---The whole aquarium

Sammy and Jackie on 17 Dec 2001:

Pics from January 27th, 2002
---I got more fishies!  Meet my baby fantails, Tony and Mellie!
---Tony
---Tony and Mellie explore their new tank
---Mellie creates an optical illusion with the reflection on the side of the tank.  There really are only two fish in there, honestly!
---Sammy and Jackie stare at me as if to say, "You got MORE fish?!   What's wrong with us?"  Don't worry, guys, I still love you bunches and heaps.  That's why I bought them a new, bigger rock.  :-) Jackie scraped off a couple scales trying to squeeze through the old, smaller one.
---A view of Sammy and Jackie's tank with the new rock and the quasi-new "No Fishing" sign. ;-)
