The new addition

>> Friday, June 6, 2008

Let's hope that we don't screw this up:) We have heard that salt water tanks are hard work but we decided to buy a little used tank and see what creatures we could have live in our family room. Yesterday we got a few new pieces of live rock and some sand. So far we only have the 2 crabs in there and they came with the tank, I thought that we had killed them but it appears crabs are quite hearty little things. The rock has some pretty red sponge and purple coral on them - it is neat to watch b/c there is just so much alive in there. We are hoping to get our "clean up" crew (shrimp, crabs, snails, and maybe a cucumber) Sunday. The girls are having a ball so far with it and that makes the work so worth it.

It's beautiful! It'll be so fun when/if you get some fish! Good luck and have fun with it.

Have a good weekend, Jessie - nice to see you - Kellan
