To live and die in Sleen

I don't seem to have much luck with map turtles. Tony died yesterday. He wasn't very active to begin with, and kept his eyes shut most (if not all) of the time. I was taking a real liking to the little fellow but he's gone to the great pond in the sky, and probably for the best, as his health didn't hold much promise for the future.

On the plus side, Alfred Jodokus is doing very well, and I finally found some cool names for all my reptilian buddies.

And if that wasn't enough, my wall-to-wall project is finally complete, with all 6 tanks in the living room finally populated. A sailfin pleco catfish and 7 cardinal tetras now inhabit the last "free" tank. Oh, and there's a new Betta splendens as well, this time bought at a more confidence inspiring store (which specializes in (pond) fish and supplies), and its colour is both beautiful and bright.
