Another interest that I will now officially introduce to you guys. I'ved been in this hobby for 5 years. My brother-in-law taught me the secrets behind this fishy thing. Having an aquarium at home is very therapeutic.

For the past few weeks, I kinda changed my approach on blogging. Less drops and blog hops, limited posts... I decided to bring back the other things that used to brighten me up.
Just over the weekend I was able to accomplish 2! A set of Portraits and a newly overhauled 100 gallon aquarium.
Last sunday, my dad was very happy to give me a Flowerhorn. Yes, another hobby that we both love :D He has been growing flowerhorns for years now. There's this saying that Flowerhorns are also considered to be as lucky fishes. Those symbols on their body has meaning. And it will even bring more luck if you share it. Like, giving out the baby fishes, or just giving a fish to a friend. If not, they will absorb the bad luck that was meant for you.
*All these are based on stories from friends and some books. So far, the family's been doing ok. I mean, Alright!
This fish is only 5-6 inches long. The challenge to give it a big head and to make it red is still there, yahoo! I used to own Flowerhorns and other fresh water fishes. But within the past 2 years, we have been trasferring from one apartment to another. That activity became stressful for the fishes. Anyway, with some of the old fishes (a catfish, a parrot-heart and a frontosa), a new one joined in. During my free time, I seat in front of the aquarium. I can stare at it the whole day. My son was also happy seeing our aquarium up and running again. He grew up with these fishes around. As a matter of fact, one of the first words he uttered was "fish".
