Wordless Wednesday (not so wordless)

The above photo was taken the day we got the fish tank. We had 8 fish there including 1 cat fish and sucker fish (algae eater), which you can't see from the picture. The cat fish was hiding inside the ship and the sucker fish is too busy cleaning the tank. After a few months some of the fish died and at one point we only got 4 (cat fish, sucker fish, two tiger fish) left. Eventually we were down to two fish.

We went out and bought two more algae eater and two snails to help clean the tank. The snails died when the tank got clean and the two algae eater got eaten by now big cat fish. When the kids school close for the summer, we went out and bought 4 more fish. And guess what, the cat fish ate them too. Now that cat fish have to go, anyone interested on caring for big cat fish? It is about 5 inches long. I can't buy more fish until I get rid of it. That thing is getting very expensive to keep. The fish that I bought cost about $2 each and he/she ate them all.

Dear Dear, if I could I watch your kids and take that catfish off your hands :) My son began with aquariums a couple three years ago. So it was the catfish eating everything. He'd get like 20 little fish at a time and they'd all disappear. Happened several times. He gave that tank away and made me so mad cuz it was about 6 feet long and had a crawdad in it. Then started with saltwater tanks and corals and crabs. Something is eating his saltwater fish too. Meanwhile he's gone into the tank cleaning business on the side, to help support the cost of maintaining the tank and it's inhabitants.

I have a continuing program of research (What mother doesn't?) in the laboratory and in the field (normally I would have said indoors and out). I'm working for my Masters, (the whole darned family) and already have five credits (four sons & one daughter, 1 joined the working community, 4 are being educated @ home ). Of course, the job is one of the most demanding in the humanities (any mother care to disagree?), and I often work 14 hours a day (24 is more like it). But the job is more challenging than most run-of-the-mill careers, and the rewards are more of a satisfaction than just money."
