… Into an almost 70 gallon (US)/ 260 litre tank! The previous owners were turtles, so we’ve had to do some cleaning – no one likes turtle poo in their living room, right?, and checking for leaks – we prefer more water than the turtles and it would be a shame to have our walls crash simply because of too much water, right? Right??
Jenny has been the best kind of worker, she is stronger than us, taller than us, and her fingers don’t bend quite as much as ours.
All in all the perfect worker!
She has filled the tank and added some lovely stones she dug up from the yard. She’s also included a lovely piece of wood for us to rest on and under, as well as a lot of our favourite plants! We’ve even heard her say she will get some more plants for us! Yay!
At first we were extremely curious as to what was going on with our future home, but now we’re more into amplexing (google it if you want to, sensitive readers might not enjoy the descriptive details) 😉 We’ve been at it on and off for 3 days now.
Kermit: But you still haven’t layed any eggs?!
Albina: *goes to stare into the corner of the tank* why do you always have to make it seem as though it’s all my fault?
Kermit: *touches A’s booty* I’m sorry 😦
Albina: Did you just touch my butt?! *swims away*
Kermit: *looks confused* *eats a piece of salmon*
Anyway, we can’t wait to move in to our new home. Sadly it might take a while, because the water has to be properly cycled before we jump in and start pooping all over the place.
Kermit: I try to poop in the plant pots, though… *poops in the middle of the tank*
We’re so excited, and so grateful to Jenny, our best (and only) worker for making sure we get a safe, cozy and perfect new home 🙂 ❤
Jenny took a picture of the tank while she was washing it, to show the size of it. Note that our humans have a BIG bathroom!
Here is our home on it’s second day. Notice those lovely big stones we can rest on and seek shade under, such a thoughtful worker we have 🙂
Here is our home as of today. We’re really happy with the way it’s looking 🙂
Jenny is mumbling to herself about how she should arrange the plants, we’d advise her to calm down and wait until she has all the plants she wishes to have.
Also, we’re really hoping for one of those soap dishes many others have, just to help us keep our little noses above the water to breathe. Not that we find them an absolute necessity, but it would be a nice addition nonetheless 🙂
Last but not least, we wish this little guy all the best.
Kermit: I sure am not that brave – look how many fish there are!
Albina: *thinks to herself: why did I get the wimpy man?*
Kermit: Just look, there’s like a dozen of them! I would have jumped out of there!
