Saturday Photo Hunt #14: CLEAN!


This week's theme is "CLEAN".


The Saturday Photo Scavenger Hunt theme for this week is CLEAN ... and this theme couldn't have come at a better time.

Charmee has a school of fish that live in a tank in the dining room. He's been pestering Mom for much of her vacation to "CLEAN" the algae in the tank and replace some of the ornaments that had been lookin' kind of shabby!

As you well know, Mom's been pretty busy these last four weeks and the state of the fishtank hasn't been one of her priorities until I told her that this week's Saturday Photo Scavenger Hunt theme is CLEAN and she probably didn't have many photos that would fit the bill. So ... Mom cleaned the fishtank, bought a new hiding place for Ching-Ching (an emerald catfish that was a gift from one of Mom's students nearly two years ago), selected three plastic plants (she hasn't bought real plants in ages 'cuz they come with TONS of snails), adopted six lemon tetras, and spruced up her collection of PINK SpongeBob® "jellyfish" ... Charmee is furry happy that he can see his fish more clearly.

This is the BEFORE photo of a rather skuzzy-looking tank: Eeewwww! Algae is gross!

And this is the AFTER photo. The tank is nice and CLEAN!

The fish are happy ...

And Charmee is happy!

I am not a fan of the fish, so I tend to ignore the tank (and it's algae problem) ... As far as I'm concerned, fishies are for EATIN'!

Your Mommy did a good job cleaning the tank. Sounds like Charmee likes reality TV. If the tanks fuzzy then it's hard to see what's going on.

Happy Easter!

Snails are eating leftovers and fish poop and so they are very usefull and prevent there comes much algae. :) Maybe next time some real plants and just fish out some snails when they are with too many.

Great photos anyway!!

Greetz from Holland and Happy Easter. :)

Mom loves to put the snails in the tank, but the clown loaches eat all of the snails as soon as they hatch ... Mom hates the squishy snail eggs and the empty snail shells. Maybe she'll buy a Chinese algae eater like the one she has at school ... ?
