into some other varieties that interest me as well. Watonai are one of those varieties! Watonai have elongated, slim bodies similar to a comet or common goldfish, but they have a long double tail. I […]

As you will probably remember, about a month ago I had the unique privilege of traveling to Dandy Orandas in Michigan to visit, show you guys a video tour of the facility, and even hand-pick my own fish in person! Well, the day we’ve been waiting for has finally arrived… the fish I hand-picked are […]
